7.1.6 advice


Active Member
I have recently purchased a Denon X8500ha and have the following speaker setup.

Front - Center - Surround - Surround Back
Front Height to the ceiling angled 45 degrees above the front speakers
4 x Down firing ceiling speakers, 2 above the sofa and 2 behind.

My original plan was to go with Front heights and Top Front and Top Rear however there doesn't appear to be an option to do that on the Denon. Should I just set the Front heights to Top front and and have the ceiling speakers as top middle and top rear or is there a better option?

I'd try Front Height, Top Middle and Top Rear.
