Something like Bwaslo's recent design in the SEOS thread might work well since it is a 10" woofer and a 1200hz crossover. That should space the nulls very wide which is more important in a surround than in a LCR speaker.
I take your point as regards surrounds......I'll be using JBL 2123H's which are 10" drivers. They could match up well to the SEOS 12 with a Denovo 350.
What about height speakers? I want to use JBL 2206H's (12") because they closely match my 2226H LF main drivers......although I'm not sure how concerned I ought to be about this whole timbre matching thing...
JBL 2123's are a mid and I wouldn't run them very low. I've had lots and lots over the years - I used then in my PA and at home. Nice driver, I only sold them after I got my TD10M. My surrounds will use these and a 15" below (3 way).
I'd use the 2206 for the surrounds myself, especially if a 2 way. Not interested in heights myself, so unsure what to suggest, but if I were going to compromise somewhere, the heights would be it over the surrounds, ie surrounds more important.
