First, if this is for TV audio, you really don't want in-ceiling speakers for the front L/C/R channels. Surrounds are fine.
Second, if this is for TV audio, you want 5 speakers, not 4.
Cheapest / easiest solution is to remotely locate an AVR to run the system (any nearby closet or cabinet?), and use a simple $20 IR repeater for remote control. You say there's no room for an amp (AVR), but what about the source gear (set-top box, BD player, etc.)?
The AVR will get you the correct outputs, plus switching among sources and avoids the hassles of dealing with audio out from the TV.
