    yes it depends if you call pointing straight down zero degrees or whether you call aiming across the ceiling zero degrees. I consider straight down zero degrees. I'll send you a diagram later, I have to run tight now.

    Im sorry if my messages are coming in duplicates. My email address is [email protected] I have the schematic from ML regarding the ML67i they have an angle from the ceiling to the center of the tweeter at 60* so I guess that means from the floor towards the ceiling would be 30*. I guess I never knew what way angles are measured, from the ceiling or from the floor.


    Thanks

    Hello,


    I have been researching in ceiling speakers for quite a while and came across your post about angles. I was considering the RSL's but their angle is 15*. I saw that the Martin Logans ML 67i have an angle of 30* ( I think.), they sent me a schematic that said it was 60*. What was the math you used for figuring out what is ideal for direct sound. My ceilings are 8' and my MLP will be 10 feet from the TV. My budget will only allow for the ML's or the RSL's. I don't see much in the way of the ML installer series speakers. Do you have any input either way? Thank you so much in advance for any help

    Hi Ellebob, I read some of your posts about soundbars and wondered what is your opinion of the ML Cadence with Sub compared to Paradigm Soundscape? You seem super knowledgeable about audio. I have been trying to learn as much as I can and doing tons of research but research only gets me so far. Problem is, there is no where I can demo the Paradigm to be able to compare it to the Cadence which I listened to and it seemed pretty good. I will be mainly using the SB for movies and streaming show from Roku. I have noticed many of the soundbars muddy voices and that is my biggest concern.

    I really look forward to hearing your opinion.

    Thanks!

    I know I said I made a decision on the Yamaha 107. Went to Costco today and they have a literal closeout. They have 8 left at my Costco. Maybe there is a reason they are closing them out because of issues I don't know.

    Vizio SB4051-D5 for $199.99. It is listed for $429 on the Vizio site and $329 on Best Buy. I have read some really good things about it and some not so good. Do you know anything about this Vizio and is it worth it even at this cheap of a price compared to the Yamaha 107 for the same price? Or should I run from the Vizio?

    Thanks,

    Bob

    Thanks for your response. I do know its not optimal...but the wife.....well, you know. Prior to having the way you see it, it was back in the cabinet, with no insulation and it did sound pretty bad. Moving it flush to the cabinet front, bolting it solidly to the concrete foundation (no cabinet bottom) at the proper angle (They are Thiel speakers with a 30 degree baffle!) to put the front baffle parallel to the cabinet front, and surrounding it with cotton insulation definitely helped.

    I am looking to replace them with something else as I build a full surround system. Thats why Im considering in walls with engineered backboxes vs just front ported or sealed speakers.

    One day we will build a basement that my wife has already agreed will be under my control only. But until then, I need to do the best I can.

    Hi Bob,

    Sorry to bother you again, I got the ysp-1400 but can get the srt-1000 slightly cheaper, look like it has 2 extra "woofers", 1 extra optical in and aptx. Do you expect that it will sound as good or better the ysp-1400?
