"timbre matching" is the magic phrase for the front 3 speakers. Consider the wide soundstage created by the L-C-R speakers. As a sound or voice moves across the front three speakers, if the tweeters (and to some extent the midrange) speakers don't match, you may notice a shift in tone between speakers. It's not an ironclad rule, but the more the center differs from the L & R speaker, the greater the chance of a tone shift.
