Matching wall-mount speakers for Mission 753s and 75C

Can anyone recommend some wall-mountable surround speakers to pair with my Mission 753s and 75C? I'm moving into a new house and putting in Atmos 5.1.4. I currently have an old Onkyo HTIB 7.1 set that has served me well, but I'm taking the opportunity to upgrade my system. Fortunately, my dad is a stereophile, and is giving me his old Mission 753s. I was also lucky enough to find a Mission 75C on eBay. My problem is now finding some wall-mountable surround speakers to match. From what I can tell, Missions (except the new M3 compact series) are only designed for floorstand or bookshelf. If it matters, I'm likely headed towards Polk MC80s for the in-ceiling and an Onkyo TX-NR1030 AVR. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks!

Polk OWM 3 is often used as an inexpensive surround solution.

The 751 was a bookshelf version of the 753 – same tweeter, which is important for timbre matching the fronts and surrounds. See if you can snag a pair on ebay. There may be other compatible models as well – you’re looking for one with the same tweeter as the 753, and if possible the same woofer, or perhaps a smaller version of the same woofer.

"A nice mid-fi system," according to an audiophile acquaintance.
