Dayton Audio CS620ECT 6-1/2" 2-Way Enclosed Ceiling Speaker 70V
Spacing? Quick answer would be appreciated. THANKS
We have a large fellowship center with about 15 ft high ceilings. We have some of these in classrooms with 10 ft ceilings and like the sound. They are better than cheaper open back PA speakers but more expensive. The 15 ft ceiling room has standard acoustical tile drop ceiling and several feet of space above the ceiling. It looks to me that "pros" usually space these things out about the same distance as the height of the ceiling. The room has carpeted floors and hard walls. Comments or suggestions? Can we get open back speakers to work as well if we cover them with fiberglass bats after installation.
Depends on the size of the room and the amount of sound you are looking for. It could be overkill to put them 15 ft from each other if the room is uniform in shape. If you have the room to put them evenly spaced at between 15 and 20 ft you should be fine.You could use open back speakers with fiberglass baffles, but I wouldn't count on the same satisfaction. If you know this product and like it already, any sort of compromise will likely leave you feeling as if you got less than what you were hoping for.
