Acoustimass® 10 Series V with Atmos ?

Can Acoustimass 10 be modified for Atmos speakers ?   My avr can handle it (Yamaha RX-V581) so all that is needed are two compatible height speakers, in ceiling if possible.   Will this work and which speakers would match nicely ?

While Bose doesn't make Atmos ceiling speakers, you can certainly use our Acoustimass system in conjuction with third-party ceiling speakers along with this receiver to complete an Atmos setup.

Yes . By adding a Acoutimass 3 or 5 you can connect that to the height channels

Logically that will function.  However, is there an issue with the original sound in the codec, meant for all channels, be distorted because the Accoustimas Module will decipher sound for the 5 channels leaving the Atmos effect to be only constrained to the two ceiling speakers? This distorts the overall impact of the Atmos sound being distributed to all channels, correct?  Can anyone address???

Hello mrnelson,

In this set-up the additional pair of speakers will connect directly to the receiver, not through the Acoustimass module so you shouldn't have an issue.

Hi I was hoping to do the same thing. I have the Accoustimass 10 series IV and want to add two in-ceiling speakers that will connect directly to my Atmos capatible reciever. Did it work for you?

 

Thanks!

Could I use a pair of Bose Cube speakers and connect them directly to the AV Receiver?  

 

I have in mind a pair of Bose Cube Speakers in order to much the design.
