803D or 802D

Looking for some opinions. I currently have...

B&W CDM9NT Fronts
B&W CDM1NT Rears
Sunfire Signature EQ sub
Adcom GTP-870HD Receiver
Adcom GFA-7805 300x5 amplifier

This amp seems to have too much power for these smaller speakers. Primary use is Home Theater and Music. I was thinking of getting the 802D or 803D's with the HTM2D center, and also changing the sunfire sub to a JL Audio Fathom 113. I sit about 8- away from my speakers. Since it's a great room setup with 11 foot ceilings the room is fairly large. I no longer like having the rear speakers this close to me. I'm thinking about going with wall or ceiling mount rears now for my 5.1 setup. I'd like to hear some opinions and get some good advice on this. Thanks to all.

Another thing... about those rear speakers. If I did go with in ceiling speakers are there any that would sound good with the B&W's playing in 5-ch stereo mode with rock/pop music?
They just sound a little stressed at high outputs and I had to change out a few tweeters already. It's not that the woofers/mids are bottoming out or anything. My biggest complaint is that I keep burning tweets. I want something that I can play at high volumes, that sounds fantastic, and not damage.
