Do you all think the 8" in ceiling speakers would serve well in the ceiling as the 2 side rears? I plan to have 2 of the 8" as my rear left/right, but want 7.1 and the room doesn't allow for them to actually be on the side, so I was thinking of putting them in the ceiling on the sides...?
Secondly, I have been lurking on here for help with multi-room speakers throughout the house, not intended for high quality music but more back ground music and just low leveled music to play in other rooms of the house when working in other rooms...so I've been reading about these MonoPrice speakers, 6 1/2" or 8".
Do these speakers work with wall volume controls? Can I get just any volume controls that I find for a good price or does it have to be a certain brand?
Also, what kind of speaker wire would you suggest for the multi-room speakers? I'd assume my surround speakers would need a better quality?
I know NOTHING about speaker selectors, I want/need one that will give me at least 8 pair selection, but don't know what is good/bad in brands/features etc...I don't want to spend a lot, and found some on amazon all under $100, but not sure if they have the needed features.
I will be setting up the selector to the Zone 2 of a Denon 2309ci...if that helps any?
Like whats the big difference in these two of the same maker? One is Dual Source and one isnt? I guess I just need one source, which is my Zone 2?

And lastly, since I think installing all this speakers, speaker wire, volume controls, and network cables, is above my skill level, who should I look up in my local phone book for the install?
An electrician? A geek squad? I plan to have all the hardware purchased, just need the installer...where do I find one?
