5.1.2-Channel Speaker Package
The two-way front speakers house paper-cone woofers and balanced-dome tweeters to deliver clear, wide-spectrum sound. They also incorporate an up-firing driver in a compartment in the top of the cabinet, which bounces overhead sound effects contained in Dolby Atmos and DTS:X soundtracks off the ceiling and into the audience. This speaker package also includes two wall-mountable surround sound speakers, a dual-drive 2-way center speaker, and a 10-inch 120" down-firing subwoofer.
This format combines a channel-based audio bed with object-oriented sound to place and move specific effects around the room in an effort to create a realistic and captivating sonic atmosphere. Sound designers and artists are free to mix in a 3D space, steering effects through surround channels and adding a seamless overhead dimension with discrete height channels.
