I'm thinking all 4 rear/surrounds speakers should be of the same model, shouldn't they be?
What about R800DS? But I'd get them re-wired to bipoles

You don't have to mount surround to ear level..
I mount my surround about 50 inch above ground or about 18 inch above the head..
How about mount Q100 a couple feet from the ceiling and aim it into listening position??

Would you position the rears at the same height or on stands at ear level?

What about a pair of Q100 (or R100) on stands for the rears and a pair of in-wall Ci130CS for the sides? Would they match?

Reverse the drivers that are out of phase, to in phase
