Axiom also introduced a narrower version of the 160. The "problem" with that is the sphincters are in the back so if you have it positioned closer to the front wall, then you may get boundary reinforcement. If you get the 4500H, the XT32 will compensate for that no problem!

The ‘regular’ 160 will not be a problem to fit. Likely going with that.

Regarding atmos setup, had an epiphany yesterday when I realized I will probably be able to actually install in-ceiling speakers for the overheads. At least I hope. 2 (left side) will not be problem to get wired in.

Right side will pose more of a problem. Have a guy coming by Thursday to see if it is possible without ripping my basement ceiling apart.

Have you considered on-ceilings? You may also be able to run the wires under your carpet and up a support pillar.

You mean a like a bookshelf mounted on the ceiling or is there such a beast as an in-ceiling like speaker that mounts on the ceiling? I tried looking for such a thing a few days ago without any luck.

Either way, the problem side has no support posts.

And carpet. Oh boy. We are redoing the flooring in the entire house to a vinyl plank. Wasn’t thinking clearly and I did not veto the planking in the theater room.

I have a feeling that telling my wife that we need carpet in there is not going to be the best conversation we’ve ever had.

Wonder if I could get away with some throw rugs.

Axiom makes "On wall" speakers, if that is what you mean - https://www.axiomaudio.com/in-wall-on-wall-speakers

Fancy On wall M80, or mounted to your ceiling? LOL

Phuk no, dude. You do NOT want wood or vinyl in there. You will hate yourself and want to beat your face in with your future 160. You may also end up punting your missus. If you put anything but carpet in there, you'll want to torch your house!

Carpet is the best acoustically and thermally. I just went through this with a lady friend of mine who just can't thank me enough for steering her away from wood to carpet. You can bring your missus over to my place and let her scrunch the luxury of the finest Berber and under-lay betwixt her toes and marvel at the audio bliss I enjoy all thanks to my carpet, v4 and XT32.

As for on-ceilings, like BBIBH said, just use on-walls.

Point taken. Though I will counter you and say phukt carpet in the rest of the house. All the crap that accumulates in carpet is disgusting.

I don’t see how I’d mount the on-walls on the ceiling. They only have the ‘hanging’ mount, which would not work on a ceiling. Nor do they work with the full metal ceiling or wall mounts. I guess you could try rig something, but they would look strange up there.

I’m confident my guy will be able to wire the ‘difficult’ row. Time will tell.

Axiom also has a full metal roof bracket.
Might be a good option for aiming the overheads directly at your MLP.
I use a set of the regular FMB for my front heights. Great quality brackets actually made for Axioms.

And, how the heck does one scrunch Berber between one’s toes?

I have the ceiling ones for my qs8s and the regular ones for my outdoor m3s. Neither will work with the on walls. The on walls do not have the screw/bolt hole in the back of speaker. The ceiling ones also do not work with a bookshelf other than a m2 or m22 (mounted in a horizontal position).
