Ceiling surrounds to match Fusion-12

I built the DIY sound group Fusion-12 for my Cousin's home theater.

http://www.diysoundgroup.com/home-t...r-fusions.html

Was wondering what might be suggested for use as surrounds?
The only available location in this mid-sized but open room is in the 12' high ceiling.
So that's where the surrounds will be mounted. In the ceiling, but inside enclosures with whatever recommended volume is required.
This is for action/drama movies using a typical A/V receiver for power.

We had decided on Fusion 8's but those don't seem to be available any longer.
And my Cousin is ready to move forward with this build.
Any suggestions for matching rear speakers?
8" + CD is perfect, size-wise.

I had a discussion with Erich when I ordered my Fusion-15's and he suggested looking into the Volt-6's for surrounds.

That was probably based on my room size and seating distance though.

Thanks for the suggestion.
We were hoping to find something capable of playing "flat" down to 80hz.
Not sure the Volt 6 can handle that?

My cousin's room size is fairly large & open (the living room) with a 12' ceiling.
I'm thinking of actually trying to step up to 10" drivers if we can find the room.

If you can port them the Volt-8 is rated at 65hz - 20khz. I have a pair of the Volt-6 for surround duty in the family room, they are awesome. Would prefer the Volt-8 but they are just a bit too big for that room/layout.
