4 HB1-MK2 in front?

Hi there, I have a dilemma.

Right now I have a standard 5.1 with a 15 inch sub, all HSU Research of course.

We're in the process of finishing our basement and I wanted to add some dolby atmos in the ceiling to expand the surround experience.

During this planning stage we decided it might be better to turn the rear surrounds into ceiling speakers as well. The room layout provides a better aesthetic going this route which would make my wife happy.

The problem is, if I do this that means I have two HB1's currently used for the rear that I have no "use" for.

Can I get some advice on the best possible solution to this? Can I add them to the front for stronger sound or can you recommend an alternative solution?

Thank you in advance.

If you're doing Atmos, why don't you want four HB-1s on the ceiling? That way you don't have any unused speakers, and using four speakers for the height channels is superior to any arrangement using only two -- or so I've been reading. I will add that I've contemplated doing something like this myself, but HB-1s seem to me to be quite heavy for mounting on the ceiling.
