Of the speaker listed in this thread, mostly satellite speakers, the def tech sm350s are the closest thing to a full range speaker (at least, compared to the other systems). However, finding the matching center can be a challenge (clr2002). Been out of production for awhile...
There is a very good reason to match your front stage for a nice timbre match as sounds travel across the front stage. However, I would have no reservation using no matching speakers as surrounds...in fact, I am!
