I'm looking to move my RB41IIs to rears for 7.1 but I am super new to mounting options. I need something that can be angled down from above a bay window, but above all is secure. Does anyone have a recommendation, preferably to something I can pick up from Amazon as all the local brick & mortar options stink? The only mounts I've seen at local places are for smaller satellite speakers.

What king of angle does it need to be? I used a set of these for my Front Heights when I had them (extra sturdy but no more than a 10 degree angle)

Where as these are probably way more flexible:

Not at all ridiculous! I think there's plenty of space between all the speakers and I like the way you've got your height speakers mounted (and I really didn't think I would). IIRC you followed the Dolby white paper guidelines as closely as you could...I bet it sounds great. Congrats -- it's got me itching to get my ceiling speakers and Atmos AVR up and running!

They'll need to be near the ceiling due to the bay window, on a wall that's less than 6 feet from the LP. I think they may need to be angled down 30 degrees or more.

I'm a little leery of those ball-and-socket type mounts; we have a conference room at work with some little Klipsch satellites on that type of mount and two of them have failed into pointing the speakers straight down.

Again, I've found in many applications for PLIIx not to be as seamless or as 'organic.' This is my separate from surround speaker configuration preferences.
I can dig it....That said, who turned me in to PLIIx was "Film Mixer" who posts on here and is a Dolby engineer who mixes movies for Theatrical presentation in theaters.

It does sound great! I know I am making certain concessions in that In-ceiling compressions are likely a better choice but as you said, I followed the white paper as closely as possible.

I love it! I still need to get back up there and straighten a few things and then paint the wire covers to match the ceiling (I used I small piece of dry wall from under the mount to get paint matched) but I am really pleased.

If you hang the from the ceiling and use the L Bolt, sagging won't be an issue. I use four of these with the ceiling mounts I rigged. They have a ball and socket but they are much sturdier and built for heavier speakers:

I've bought all of my Reference II's from Sound Distributors (2x RF-7II's, 4x RS-62II's, 1x RC-64II, 2x RB-81IIs, 2x RF-82II's, 4x RS-52II's, 1x RC-62II) and couldn't have been more pleased. Quick shipping, great prices, and easy to deal with. Highly recommended. I'll be ordering my CDT-5800-CII's from them as well.

Thanks. What do you mean by ceiling mounted? Do you mean in-ceilings? Or rb-51?

Probably whatever suits your room best. Me personally in ceiling was impossible, but ceiling mounting was easy. RB51ii's can technically do both.

In fact, including the bracket it's only 11 inches deep so it won't hang down very far from your ceiling at all.
I know I'm the biggest proponent there is of making sure that all of your speakers are from the same line whenever possible but I'd make an exception in this case. To me, there's something inelegant about hanging bookshelves from the ceiling. I'm sure they'll work great, but I'd rather go with something that's specifically designed for such an application.
that is actually not a bad idea in-wall or in-ceiling is not gonna work for me as i have a thick concrete ceiling, but this is a very appropriate option.

what krozman said this ceiling u have can probably hold in-ceiling as well as the rb-xx or in-walls if the ceiling was made according to standard rulez about lowered ceilings.

I thought about those exact speakers but decided to take on the project of getting the larger RS-52IIs mounted since my ceiling is so high and I wanted the speakers to match.

Nicely done. Do you have the links to the mounting bracket/hardware that you are using to ceiling mount your RS'es?

Thanks! Yeah I used two different kinds of mounts per each speaker to distribute the weight as well as keep them on a fixed angle. I attached these to the Keyhole mount:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882733007

And then I attached these to the two threaded holes with M6 Screws and a couple washers.

http://www.wayfair.com/Cotytech-Ceil...3-PGY1168.html

The first link has them listed as each and the second link has them in pairs. I used 1 of each mount per speaker, so 8 mounts total. It is a bit much to spend on mounts but I would rather that than a speaker falling 15 feet.

Do you think that ceiling mount would work on the wall? I have had a tough time finding a decent, angling mount to wall mount my rs-52.

Ya know what DaJoJo, I was thinking about those AW-650's a lot last night and I think I'm actually going to use those instead of the in-ceilings I had originally planned.

For one, the AW-650's are dead-simple to mount. They're only 9 pounds each so you can hang them from drywall using toggle bolts with no issues. To install the in-ceilings, I was going to remove a pair of recessed lights and replace the lights (and enlarge the holes) for the in-ceilings. There's no turning back once those big holes are cut! And, I can run the speaker wire that's already in my ceiling right through the AW-650's bracket so I don't even need to install any wall plates.

Second, the AW-650's can be very easily aimed if needed.

Third, I have a soffit that hangs down about a foot right behind where my in-ceilings needed to go. I think that soffit could do some weird things to the sound, but the AW-650's will hang from the ceiling just enough to get past the soffit and render that potential sound interference issue moot.

Fourth, the AW-650's are listed as having a 90 degree x 90 degree coverage pattern which is perfect for Atmos. I don't know what the in-ceilings are rated as, but it's likely more "beamy" than the AW-650's, especially considering my soffit issue.

Fifth, the AW-650's have their own enclosures, so there no potential for rattle. Sixth, the AW-650's are available in black, so I don't have to paint anything.

And finally, the AW-650's are considerably cheaper than the in-ceilings I was planning to use!
