hi

i want to use very wide dispersion in ceiling atmos effect in ceiling speakers
that sound incredible from above
where you can hear every fine detail effect from above that sound holographic
with a complete 3d field bubble effect all around you

i was thinking either monitor audio 380 idc or kef 200rr thx or klipsh cdt-5800-c 2 version or any other in ceiling speaker that would do an even better task for what i asked for

i asked dolby laboroties whats ideal to use they said choose in ceiling speakers with the following effect
In general, when choosing overhead speakers, our general direction for overheads is the following
my room is 20 feet wide 11 feet depth 15 feet height

  • Ideally timbre matched to the listener level speakers
  • Ideally power matched to the listener level speakers
  • Ideally as wide of frequency performance as possible with bass signals redirected to the LFE
  • High diffusion (plus/minus 45 degrees) for ceilings 8 to 15 feet high
so what do you all recommend to use

Among the brands listed above I can comment on the KEFs
Been using their stand-mounts for a while and heard other ranges too
KEF uses UniQ (woofer + tweeter seated coaxial); this give better and uniform dispersion
Their architectural series has interesting options, but would require professional help for cabinet design
Ci series has very good specs on paper

The ceiling height (15 feet) is quite high; normally homes have 9-11 feet
Where are you based out of? Architectural speakers may be difficult to source in India

Cheers,
Raghu

In my Atmos setup, I am using 4 kef C160qr in the ceiling and teo c200 for sides. Its working pretty well for me.

You may also want to to evaluate Klipsch in-ceiling speaker range. There are many options according to budget. I have auditioned pro-160 rpc and I think 160 CDT, there could be more. Worth a try.
