THE STYLISH C34E EDGELESS IN-CEILING

EFFORTLESS STYLE AND POWERFUL PERFORMANCE

The new C34E is now edgeless.

Its also sleeker, slimmer, and sonically superior than any other in-ceiling speaker at even double the price. Its the perfect choice for

  • Dolby Atmos
  • DTS:X
  • Home Theater
  • Stereo

Edgeless Design – The C34E’s edgeless design improves aesthetics and allows the speaker to better blend into your ceiling. And with no visible border, painting the speaker is even easier.

Lateral, Phase Coherent Design – Conventional in-ceilings mount the tweeter in front of the woofer which blocks frequencies. The C34E’s lateral driver alignment gives you the full audio spectrum. The C34E’s phase coherency improves sonic realism by allowing the sound from each driver to reach your ear at the same time.

Slim Fit – Now at only 4 inches deep, the C34E fits an even wider variety of ceilings.

Paintable Magnetic Grille – The new C34E is equipped with a magnetic grille, making application and removal effortless. No more difficult grill channel.

Unprecedented Quality – The C34E uses parts you won’t find $300 in-ceilings (we encourage you to check). Polypropylene capacitors, air-core coils, and gold-plated wire terminals, ensure the highest quality sound and the greatest longevity. These in-ceilings will give good bookshelf speakers a run for their money.

I had heard about the C34E on an audio forum I visit but I must confess I was quite skeptical on how (or if) these would work in our room.. The cost of the other speakers these would join was well over $40,000 and I was having a hard time believing these would actually perform adequately as ceiling Atmos speakers in our theater ..... but I ordered them despite my concerns. I mean, 4 of these for $500 ...shipped? The two primary concerns I had were: (1) frequency response at the listening position and (2) power handling given the efficiency of these were lower than the other speakers in the room ... and I often play the system at or above reference. I was not interested in installing 4 of these and them blowing them up and have to worry about replacing them (and the holes they would leave in our ceiling). All worry was for naught. The frequency response at the listening position was spot on. The sloped shape of the driver and the ability to aim the tweeter worked perfectly. I first listened to these with music, and muted all other speakers in the room. I was startled on how great they sounded for music -- and I played them louder than I normally do for music to test their durability. As for how they worked in a 3D audio environment? PERFECTLY. I am still baffled on how, for $500 shipped, you can purchase four speakers of this capability. But, if you are looking for speakers to serve duty for Atmos/DTS:X/Auro, these worked far, far, far better than expected. And easily worked along side of speakers costing significantly more. Or if you just need some ceiling speakers for general use in your home, I can't imagine a better speaker at-- or way above - this kind of price point. And lastly, I will be having the very clever and thin profile magnetic grills painted to match our ceiling paint. Great speaker and VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. (But I still don't know how they provide this kind of quality at this kind of price !!!!!)

Just had 4 of these install for my atmos . Replacing my atmos enabled speakers and it's definitely night and day difference!! Don't let the low price fool you ! These speakers sound way better than others costing 2x-3x as much !!

First off besides the speakers themselves the customer service at RSL is awesome. Very personable and quick with responses. Shipping was fast and the price was very reasonable and a steal for what you get. The speakers seemed very solidly built and were a pretty simple install. I liked how the tweeters were angled so you could aim them at the listening position and the magnetic grilles were a good touch. Got 2 pairs of them working as overheads for my Atmos setup. They blend nicely with my Polk speakers and do a convincing job of adding dimension and layers to my movies. Great company and great product.

I installed four of this speakers in my hometheater ceiling for Atmos, they sound fantastic, very easy to install and specially if you need to rotate them to the right angle for your listening position. The sound is so rich and clear. I'm so happy with them, that two day after I installed them I ordered one speedwoofer 10s. Costumer service is excellent too, I spoke to Joe twice he and answered all my questions. I will buy from RSL again. Thanks Joe (good job)

This is my very first RSL speaker purchase. Amazing! Wow! These are the words to describe the C34E in ceiling speakers. The sound is truly remarkable. I was blown away the instant I connected them. I am using them as the surround channel in home theater and the movie comes to life. These speakers rival other speakers that are double or even triple the price. Please note: although super straightforward to install, be careful not to over tighten the screws as they will break. Cut your template hole on the inside line and you'll be good to go. I'm actually excited and intrigued to try the CG line of speakers. Great job RSL you have a new customer.

Wow! This system is sick. Small footprint but the sound envelops you and is so rich from highs to lows. The sound only gets better with time as the speakers "break in". Unbelievable performance for just over the price point of a decent sound bar. Absolutely no comparison for $ per performance. Not even in the same galaxy. BTW...This all comes with old school and real customer service from the owners. Don't be surprised when Howard drops his frank and almost immediate feeedback and help. Great purchase and even greater company! I am running the Cg4/CG24 in the front, the C34E's for rears, and the speedwoofer 10s with a Denon x2300w. A real game changer for music and movie night. No cops called for the noise yet..ha ha!

I got a new amp and was listening to my new C34's in stereo mode with the subwoofer. Just two speakers and the subwoofer. I had on Appalachian Spring. It was phenomenal. I felt like I was back in college performing it.

Everyone.. these are the real deal and seriously sound just as good music-wise as small bookshelf speakers. I am a music buff so not saying that lightly. For Atmos effects, they are great with their adjustable tweeter and angled mid-woofers. But don't be afraid to crank them with your front stage for multi-channel music. The speakers have solid punch and also good clarity. They can handle any music, I've played primarily classic rock testing my 1st pair. Liked them so much, 2nd pair has been ordered to complete my new 5.1.4 set-up. Plus with free shipping both ways & 30 day trial they are risk free. Give them a test spin like I did and you'll see what i mean!! enjoy

Now for the speaker (C34E) performance. I'm sitting here listening to them by themselves in stereo, and I couldn't be happier. You were right, get them into the ceiling and the low end performance improves dramatically. I don't have the sub on, and they still sound great. Don't feel like I'm missing much low frequency at all. And the highs and mids sound really sweet! Very pleased! I think you have a winner. Can't wait until the second pair arrive.

I've been using these speakers for Atmos & DTSX duty and they sound great. I was looking for something that sounded good and matched my Wharfedale Jades and these did the trick without spending crazy money. I wouldn't hesitate to buy these or any other Great RSL Speakers. I also had a issue and when I called RSL on the phone I connected directly to a person(no machine) and my problem was taking care instantly. Great customer service.

I am utilizing six (6) C34E speakers in ceiling clouds for Dolby Atmos duty; however, as the theater is under construction, I find myself listening to music through these awesome speakers. The sound is absolutely amazing! I will, however, do more than just talk about it. I shot some pics and videos of the sound...links are below. Bass is great, and RSL was great about letting me know how large the enclosure needed to be to hit 80Hz in my room.

I love these ceiling speakers as my 7.1 surrounds, and they match well with my front CG24’s sonically. I also love the magnetic grille which is much easier to attach and remove than the old style of ceiling speakers with the plastic ring around them.

Don't be fooled by the price, I was skeptical about the price, when other brands are more than double or even more, this speaker has blown my perception off, detailed and crisp sounds of rain fall in the Avatar Atmos version, has taken my breath away. Glad I bought these and great Cust Serv.

A set of these were added to existing RSL bookshelfs and center channel. They installed easily (according to the installer) and look like they're part of the ceiling. They sound wonderful; smooth, unobtrusive, with a nice sense of rear surround to enhance the listening experience. They blend so well that they don't really make their presence known until you actively listen for them (then you notice how they complete the package).
