    Im getting excessive reverberating with my Pioneer atmos add-ons. At times it sounds great, but other times the echo is repeated so many times its insane. This happens with both native Atmos content and other upscaled audio with Dolby Surround. Do I need to reduce the DB for these speakers or is this normal?

    I did calibrate with the mic that came with my Onkyo TX-NR575 btw.

    Do you have stuff on your walls to cut down on reflections?

    Shoot, I haven't even set mine up yet- but do note that they're supposed to reflect. Once, hopefully ;).

    lol yea but I was talking about your side walls not ceiling :p

    You could try putting something on your ceiling to cut down on the top reflection, you might be getting overlap.

    Ummm try a thick blanket, if the echo is diminished then your atmos is overlapping.
