It might not be ideal, but I don't see why it wouldn't work.
Especially seeing how some people put them on top of the mains pointing up.
That's not ideal either but works.

I know for a fact its going to work with DTS-X but i wonder if it would even have then same effect as Atmos mods or even close....I wonder what tread i need to visit to get a answer.

Another question for surround in 5.2 set would you go RB-81 II or RB-75?

What mains/center do you have?
On mobile so I can't see your signature

But if you have 7/64 combo I would go RB-75 if you can find them. RB-81II'S will be good for just about anything else.

Will you eventually get rf-7s?
I would get rb-75 if you can find some.
They have a 1.75" CD which will match the 64II.
Not saying rb-81s are bad or anything.
They just matched the 75s with the original rf-7's so I think it would be a better match if that's where your heading.

Those echo 18s should be mean. Lol
But if you are going to have 7/64 I would try to get a hold of some 75s opposed to 81 IIs

RB75s are spectacular speakers and have an almost cult like following, and almost unobtainable.

Yes it would match okay. A RC62ll would match better though with the larger tweeter horn. An RC7 would be a great match also.
I like the cf-2 so much I'm considering not running a center at all..
