If you went with a different, non matching center...well, you just don't know if it is going to sound okay or not and really, you are trading one problem for another, IMHO. I had a mismatchd center for about 6 months...thought it sounded okay UNTIL I bought the correct center and man, I just didn't know what I was missed. There is just no way of know what other model/brand centers will sound with your fluance...
I agree, the towers are pretty far apart...otherwise you might get away ditching the center and running phatom for awhile. Probably not possible at that distance.
