Placing 2nd gen pro

I have a network currently made up of 4 eeros, all first generation. The majority (80%) of the connections go through the eero in my living room. The gateway eero connected to my modem sees basically zero connections ever, as it is in a part of the house that isn’t frequented regularly. 

I have just bought a 2nd generation pro. If I want to optimize my connections and speed should I place the 2nd gen eero in my living room where most of the devices that connect are, or should I replace the gateway with it?

Thanks for your advice!
