RP Home Theater layout for 5.1.2 atmos setup


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


  I am getting a deal with the following setup:

2 RP-8000F,

1 RP-504C,

2 RP-502S and FREE PL-200II Sub (I don't know BIC company, but it goes down to 21 HZ)

For around $2100!!  I don't think a better deal would come-by even in thanksgiving, correct me if I am wrong.

+RP-502SA for $400/pair as front elevation atmos speakers.

Setting them up with Denon AVR-760 which has 75W per channel with .08 distortion and 2 channel driven.


Thinking of setting them up in a 20x15 feet (not completely rectangular room) as shown in the enclosed diagram.  Mlp is 9.5 feet from front speakers and 3.5 feet from side surrounds. Would this work for a 5.1.2 dolby atmos?  Any recommendations on the layout?

Technically where you have your 500SAs shown they'd be considered front heights.  Atmos should be overhead facing down toward you.


I chose to go with AW-650 "outdoor" speakers on the ceiling for Atmos.  They sound fantastic and were tremendously easy to install and aim with their brackets.

The 8000s and 504C are great.  Same as my LCR. 


Now. if you have a flat ceiling, definitely  try putting the 500SAs on top of the 8000s and use bounce.  See this....




Regarding this sentence.  I am guessing you meant RP-500SA as shown in your diagram.

"+RP-502SA for $400/pair as front elevation atmos speakers."
