Best direction to go Atmos in-ceiling speakers

Okay right now I'm down to decide between two speaker choices. My theater room going to be 15x12 so as of now I'm going with four in-ceiling Atmos but later go six. I need help deciding which will give me the most output Volt10XL diysoundgroup Atmos sealed box or C34E from RSL that's got really good reviews. I really wanted to stick with Volt10XL because i want my theater to be Diysoundgroup match speakers.

V10s all the way. Or, even Volt 8s. I love my Volts and plan to use either V8s or 6s for my Atmos. This place is all about overkill - so go with the Volt 10s!

I’ve never heard the volts so cannot comment on them (although I’ve never heard a single owner that doesn’t love them). I’m running c34e’s for Atmos speakers, and DIYSG speakers for everything else (1099’s, htm-6’s, and htm-8’s). The c34e’s are the last speakers I haven’t replaced with diy options - yet. I’ll relay a few observations. The c34e’s sound great. I have them in two rooms and they have no business costing as little as they do for how good they sound. They’re also an easy in-ceiling fit, as they don’t require boxes, are only 4.25” deep, and are designed to be in-ceiling (cut the holes, insert the speaker, tighten the clamps, and cover with grill). However, while they do manage to work great in my 4000 cubic foot theater room, they are not very efficient. Audyssey sets my 1099’s at -5 to -8 while the RSL’s get set to +5 or more. I’m not sure if it’s a function of their 88db sensitivity or the little 4.5” woofers but they’re much harder to drive than anything else in my system. If I were starting from scratch I’d probably go volt just because of the quality of components, the rave reviews, and my positive experience with 7 other diysg builds. I’d love to hear from anyone who has actually heard both In Atmos duty that offer an a/b comparison!

I just reread your question. If your asking which would give you the “most output” it would have to be the volts 10’s. They’re 95db sensitivity vs 88db, a big 10” woofer cone vs 2 4.5’s, and a power range of 450 watts vs 150.

Overkill... It works!

I'd say put 2499's in the ceiling, if you can...

I went with RSL. I know they are not DIY, but they are absolutely phenomenal. https://rslspeakers.com/c34e-ceiling-speaker/
