I have a question about the In Ceiling Silver/6 Sats. The speaker baffle is angled at 35 degrees; therefore the speaker actually directs sound at 55 degrees, since the speaker directs in the opposite direction of the 0 plane, it actually projects at 55 degrees (90-35). Based on the location the sats were installed before, I could put them back where they were as front heights, instead of patching the holes in the ceilng. The main problem I see with this is that they will be pretty wide. What are your thoughts or opinions about this? More than anything, I'd like to reinstall the speakers there for any purpose, just so i don't have to patch the holes.

I would use those ceiling spaces for TOP FRONTS. Your speakers are at a 35 degree angle for the listener, according to your diagram. So those should be labelled TOP FRONT. Not Front Height.

(I'm not talking about the baffle, which matters for tonality, but about the position of the driver relative to the listener, which determines LOCATION.)

The width is not ideal, but imo, acceptable, given the dispersion of the speakers.

I have the same ceiling speakers. I don't remember where I found the actual Triad calculator, but here's a copy of my calculations. But, you have C as 55*, I have C as 35* (which is the default entry). One of us is confused.

A few questions:

Total Room Size? (WHD)
How close is the seating to the side and back walls?
Do you have any other speakers in the ceiling?
What is the budget for your Atmos speakers?
Its an odd L shaped room with my screen on the head of the L.
14.5'W, 24'D 8.5'H
Seating position at 9ft back from screen, 3 seats centered in room,
I know ideally for a 7.1 you would have the tripoles on the sides, and back, but im thinking my back speakers would be too far back now in this new space, plus the is no wall on the back side as its open to the rest of the room.

I dont have any ceiling speakers yet, so thats my decision factor with how to best put back and Atmos speakers. Should i go inceiling or an angled wedge style atmos height channel on side and back walls high up to the ceiling?

C is the baffle angle, but rpm900 is talking about the mounting position versus the listener's head, which is the unlabelled brown angle here. Which determines which position the decoder should be set for.

What is the decoder? Thanks.

Assuming your seats are more than 3 feet away from the back wall you could go with IC Bronze/8 LCRs for Atmos.
Yes i am about at im at 10ft front front of room, 14ft from back.

I’m going to be outfitting my room with the Silver LCR in-walls behind an AT screen.

I came across this amp at a great deal and was wondering if it would be a good fit for powering 3 of the silver LCR’s and maybe even 2 additional surround channels?

I don’t listen at reference.


Thanks!
