Oh yes tell her they must send you by accident bigger one. No seriously you will be happy with it no question. Better to get it now a specially with deal then get 12" and later you will be wondering what if and try to sell 12" to get 15". Did you try to call dealers like Sound Distributors to find out if they can give you better deal for LCR plus 15" sub vs get sub free but pay MSRP for LCR?

Help!

I have a full atmos enabled set up
Running klipsch rp 280fa towers in front
And 140 rp's on top of the 260's.

Now I wanna go in wall but I don't wanna lose too much sound qaulity.

I tried out the in wall r-5626 which was okay
But I've been trying out the in wall R-5800 an wow, they sound as good as the 260 towers.

During this time I mounted the 140rps high on the side wall for better atmos, do you recommend this?
It's actually worked really well.

So I was thinking going in wall R-5800 for surrounds
And the in ceiling cdt-5800's for atmos in the rears
And keep my 280fa's in front?
Or should I go in ceiling cdt-5800s for front atmos too?
Can you run atmos enabled and in ceiling atmos at the same time

Significant difference between the 2650 and 5800...different class of tweeter and driver...and twice the price.

I believe the RP-140SA's were originally designed as Dolby Atmos Enabled Speakers (DAES)...or reflective speakers. When other manufacturer's (i.e. SVS) introduced DAES type speakers, the term "elevation" speaker came into play...and depending on orientation, could be utilized as reflective or direct speakers...and it appears that Klipsch is now marketing the 140's as "elevation" speakers as well. In any case, in answer to your question, other enthusiasts in these threads have used the 140's as direct firing speakers either high on their walls or at the wall and ceiling juncture with very acceptable performance. In fact, these are Dolby accepted configurations...particularly when used as Front Heights (FH) and Rear Heights (RH).

A combination of direct and reflective speakers for Atmos is likely not a recommended configuration. I'm not an SME but theory would suggest that there will be adverse effects due to timing and phase differences. In some cases, this may not matter, but the intent/idea is to reproduce sound objects in space as the director and sound mixer intended. The intended effects would obviously be lost/diffused if the intended sound(s) reached the listener's ears at different times. Conventional wisdom likely dictates keeping apples to apples. As a suggestion, you may want to visit the Atmos thread as there are SME's and folks there who have had to improvise due to various room/environmental constraints. Good luck in search of your solution!

@ultraflexed I agree with @Gene4th answer plus like he said Atmost thread is definitelly more helpful. I use only FH for Atmos now. I want to get better Atmos set up but kind of still didn't dig deep in to this yet. I been focusing more on 4K.
