Just saw your latest post, pro logic is 4 channels derived from a stereo pair by a combination of matrixing and filtering, the surround chain has a very limited frequency response (~400 - 7K IIRC) and relative phase and amplitude is used to steer the audio to the appropriate speakers.

Mono stems is the way to play, real (as opposed to panpot stereo will just confuse the decoder, as will any use of 'stereo enhancement' tools.

The normal layout is LCR + Sub behind the screen (which will be perforated) with a chain of small surround speakers around the auditorium.

Note that cinema audio will normally have pretty good bass response and this may well be better then your own monitoring chain, especially if your room treatment leaves a bit to be desired, you have been warned!

Regards, Dan.
