For those of you with no attic and no way to hide wires for these, here's what I did. I bought a small hand circular saw and put a small(6 inch??) blade on it. I do have crown moulding so I hid most of the wire run behind that but there was no way to hide them from the wall to the speakers on the ceiling. I adjusted the depth of the blade to about 1/4" and cut a groove in the ceiling. I then tucked the wires into those cuts, spackled over the wires and painted it. Turned out great!
i do installations and running wires is not really as difficult as many people believe it to be. the tools are inexpensive, easy to find at any hardware store and easy to use. if you are really that scared of running wires in a ceiling, you can get flat speaker cable (Which can be painted over), this shows a little bit, it is not 100% hidden. or you can run the wire behind a piece of molding for any part of the run that is against a wall (Fewer holes that way), but be careful where you nail the molding. the "dado" method of gouging the sheet rock and embedding the wire in it is not used by professionals ever. that is a homeowner DIY method.

first thing to note is that you should be using in wall rated wire. they come as CL2 or CL3 rated. the tools you need are a hole saw (Large enough to get your wrist into), wood shims, long flexible drill bit and first tape or fish stick (I suggest the stick). to run the wire, cut a hole with the hole saw (Keep the hole for use later) then drill through the framing with the flexible bit. then run the wire using the fish stick until you get the to bay you need. once there you can run parallel inside the bay to run the opposite speaker. to patch the holes, put a shim behind the cut out hole and reattach it with 2 screws. then you only need to tape/sand/paint the outer edge of the hole.

helpful pro tip. if you have any type of recessed lighting it is very easy to remove the "can" and then you have access to that bay without cutting any holes. when done running the wires, pop it back in place. no cutting, taping, sanding or painting needed.
I imagine you've tried this already, but are you able to pull the cables out? If so, connect some 14 or 16 gauge cable to the ends and pull new wire through.

I have these speakers (8") and they're nice, definitely better than just having a hole in the ceiling.

My house came with speaker holes, but was wired with 22ga solid core copper wire.
There is no attic to rewire it.
So I'm thinking of just getting these Jamos, to fill in the holes. Or maybe just have the wires come out, and use wall ceiling wire strips or something?

Are these active speakers? Or do they need an Amp/receiver to work?

They are not self-powered so you need an external amp.

Trying to figure out if this will work well in drywall, can somebody explain the mounting bracket and if it will play nice with drywall?

They're in-ceiling speakers. They're designed to be mounted in drywall.

As the guy below you already said, they're made to be used with drywall.

You just need to find the studs and put an 8" or 6.5" hole between them. You place the speaker in the hole and then use a screwdriver and it twists out little arms that will tighten and hold the speaker in place. Super easy!

Why not just install them with the existing wiring and see how it sounds?

And then what do you do to wire it? Is that also super easy?
