Quick Question on Front Height Speakers

I currently have 5.2 setup with my onkyo 929....I want to try and add front height speakers to my setup.

Right now I have a system with Focal chorus speakers

Fronts - 836v
Center 800cc
rears- 705v I think or maybe 805...dont remember

I also have extra focal speakers from a previous setup. Those are 2 - 826v towers and 4 714v towers.

I guess I would want to use the 705v bookshelves as the front heights and could I do a pair of the 714v towers as my new rear speakers? i would have to stand them on something to get at the right height (rears).

OR should I keep my bookshelves as rears and just buy another set for the front heights?

any ideas? thanks

Bookshelves for heights are the way to go. I'd get another pair if I was you.

Why not start with what you have and you can always upgrade later if it doesn't meet your needs?
