Ceiling Speakers for Heritage HT

Recommended Posts

I'm in the process of (finally) building my home theater.  9.4.6 configuration using all Klipsch Heritage speakers for the bed channels.  3 LaScala I LCR and 6 Heresy I surrounds.  I'm about to order 6 speakers for the ceiling.  Since there are no Heritage speakers built for ceiling installation, I'm leaning toward the CDT-5800 C II.  Can you share any experience with this combination in timber matching and seamlessness of sound for HT use?  I'm about ready to give Corey a call, but thought I'd check in here first.

 

Cheers!

That is one fantastic list of speakers in your HT. Your budget might help chose, those 5800s are nice speakers, and should do well. Actually Cory would be a good person to answer this.

Cory suggested that I consider the ic-650 instead of the THX-5002 as in ceiling surrounds with my Jubilees

How big is your room?

 

Once it's in, report back on which configs sound better.

 

5.1 up to everything pumping....

 

Which movie is your test movie for the install?

I've got some R-5650-W's for the surrounds for my La Scalas and custom center channel.  They do very well, in my opinion.

Since I don't have vaulted ceilings, I think I'd better stay with the in-ceiling speakers that I can aim.  I like the idea of the separate woofer and traditional horn tweeter arrangement though.

You aim too please

 

 

You need a comma or remove an "o".  

 

Period helps as well.  😛

I’m sticking with HIIs. Atmos is overrated.

He’s already there with heresies, he might as well go for the atmos....😜

Thanks for the warm welcome and information.  One other question related to the ceiling speakers.  Since this will be a soundproofed room, I'll be installing the ceiling speakers in backer boxes.  I've looked at the Klipsch specs for the 5800's but there is no info on recommended volume for an enclosure.  Any experience to share?  I'll ask Cory as well.

 

Thanks,

 

Chuck

These are designed to mount without any enclosure, but you can build any type of box if that helps with your soundproofing.

I purchased the Klipsch enclosures for my 5800s.  Fireproofing is a nice touch for the enclosures plus help sound from getting from my basement to my main floor.
