Hello all, been a long time lurker.  I come in need of some assistance.

 

I am working on a job for my boss that wants to do an in-ceiling setup for his living room.  The way the tv is situated it is flanked by two large windows left and right and doesn't want to do free standing speakers.  Due to this, we need move to the ceiling.  The only issue seems to be the center channel.  Where the TV is mounted, the ceiling has a beam directly in the center. 

 

Any recommendations on how to pull off a center ceiling mount speaker that would need to straddle the beam?  Would it be possible to utilize two smaller speakers to keep things symmetrical? Any recommendations?

If audience sits at more at center, no center speaker might be better.


If audience sits far off axis, you need to find a way to incorporate center speaker.


Multiple tweeters left and right of beam sounds bad. One tweeter to one side means other side has blocked view to tweeter I suspect.


Ceiling fronts sound like a huge compromise in sound quality, esp. if high ceilings.
