Hi there so I have a client with what seems like descent sized budget
New house is huge.
So for his home theatre I mentioned 380 idc for the front 3
Then noticed the 280 idc for half the costs
Is there a Huge difference to justify
The cost difference?
And rears say same size and ceiling
Is idc models going overboard for these walls in the rear of room.

Love monitor audio my home theatre does too.😎
As an installer
Even the small 160 Inceiling
With ieast 160 amp
Streaming sounds twice as good as Sonos
$200 less.

Your first mistake is using in ceilings for the fronts

They make 280IDC in a in-wall version. W280IDC
We use the CP-WT380IDCs, for fronts, for most of our standard theaters.

Then whats the diference between the W280 and W380? (Not the WT380) Because the specs list them as the same


I can see why the WT380 would be a better choice

There are occasionally placement limitations due to the way the house is built that forces you to use a speaker in the ceiling. The two times I've done this they sounded GREAT!.

Ceiling speakers in the wall are stupid, though, because they announce "I cannot mount a speaker level" to the entire world.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

I agree, but these are pretty rare occasions. Usually if you can mount a tv, you can mount inwall speakers. But yes, I’ve had a couple places where there were no other choices. But I’d not say it sounded great. It did sound good though.
