I have currently 2 KEF iQ3's as Main left and right speakers and a iQ6c as my center. (I have another pair if iQ3's but have no desire to run the wiring behind the couch for them. In my house (while I had the ceilings ripped out) I ran speaker wire over the couch in two prime locations for in-ceiling speakers. Does anyone have any review's/recommendations on two in-ceiling speakers that most closely match my iQ3's?
I was looking at a pair of CR160 but wasn't sure if I should get the CR or QR series.
The CR has the "island waveguide" that is supposed to help with off-axis response but is oddly cheaper than the QR series.
Any suggestions? I assume I should get the 160 series since they are 6.5 inches in diameter, the same as my main L&R...correct? Or should I try and shoot for the 200 series (8")?
FYI, the wiring was run to where the yellow insulation closest to the camera shot was taken. Additionally, I ran R-19 non-fiberglass insulation to fill in the gaps where insulation was previously not installed. Sound absorption in the room is 500% better. The TV is located in the corner (wife wouldn't let me mount over the fireplace (insert crying).
