I’m replacing my SVS Prime Elevation speakers with Arendal 1723 HEIGHT S speakers. The Prime speakers were not placed according to spec. Since they needed to be moved why not replace them with Arendal to match 1723 SURROUND S THX?
Given my room dimensions, an online program provided me with the location of the ATMOS speakers. I placed tape on the floor based on the program’s speaker recommendations. Their placement is a bit wider and closer to the MLP. It looks okay to my untrained eyes, but I prefer another voice other than the one in my head. Does this look reasonable given my room measurements and the slant of the 1723 Height S speakers?
