Remember that the THX rule is 3 identical front speakers, meaning that three 8330 is probably better than two 8341 with one 8330 center as front speakers.

Ofcorse three 8341 is even better .

Yes I am definitely using 8341 for all LCR. The question is whether or not 8320s might be enough for sides and rears, given a distance of say 1.5-2m.

Since 1234A were mentioned in this thread ... (attention @Pearljam5000 )
"Studio A has the most powerful Genelec Dolby Atmos system in the United States to date and includes a horizontal array consisting of seven soffit-mounted 1234A Smart Active Monitors™ for L-C-R and surrounds, four 8351B monitors above the mix position acting as the overhead array, and two 7382A subwoofers handling bass management as well as the LFE."

Aren't those fronts mounted a little high?

the sound characteristics were very much to my liking, with one exception. I felt everything sounded a bit thin on the bottom(maybe 200+/- hz on down.
My 2c, this seems more likely to be a matter of taste and familiarity with that system than it is to be the system’s capabilities in that frequency range.

So you’re not going to solve this with higher output speakers because they will sound the same if calibrated to a similar target response. The good thing is you can calibrate and EQ the system to taste even after it’s built.

How have things progressed on room design? I’m fairly confident the end result will depend much more highly on the room design and acoustics than your choice between 8361, 8351, 1234A, W371…. which should all sound nearly identical if not overdriven. The design of the room should perhaps dictate the speaker selection rather than the other way around.
