Did you install them in a stud on the ceiling or use these?

No need for a transformer. That's an option for large distribution systems. I ordered mine without the transformers.

Maybe they cost less because they are not weatherproof, or maybe they sell more cause they look nice. Compare the detailed spec sheets to see the performance differences. The drivers are not 100% identical in size, for example. The response and SPL limits are a little different IIRC.

I used EZ anchors. I added a thin layer of rubber between the U-bracket and the ceiling to ensure it does not buzz with vibration.

Good I just wanted to make sure that they won't fall off if I do that as well. If I can only put one pair of ATMOS on ceiling should it be in front or in the back Any suggestion?

I would say to follow the Dolby guidelines for top-middle.

Top middle so that's in the middle of the ceiling!

Hum do you think four ATMOS in a 13 x 11 x 9 is too much I have 7 at ear level?

I found these that should work well with the seven LS50! KEF E301



They have the same type of drivers as the LS50
