Check my Atmos angles >>

Just want to confirm my height locations and angles before install. I think the ideal angle is 45 and this should be pretty close? A perfect 45 I cant do because of mounting locations in the ceiling.

The picture is not to scale.

Thanks.

45 degrees elevation is easy to figure out: measure from your ears to the ceiling, that same distance forward & rearward of you is 45 degrees elevation. Placement doesn't have to be exact, just get close. Spread the height speakers roughly the same width apart as your front L/R speakers.

42.5" will be fine.

Those 4 Atmos locations are close enough to the DTS:X height locations that your placement will serve both formats.
