RP500SA Crossover Question

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I just upgraded my set up to the new reference premiere series and had a quick question on the RP500SA’s that I just purchased. I am running 4 of them in a 5.1.4 setup. My set up has these speakers running as Dolby atmos heights (elevation) instead of the upward firing, or in ceiling type. My question has to do with the crossover switch. Since these are running as Atmos elevation speakers instead of upward firing do they need to be set up the Atmos phase, or the surround phase?

if using as downfiring elevation I'd use the surround setting.  Upfiring Atmos speakers have a proprietary response curve that aids in the psychoacoustic effect, certain frequencies are more localize-able than others so Dolby made a response curve that manufacturers have to adhere by to pull it off, that's what the atmos setting is for.
