    How do you position ceiling speakers? do you place them in the same way to regular speakers i.e two of them equidistant from the sweatspot or is it different for ceiling speakers, do they just disperse sound everywhere. Also with regular speakers you have a tweeter and a woofer, how do these ceiling speakers have just one cone?

    There are as many ceiling speaker types as there are traditional cabinet speakers - you get general purpose ceiling speakers and dedicated Home Theatre ceiling speakers; some are single driver and some are multidriver with directional and steerable drivers.

    We use and supply Atlantic Technology, Sonance and KEF Ci in ceilings - between them they have a range of price and specification to suit most budgets.

    See
    http://www.atlantictechnology.com/ > Products > Hidden Speakers >

    http://www.sonance.com/ > Speakers

    http://www.kef.co.uk/ > Products > Ci Series

    Positioning is a black art - some folk go with what looks right; though that is not always the best option; the steerable units are good if your not sure what's going to be best and want some flexibility once you actually install the speakers into your ceiling.

    If your serious about getting the positioning and type of drivers optimised in an 'installed' set-up we can do a virtual 'room analysis' and advise on best positioning and speaker selection using computer modelling (for a small fee!)

    Any questions please shout.
