Default Will these go together?

Hello all,

I have purchased two martin logan motion 10 towers and a definitive technology mythos 3 center channel speaker. Will these go well together in a 5.1 surround system?

I have a YAMAHA RX-V371 receiver and a Polk PSW111 subwoofer.

I got all the above for $750(towers,center,receiver and Sub) brand new.

I still need to get the rear satellites. If you think all the above goes well together Please suggest me some rear staellite speakers?

PS: I live in a 1BR apartment.

Thanks,

G.

Typically, and you will hear it over and over, the 3 front speakers should be timbre matched, meaning they should be all from the same maker as the materials used in the cabinets are the same and it allows for smooth transition in movie sound reproduction. This is why speaker company began making speaker "family's" So ther is even acoustics across the front, and the center carries most of the information. and shares it with left right sides.

As stated above I would return the center and replace it with a martin Logan to match.

Most people will also stick to the same brand or model # but as the sides and rears are used mostly for ambient effects and not the soundstage it is not nearly as crucial.
