I'm interested in the Klipsch Premiere series
But I've noticed that the center speakers do not have biwire connections, only singlewire
The floorstanders have biwire, so why not the centers?
Would that not mean that the sound from the center would be a bit worse compared to the floorstanders?

All of those speakers only need a single set of wires going to them. On the towers make sure the jumpers between +/+ and -/- are in place and you should be good to go.

Does anyone know the dispersion pattern for the CDT-5800-C-II ceiling speakers? I can't find that information in the documentation. I'm considering them for Atmos. Thanks in advance!

Tweeter is 100 degrees, woofer is probably fine given how woofers radiate in general, though it crosses at 2230 Hz which is a little high, so it might start beaming near crossover, I'm not sure

Anyone else looking to do Atmos with Klipsch? If so, what do you plan to use?

Sorry for my horrendously worded question...
Yes, I did mean the LaScalla II's, and it was the centre I was wondering about.
I'm measuring up now, but a LaScalla II as a centre will most likely block the projector screen.
Oh well, let's see what else I can come up with.

Cornwall III or Heresy III would be my next choices, in that order, for Centre...

I'm thinking I'm going to try bookshelves I can get very cheap, maybe R15Ms, and try them as upfiring modules (though I don't know how well that works with toe in) with something under the back to give them an appropriate angle. Sancho's idea of ceiling mounted speakers sounds pretty good too (I can't do any in ceiling in my rental), and I may try that as well.

Currently I run only 2.0 with R28Fs. I'm considering getting a center, possibly a KPT 8060H, which I would mount right above my tv, but I have to measure and make sure it will fit above a prospective tv upgrade and actually sit in the center (the stairway is behind the tv so it's an angled wall). If money weren't an issue i would go for an RC64II and set the tv on top, but that's not in the cards right now. In any case I'm very happy with phantom center with my recent toe in improvements. I would like to add surrounds but there are a couple issues holding me back at the moment (chairs in the back corners of the room and localization/dominance, roommates opinions on wires running across the walls or ceilings), and subs are a future purchase but my towers get low enough for me currently (and the cost of low hitting subs is somewhat prohibitive vs the gain I predict, much like an RC64II with my current phantom image).

Sorry for telling my life story haha.

I'm going to mount four RS-42II to the ceiling. It's a bit unconventional, but at least one other member has done so and was happy with the result. As bipoles, they offer great dispersion so should meet the need nicely, and you can get RS42II cheap on clearance.
