Atmos planning question, 2 or 4?

(1/2) > >>

Barry (NJ):
I'm starting my quest for Atmos, and I suppose more is better, but wondering if I'll really get a lot more out of 4 in ceiling speakers than I would with just two(?)
There is really only one row of seating in My Media Room, though my kids will sometimes have a bunch of friends camped out on the floor for a movie.

Well, I went with 4. Now I need to get an AV Receiver that supports 11 channels...

Nice, I see you went with projector and screen. I am thinking of a flat screen in my room. Are flat screens really a no-no? O have ideas on how to minimize any adverse acoustical effects. Also I think an equivalent 4k set up with a projector is more expensive.

I've been running a PJ for over 15 years now. I prefer the size advantages a PJ offers, and I think the image is great. I'm at about an 11' viewing distance, with a 110" diagonal (8' x 4.5') 16:9 screen. My screen is acoustically transparent, so the speakers can be behind it. I couldn't realistically fit a panel of this size in my room, and the other factor is cost. A $750 HD PJ, and $100 in materials for a DIY Screen, is only $850 for a wonderful 110" image.
