Dolby Atmos Installation in Small Room
I'd need some advice regarding the speaker placement.
I am finalising a small room to tracklay and premix in Dolby Atmos. The speakers are going to be calibrated via the DAD AX32 and the SPQ card.
- the surround speakers are 7x 8040As
- tThe ceiling speakers are 4x 8030As
- the subwoofers are 2x 7050Bs
*** FYI, I am not aiming to get Dolby HT Certification with this room ***
The room dimensions are:
I am now at the stage where I am placing all the acoustic treatment in the room but I am not sure about how to best mount the 7.0.0 speakers. Stands or wall mounts? As the room is fairly small, I would much better prefer wall mounts as they would take up less space.
If the speakers are wall mounted, to what extend should I be concerned if the rear port is that close to the wall. I know that Genelec advises so but would it be better if there was any bass traps/ acoustic panels right behind them? Would there be any benefit there?
Looking forward to hear back any thoughts.
