Hi everyone!

We're going to be doing a kitchen renovation soon, and as part of that I'm going to put some speakers into the ceiling in the kitchen. Nothing too fancy, just stereo, and I just want to be able to listen to the radio while fixing food in the morning and have music play at parties and such. Of course I'd like for them to sound as good as I can make them sound, but don't want to spend too much on them either (these aren't going to be for my critical listening or anything, just background music/npr listening).

So to that end I've been looking at the Monoprice in ceiling speakers as I've generally had pretty good experienc with Monoprice stuff in the past. I'm looking particularly their 8" models, though I'm open to others if people recommend them.

The cheaper of the two 8" models is this one: http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=108&cp_id=10837&cs_id=1083703&p_id=4104&seq=1&format=2 They recommend pairing those with an enclosure, (http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=108&cp_id=10837&cs_id=1083707&p_id=11942&seq=1&format=2) though I'd love to hear from anyone who's maybe tried those enclosures, and whether they make a difference or not

The more expensive of the two 8" models is this one: http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=109&cp_id=10837&cs_id=1083703&p_id=4929&seq=1&format=2 though I'm not sure how much better they'd really sound compared to the less expensive ones.

Any help would be most appreciated! I"m of course open to other suggestions for in ceiling speakers but nothing too expensive, I'd probably but an upper ceiling of $200/pair on them (though I'd prefer to be well under that if I can help it).
