Not necessarily true. This isn't a new gimmick, it's an old one that several good speaker companies have incorporated into their speakers over the years. Sound does bounce off of things like walls. According to reviewers, this actually worked, BUT the ceilings would have to be the right height, and I'm assuming the ceilings texture would affect things quite a bit. I'd rather run separate speakers. In the right situation, these could work, and they got great reviews.

I take those reviews with a grain of salt since his BS22's, and ELAC's have also been heralded as the best in their price range. It's very subjective, but people raved about how great just the front 3-ways were with everything.

These are rated 4 ohm so some receivers may have trouble.

I am not an expect on Atmos at all but have been researching it. Their site says 7.5 to 12 foot ceilings.

Have you actually heard these in person? I live in an apartment building, so I am not able to drill holes in my ceiling. I picked up a pair of speakers similar to these (upward firing). They do just fine and make a huge difference. Audiophiles who poo-poo these type of speakers live in a different world than the average Joe in my opinion.

I assume bouncing these off 20 foot ceilings is pretty much pointless?

Yes. Even if you had speakers in the ceiling it would be less than ideal. I would also argue that these "Atmos" speakers that bounce off the ceiling are barely more than a marketing gimmick.

Trying to bounce sound off any height ceiling is pointless.

I have these. Friends complement the look and sound quality independent of the atmos channels. I often put my elite receiver on "extended stereo" when playing music and the atmos channel fills the room with sound. $350 is a solid deal. I paid $450/pr 3 years ago and haven't seen any close since.

Wrong and....wrong. Ceilings in actual commercial atmos theaters r 20-30 feet high. Bouncing sound off of flat (parallel to floor) ceilings also works very well.

Wrong. Please stop giving out baseless "advice".

You assume correctly. You won't get atmos sound with these, although they sound nice...you need atmos ceiling. These are a gimmick. They work in that there is sound coming out of the "enabled" speakers on top. Don't waste your money.

Any Atmos equipped Cinema here has speakers in the ceiling and aren't bouncing sound. I've yet to see that in a commercial setting. I mean it may very well exist, but I think generally they just put the speakers in the ceiling

Exactly. We do. They don't do atmos justice. Bought and returned I am happy with my BS22 and SP T22A. Which sucked less than these.

What I paid: $60 for the pair of BS22
And for the pair of SP T22A: $70
Total cost: $130

Did I hear a $220 difference? Nope.
