Ceiling Height & Speakers for Atmos *doesn't laugh*

Recommended Posts

Heyyyyyyyyy you crazy kids,

 

SO, the last thing I am looking to do before completing this upgrade is ATMOS.

 

I am eyeballing this receiver http://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/pionsclx701/pioneer-elite-sc-lx701-9.2-ch-x-135-watts-networking-a/v-receiver/1.html#!specifications

 

But curious about two things:

 

1.  My ceiling in the basement is 7.5' juuuuuust under the 8-9 foot recommendation by Dolby https://blog.dolby.com/2014/06/dolby-atmos-home-theaters-questions-answered/  and probably too long for the Klipsch Dolby Speakers http://www.klipsch.com/products/elevation-speakers?model=rp-140sa.  Am I right in this assumption?

 

2.  Would (4) Klipsch in ceiling speakers work instead? http://www.klipsch.com/products/reference-in-ceiling-speakers?model=cdt-5800-c-ii

It would work but we're just around the corner from having the pro line with the new RP-style horn.  I've heard them side by side, the new ones are more pleasant.  The 5800's have somewhat of a bright hot spot which may not be as pleasant with a lower ceiling, they are just kind of piercing at 9' and 7.5' would just be more of the same.  If it were me I'd wait for these new ones if possible.  Just depends on how big of a hurry you are.  Oh and the new mounting style is super cool, dude. ;)

Well well well...look who just has allllll the answers! :D

 

I worried that the entire thing will be too bright and piercing no matter what.  So when are these new bad boys gonna come out?  C'mon man details, DETAILS!

They're kind of already out, they were supposedly out in May but got gobbled up real quick.  I suspect later this fall we will see them more easily available, like October.  I don't have an exact date.

It's called Sky Hook, and it's badass.  Spring loaded and it basically snaps into place, no more screwdrivers while it's halfway in the ceiling.
