I posted this in another thread, but perhaps it is getting sort of lost.

I have a pair of JBL SVA 2100's. I really like the speakers and use them a lot in my music production. The reason for that being they seem to translate well what a PA will be playing back, but they are also very fine in Mastering Audio Quality. Perhaps a bit under-rated.

Anyways and more to the point:
I am trying to find a centre channel to work with these. I know JBL has a few newer models but they are all using a compression type driver instead of the softdome tweeter. Klipsch also comes to mind.

In the surround I have the possibility of B&O Beovox 5000 and would likely run them with Hypex amps, or again JBL newer models and or Klipsch.

SO in short anyone think this will be too out of balance?

I recently came across some deals on the Studio 520c, 580, etc line. Any experience on these models?

As posted elsewhere I know I will have to run them in a smaller mode, but the prices on these are pretty decent here, and perhaps I can use them for the surrounds instead?

Just an update, already posted in JBL User forum.

Got the 520C and 530 for the surrounds. Very good match indeed so just thought I would share if anyone else is in similar position.

I do have both fronts and backs set to small in the processor settings.

I never got a chance to try the LS line so I can't comment.
