Width/Height Speakers


Well-Known Member
Been a little while since receivers started coming with these extra amp channels. Anyone had an opportunity to hear what they sound like?


I'm famous now bitches! vvvvv
I've been curious, but at the same time I don't think I would even go that route. That's just too many speakers to put in a room, especially mine.

IMO, I think you would have to have pretty tall ceilings (like a 12 footer) to get any benefit from height surrounds, sort of like having more depth in a room for getting better performance from the back surrounds in a 7.1 setup.

It seems like a sales gimmick to me, at least until theres some recordings supporting it. A properly set up 5.1 gives the impression of height and width anyway.
