Dolby angle guidelines for in ceiling speakers, need to be exact or just close?
I'm building a 5.1.2 system but can expand to 5.1.4 in near future. My rear surrounds on rear wall (MLP is 3 feet from rear wall) are currently ~ 6 feet high.
I read on Dolby Atmos white paper ear height is now recommended or no more than 25% higher then front speakers. So for most of us that be 4-4.5 ft high for rear surrounds. So I assume I should drop them 1-2 ft; but my speaker wires holes are 6 ft up on wall now that the speakers are hiding; urgh
