I'm running 2 DV 64's as mains, a 62 CLRS center channel, and a BIC F12 subwoofer. I have two leftover Polk RTi4 speakers from our upstairs. Would the Polks be ok to use as surrounds with this setup, or am I sacrificing quite a bit with the different brands? Thoughts?

Speakers: Fronts- JBL 230, Center- JBL 235C, Surrounds: Fluance XLBP
Sub: PSA 15V
Processing: Onkyo 676
Video: BenQ 1080ST

unless you listen to a lot of multi-channel music matching surrounds is not as critical as matching L-C-R. try it, run a system calibration, listen and let your ears decide
