On ceiling active monitors as Atmos heights
I'm adding 6 height channels to my current 7.2 system. I'm thinking of using something like JBL Professional 305P/306P/308P MkII, Yamaha HS5/7, TANNOY REVEAL 502/601 or something similar. I need to use on ceiling mounting due to the room configuration. I understand that using active monitors means that I need to drug supply power cables in addition to signal ones.
I like a concept of active speakers (or at least active crossovers + separate amps) in general and it seems to me that these active monitors may give me a decent price/performance for the application.
My current speakers are triamped Magnepan 3.6 + III for LCR and sides, Klipsch KSB 2.1 for back and dual SVS Ultra subs. The room is about 21'*18'*8' with a lot of sound traps.
Any reason why I shouldn't do it this way?
