    Cool hi i want to use very wide dispersion in ceiling speakers to use

    hi

    i want to use very wide dispersion in ceiling atmos effect in ceiling speakers
    that sound incredible from above
    where you can hear every fine detail effect from above that sound holographic
    with a complete 3d field bubble effect all around you

    i was thinking either monitor audio 380 idc or kef 200rr thx or klipsh cdt-5800-c 2 version or any other in ceiling speaker that would do an even better task for what i asked for

    i asked dolby laboroties whats ideal to use they said choose in ceiling speakers with the following effect
    In general, when choosing overhead speakers, our general direction for overheads is the following
    my room is 20 feet wide 11 feet depth 15 feet height

    • Ideally timbre matched to the listener level speakers
    • Ideally power matched to the listener level speakers
    • Ideally as wide of frequency performance as possible with bass signals redirected to the LFE
    • High diffusion (plus/minus 45 degrees) for ceilings 8 to 15 feet high

    so what do you all recommend to use

    It would seem according to your criteria from Dolby you should go with the brand you are using for main speakers.

    We've had this discussion in the past, and, granted many audio enthusiasts, especially those with more emphasis on stereo, don't understand, or, don't care, that "bubble" they are talking about can't be achieved properly without timbre matched speakers.

    Any speaker will produce asound where it's located, but, to recreate the enveloping bubble, surround, the speakers have to timbre match for seamless panning of sound and for the speakers to mesh with one another.

    People think this statement extreme, but, it really is the same as using mismatched speakers for stereo, it just isn't going to sound right, although, you will hear both channels that way.

    The problem Bryan, is that Emotiva does not make in wall or ceiling speakers. They have on wall.

    But I certainly agree with what you are saying.
