    Is my ceiling negatively affecting my up-firing Atmos speakers?

    Has anyone made flat panel speakers with ceiling tiles and an exciter?

    Quite a few YT vids on making wall-mount flat panel speakers from wall tiles or similar material and an 'exciter'. They certainly don't look like they'd be any good for pumping out loud rock music, but apparently they are supposed to sound very nice with more gentle music. Has anyone had a go...

    Where to place Atmos on wall with 18' ceiling? And which speakers are best?

    I've read a # of threads about high ceilings but not seeing exactly how to best compensate for my 18-20' ceilings & will wall mounted Atmos work since ceiling mounts are out of the question for every reason.

    Ceiling- or top-of-wall mounted height speakers

    It's probably a tale as old as time but I'm speccing up a dedicated cinema room in the garden - planning on a 7.2.4 setup. What are the thoughts on mounting angled height speakers on the walls vs in-ceiling speakers? I am focussing on sound-proofing so not wild in cutting four large holes in...

    In ceiling speakers help

    Planning a cinema build my ceiling will have 100mm insulation and plasterboard I’m assuming that’s 25mm. I obviously don’t want to go straight through the insulation as this will then lose its thermal qualities, so it seems I can get a slimline ceiling speaker who’s depth won’t go thorough so...
