  1. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    NOTE: This is my first time planning a 5.2.4 ATMOS setup, so I would appreciate everyone's critiques and suggestions before I make it a reality. Now let's get to my problem: As yall can see the back portion of my room is vaulted, and if I put my back speakers further back they will end up being...

    Hey, I am trying to update my home theater from 5.1 to 5.1.4 with an 85" TV in 16ft x 12ft x 9ft room. Please help me with the 4 ceiling speakers placement for Atmos. I read all the forums and Dolby guidelines and sketched this arrangement to the best of my understanding. Would love to hear...

    Hello all, I am hoping the collective wisdom of the Forum can help me sort this out: New construction with a "novel" ceiling build consisting of an arched, suspended ceiling (think of it as a sport type parachute) made of drywall at a height of 11' 10" at its apex, and approximately 10' 6"...
  6. DIY Speakers and Subs
    I'm building a home theater in my basement. I tore down the ceiling and built some back boxes for my Atmos ceiling speakers. I could not mount the boxes so that they'd be equidistance from each wall, but I was able to get them pretty close. In order to have my speakers equal spaced, one of the...

    Currently, I have a 7.1.2 setup with the below equipment (the primary speakers being Def Tech). I can't say I've been particularly satisfied with the A90 performance and am actively looking to moving toward proper in-ceiling speakers for my Atmos needs. I believe I'll start out adding the rear...
