Photo above is front speaker positioning as it stands.
Rears are in the back corners of the room, up high, angled to fire downwards towards the listening position.
Compromised slightly as this is our main living room and SWMBO is not a fan of all the hi tech stuff and would gladly still watch a 14” portable.
When I bought the speaker package, it came as 7.1 as the 2 extra speakers were thrown in for free.
Ceidling mounting is a complete no go, unless I want the expense of a divorce!!
Could the 2 extra speakers be positioned on the cabinets in front of the TV and angled to the ceiling to create the Atmos effect, or does it really need specific Atmos speakers.
New venture towards the future for me, as I’ve been quite happy with 5.1 up to now So don’t really know too much about it. I’m thinking they could be placed below the front right and left, but pointed up at the ceiling to create the Atmos effect?
Would this work, or are there issues with this approach that I’m not getting?
Thanks for any help anyone can offer
