I have posted this in other similar threads, but thought it might help someone here:
We have a remodeled family room HT set up, with dark wood beamed cathedral ceilings. Back in 2015, we decided to go Atmos and add ceiling speakers. For WAF factors, I needed a small (but robust) speaker to surface mount on the beamed ceilings, yet disappear into the woodwork (so to speak)
. After a prolonged search, we ended up with these:
They are tiny, aimable and put out a surprising soundfield. As a bonus, they are priced right
FWIW, sound is very important to us. After going down the speaker rabbit hole for 30 years, I thought I had an incurable form of "upgradeitis" (common here at AVS
). However Jim Salk (appropriate name) cured me; and I have been "stable" for 15 years now.
That is, our front soundstage is anchored by Salksound.
Jim custom built three identical (MTM design) speakers for our L/C/R. They have moved with us from home to home and continue to amaze me. I am sharing this as an aside to illustrate that the tiny BIC surrounds can hold their own with Jim's masterpieces.
Note, the tiny Bic DV-32Bs are heavy
. They have a massive magnet structures for their small size. Almost 7 lbs each! This means that you need to take care with your mounting protocols. You don't want them falling on someone
