Dolby Surround Speakers Placement

Hey guys,

I've been reading some of the threads here and Dolby's Studio Approval Requirements for Mixing Theatrical Formats and the placement of the surrounds( height) its not mentioned. I knew that it should be at least 2 feet behind the mixing position and 2 feet above mixer's head facing the stage. But im not sure if thats the case for a 70 m square or 250 cubic meter stage. Can anybody help out?

Best,
Marco

Ear height when seated is about 3 feet. Putting the speakers at 5 feet is really low. I would suggest putting them as high as is practical in the room. 7 feet is generally too low. 9-10 feet starts to feel better. Depends on ceiling height, client seating area, etc. But, obviously, not so high the tops are brushing the ceiling.
