Home Theatre System Configurations

5.1, 7.1 and 7.2 are still popular configurations and a very good place to start. However If you want to add more channels for Dolby Atmos or DTS:X you can at any time.

Dolby Atmos systems are made by adding 2 or 4 ceiling speakers (from our Kestrel or Accento range for example) to a 5.1, 7.1, 7.2 etc,.
Simply organise a local HT installer or electrician to install the in ceiling speakers or install them yourself according to the information on spacing and and angles in the Dolby Atmos Speaker Setup Guide.

DTS:X For DTS:X systems 5.1, 7.1, 7.2, Dolby Atmos or Auro 3d layouts are still a good place to start but you have greater flexibility in speaker placement and number of speakers which you can customise for your room because DTS: X does not rely on predefined channels sent to set speaker placements but mixes the positions of sounds in the receiver based on where your speakers are positioned.

Auro 3d systems are made by adding the suitable number of speakers from either the Firesprite (bookshelf sized) or Fusion (flat panel range) for high wall mounting with brackets to create a high layer, then adding a single ceiling speaker for the VOG channel.

With a compatible receiver (such as models from Marantz or Denon which we can supply) you can upgrade any 5.1, 7.1, 7.2 etc. system to Dolby Atmos, Auro 3d or DTS:X either now or at any time in the future simply by adding the additional speakers.

Simply phone or email to discuss any configuration you have in mind or just to discuss which system would suit your room or requirements best.

Home theatre system placement information

Surround speakers for most systems can be mounted anywhere from about sitting ear level to above standing head height depending on your room / requirements (using speakers from the Firesprite (bookshelf) or Fusion (flat panel range). Or stand mounted, or small floorstanders could be used such as from the Sentinel range.

Subwoofer placement is very flexible, but towards the middle of the front is better when only one sub is used.

Bookshelf or flat panel speakers can also be used as fronts either stand or wall mounted.

Mix and Match your Own Home Theatre Speaker System

You are quite welcome to mix and match our various speakers to suit your own needs if you know what you want. Or you could choose from a few of our suggested system combinations here as a general guide. Many different systems are possible. Just add the speakers from the series that you want, to create the exact configuration you want.

All our speakers have a similar tonal balance because there is uniformity in design, and they combine well in any combination. However, it is easy to use exactly the same tweeter and midrange drivers throughout your choice of models for a home theatre system, if you ask.

Build your own box Kit

Prices are even less for a system in kit form. This is useful if you have woodworking abilities and are able to make your own cabinets. The kit will come with fully built crossovers, drivers, cabinet dimensions and instructions, grill clips/cloth, vents, screws, etc., and free advice over the telephone if you have any queries or difficulties.

Home Theatre Receivers

If you also require a home theatre Receiver we can supply a range of home theatre receivers from the Marantz or Denon ranges along with any speaker package or combination.

Compatibility with all brands and models of home theatre receivers and amplifiers

Because the majority of Ascension speakers are 8 ohms they can be used with any brand or model of home theatre receiver or stereo amplifier without problems with compatibility. Some other brands have low impedance speakers of 4 ohms which are not compatible with many home theatre receivers.
