    Hi to everyone, I'm currently moving to a new home. I am working on my home-cinema setup, and I am currently trying to install 4x B&W BB6C (back boxes) in the ceiling. However, on the manual, there is a step (4) where they use some sort of tape to seal it. I don't know what this tape is, nor...
  4. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    I'm upgrading my family room to a 5.1.4 system and the forward in-ceiling atmos speakers will fall right on a drywall joint. Will this cause problems with the dry wall? The speakers are around 4lb so I'm not so much worried about the weight but rather the tape on the seam peeling away when I cut...
  5. DIY Speakers and Subs
    Hey Guys, Newbie here, I've been researching for the last 6 months and haven't found any good solutions for an atmos setup because of my vaulted ceiling (attached). The issue is due to the wife I can only put in (in-ceiling) for atmos, so no upfiring and no pendants. As you can see from the...
  6. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    Hi all, I'm transitioning from having massive Klipsch reference towers with built in subwoofers (RP3) that I bought nearly 20 years ago into a much lower key Atmos setup with in-ceiling and in-wall speakers. Upgraded to a 65" LG C8 OLED and fully embraced 4K HDR awhile back, and the receiver...

    Hello everyone, Need some quick advice. I am shifting to a new house and builder is offering a 7.1 HT system (as an upgrade). It will consist of all in-ceiling speakers and he is using Klipsch Pro 18RC for all 7 speakers (I am trying to get model details for sub-woofer). I mainly watch movies...

It introduced 50 new products at the show, including four lines of architectural speakers that are directly aimed at the CI industry. The new CI-friendly speaker lines—Custom, Designer, Professional Reference...

    I know that some of you are ready to wear your keyboards out on how a HT setup should not be in the ceiling. I get it. However there are 2 things that will not change. First my house layout. The room doesn't have much of a back wall and due to window, fireplace, and door placements there's...

    HELP! I'm having a difficult time trying to decide how to set up my 5.1 speaker system in our family room given a number of constraints: First and foremost is that there are a large number of bad acoustics, from hard, uneven surfaces (brick fireplace, hardwood floors, cementitious plaster...
  12. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Q: I have a Denon 2313CI AVR and a viewing room that has an open floor plan with 10-foot high ceilings. Because of the terrible layout, all speakers (B&W) other than the center channel and subwoofer are mounted in the ceiling. Predictably, the soundfield is poor. Will a new Atmos AVR like the...

    Hey guys, I did a little bit of searching before posting, but this is kind of a last minute thing as we need a general plan to be in place this weekend (to run cables and such), so I figured I'd defer to you guys. Sorry in advance! An old friend of mine came to me yesterday asking about some...

    I searched for comments on the L65MkII from Noble Fidelity and didn't find much, so I'm putting a thread here for comments on these speakers. I needed some new stereo speakers. I have used Dick Sequerra's Pyramid Metronome Met 7s in this room for 30 years and loved every minute of it. But they...
