I wouldn't trust that the impedance on PE's website is the same as your speakers. Do you have access to a multimeter? And are the part numbers the same on all 64 drivers?

this project has been put on the back burner for far too long, now its time to try and get my project on and in the wall.

I am going to purchase a 7.1 reciever first, any thoughts? im not looking for super duper top of the line, just something middle of the road that will do what it needs to do.

front R and L speakers as well as center will be in the wall, side R and side L will be mounted in the ceiling, as for the rear speakers I was thinking of putting them in the ceiling also or I can put them just as easy into the rear wall. so would it sound better in the rear with speakers in the ceiling facing down to the floor or in the rear wall facing twards the front speakers? will the speakers in the rear wall cause a bad sound effect?

You can try the Totem Pole speaker made by Jean Hiraga with these.

see: L'enceinte Totem (J.Hiraga) (in French but the pictures as always are self explaining)

He used 12 in a series/parallel connection. This is an open baffle of course and has a special form for the bass.
As your speaker looks a slightly bit smaller than the 4 inch Fostex you can of course increase the number . . . to 20, 32 if you like.

How do I test to see how many watts each speaker has? lets say I use 8 of these speakers and hook them up in parallel and series to make a single 8 ohm load, would it be the same concept for watts? 8 25W (for math simplicity) = 200W would it cut the watts 3/4 to 50W?

There is no standard for specifying power handling -- hence it is sort of meaningless.
