In Ceiling Speakers

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, I am new to this forum and am seeking advice. My parents are looking to get in ceiling speakers for their back surround speakers (5.1). They currently have: Klipsch HD Theater 1000 speakers with only the front 3 and the sub set up. Their budget ~$250
They have a high vaulted ceiling as well, ~ 20ft.

Powered by powered by Dennon AVR1910

Speakers I have considered:
Klipsch Reference Series R-1650-C
Speakercraft AIM5-One
Polk Audio RC80i
Pioneer S-IC651-LR CST Series 6.5-Inch
NHT IC1 6.5-Inch
Parasound - C-65 - In-Ceiling Speakers - Pair
(Updated to have links now that I have 3 posts lol )

I am having trouble telling which of these is the best, and was hoping you guys could help. Feel free to add your own suggestions. Thank you.

After doing some further research, I am leaning towards the NHT iC1's, but I would still like some advice either way

Might as well just get some of the monoprice speakers for 1/3 the price. They sound almost as good as the name brands (one reviewer even said they are the same as Polk) but cost a lot less. I wouldn't even consider higher end speakers unless you can get them out of the ceiling.

Cool, thanks for the advice. Their ceiling is angled, so would the:

8 Inches Kevlar In-Ceiling Speakers (Pair) - w/ 15 Degree Angled Woofer

be better than

8 Inches Kevlar 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers (Pair) ?

And since the ceilings are rather high, would the first one be better and directing the sound to where the listener is? Thanks.
