Placing rear up-firing speakers up high?
I want to get a soundbar and speaker setup that gives me a good spatial effect. Some options include rear speakers that are up-firing to really deliver the Atmos sound. My room configuration is going to force me to put speakers pretty near my ceiling.
I don't think there will be enough space above the speaker for it to make a difference so all sound, Atmos or not, would just sound like it's coming from behind/above me? Would it be different if I flipped the speakers upside down and made them fire down instead? I'm thinking my room limitations mean that I shouldn't consider up-firing rear speakers but I want the clearest Atmos effect possible.
Obviously, those types of speakers are meant to be placed at ear height to provide surround behind you and bounce sound off the ceiling with the up-firing part. I'm curious if anyone has any experience putting these kinds of speakers up high?
