Obstructions to Audio from Atmos Ceiling Speakers?
Hello! I searched through the forum and couldn't find any topics directly about this, so sorry if this has been asked before. We are moving into a new place and have a pretty decent A/V room planned with one small hitch. We're going to start with a 5.1.4 setup. The only problem is that there is a structural beam that extends down from the ceiling about 16" or so and I had originally planned to put the rear ceiling speakers on the opposite side of this beam in relation to the MLP. Now I'm getting concerned that the beam will obstruct the sound from those speakers too much. I attached an image of the room in the model for reference.
So -- would this beam interfere too much with the audio from those speakers? We can move the couch forward and put the rear ceiling speakers directly in front of that beam. The dimensions of the room are roughly 20' wide and 16' deep, with the beam about 3.5-3.75' from the back wall.
Thanks for any suggestions!
