Kenneth, I’d go with what you have and placed as you said. The Yamaha a/v amp has YPAO and that will give you a basic starting point to upgrade pairs of speakers but I think you may be surprised how well what you have sounds.
Depending on how the system sounds and you do decide to swap out I would first look at the surrounds and get bipole/dipole (firing forward and backwards). What you have are probably acceptable yet having diffuse surrounds really does change the sound perception. I would then look at a good center – but the Klipsch may have a good frequency range. You’ll have to experiment.
A lot also depends on how big a room cubic capacity you have: 3,000 cubic feed as an arbitrary medium with smaller being ‘small’ and larger ‘larger’. Having too hefty speakers in a small room means its overkill (and over-expensive). The amp you bought is good to surprisingly larger rooms but linking it to speakers that because of room size cannot work in their best range is not good.
Personally I would replace (if that’s what you decide) with matched pairs and slowly incorporate other pairs as wallet allows.
