    5.1.2 Speaker Height Placement

    I am installing a 5.1.2 Atmos system in my home theater. The builder installed speaker wire outlets at a height of 6' on the wall for the front speakers, and at the 8.5' ceiling height for the surrounds (middle and rear). I am installing in-ceiling speakers for the Atmos set using the middle...

    What do you recommend for 5.1.2?

    To keep things simple, I'm looking for an AVR and speakers for my new man cave. Its roughly 16' deep and 30' wide facing the TV. I want to run a 5.1.2 configuration with as many in-wall speakers possible. Since the attic is above the room, I can easily run wires and mount ceiling speakers. I...
