B&W MT-50s as Upward Firing Atmos?


Active Member
Hi folks,

We used to use the B&W MT-50s (old style) in the living room in a pretty standard 5.1 sub/sat configuration until we replaced them with a more robust setup from the 600 S2 series.

I've been intrigued with Atmos for some time, and our AV receiver does support this format. I've been looking for a decent Atmos speaker for some time; but then I came across this:

Someone has used the MT-50 (in an upward-firing configuration) as an Atmos speaker to compliment the 600 S2 series!

Is there any reason why this shouldn't work? Quite keen on giving it a shot. How does it work in terms of EQ and crossover, etc?

Kind regards,
