You could then use floor standing or bookshelves on stands for surrounds.
Thanks! I’ll give that a try, especially since it’s the one that requires the least amount of work.

I picked up another matching set of surrounds (GR Research A/V-1RS) a few days ago. I’ll place those on top of my subs and use them as “surrounds” and then use my already rear wall mounted speakers as ATMOS speakers and see how that sounds.

In the mean time any other suggestions are appreciated.

Here’s what I came up with so far. Used my existing wall mounted speakers as top middle speakers and then placed another matching set of speakers on top of the subs angled towards the rear wall as surrounds. So far I’m really liking the effect. Although subtle for the most part it definitely adds another layer to the mix. Here’s a pic of the layout.

So after watching a couple of flicks and countless demo scenes I got curious and decided to try something out. I keep reading that the best way to experience ATMOS is by going the overhead speaker route. I had a couple of small JBL speakers laying around so I grabbed a ladder and a drill and up they went. It made a huge difference! I’m all in on ATMOS now. lol I ordered a couple more of those little JBL’s and an amp to go with a 5.1.4 setup. I’m hoping to get everything dialed in by the end of the week.

So got the amp and 2 additional speakers setup.



Sounded it even better. Much more balanced sound coming from overhead. But the more I listened the more you could tell that the little speakers just weren’t able to keep up with the rest of the setup. I ended up ordering a set of JBL SCS-8’s. Just finished installing everything so I’ll give it a go mañana.

I'm willing to host a movie night/day.

I have the Lyngdorf MP-50 installed upstairs now. 4x Seaton F18+, 2x Funk DO12 (18.0C equivalent) & 2x Turbosound iP12b MBMs in stereo. 7.3.6

I can accommodate 12-14 people if some don't mind barstools. I also need help moving the Rythmik FV18 upstairs.
