Re: Dolby Atmos 7.2.4 in an 11x14 dedicated HT

Since so many of you were kind enough to take your time and weigh in, and I have ALMOST completed the theater, I wanted to post an update. The theater is built, wired, and we have now watched a few movies in it. I have not completed the sound deadening or all of the digital tweaking, but the preliminary results are rather surprising.

I decided to stick with the 7.2.4 configuration. Contrary to popular opinions, the bass is awesome in both rows of seats. By "awesome", I mean a truly sick level of bass, to the point where I actually think I might like it better with just one sub on. The dialogue is crisp and present. Surround actually works pretty well. The only audio deficiency (aside of excessive audio reflection from lack of sound absorption) is with the ATMOS presence speakers. I am trying to see if I can get away with not mounting them on the ceiling because I don't want to run wires through the attic (or have wires show). They still work, but the sound is a bit too localized. I will experiment with angles, volume and delay, but I predict that I will ultimately have to move the presence speakers to the ceiling.

As soon as I finish the room, I will start a new thread with photos of the full build.

I wonder how the presence would sound by moving the speakers to the corners like this?? I would think above your head would be preferred but not having actual experience I can not say. Looking forward to the build thread.
