You should probably do a search on what the opinions are of Bose. I assure you it is not good. I wouldn't spend another dime on anything Bose if I were you.

I would suggest using the Bose that you have as surrounds and buying other speakers for your front left, right, and center, and sub. There are plenty of other speakers that are a much better value than buying more Bose, and unless you must have tiny cube speakers, larger speakers will also sound much better, too. For instance, look into this Pioneer speaker series: http://www.audioholics.com/reviews/speakers/floorstanding/pioneer-sp-pk52fs

For the front sound stage, it's typically best to use three of the same speaker or the matching center channel from the manufacturer.
