Angled atmos speakers

Can we compile a list of in-ceiling speakers for atmos use that are able to tilt roughly 35-45°? (Or ones that are fixed but at roughly that angle?)

After watching the HT gurus YouTube channel it is obvious that straight down firing options are not the way to go.

I would like to order a set this week and am having a hard time finding much on the market. I’d like to keep it to under $400/ pair but willing to adjust my budget if need be.

If you want the best for less, consider Beale Street units. Carbon Fiber Woofer / Titanium Tweeter*, Woofer /Treated can be Angled. Completely sealed with Bass Vortex porting

Exceptional Bass response.(<40 hz) 6" & 8" sizes. (*...actually there are 3 variants. Two with Polypropylene Woofers and Silk or Aluminum Tweeters....and the Bad Boy as shown and described.)

Being sealed makes them absolutely GREAT for Drop Ceiling applications or for isolating Ceiling speaker bleed-over into rooms above.
