Check out Niles CM750FX. Great bang for the buck, but you will have to order them online or find a custom installation contractor that will sell you some. They actually have a pivoting woofer with dual tweeter pods that move with the woofer, I have used them in a few custom theater installs and they work great! Look into them.
If you are going to use In Ceilings for your fronts i would say its mandatory to have pivoting tweeters. I can't recommend anything that fits in your budget but looking at the room layout and size having an in ceiling that fires straight down would be a waste of time/money and effort.
I purchased 5 for in wall use from htd a few months ago. The quality is fine and I enjoy the sound. They offered the best price for the features I could find at that time. Also easy to install. Just watch out the usual hit on inport - they use UPS and although they ship from Texas they are made in China so you will get hit with duty and brokerage.
I'm beginning to run my speaker wire and all.
5.1 set up.
Is it ok to have my Center, FL, FR in wall encompassing a 52" Panel, and have the BL and BR in a ceiling mount above our heads?
I'm looking forward to doing some good reading here on the forums.
Not sure but I would wonder if there was a structural issue in that the speaker is no longer having to worry about gravity below it. Now they need to deal with a side force. Completely speculative on my part though. No known metrics or experience.
There may be another design consideration. In-wall speakers are usually designed acoustically for a cavity that is 4-6" deep, 14" wide, 8' tall. Ceilings would be deeper - typically 8-12", perhaps further apart, perhaps longer (or not).
Here is a funny one for you based on the box size of the wall. I wasn't really happy with the sound of my JBL ceiling speakers, mounted in the ceiling with a silent floor so I put in a u shape cover of pink insulation that left about 4" of space around the speakers. The sound quality I found to be much better with less tinny sound and more rich all around including the bass. Nit what I expected but worth the try for me.
Hi I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with these Vector Research in ceiling speakers? I purchased some for $50.00 a pair at visions (50% off)but can't find any reviews on them.They are IC80 100 watts rms. Any reviews would be appreciated.. Thanks.
