Need some noobie help, as I'm confused after all my research. I've got a small room I'm working on a 5.1.2 setup in and I'm uncertain as to the placement of the .2 ATMOS speakers in regards to the type I'm using. Here's my setup:
- Basic square room, so assume the TV is on the north wall.
- Side walls are 10' 10"
- N/S walls are 11' 11"
- MLP is approximately 6' - 6 1/2' when reclined from the north wall.
- Front speakers: I've got my L/R floor standing speakers approximately 3 feet from the side walls. The C is in the middle below the TV.
- Rear surrounds are in the rear corners of the room. - Question, should I point these in toward the MLP or leave them facing directly forward?
--- So reading some threads, I understand that the optimum position for my atmos speakers would at a 30 degree angle from my MLP (which are 2 independent recliners, right next to each other). I understand that I measured the distance from my ceiling to my ears which is 60". Assuming my middle line is 5'6" (66") I place the ATMOS speakers 60" toward the north wall from the center line. That puts me pretty much in line with my front L/R speakers.
Now my question is, I'm using these Boston Acoustic on wall 4.5" ATMOS speakers
. I've read multiple things that have confused me in regards to their placement, because they are on-wall and not in ceiling speakers. Can anyone help me out? My initial understanding is to place them as high as I can on the wall, near the ceiling, point them toward the MLP and due to the size of my room they'd be right at about in line with my L/R speakers. Or, do I mount them just a few feet above the L/R speakers and at the same distance from the middle line?
Confused on this. Lastly I guess, just for kicks, I've read some stuff that indicated based on the fact that I'm only doing a 5.1.2, that the .2 won't be as noticeable, especially with the size of my room, and that people in my position would be better suited going with a standard 7.1.
Again, these are just my thoughts based on my research and I could really use some help getting it figured out. Thanks!
