    Hi everyone. I recently upgraded the main part of my Home Theater setup. I have a Marantz AV7702MKII pre. amp, Emotiva XPA 5 Gen. 3 amp, 4 Elac Uni-Fi UF5 speakers, SVS PB2000 sub. Right now I have the classic 5.1 set up. I have the UF5’s placed in each corner angled in, the sub is on the right side of the TV, and the center Uni-Fi UC5 speaker above TV angled down (only option due to space). My room is 12′ Wide x 20′ deep x 8′ High. I’m going to purchase 2 Uni-Fi UB5’s to place along back wall and move the two UF5’s forward to make the classic 7.1.4 setup. I have been trying to find a good sounding timbre matched in ceiling speaker to go with this setup. I don’t want to insult anyone for mentioning another brand but I don’t see any Elac in ceiling speakers. Just to throw this out first are there any plans for Elac in ceiling speakers? If not this speaker seams to pop up a lot. https://rslspeakers.com/c34e-ceiling-speaker/ RSL C34E its not very expensive and the woofers seem a little small but it has a pretty good following. They are open backed so I would build a box to help out the sound and keep insulation from touching the speakers. I don’t mind spending moore but I want everything to match and sound great. I have an open area above the ceiling so speaker depth will not be a problem. By the way the 5.1 setup sounds awesome. The speakers are breaking in and have I have been dialing in the pre amp a little bit more every time I get some alone time with it. Thank you for any help. Tom

    Here was another option I was looking at. https://www.polkaudio.com/products/900-ls Polk 900-LS. I don’t know if being a 3-way speaker if it will timbre match better. Thanks.

    Elac is releasing their own in-wall and in-ceiling speakers in Jan/Feb 2017. There are models to match both the Debut and Uni-Fi lines. I bought a pair of UF5’s and a UC5 for a home theater. Waiting on the IW-U61-W model to be released to use 4 as surrounds.
