Try fire resistant silicone sealant if you're using regular bulbs. Any big box carries it. If you're using LED's, any silicone will work.

I'm thinking about upgrading to Atmos, but in my space it may not be worth it.

If interested, take a look at my thread and give your thoughts. I wasn't able to get much response from anyone else.

First off... What you have done with the space is absolutely amazing.

Great Job.


as for Atmos I hate to say it but I personally would probably not attempt it as the drop in your ceiling on the left hand side is going skew things and offer a less than optimal overhead listening experience.

On another note, if you or anyone else wouldn't mind taking another look at my last post in Atmos Feasability thread, I'd appreciate it. I did some inspection this weekend with pilot holes and an inspection camera and found I am able to get some speakers in front of the seats, making it much more feasible. I know it still isn't ideal, but I think this makes it good enough to be "worth it" .

Pennynike and I are going to CEDIA.

In an atmos setup you would want the ceiling speakers inline with your front speakers, so the overhead above seating in your pic is more optimal.

It's the height difference that will make it less optimal in your current situation.

You might want to look into and see if there is an option for only two ceiling speakers. One in front and and one behind the main listening position centered and inline with the center channel.

Nice, enjoy! I hope it's a great trip.

Interesting...I've never heard of that approach before. Sadly I'm almost certain there is no way I could do anything right smack in the center. due to obstructions and the projector being there.
