You should pick a center speaker of the same brand and same line, within the brand. Manufacturers match the speakers with the same components, so you get an even, and balanced sounding front stage.
If you mix and match, you'll likely notice uneven or unbalanced audio from your front speakers, due to different cabinet design, components, crossovers, drivers, etc...
You can, usually, get away with different surround speakers, but 99% of users on these forums will tell you that matching the front three is very critical.
