Can old ceiling speakers be used as Atmos Fronts?

Hello group,

There’s some old KLH Ceiling speakers in this house I bought. Rather than ripping them from their roots and re drywalling, I have left them up as an eye sore with my KEF speakers right below. Two little letters, what a difference...

My question to this group is whether those would work as Atmos speakers? My Denon AVR has the ability to designate these as front Atmos, the wires are already run, so I ask you WHY NOT?

Any thoughts for or against?


Pic of them... Look away, I'm hideous!

Yes, sure.

You aren't going to be married to the choice, if they don't work out, get something else.
