I just seen the E1 is actually sold out atm. I have bookshelf’s for my sides at 110 degrees and typically run them 1-2dB hotter than the fronts.

Although much more expensive the E2 pair would be ideal.

$469

Also if you don’t want to spend so much you could get the Fluance XLBP for $199 in black or walnut also being a bipole design such as the E2’s.

I'd run two more JBL in-cielings in the wall for surrounds (mounted to a backer box on wall) to get a match with your Atmos speakers. And they already have a wide dispersion pattern that you want for Atmos speakers. IMO, you don't want bipoles or dipoles for surrounds in an Atmos set--you want direct radiating, wide dispersion monopoles--and you want those speakers to match either the LCR or the overheads, if possible. I personally run Canton 880 in-ceilings in a similar set up for surrounds and overheads and it sounds great.

Here is a useful link if you don't have it already:

if you have any concerns about running the 4 ohm speakers , get a cooling fan for your yamaha, there are several options depending on the location (rack mount or stand, console, etc)

Audyssey is a great start, but not always a great finish.
Receiver:Marantz SR-7012, Speakers:Def Tech ST-8060 towers, CS-8040 center, SR-8040 surrounds, Pro Monitor 1000 heights

I have a few ac infinity fan units in my network rack, i will pick up a receiver unit from them as well. They make awesome stuff, and since my cabinet will be closed in front and the only opening will be in the back, im sure it will get extra hot in there.

i put the orders in today for the hsu dual 3.5 and emotiva t2/c2. i really wanted the dual big subs but needed a push, and as far as the speakers, yep, buying blind. what can i say, i like to live life on the edge. Good thing Emotiva has a risk free trial. Its hard for me to demo speakers in stores as most A/V dealers in NYC area really only carry 3-4 lines of speakers that they focus on. I would spend days driving around the tri state area, not to mention spending more on parking lots than a pair of subs would cost. Hopefully I wont regret turning to an awesome bunch of people on this forum for help, though i doubt i will.
