I am not sure how that would work but or if it would work but I might have to experiment with it in the near future just to hear the actual effect.
Klipsch makes the RP140SA and this can be facing up from a speaker and acts as an Dolby Enabled speaker (aka bouncer) or you can mount them on the wall near the ceiling facing down.
Nothing "magical" about a Dolby Enabled speaker, its a speaker, nothing more, nothing less.
Use them the way you like, and the special network inside a Dolby Enabled speaker is just a bump in a specific frequency to make them more able to bounce of a ceiling.
When you do not bounce, Audyssey will take care of this
All brands with DE speakers could be used this way if the brand makes it possible for wall mounting.
Or mount it yourself with a speaker bracket on the wall, and take any speaker you want
I like the RP140SA du to its build-inn wall mounting option, or put it on the front speaker facing up and see what you like better !
Or do both, 2 bouncing, and 2 facing down direct, who knows how good this can sound, maybe the best of both worlds.......
