Height/Atmos speaker size

Team,
I have a 7.1 setup. Thinking of going 5.1.4. I have a set of polk monitor 30 and monitor 40's I am thinking of using as the height/atmos speakers.
Was thinking putting the 30's in the front, 40's in the rear.
Would there be any more reason to put the larger 40's in the front? Should I pickup another set of 30's so they are balanced?

I had 4 Monitor 40's as my Atmos speakers for a while - they did pretty well though I've since replaced them with four DIY Sound Group Volt 6's which have been quite a bit better. I don't think you'd have a lot of trouble with mixing the two pairs - if this is your first Atmos system you'll love it. Personally I would put the 40's in front but with the types of sound that comes from Atmos channels it probably won't matter too much.

Roll Tide.
