Here is how they it looks from the seating position, Using a 15mm lens on a full frame for those who know little photography to kind of understand the scale. You can see how close to the TV they are. They sit there for music and when not in use. I pull them out for movies so i can have them at ~26°.
So when i watch a movie i pull out the measuring tape, i use the little carpet in front of the TV and i put the tape against the front of it, i draw a virtual line where the middle of the TV is and place it at 140cm [56 inches], then i put the left front speaker on the 0cm mark and the right on the 280cm[112 inches] mark, then i just rotate them a bit to point them at the listening position. I know it looks messy, cables everywhere, but i'm too far away from the TV and in order to get that sweet 26° i have to do this. So it looks like this.
Here is on what the speaker are standing, Also using the spikes they came with. Problem is that It's the Zensor 5's they are a bit smaller and they need to be risen about 10cm [4inchs] in order to get the middles between the tweeter and the first woofer at ear level. And because of that the Atmos top firing are too low as well, I also have to build stands for the left and right surrounds becuase they have the same problem.
Because i can't lift the TV up, it's a bit too high anyway, i had to put the center on top of it, so i build this.
Unfortunately i had to place to sub way to the right, and it's a bit farway, if you draw a straight line from the listening position to it, it's almost 6m [20ft] even though it doesn't look like it on the pictures
The denon x1400h under it's dust cover :P

Settings i use.
Front left speaker 3.06m (10.2ft) -6.5db
Center speaker 3.72m (12.4ft) -8.5db
Front right speaker 3.06m (10.2ft) -6.0db
Side left speaker 1.83m (6.1ft) -8.5db
Side right speaker 1.83m (6.1ft) -10.0db
Front left Atmos speaker 3.15m (10.5ft) (Ceiling distance 1.55m (5.1ft)) 0.0db
Front right Atmos speaker 3.12m (10.4ft) (Ceiling distance 1.55m(5.1ft)) -0.5db
Subwoofer gain dial 11o'clock 5.73m (19.1ft) -12.0db
AVR volume normally at -8db because the subwoofer is small for the room and quite far away even though the conver gives it a few dbs.
Front Dolby 150hz
Also made a few videos on movie scenes, i have 3-4 more videos.
Final thoughts, well it's nothing that i have ever had before, the experience is quite new and i really like, that small svs, shakes the couch quite well at frequencies 19-21 hz, it also flexes the windows on the far right of the room. Can't wait for the dayton 18 ultimax ^_^
If you have any questions, shoot!
