I assumed that a 6.5" speaker would provide a better sound quality and maybe not be as noticeable. I was probably incorrect in my assumption.
There was really only 2 things important to me in building a new house:
1. a large garage,
2. a really nice HT.--i have already purchased a SVS 2000 Ported subwoofer to fill in the lows and now I need 5 ceiling speakers, I know towers and inwalls are preferred but will not work for us. So it is important to me that i get the 5 ceiling speakers right. I do understand the center does the most work and a ceiling speaker is not ideal but its all I got.
I don't mind spending $1000-$1,200.00 for 5 ceiling speakers, if the RSL will fit the bill its a win/win for me as they are less expensive and great quality.
Before I go any further, using all in ceiling is not ideal, but you know that already. I personally think the RSL C34E is a great choice for atmos. I am running 4 of them for front and read heights. Many on the forums like them as well. Not sure how they would work as LCR but I would think they would be ok.
