I didn't expect to get anything but mids and highs from the ceiling speakers. What would be a suitable future upgrade? (for planning purposes)The added bonus with mounting them on the ceiling is that they are easily replaced with better speakers in the future. You won't be getting much output from 2.75" full-range drivers. That's smaller than the mid-range driver on my centre speaker...
Yes you can keep your Yamahas - no need to worry about their specs as you WILL be aiming them at your earsThanks guys. The common consensus here is that I can keep and mount 4 of the Yamahas on the ceiling rather than go for in-ceiling or atmos-enabled speakers (whew ). Pointing them or not towards the MLP is something that can be easily changed in the future as I'll be using adjustable mounts anyway.
The specs on the speakers are quite limited in information: NS-P20 - Specs - Yamaha - Other European Countries
There is nothing about the firing angle, but I can assume wide-enough dispersion; these are generic HT speakers. (Amazon reviews are also overwhelmingly positive)
Height speakers can be sent full range signals - it all depends on the movie - so get the best speakers you can afford/justify.I didn't expect to get anything but mids and highs from the ceiling speakers. What would be a suitable future upgrade? (for planning purposes)
They seem pretty heavy and large for "on-ceiling". I only have 8' ceiling height.The NHT SuperZero 2.1 or SuperOne 2.1 would be excellent speakers for Atmos in your room.
So what would be better for Atmos: the small Yamahas, or the 6.5" POLKMC60 suggested on the 1st page? Or would something like RSL c34e angled baffle be a considerable improvement?Height speakers can be sent full range signals - it all depends on the movie - so get the best speakers you can afford/justify.
Or none of the above !!
