*Recommended for Dolby Atmos * SpeakerCraft Profile AIM8 Wide THREE
Although Dolby is not a manufacturer of physical speaker products, overhead (or in-ceiling) speakers are fundamental to a home cinema system configured to reproduce the Atmos surround sound format, and so we have created a section of speakers that give good results when used for this application.
In-depth information can be gained from Dolby's website here
You can also read a concise summary on our blog post here
If installing two speakers as Atmos channels then the speakers should be almost directly overhead and in this case any ceiling speaker with a reasonable sound dispersion can be used. However if this cannot be achieved, or if you are installing four Atmos speakers, then speakers with wide dispersion characteristics should be installed and it is these models which are featured here.

Ceiling speakers have become a favourite choice for customers interested in home cinema or multi-room installations.
Speakercraft have satisfied demand with a variety of different models. The Aim Wide was originally designed to create a diffused rear sound field for a home cinema. But it has become clear that customers are also interested in using this speaker in high-performance multi-room audio installations.
Although the Aim Wide has the same footprint and bass drivers as the Aim 8, the rest of the speaker is a big departure from that familiar format. The unique dual mid-tweeter module is mounted directly over the bass driver. With two midrange drivers and two tweeters facing 70 degrees off-axis from each other, the result is an ultra-wide dispersion of great sound quality.
