Poll: 5.1 Rules in the World of Surround Sound
The poll spurred a conversation about the marvels of multiple subwoofers with TimmyS singing the praises of his 7.4 setup: “Nothing like having 4 awesome subwoofers placed properly with the levels, phase and crossovers set properly...Everyone must have four subwoofers!” (Tell that to my wife.) Docevil chimed in to tell how his 11.2 system is ready for 15.2 Dolby Atmos action with its dormant center and rear height channels. Now that’s surround sound.
59% 5.1/5.2 channels
30% 7.1/7.2 channels
6% No surround for me. Good old-fashioned 2-channel stereo is all I need.
3% 9.1/9.2 channels
2% 11.1/11.2 or more channels
