Hello,


I am moving into a new house which is currently under construction. I have it pre-wired for in-ceiling 5.1 setup.

I am now shopping for the ceiling speakers.


I came across speakers from Athena such as the AS-1C6 and AS-1C6ST.

I will be driving these speakers with my Onkyo 602.


My question is, are there any disadvantages with going with the DVC in-ceiling speakers? Is it even recommended for a 5.1 setup?


I have read that most DVC in-ceiling spkrs are used in small areas for the stereo effect they produce even if you only use one spkr instead of a pair.


Any insights is appreciated. :)

a DVC speaker has 2 separate inputs. left and right. if you used 2 DVC speakers for rear (L/R) then you only have 2 speaker cables - thus wasting the other (half) of the speaker.


you could however use them for 7.1 sound

Thanks for the reply.


So could I then use three AS-1C6 (single voice coil) to function as my L/C/R and then buy two AS-1C6ST (the ones with DVC) to function as rear L/R?


So eventhough I only have 5 physical speakers (and sub), I have a 7.1 setup.


Is this setup feasible?
