Only problem is he wants to do Atmos so going higher with the surrounds will do more harm than good imo.
Definitely agree about LCR though. I would try some diy as you mentioned or some jbl Pro speakers up there, and replace the rears with something from the studio line.

the JBL pro looks like some top line speakers for sound - how would they compare vs the klipsch ultra thx2?

just an update i have narrowed down the selection to the jamestown AT screen and JBL PRO speakers to upgrade the front 3 speakers.

the AT will be 16:9. i looked at the 2:35 ratio but for the size difference and problem of adjusting to source every time is not really worth the change.


would you recommned something else for this price range?

So i have been told twice by different THX certified techs not to go with JBL pro fronts

Any thoughts or experience with james loudspeakers for subs and in wall LCR?

I have no way to audition and any thoughts on the james loudspeakers would be great!

So i have all internet forums saying JTR is amazing vs integrators pushing their respective products

I think i trust the forums more...rather than sales and margins influencing the whole build

Does JTR Jeff help out with equipment choice and balancing and advice on the build.. like An integrator would?

Basically i want internet direct speakers like the praised JTR but need the help and expertise to properly setup the details

Their reasoning was probably along the lines that their cinema speakers were not intended for home audio. The integration between the drivers occurs at a pretty far distance with these types of speakers. JBL engineers themselves have been known not to recommend them for home audio applications.

Jeff won't be able to help you to the extent that a installer could. However, there isn't much to speaker placement and setup if you aren't doing any tricky integration stuff. Just follow regular placement guidelines, and read through the manual for your AVR. If you are looking to do an Atmos system, read through the Dolby Home Atmos Installation Guide.
