Question Recommended ceiling speakers

Hello AVS Forum!! This is my first post on here and I hope my question hasn’t been asked a thousand times before. I am looking to add 4 ceiling speakers to my living/home theater room to make my system a 5.2.4. I am running a Marantz SR7011 receiver with Polk Audio RTI A9 fronts, CSI A6 center, and RTI A3 for the rear with dual SVS PB 2000 subwoofers. What would be the best ceiling speakers to use that would match well with the rest of my system? My room is approximately 17x26 if that makes any difference.

Most forum members will recommend RSL Speakers C34E.

Check out their website.

I have Polk LSiMs all around but use Focal Sibs for atmos, which I am pretty happy with. You may also want to check out Svs prime elevations.

In-ceiling speakers or On-ceiling speakers?

My neighbors all listen to great music. Whether they like it or not.

I haven’t heard of the rsl speakers before. Still pretty new in the HT world. I’ll give them a look. I have looked at the prime upfiring speakers but would rather go in ceiling. Also haven’t seen any of the on ceiling speakers. Any plus side to on over in ceiling speakers?

When I had polk audio, my ceiling speakers for Atmos were the RC80i's. They matched well with my RTi's.

Seems like Polk would be the most appropriate set, as they should have the same house sound as the mains. That said, much depends on your layout. How wide and deep is the area you have to cover? How far away will the in-ceiling speakers be from the seating? Have you consulted the Dolby site for specifications for speaker placement in a 5.x.4 set-up?

It's a VIRTUAL channel unless stated otherwise.
