Does the Stealth 8's design intention as a nearfield studio monitor make it any less suited to being the LCR speaker in a baffle wall behind an AT screen? I am wondering if the dispersion characteristics make it less suitable for a calibrated theater... Not only for overall theater calibration, but also taking into account vertical dispersion (particularly of the tweeter) if I were to have multiple rows.
Emotiva XMC-1, Emotiva UPA-2, UPA-200, Nvidia Shield, Emotiva Stealth 8 x3 for LCR, Airmotiv6s for RS, LS, RBS, LBS, Goldenear Invisa HTR7000 x4 for Atmos (installed but never turned on... Cmon XMC-1 Atmos update!)
I don't have Stealth 8's but I do have Airmotive 4's and I have set up a couple of HT's with Airmotive 6's and at over 3 metres listening distance the air motion tweeters have no problem with vertical dispersion. At 1 metre the vertical dispersion is limited, but as distance from the source increaes it becomes far less noticeable. Just to confirm you could easily do the geometry, all you need is the distance from the source and the vertical height of each row, then overlay that with the dispersion angle, a simple triangle. How's your Pythagoras?
