Based on my own room, I think you'd appreciate "some" overhead sound coming from behind you, even if it's not far. I'd probably go with the rear heights in your room. Otherwise, the helicopter (for example) will only travel to right overhead and not behind you. I see a shelf of some kind, but it doesn't look like it'd interfere with the same style speakers in the back. Your room doesn't look too big to do heights on both ends, IMO.I’m well versed with Atmos speaker placement but thought I would get some recommendations. I currently have a 7.2.2 configuration with front heights shown in my pic. I installed 2 Emotiva amps so now I’m looking at adding another pair of heights but I’m not sure where I should place them. I’m really leaning towards a top rear placement instead of rear heights. I was planning placing them right above my sofa in the pick so they are firing down on us - about 15 inches from the back wall. Or would they be better to place them 30 inches?
All feedback is appreciated.
