  1. @mitchibo - I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one with these results. I'm not against cutting holes in my ceiling as my theater is dedicated, but since you mentioned it, I may try hanging them behind my acoustically transparent screen about 1/4 from the top near the outer edges. Dolby may have specifications, but nothing says you have to follow them. :-)
  2. Thanks for all the feedback. @wvu80 I think my expectations may have been set too high, but I'm not giving up just yet. I haven't tried any room correction, but that is something to try. @dtr20 I would love to add another pair of height speaker but my RP-250s and are wall mounted. I don't have any place to put another pair unless I decide to go into the ceiling which might be an option later. @derrickdj1 My front row of seats is about 8 feet from the screen. I have all the angles of the speaks set according to the Dolby specification or at least as close as I could get. I think I need to watch a complete movie with it before I decide instead of just watching the demo clips. I found "Gravity" on the list of Dolby Atmos enabled Blurays but when I play that disk there's no option to setup audio from the main bluray menu. Is it possible my copy just doesn't have the Atmos audio track? Or is the Atmos track built into the regular Dolby track? If I buy a Bluray that I know is supposed to be an Atmos enabled title will it have "Dolby Atmos" anywhere on the front or back of the jacket? I apologize if these are silly questions, I just am not sure. Thanks.
  3. I just added two height speakers (RP-140sa) on top of my RP-280's (5.1.2). I'm using a Denon x4200w receiver and pretty sure I have it configured correctly. My ceiling is about 8 foot and it's completely flat drywall. The 4 walls and floor are all acoustically treated. When I watch a Dolby Atmos sample file I have to say I'm a bit underwhelmed. I definitely don't get any sound coming from above like I expected, it just sounds like sound coming from the top of the front speakers. I was expecting sound to appear from above but I'm not getting that at all. Before I decide to use the new height speakers as rear surrounds (7.1) I thought I'd ask here as I may be missing something simple. Thanks!
  4. Yes, my second and third row is on a 12" riser. The two center speakers are about 3 feet apart. If you're sitting in the middle row and there are people sitting in the front row you can't see the center speaker below the screen. I've always heard that you should be able to see the speaker or else it won't sound as good.
  5. All technical talk aside, I have a RP-450 on a stand under the screen and a RP-250 behind the acoustically transparent screen about half way up. The smaller center makes it easier to hear dialog on the back row since the 450 is pointed right at the front row. Nobody even knows there are two centers unless I show them the one behind the screen. I'm glad I decided to try it and have stuck with it. It's worked great for me. I have them run in series.
  6. Awesome! Thank you dtr20.
  7. No, I couldn't find pics of the back of the speakers anywhere. I wish there were some.
  8. Are there any mounting options on the back of the RP-140s if one wanted to use them as rear surrounds? I'm considering upgrading from 5.1 to 7.1. Thanks.
  9. I'm not going to bust mine open to take pics, but I will tell you the RP-280f and RP-115sw sound absolutely fantatic. I was thinking of buttkickers for my theater chairs until I got this sub, you can literally feel it. Just get them and enjoy the sound. Well worth the investment.
  10. Shaun isn't actually my nephew, he's my best friend (pretty much a brother to me). Oops, sorry. I must have misread that somewhere. Looking forward to seeing it complete.
  11. What a great choice! The cherry finish will really show off the craftsmanship. Oh man, I'm excited and it's not even mine :-)
  12. Wow! When I was in my teens I wanted to be a cabinet maker so I can appreciate the skill your nephew has. That's some impressive work and will be incredible once you get it all finished. Can't wait to see it all come together. What color stain is he going use?
  13. FuzzyDog, the two center are wired in series to reduce load on my receiver. I watched The Force Awakens last night and the dialog is crystal clear. The center behind the screen widens the dialog and makes it easier for the back row to hear. I read all the negatives and decided to try it. If it didn't work out I could just disconnect it. So far it sounds like it's going to work out.
  14. Thanks! Amazingly, today will be the fourth day I've had off with no social commitments or work. This is rare, but I am enjoying it... and the room :-)
  15. Mike M, I bought the seats from Roman on AVSforum. I bought 6 Escapes from the Fusion collection. The chairs come in bonded or top grain leather, these are top grain. They have electric recline, electric head rests and each cup holder has a drink holder with an aluminum cooler plate. If you use a can or stainless cup it actually does an okay job, but is a bit "gimmicky". All the controls light up and are touch sensitive but can be locked with the press of a button to keep from unintentionally triggering them when grabbing your drink. http://www.rtheaters.com/FusionCollection/FC-Escape-1019.html I really can't say enough about Roman and the customer service he provided. I had two small problems that he immediately fixed when I emailed him. He always responded quickly and never left me hanging or worried. I can recommend doing business with him without hesitation.
