Sounds like you are weighing in-ceiling vs. mounting a bookshelf speaker to the ceiling? Obviously pros and cons to both. As mentioned, the C763L is being used for ATMOS mastering, so clearly the pros find it a good solution. The only caveat is that you need to cross them over at 80 hz or higher for best performance. I cross mine over at 110 hz to give them plenty of headroom. You've got those huge SVS subs to handle the bass so I think you would be wise to do the same thing
The C763L is best implemented with the mid-tweeter assembly rotated so that it is generally aimed at the main listening position.
Hope that helps!
Thank for your post, and the nice compliment about my Theater
Yes, your post and the previous one with the video, did help.
As mention before by you. The C763L, are use a lot by studio for mastering a movie into Atmos.
This tell me that they are good, and should be, after all they under the badge name of Revel, very reputable.
What I really learn is Revel, Do angle the speakers to aim at the listener with the C763L (a nice beast for a ceiling speaker and also have it's own enclosure).
I can achieve the same with my bookshelf for a little bit of angle, and pointing to my MLP.
And also, do not mind the look of speaker with no grills and a nice finishing to boot
I got into this thread, by mentioning that I was on the same boat for speaker no longer available for the OP.
For me, I will stick with 4 more bookshelf, with mount for ceiling duty for Atmos.
So there was no decision on my part about in-ceiling speakers.
Easier to install than in-ceiling, and also keep the same sound signature.
The one's I got
And these are going to be the one's I get for Atmos
Vey close for sound signature
Not really required other than the front 3, but since, I went to the trouble of matching all 7 speakers, why not keep going for the extra 4 speaker for the ceiling
As you said, I have plenty of bass from my sub's, all my speakers are set at 80Hz (Tower included).
