I was actually referring to audiofan1, who seemed to be implying that he heard tonal differences between different brands/types of HDMI cables. Which is nonsense.

Yes, you can use any old speaker and point it up at the ceiling to bounce sound and create a "virtual" overhead effect. That's what the "official" Dolby-enabled speakers do, with some proprietary...

Thanks... yeah, they use bipoles in a couple of their installations for ceiling speakers, which reinforces my view that if you really want/need wide-dispersion, you can't beat bipoles.

Sure, why not? They're basically the same speaker but with an 8" woofer instead of a 10" right?

So you end up with a crossover 20Hz higher, so what?
