Speaker placement for Dolby Atmos
English

I am building an extension and would like some advice for where to place speakers, please. 

 

It is not yet plastered so I can pretty much put them anywhere.

 

The 5.1 bit is easy. Just not sure about ceiling speakers and snot other ear level ones beyond 5.1.

 

Remember, I am future proofing so I plan to sink in any speaker wire now, ready to break the plaster when necessary.

RE: Speaker placement for Dolby Atmos

Thanks. I saw that, which is what raised my curiosity.

 

Question is, is that the optimum home theatre set up recommended by Dolby?

 

Furthermore, I have seen other set up diagrams, mainly on U.S. websites, which only have 2 overhead speakers, etc.

Optimum seems to be 7.1.4.

Thanks. Did search for 7.1.4 and found a good article:
