      Answer

      An ATMOS Receiver has another set of speaker connections, on my Yamaha RX V681 receiver, they are labeled "Presence". I placed a set of Onkyo SKH-410's (sold at BB) on my front speakers, and the difference is very noticeable. In my case, the speakers fire up at the ceiling, but ceiling, side or side/rear configurations can also be utilized.

    Will these speakers work with Onkyo DX-C390 compact disc changer?   (2 Answers)

      These speakers will only work with an audio-video receiver that has connections for atmos speakers. You don't want to connect them to any other device because they aren't designed to produce full audio range of sounds or frequencies.

      I have an angled vaulted ceiling and they work fantastic! I needed to adjust and tweak them for a while but they make a really noticable and great difference!

    Can these speakers work effectively if placed next to the front speakers on two cabinents. The current front speakers are placed about 8 feet apart. I realize an atmos receiver must be used.

      Put them at or above ear height when seated and on top of the left and right front speakers if possible.

        As long as your receiver is Dolby Atmos ready, and you can have 7.1 (or more) speaker connections, then yes you can.

      Can this speaker be wall mounted? How?   (5 Answers)

      I want to wall mount these speakers but I don't know the best way to do this since the speaker bounces sound off the ceiling. Does anybody have recommendations?

        While I placed these speakers on top of my front speakers and they work fine, they do come with wall mount brackets.

      Can these speakers be used with a turntable that has an amp?   (3 Answers)

        While these speakers are rated at 90Hz - 20kHz, due to their small size and intended purpose (ATMOS Presence speakers), I'm not sure the sound will be as full as you might like. Also, they point up at the ceiling, not toward you. I'm sure you can find better speakers, in the same price range to will more closely fit your purpose.
