Cutting the ceiling is a one time deal, so I need to get this right and select a decent (not super high end) theater speaker.
I am just starting to check out ceiling speakers. my house just bought had 4 outside speakers 2 at porch and
two near pool/hot tub area. they were indoor wall speakers. the porch speakers were mounted at 45 degree angle
and pool area ones like ceiling mount (5"woofer/tweeters with crossover.)
the 5" woofers in them has caused the cone to move away from the magnet and stop working. just the weight of
the baffle I guess you would call it, works when manually moved back into magnet. these are old MTX in wall.
since you do not want to redrill out new holes. I might recommend a company that has been around a while and
will still be so you can replace them in the future (drop right in.)
as for price, do not know. but if ceiling speakers cause the woofer to slip down out of the magnet range, which one
will last the longest with the best sound for the buck$
do not want to have to replace every few years.
still lookin', just my thoughts.....
