That is a great suggestion.

I had no idea there existed out in the marketplace inceiling speakers with compression drivers. I guess you learn something new every day.

How big is your room?

I think the F2 is a fine choice for all but the largest rooms, and even then, you can add a second one using the slave unit option.

Since you are using 3677s up front, get the JBL surrounds and don't worry about the Deftechs. In fact, I would step up to the 8340s so you have compression drivers in all your speakers - you can get...

What front LCR are you using?

The 8320 is horn loaded but does not use a compression driver so it isn't as efficient as the 8340 etc. It's a fine high output surround.

I know the x-curve is a part of the speaker crossover network, but I assume that one could still EQ it flat (or flat enough) with enough correction in the 8khz-20khz region. I am sort of surprised...

I noticed that Klipsch has some new surrounds and interestingly, the details page says they are "75Hz-20kHz +/- 3dB per X curve -10dB 49Hz".

I would have thought they rolled off well below 20khz...

And lastly, the 3677n vs the 3252n, which appears to have two lesser woofers, the same size CD, but a bigger waveguide, and also extends higher.

Those QSCs look nice and I like the slim profile, like the 3677s have.

In the US, they cost roughly $1000 for the SC-1150 and $800 for the SC-1120, so they are 50-80% more expensive than the...

I actually wish it was lower so there was less volume in the room (may need two orbitshifters, haha), but the first floor is all specced at 12 foot so kind of stuck with it.
