Sur Presence Left & Right- considering in ceiling speakers
Yes, this means 6 speakers for the surrounds. Just wondering if anyone else has done it this way and found it to be incredibly expansive, OR overkill? I cannot do front presence speakers due to a sloped ceiling.
My room is 13ft wide. My surround back speakers would be at ear height about 6ft apart. The surround presence speakers would probably be in ceiling, and about 1 ft further out (wider) from the surround back speakers.
Overkill, or awesome surround experience (looking to give the sense of a deep and wide room).
I am running the same setup albeit, I am running front presence instead of rear presence. I run Klipsch RB-61 as my front height speakers and Klipsch RS-52's as my surround and surround back speakers supported by RF-63's as my front and a Klipsch RC-52 as my center. I like this setup and it sound amazing when watching movies. I also have a Polk sub and rythmik 15" DIY downfiring sub connected so it is in essents a 9.2 system at the moment. I am exploring the option of adding rear presence speakers to boost it up to a true 11.2 system but my room size and layout is difficult to incorporate those last two speakers.
