Man I love the CB3 HD more and more each day, incredible flexibility!
I'm rockin the 5 sub option and all I can say is holy guacamole! The low frequency info in the center and surround channels is mind blowing I didn't realize those channels carried so much low jolt!! Watching jurassic Park on Blu-ray, which is one of my all time favorites was an amazing experience... Best experience with this movie I've had since it's release! The visceral impact is addicting! Theta you rock baby!

If you really want to test your center and surrounds and subwoofers for low frequency content try watching Interstellar on Blu-ray! I am so glad that I have full range surrounds and a center.

Yes Interstellar made me jump out of my seat. It was the first movie I watched after going dual subs. And it shocked me.

I watched interstellar when it hit Blu-ray, didn't like it much, not sure I could sit through it again. I do agree on the bass though!

With this movie I blinked and changed the setting of my main tower speakers from running full-range to crossing over @ 40 hz.

I almost wanted to check the floor for ejected woofers everytime there had been a black hole involved. Wonder if Einstein knew those darn black holes have so much low frequency energy.

If I can suggest the success we have had with KEF for in ceilings.

We have used the CI200RR with amazing results. We believe a lot of this is because unlike other speakers this uses their UniQ technology which is a concentric driver config. The tweeter lives in the center of the Mid/Bass driver. Great time alignment, dispersion and incredible sound. Same Tech on their Blade and reference stuff..

Once again this forum and particularly Craig/VGI are gonna cost me more money!

I am seriously considering getting four of the KEF CI200RR-THX for in ceiling Dolby Atmos/DTS-X speakers!

Questions for Craig/VGI & for others to chime in:

I have five Aerial 7ts, all floorstanding.Five Theta Prometheus monoblocks. Room dimensions 18' wide, 25' 3" long, 11' 11" high.

1. In conjuction with four KEF CI200RR-THXs, where should the KEFs be mounted on my 11' 11" high flat ceiling?

2. My web search shows some folks mention installing the KEFs into back boxes? Opinions on this for my install?

3. Multi-channel amp to drive KEFs? Thoughts on Theta Dreadnaught D vs the new ATI multi-channel amps?

4. Recommended in wall speaker cabling for this?


Thanks a lot particularly Craig/VGI. By the time I get done, I'll be buying 4 KEF CI200RR-THX in ceiling speakers, a four channel-multi-channel amplifier Theta or ATI, an Xtreme D3 DAC card for my Theta CBIV & upgrade to CBIVa, and of course custom install!@@

Steve the only thing I can help with is the Dreadnaught D. It really is a fantastic amp. And since you already have the Prometheus amps, if it were me I would choose the D.

On the inwall cable. I have Kimber Kwik 12 and would fully recommend it. I did a lot of research on inwall cable. It seemed to be the best all around. And it is so easy to install. Even if it is thicker than some.
