Bottom Line:   
I was very hesitant to use in ceiling speakers, but the size of my room demanded some sort of more elegant solution for the surrounds. I had visions of resonances and vibrating ductwork etc. Just didn' t want to deal with the potential built in problems.

But I had to try it, so I cut the holes and mounted the speakers...and the sound is AWESOME! Way better than I even need for the surround channels (BTW, my impressions are based on direct hookup to left and right channels). No resonances (the dealer gave me some foam to dampen the cavities), no vibrations, just great sound. Look fantastic, but mostly just blend in with the decor.

Although the CCM65 would probably have been adequate, I highly recommend the CCM80. They are capable enough to be wasted on surround use, but with a good DTS soundtrack do a wonderful job. Changed my mind about in wall/ceiling speakers completely.
