I am getting ready to install two CSW200 Subs into my newly completed home. It will be an in-ceiling installation of both, as my house is on a slab. The room is a 20x17 room with 11 ft ceilings. I have currently installed, over the months of building, 2- LC265iís as Main R & L and 1- TC265i as the Center and 4 LC80iís as the L & R - Rear Surrounds in the ceiling. I have the placement figured out for the subs but my issue with the CSW200ís are how to neatly put them in the ceilings. I have some new in the box, very cheap round 5 ľ in wall speakers that I actually took the speakers out just to use the frames with the easily locking cams and grills Ė they are almost an exact match of the grilles to the LC80iís that are currently in the ceiling.
As bass is non-directional will the small openings of these 5 ľ in wall frames be sufficient? I would love to just have 2 frames and grilles of any of the LC/TC/RC 80i series speakers for the perfect match but cannot and will not justify dismantling such a pricey speaker . I already have two A/C vents located in the ceiling near the potential install sites so I do not want to put up more return Ė A/C type vents. Any thoughts?
