Third party speakers/Connect as surround rears

I currently have a Beam as well as a Connect (not Connect Amp) in my family room. The Connect is hard-wired to a router and connected to receiver feeding two third-party floor speakers (located behind couch). Can I use these third-party speakers as rears in a surround setup? Or will latency or other technical issues prevent this?

Thanks, I’m considering getting the Sub while it’s on sale. Would be more tempting if I could be assured it would complete a surround system without having to buy more Ones.

No, unfortunately  the CONNECT can not drive powered surrounds. There is no function in the Sonos software to use the CONNECT in such a fashion, sorry.
