This is my first Sonos purchase. As you can see, I must utilize the corner space for TV and sound bar since the house came with that hole:). I placed the Arc below TV and somehow feel I am not getting desired effect. Will the speaker on the side of the Arc properly bump the sound in closed space for Dolby atmos effect? or should the arc definitely place only in the center of the living room to get the Dolby Atmos effect?

Hi @rsb, welcome to the Sonos community and I appreciate you for bringing this concern. Let me help you out on this.

The Sonos Arc was designed to use a tabletop orientation by sitting on a surface, or to be wall-mounted below your TV. If you plan on using Arc in an entertainment center, we do recommend at least 5.5 inches to be clear above Arc so the up-firing speakers have enough room to create crisp, vertical channels. Arc smartly detects when it is attached to the mount and automatically adjusts the EQ to temper bass resonance from the wall. You can adjust the bass, treble, balance, or loudness of your Sonos speakers can be done in a few simple steps using the Sonos app depending on your preferred sound.

We can wait for suggestions and feedback from our Sonos community members, they might provide a suggestion about this. You may also contact our Sales specialist for more information.
