7.1.6 Hybrid Dolby Atmos-enabled speaker / overhead setup

How to set up your system

To create an optimal sound system enabled with Dolby Atmos®, first familiarize yourself with the role and position of each speaker. Then choose a central seating point and angle your speakers at it, keeping them at your ear height when you are seated, unless noted otherwise.

Optimize your setup

Fine-tuning your speakers

No two rooms are alike. To experience your system at its best, you might need to fine-tune your setup after some initial listening. Here are a few tips.

A clear path

Create a clear path between you and your speakers. If you can't see the speaker, sound is being blocked.

Experimentation

Don't be afraid to experiment with small adjustments and repositioning to boost sound quality.

Room acoustics

You can achieve a more balanced sound by minimizing bare walls and floors.
