    I am upgrading my older 5.1 system to hopefully a 5.1.4 or 7.1.4 Due to my room layout, the current rear surround speakers in the 5.1 layout are Martin Logan Helos 100 ceiling speakers directed down to the seats instead of the traditional surround speakers at ear level. My plan is to use the current rear ceiling speakers as the rear hight speaker, add 2 or 4 ear level surround speakers, and then for the front hight speakers use the upward firing atmos (Klipsch). So my question- is it ok to have a mix of upward firing front height speakers with the rear height speakers being in the ceiling? Just with my layout, I can't add front height ceiling speakers. So for the 4 height speakers ok to have a mix of upward firing and ceiling or should they be one set or the other (all upward firing or all ceiling?) Thanks
