Surround replacement ideas

Good evening. I am looking to replace my current surround speakers with some in walls. My position is rather high, about 8' from the floor due to the walkway from the foyer into the living room. The room is 17' wide. I was thinking about using Klipsch CDT-5650-C's since I can pivot the woofer and tweeter. I am also planning on replacing my Boston VR2's with PRO-250RPW LCR's. Any other suggestions or thoughts would be great.

Since I am not a fan of any in wall speakers, I got another suggestion, how about these;

They can be mounted in many different way, including ceiling mount.

Thanks Darth,
I have looked at those. My wife... doesn't like the look of the speakers on the wall/floor. That being said, I am in process of building my 7.2.4 theater in the basement so I'm willing to sacrifice a little upstairs. What do you dislike about in wall speakers?

For me, everything is sound quality. Just a quick look at my Theater link, will show how obsess I am into this hobby;
The Chimaera theater

Speakers mounted on a wall, instead of in wall. Give better options for fine tuning, as angles to your MLP.
I also got a 7.2.4 system, but since you are here to learn. While not important, since I knew and others know what you meant.
I say 7.1.4 (two subs), since there is only one sound track when it come to bass in any type of recording.
While it is the proper way to say-it, many got confuse. The reason of saying 7.2.4 is so popular
