The theater has gone ATMOS!
Just recently purchased four B&W CCM664'
s to complete a 5.1.4 setup. Below are some small photos of the install and my initial impressions of the speakers.
Installed and with or without grills
In summary the install was pretty straightforward, but I would caution potential adopters that these speakers do require a bit of depth so if you are in a basement install like mine you will need to make certain you have enough clearance between joists and the flooring above. In terms of the speakers themselves, they sound great. They have a wide dispersion and the tweeter as seen in the photo below can be tilted towards the MLP and when tilted to one of three positions, you simply switch the tab at the bottom so that the processor can acknowledge the tilt and apply the proper delay.
I purchased my first pair through eBay and the second pair through BestBuy with a combination of cash and rewards points.
The install occurred on Friday evening so naturally Saturday and Sunday were spent watching my small ATMOS collection of films
Mad Max - Fury Road
and Dolby ATMOS CEDIA demo disc
Both San Andreas and Mad Max have a lot of bass from the heights which these speakers handled really well by comparison to some of the setups I heard at CEDIA. They have enough LF to hit the needed rumble before the frequency cut (70Hz) to my HSU subwoofer.
My setup is now complete, so aside from some general cosmetic changes and perhaps an upgraded projector and screen (2.35 ratio) way down the road I think I am done. Thanks to those of you who have viewed the setup and all of the members who have provided advice along the way.
If I can ever answer any questions or provide any insight please message me here or through PM's. I am always happy to help where I can..
