Home Theatre in-ceiling speakers?
I used NXT (not NHT) for my surrounds in ceiling and in wall that work really nice and were very inexpensive for a 8 inch three way. Purchased them on the internet, prices do vary but I held out and purchased them for under 100 for each pair.

Have measured the standing OHMs of the Abbys and they are good at 7ohms. NO shorts. These speakers do work on my Solid State Equipment with no problems.
