I think Emotiva have a range of in ceiling speakers


https://emotiva.com/products/emotiva/speakers-0
I have a pile of stuff that pushes out squiggly waveforms from smaller squiggly waveforms that sometimes come from 1's and 0's.
It's wonderful to behold as long as you don't let the magic smoke out.

Life is short! Enjoy the music while it plays, when it stops, there might be a chair for you...or  maybe not.

car speakers are often a good cheap source too but often the grill colour is black and in a white ceiling might not be the best.

Atmos - need the ceiling speaker to fire down straight ?

There are those with Pivoting tweeter and some with angled woofer.
I even find one specific brand (SpeakerCraft AIM series) with pivoting woofer & tweeter (Not Cheap  >:()

Yeah, some are pretty expensive..
I guess the Def Techs are more affordable then..

Actually havin tilting tweeters might work well, so they can double up as side surrounds for conventional surrounds too at a stretch..

Bro Tane:
If they are Not sold by Amazon, then I don't think they qualify.

Bro Peng
Do you sell them or alternatives?

I want a small footprint one, as it has to fit between the downlights.
Is this ok or is your AG brand micros out of my budget?

Cheers
