In ceiling studio monitor (closed back)

Im looking for a pair of passive ceiling speakers that are going to be used in a piano room for playback and some critical listening. I'd prefer a closed back design with an aimable tweeter. Monitor audio comes to mind as well as JBL. I'm looking for something under $500 for the pair. I have the bass covered with dual subs. Power coming from a 20xx yamaha. Any suggestions?

iLoud

iLoud is probably the best bang for the buck for under $500.

Edit: sorry, I re-read your post and noticed that you probably meant passive speakers. When I saw "studio" monitors, I just assumed powered active speakers! Regardless, for accuracy and monitoring, I still highly recommend iLoud.

Yes, I did mean passive, I'll add that to my OP.
