Old klipsch in wall speakers IW100 & IW200

We recently purchased a house with some older klipsch in wall speakers in both the main floor living room as well as in the master bedroom. A set of IW200 that we’re in the living room and the smaller IW100 In the master bedroom. We have since tore the speakers out of the walls and sealed the holes since both sets no longer had the wires in the walls for them and they were not very mounted in ideal locations for our use. My question is how can I best use these speakers now that I have tested them and they work great. Make custom boxes for them and use them as surrounds? Use them as fronts and put my current speakers to my surrounds? I currently have a set of klipsch rp160m that I use for the fronts and a denon 1400x for the receiver. Are these old speakers worth anything performance and sound quality wise and is it worth the time and effort to either make new holes and run wires or make boxes for? Or am I better off just upgrading with what I have started?

Nice looking speakers. Aren’t in-wall speakers tuned to a typical wall cavity? On an 8’ ceiling that is about a 4 cubic foot space. I may be wrong in my logic, but I would definitely find a place for them.
