I'm preparing for the next Profiler version...

If you had to choose between a pair of Front Height or Top Front speakers:

Installation efforts aside, which would you take?

There are no multidimensional overhead speakers in this setup.

Top front, front height seem to have their sound mixed up with the other speakers. I think a top front placement would be better. Note: I have an atmos setup with front heights.

Most people however seem to think top rears and top middle are best. Skip the top/height fronts all together.

Does it make a difference if you configure a speaker in "Front Height" position just below the ceiling as "Top Front"?
