  1. Home Audio Speakers
    I just purchased a lovely pair of Klipsch RP-160M's, and they are spectacular! These were going to be used for the front Height (Atmos) channels. But we have a pair of very good tower speakers (BIC DV84's), and is there any reason why they can't be used for the Atmos channels? We have plenty of...

    I am in the process of upgrading my home theater and looking to add 2 pairs of height speakers for a 7.1.4 atmos setup. Options that I am currently looking at are: paradigm CI Elite E80-R ($725 CDN each)...
  3. Home Audio Speakers
    Just curious and since I do not know thought I would ask. Hope this makes some sense, as much as I would like to get a new AVR w/atmos is not going to happen anytime soon. My current AVR is a Yamaha RX-A2010 this will handle a 9.2 with Front and Rear ( as Yamaha calls it Presence ) Height...

    Hello, I've not been on the forum for a long time and sort of lost track of the newest tech. I've come across this new Atmos offering where speakers are being placed in the ceiling. My question to you all is does there exist a decode format that supports the Height, Wide, and Atmos at the same...

    We are re-doing the theater after a flood. Luckily the equipment was ok, but the carpet & drywall are toast so that's getting redone this and next week. Opportunity to change since my last arrangement wasn't optimal. I want to move the two subs from the front-right corner and put them both in...
  7. Home Theater Projectors
    Hello! So I am getting a W1070 to replace my Infocus 7210 and my current basement is unfinished and the max height is 7-10" I wanted to get an Elite Screen 16:9 screen and go as big as possible based on my wall size and ceiling. I might be able to place the projector closer to the ceiling by...
  8. System Setup and Connection
    Hi all, I'm building speaker stand for my 5.1 home theater. My front speaker stand will be so the tweeter is at ear level like it is supposed to be. I was going to do the same thing for my rear speaker until I read somewhere this week-end that the rear speaker in a 5.1 system should be above...

    Greetings from Norway, this is my first post on this very knowledgeable forum! I am building a small dedicated home theater room using the original M&K S150/SS150/MX350 THX speakers, and have some questions about the vertical/horizontal placement of the front LCR speaker array. Some info...
  10. System Setup and Connection
    I have my surround back speakers on the wall and I know they are way to high. They are dipole or bipole speakers. They are half moon shape and they put defused sound out one way and direct sound out the other way. I am replacing them and all of my speakers from Boston Acoustics to Golden Ears...

    Should I mount my heights directly over the left and right mains (my front channel speakers are about 5' tall and are on a 1' platform with a 8 1/2' high ceiling)... Or would I be better off moving them to the front corners (still up next to the ceiling but about 2' closer to the walls) with...

    First of all, thanks for let me be part of this community. As you see, I'm a new user, but I check this forum almost every time I need some information. Well, as to what brings me here, I need a help on defining my 5.1 speakers position. Actually, it is a 7.1, but I barely have movies with 7.1...

  14. Home Theater Design and Construction
    Hello - I am going to build a home theater in a detached room that is limited in space. It was not built for a home theater but I'm determined it to make it one. The question I have is how high the ceiling should be to have optimal sound, of course I know the equipment will have a factor, but...

    So, they say a subwoofer would benefit from being 25% along any room boundary, including height. What I'm trying to figure out is where I should be measuring from for my SVS-PC13-ULTRA. It's a tall cylinder...so is the "sub" at the bottom where the woofer is? Or is it at the top where the...

    I have surrounds that have a 20* angle when hung properly. Does this change the recommended mounting height of 1-2ft about the LP? I'd like to get them up in the 3-4' area, but not the cost of sound

    Has anyone else had difficulty finding a stand to place their microphone, vertically oriented, at seated listener ear height, which I estimate to be 39 inches? (Of course, ear height will very depending on the listener and type of seating, but 39 inches is my best estimate for my situation.) I...
