Brand new home in design phase needs in ceiling surrounds to match new M80 fronts.

RSL/PSB/Paradigm? Which model? What makes a good match?

My first post regarding in cabinet questions is attached - shows layouts, etc...

Thanks for any suggestions regarding all aspects of the project.

Not a big fan of "inceiling" speakers for surround duty, part of the reason Axiom doesn't make them. You would be better off running speaker wire to plates in the correct locations depending on if your doing 5.1 or 7.1, and ceiling/wall mount Qs8's.

Would love to use QS's, but the wife factor is huge on this detail. We have some bad history on our current HT setup in the living room. We joke about staying in this new house until we are dead...can't afford to listen to grief for 20 years or split my 401k over this issue. She has seen painted-to-match rounds in a ceiling and buys into that...now I have to hide everything else...the plan is coming together...thx.

I'd definitively get some good ones then. I plan on using in-ceiling for the rear 2 in a 7.1 someday. I just don't know who makes the best sounding ones yet.

To bad digs, you want the bullits going through you from left/right and back/front not coming straight down. Can't help you on inceiling speakers, sorry.

No offense but I have yet to hear an in ceiling speaker that didn't make me feel like I was at Wallmart.

It might make some people feel right at home.

But seriously, with all of the other speakers firing in the proper directions, it would probably go unnoticed. (except possible when you have all surrounds in ceiling).

You guys are killing me...maybe I could hang a lampshade over them...or tie a string to her chin so she can't look up.

Look at the drawing in the other post...do you think they could sit inside the inner portion of the tray ceiling? Those walls are 10' apart.

Oooo. Oooo. I have an idea. You could mount the TV in the ceiling too, then just watch tv while lying on the floor, then the in-ceiling speakers would sound just right.
