The only hitch might be (depending upon the AVR...) you would have to run them as Top Rear as opposed to Rear High. But, I still think that they would work...
I would suggest that if you go that route, consider Monitor Audio Silver 1s for your rear surrounds ($875 pair at Crutchfield and most other retailers state-side. They would be a timbre match with the Monitor Audio FX side surrounds.
Sounds like a plan!
Plan is definitely starting to come togather thats for sure!!
To be honest the work was not too bad as a builder/worker is going to be installing them anyway, so i won't need to do much apart from order him around and make sure he is doing things correctly
Which is why I'm still looking for the best solution, but you say that this should work just the same, lets see if anyone else has any suggestions!
Im most likely going to go with the Marantz receiver, the one that can do 11 channels (with an extra stereo amp i guess). If we go this route, as those current speakers would be used instead the second pair of in ceiling atmos speakers then YES i would have them as TOP REAR (is this what the atmos speakers location is called?) instead of BACK REAR.
If you see my pics of my room from my post 1-2 days ago on here, do you think the positions of those current backs are perfect or do they need to be changed in anyway?
Those Monitor Audio Silver 1s look good, thanks for that suggestion, is that the best ones that you think i should go for? Anyone else with any other recommendations? These cost £500 in UK which are affordable. But i want the best solution, but also need to take into consideration i guess that the speakers need to match my current B&W's.
Also any suggestions for the in ceiling speakers? Do they need to point straight down or can the angle be twisted inside the speaker grill to point them to the coach from which ever location i install them in front of the Seats.
