If I had Polk fronts, I would ask Polk (or Crutchfield) the best match. I would not tell them my budget. Some say surround matching (timbre) is not important, my experience is that it is.

Music, more music.

Yeah, getting speaker advice online is only so helpful since you really have to hear them yourself. That said, if you're like me and don't have the time or will to go to a shop and don't want to "audition" speakers (buy them, return them) either, then advice is helpful. I ended up with my Monitor Audio speakers (L/C/R) a few months ago based on advice on the speaker subforum and I'm happy with them. Also got a new sub based on advice here and very happy with that too.
