Surrounds only do a lousy 5-10% of the output. The center does 70-80% ... although in your case, with the fronts being so close together you don't really need a center to be honest.
You'd be fine with 2 of those Ascends in front, and then get 4 of the NHT SuperZeros, using 2 for surrounds and 2 for downfiring Atmos.
Just get an RSL Speedwoofer 10S for the sub and you'll be all set, plus under budget.
The Polk T15 is horrendous, I don't blame for wanting to toss them.
~ Are you a "geek hobbyist" obsessed with squeezing out that last 5-10% improvement? The economy will thank you...especially the Chinese one. Or are you more of a get-set-and-forget "casual user" who simply wants to increase your enjoyment of movies, TV and gaming? Relax, HT isn't rocket science, nor does it have to cost an arm and a leg---especially if you ignore the aforementioned vocal minority. And remember to smile...it's just a silly hobby, after all. :)
