I want to connect my Sonos Arc (Center) with my pair of Sonos Play:5 (Front L+R) and a pair of Sonos One (Sourround L+R).

My Issue: the Sonos S2 can only connect 2 Sonos One (Sourround L+R) as sourroud speakers (and a Sub) but no additional Front Speakers.

What should I do?

This isn’t possible.  The Arc represents the upward, centre and front left & right speakers, via 11 speakers.  For a 5:1 set-up, you have the option of adding a Sub and rear surrounds only.
