So, the recent talk of ceiling speakers and where they should be positioned (with respect to side walls) has got me thinking/agonizing a bit about how I recently mounted mine.
I *could* move them from where they're mounted currently, but it would involve more drilling into the ceiling, etc...ugh.
My room is 12' wide. Currently I have my front L&R speakers pretty much in the corners since my screen is so large and nearly fills up that 12' width. I followed Dolby's PDF advice and mounted my ceiling speakers pretty much in-line with the front L&R speakers, such that the ceiling speakers are only about 14" away from the wall. I do have reflections in this room (irrespective of Atmos), so at some point I do plan to treat the walls with something to reduce those reflections.
So, yeah, my ceiling speakers are fairly far apart (a little over 8' apart from each other). Things sound good, I've run Audyssey, so I don't know if that will help compensate, but the recent posts have got me thinking. Do I leave well enough alone? Or do I embark on moving the speakers in more so they're in a "tighter rectangle" above the MLP?
