Question about Atmos surround speaker height.
Why does Dolby list average floor to ear height of 45" ? I looked at the seats I have ordered, which are fairly typical theater seats (Seatcraft Equinox), and they list floor to cushion = 21.5". The average bum to eye/ear height in males is 31.5" (googled anthroprometric data). So this puts your ears 53" off the floor (not 45").
Since Atmos surrounds should be equal to ear height (Trinnov actually recommends 12" above ear height), my required speaker height seems to be considerably higher than the usual recommendations.
Dunno. I've got what I'd call just a "typical" couch, and I'm an average guy (5'9", pretty average?) - and my seated ear is pretty dang close to 45" off the floor. Maybe I'm deformed.
