    im thinking to go atmos again and thinking to use xtz s2 speakers as they are flexible with mounting and the tweeter seems to be in the center of the woofer.

    anyway has anyone used these for either surrounds and height or even ceiling mounted? what is the best crossover i should set them?
    i had a look at the xtz thread but too many pages to go though so any help here will be appreciated..

    i wont be using them as atmos modules.

    Scott76 has a full XTZ cinema set which includes 3 pairs of S2's. 1 pair on the ceiling at front 1 pair on ceiling at the rear and a pair on the rear wall as surround back. I did go over his place for a listen last year and it did sound very good.

    The S2's work very well as heights as they do surrounds or on ceilings. There are multiple placement options. We demoed these to a thousand plus attendees at Munich last year as heights in an Auro setup. A great spread of sound and very effective. Dispersion is wide and they are a great match for many a speaker. What's the colour of your walls? We'll have a limited stock of white S2 in a couple of weeks (timeframe is optimistic).

    Any further questions or a demo, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

    I'm definitely interested in the White colour, will it be the same price?
