Dam. Did they used to be? Been searching around and have found mention of it, but there was no mention in the manual which printed the question.

Interesting ... for some reason I thought they were aimable too. Not sure why ...

I had originally planned on using the In-ceilings in my ATMOS setup till Ian told me they did not image well because the driver is buried behind the flange. So now my plan is to use on-walls or in-walls in/on the ceiling.

The tweeter is actually slightly aimable.

I'd like to see a revised M3 in-ceiling that has the driver ahead of the flange. I think that would still look better in the ceiling vs. a rectangular M3 in-wall.

Is that for real? That torquey tilting is not described anywhere. It looks like the woofer could foul with the teetering tweeter upon the tenor of a tremendous temblor. Directional cues in movies come from mid-range sounds so I don't think aiming the tweeter buys much.

For sure post back here. I was just about to pull the trigger on 4 in ceiling M3s for atmos. Heck, in their video on the M3 in-ceiling product page, they say they would be good for atmos.

I'm in the exact same boat, about to pony up and buy 4 in-celling M3's for Atmos. And also trade-up my side mounted Q10's for a pair of on-wall M5HP's.

Would like to know what are the best axiom speakers for atmos celling. I have no interest is going with a different brand. I'm a big believer in tribal matching.
