Using older speakers to achieve a Dolby atmos sound

Hi Guys,

I would be most grateful, if you could point me in the the right direction.

This is in regards to a Dolby Atmos speaker setup and placement.

Due to financial constraints, lol, gone are the days when this very fine,old system was bought and paid for. Needs must mean, and this is basically what I have to use. Unless it is strongly recommended to add, say 2 x height/ upward firing speakers to the mix?, as ceiling fitting is not an option.

I want to create a 5:1:2 set up, using Miller and Kreisel speakers.
The room is 5.7 m long by 4.1 wide,on this wall, is where the tv will go. The ceiling height is 2,4 m

I have 3 s 150 wall hung front speaker speakers (1 is for dialogue)
1 x sub-woofer MX-350
2 rear speakers S-85
2 tripole SS150

Where is the best position for tripole speakers etc, and what would be the height to fix the speakers at.

The amp is a Marantz 7015.

Many thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

I'd put the S85's up high on the side walls approximately in line with where your knees would be and angled downwards and set them as Top Middles.

You could use the SS150's instead but I'd keep those as Surrounds if you won't be adding Surround Backs again.
