Two issues: 1) Make sure to get the bass mangement and level set-up properly. I'd recommend crossing the F2s over at 60-80Hz, but your quintets should be crossed over higher, at least 120Hz. Hopefully your AVR give you this flexability, as some have a fixed cross-over for all speakers. Also since the F2s are more efficient, make sure to calibrate the sound levels by dropping the signel to the F2s. Otherwise you will not hear dialog and surround effects as clearly. This leads me to:
2) Timbre matching for the center channel. the little Quintet CC won't be a perfect match for the F2s. I would highly recommend picking up a C2 center channel as well.
So, the F2s will be a big improvement alone for music, but to round out the hometheater experience, you should get the right center to to complement them. Also, you can use the extra speakers for rear surrounds for 7.1 if your AVR and room support this configuration.
