Nice, full RSL speakers and subs! Have you heard them before?

Are you getting some kind of bulk shipping? Think you have one pallet full with the subs, mains, surround and atmos!

Already have 3 of the CG23S, I love them.
Love their size, their performance for their size & $ ! Great value ! Solid built. Not bright sounding nor muffled & boxy either.

As for the speedwoofer & in-ceiling speakers I'm going with blind faith on the brand & owner reviews.

They have a new CG5 line, but unfortunately it is quite a bit more expensive than the CG3 & quite a bit bigger in dimensions as well. They also have a bigger subwoofer in the pipeline coming soon, I believe 12inch driver to complement the CG5 line. There is also a rumour they might be introducing a tower speaker to match the new CG5 bookshelf & centre.

Their shipping is quite reasonable, they use FedEx. Will be getting the 6 C34E in ceiling speakers first, then later will be shipping in the additional 4 CG23s I need plus the 2 subs.
 
No space to put all the boxes, crashing at wife's parents place for the time being. So unfortunately have to split the shipping. My existing AV gears are already all boxed up & taking up space at brother's place, can't add more boxes, he will kill me

Need to see if the split shipping end up costing significantly more, if it does, then will just wait till Reno is 70% done & then get them shipped all together.

No enclosure. Just stuck behind false ceiling. However, get an enclosure if you can. Also reduce sound bouncing off internally entire ceiling.

Since you are doing your reno and might have a future inclination towards a projector, would recommend that you lay in your HDMI, Ethernet and Power cables to the back of your living room during your reno period so that you have a painless upgrade option in the future.  You can also cater for power point at the front area in the false ceiling to support a motorized screen option in future.  Just my two cents.

You will always run out of powerpoints too ???
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.
