I would advise you to not use in-wall or in-ceiling speakers where you want good sound quality, because you won't get much for your money.
In my experience, a $200 in-wall (in-ceiling) speaker will give you about the same sound quality as a conventional cabinet speaker that costs $60-80. which is not very good.
In addition to that, if you are going to move in a few years you can take conventional speakers with you, and not waste a LOT of money and time buying and installing speakers that you will not keep. Every cent you spend will be wasted.
The speakers you "leave behind' mounted in the walls may also be regarded as an unwanted eyesore by the next tenant or buyer.
Perhaps you should consider conventional speakers with mounting brackets. That way you can remove them when you move and just patch a couple of screw holes.
NHT has some nice speakers that are made for mounting with brackets, such as the NHT Super-Zero 2.0, which is only $99 each.
There are many others, including the Polk Atrium 4 speakers.
