@ScottG Maybe I should do a combination of a woofer/tweeter there instead and ditch the BG midrange driver alltogether? Maybe due to space, I'm just better off with a two way?

-EDIT: YUP!

-just use these two drivers for ALL CHANNELS. (..the morel has wide dispersion beyond 2 kHz and the aurum cantus driver is good a bit below 2 kHz.)

-if that's to expensive for your ceiling speakers, then choose another cone driver with similarly wide-dispersion as high as 2 kHz with an fs below 90 Hz

In-keeping with the Carbon Fiber look at a lower price (which would be more than suitable for your ceiling speakers):

SB Acoustics SB17CRC35

It could have been a number of factors, but I've heard both the TSCW636 and 17CRC35 at the same location on the same equipment, and they do not sound similar at all.

If you are going 2-way, the 636 is the overhung woofer, and the 634 is the underhung midrange.
I really like my TSCW636 midbasses.

Later,
Wolf

-yeah, I've heard the Morel and really like it. I've NOT heard the SB carbon fiber.


Still, we are talking about ceiling speakers here (for the SB drivers), AND dsp corrected at that. (..and of course the Morel drivers for the front channels are also dsp corrected).


My only real concern here is the orientation of the Aurum Cantus AMT tweeters in the ceiling in relation to the listeners to avoid the driver's vertical dispersion loss.

@scottg the AMTs will be mounted directly about the couch. The way the living room is designed itís small, thereís only two possible places a person can sit when watching a movie and they will be right above.

A representation of what should work for both pairs of ceiling speakers:


Atmos (over-head of listeners in-ceiling):

Left: tweeter-midbass * Left Listener Right Listener * Right: midbass-tweeter


Rear (behind listeners in-ceiling) about in-line with Atmos speakers:

midbass ***************************************** midbass
tweeter ****************************************** tweeter


-note that in neither case is the tweeter "above" the midbass driver as would be with your Left Center and Right channels (in a typical stand-mount design). Instead the tweeter is "opposed"/parallel to the driver and shifts position depending on Atmos vs. Rear channels.

Ex.

Here is Greg's opposed raal tweeter and Neo 8 relative to the woofer (middle pic):
