Acoustics for tomorrow’s home
theatre in a living room today

Immersive 3D sound with 15.2 channels
of Dolby Atmos, Auro 3D, DTS:X

Anutone Inspiration Series

17 speakers and 2 subwoofers in a living room for 3D sound can mean cacophony & clutter unless you have the right acoustics for coherence and clarity.



  • 7.1 surround system at listener-level with Left, Centre, Right, Left Surround, Right Surround, Left Back, Right back and subwoofer(s) on floor.
  • 7 height speakers just below the ceiling and above the 7.1 surround system to create a height sphere of audio for 3D sound envelope. Or height speakers in the ceiling as per Dolby Atmos
  • One speaker in ceiling known as voice of God for Auro 3D that creates further illusion of height audio.
  • Hence totally four levels of speakers to create a 3D dome of immersive sound – floor at 0m, listener-level 1m, height 2.4m and ceiling 2.75m.
  • This means sound waves either discrete channel based or object based is bombarding the six surfaces of your living room all the time. Floor, four walls, ceiling – six surfaces.
  • Thus the need for calibrated acoustics on each surface to take care of reverberations at the same time being unobtrusive in a living room so as not to intimidate family and guests.



  • Ceiling – A combination of Tufbloc on Strut framing with SynthPF overlay on perimeter for low frequency sound absorption and Pixel Smery on Strut framing with SynthPF overlay in the centre for mid and high frequency absorption. Finished in two levels with gypsum cornices to create sound diffusive elements.
  • Screen wall (front wall) – Strand Ebony with SynthPF backer on wall for broadband sound absorption and Soak Cord for cabinet surfaces to prevent speaker near-field reflections.
  • Rear wall facing screen (back wall) – Stretch Dekor Grafix on Strut framing with Strand Primer backer board and SynthPF infill for mid and high frequency sound absorption.
  • Side walls – very less surface area maybe available in a living room but if available then Stretch Dekor Grafix panels with family vacation pictures etc. Also heavy drapes on tall windows would help (not by Anutone).
  • Floor would have the sofa and island rugs as home décor (not by Anutone) with helps prevent annoying sound reflections and some useful sound absorption.
  • Noise isolation to prevent ingress and egress of sound – it is best to air-condition the living room with low-noise split ACs and acoustic sealant gaskets on all doors and windows (not by Anutone).
