Can i use rear speakers at front of roon?

Hello - i have a sound touch 300 and two invisible 300 speakers.  These speakers state they are for "rear" use.  However, i do not have any good way of installing these in the rear.  Can i use these in the front of the room?

Thanks

Isn‘t the purpose of the VI300 to gain surround sound? So my guess is that it wouldn’t make too much sense to place them to the front!?

That would mess up the 5.1 Dispersion on your system. You would be better to drop the rear speakers and let the soundbar do the work on its own. The virtual surround on the ST300 bars work very well.
