Still pondering my options for the ceiling......

I can fit the round ceiling speakers to a couple boxes if I keep the back and front pairs a max center/center distance 48". The back row would be directly overhead. If I need the front and back further apart, then I'll need to go with the in-wall M3's.

Is 48" of separation enough? I've read the Atmos guide, and it doesn't really speak to dimensions. Just angles.

Bizarre.
A rather critical element.

I'm going to try the round speakers anyway. Order placed for four of them, and four on-wall M3's.

I’m going with M3 on walls on the ceiling as top middles and M3 bookshelves as front and rear heights.

In a small space front to back this should give you max separation. It also lends itself to be configured for ATMOS, DTS and Auro 3D (if you wire for two more speakers for front center and mid center). I wired several other locations as well just in case but they are probably a bit much if your room is too small.

I'm actually thinking about front and rear heights..... I'll keep the QS8's wired up to play around with DTS and see how it goes. I ordered everything from the outlet store, so I have a few weeks to ponder this some more.
