Thiel HigherPlane 1.2 in-ceiling enclosed loudspeakers (8 available)
Price is for one speaker.


These have never been installed.  The grills have never been painted.  They have only been taken out of the boxes to test them.  They are essentially New Old Stock (NOS).
I am the original owner.  I purchased them as the finishing touches for a remodel.  My wife thought there were enough recessed lights, and didn’t want any more holes in the ceiling.  They have been stored in a guest bedroom closet ever since. 
6 original boxes and manuals.  (2 boxes/manuals were mistakenly tossed when testing them.)
Although they would technically qualify as a 10, I have rated them a 9 to be conservative.
From Thiel brochure:
 

 Second-generation, aluminum cabinet design eliminates unwanted vibration for improved sonic performance
The new surface-mount PowerPoint 1.2, in-wall PowerPlane 1.2, and in-ceiling HigherPlane 1.2 are second-generation designs of the original, award-winning PowerPoint, PowerPlane, and HigherPlane. Their cast aluminum cabinets’ non-resonant walls eliminate unwanted vibration and the cabinet’s special shape adds rigidity and helps absorb internal energy by reducing unwanted reflections to significantly improve both clarity and dynamics.
“The new PowerPoint 1.2, PowerPlane 1.2, and HigherPlane 1.2 bring a new level of performance to a category that usually compromises sonic performance for usability,” says THIEL president Kathy Gornik. “These versatile models use the same high performance drivers we design and build for our award-winning line of floor-standing and shelf speakers.”
The two-way PowerPoint 1.2, PowerPlane 1.2, and HigherPlane 1.2’s coaxial/coplanar 6.5-inch woofer and 1-inch dome tweeter use THIEL’s innovative short coil/long gap motor system for extremely low distortion and both use aluminum diaphragms for outstanding tonal response. The tweeter is very similar to the one used in THIEL’s flagship model, the CS3.7.
“I’m especially pleased that these special application products provide complete time and phase coherence for more realistic sound reproduction,” says product designer Jim Thiel. Phase and time coherence is achieved with phase-correct first-order crossovers and coincident driver mounting.
“The PowerPoint 1.2, PowerPlane 1.2, and HigherPlane 1.2 bring a new level of performance to a speaker category that usually compromises sonic performance for usability.”
The HigherPlane 1.2 is an in-ceiling version of the in-wall PowerPlane 1.2. In addition to a new aluminum cabinet, the HigherPlane uses the same high performance time and phase correct coaxial driver and crossover design as the PowerPlane to offer a much higher level of resolution and realism than found in conventional in-ceiling loudspeakers. The HigherPlane’s 11-inch diameter, paintable, aluminum baffle and grille disappear into the ceiling, leaving only the excellent sounds from your favorite music or movies.

Specifications include a frequency response of ±3 dB from 75 Hz to 20 kHz, a sensitivity of 89 dB @ 2.8 V-1m, phase response within ±10° of minimum, and a 4 ohm nominal impedance. Cabinet dimensions are 11” diameter front and a depth of 6.75”, weighing 8 pounds.
