Picked up 2 pairs of klipsch r-41sa speakers when on the daily deal at Frys. I have another pair on hold at the same price of $249. I had planned to just get one pair for use for the rears and then I went in the store and they had 2 pair left so I picked them up with the idea of using them for my 4 atmos.
I can get above my ceiling through the garage drop down ladder, but there is another layer of plywood above the ceiling and it's a tight fit to get to where I think the top of the ceiling is. It seems as if the ceiling drywall is double layered or something also. With all that fun to deal with I started thinking about alternatives to IN ceiling. I believe that these would sound better since they are in a cabinet and not stuck in the ceiling.
They are pretty heavy so I will need to find some good mounts. I'm not too worried about screwing into the speakers. I'll disassemble one to make sure I'm not hitting any vital components. Since my ceiling is slanted the wedge shape of the speakers will help.
I've tried to not make many compromises to the theater by worrying about "down the road" , but if/when the time comes to sell and I need to make the theater back into two rooms itll be a lot easier to fill in some screw holes than it would be to call in a drywall guy to fill in 4 8" holes.
$$ left to buy...
Center channel ?? RP-440??
Side surround speakers (RP-402S?)
Projector (epson 5050ub?)
Receiver and amp..?
I need to find a thread on good 11.2 channel setups maybe using a 9.2 (with 11.2 processing) and amp to power my rp-8000s.
