Economy In-Ceiling Speakers for Atmos

Hey folks,
I have a Klipsch Reference II 5.2 setup, and wanted to add four ceiling speakers to achieve an Atmos setup. Problem is, I don't have the budget to buy the Klipsch Reference in-ceiling speakers so am looking to more economical options. The two that I found are the Monoprice 8-inch Kevlar PID4104 (80W, Frequency Response 43 Hz - 20 kHz) and the Micca M-8C 8" (100W, Frequency Response: 40Hz - 20kHz). I'm leaning towards the later as it has the pivoting 1" dome tweeter, plus has very good reviews on Amazon.

Has anyone used either of these speakers, preferably in an atmos setup? I really appreciate your inputs.

Thanks.

I bought (4) DefTech DI5.5R's from BajaWaverunner on ebay for $99 each (refurbs). $250 each new. Can handle power and are coaxial wide dispersion speakers with pivoting tweeters.

I don't think pivoting tweeters are really needed if your doing just 4 ceilings speakers for Atoms. Should save you some money getting a fixed tweeter. Maybe if your doing ceiling speakers for the front main speakers I would recommend them, but for Atoms, the speakers are actually fairly close to the listening position. I think he more important factor is getting 2 or 4 identical speakers.
