So I will be installing a set of in-ceiling speakers across two rooms only utilizing one speaker per room. How do I wire to the receiver to allow each speaker to independently carry stereo sound. If I wire one to left channel and the other to the right it may create inconsistent sound in each room.

If this is for background music, there are a couple of different ways you can go. First is if the room roughly has a left side or right side, such as for example when someone is at the primary seating position, then you can wire up the room that way. One side would get the left channel signal, and the other side get the right channel signal.

If the room doesn't have a distinct left or right side, such as in places where people would be moving around, it's entirely acceptable to run mono signals. I've seen in-ceiling speakers that have "stereo" tweeters, but they are so close together, I am not sure what additional benefit such a configuration brings.
