    Front L, R
    Polk Audio TC620i Round 2-Way In-Ceiling Speaker

    Center
    Pioneer 2-Way In-Wall Center Channel Speaker w/ Dual 4.5" Woofers, S-IW60T

    Rear L,R
    Polk Audio RC60i Round 2-Way In-Ceiling Speaker

    My receiver is Panasonic SA-XR55S Home Theater Receiver. Any suggestions are highly appreciated, thanks

    Completely different sonic signature. Unless you want to change all of the other speakers, ditch it...

    All the speakers should be timbre matched.

    Where's the .1? If you're planning on getting a traditional sub, the Polk PSW10 is an impressive deal @ $109 shipped from Amazon. I "downgraded" from the PSW110 after being unimpressed and returned a Dayton Sub-100 to PartsExpress that I couldn't find a happy place for. The 110 might dig a little deeper, but the 10 is much faster with music imho. After a half hour spent bass-crawling I couldn't be happier. At its current price nothing touches it.
    Currently listening to:

    Marantz SR5004
    Sony BDP-S370
    Apple TV V2
    Audio Technica AT-LP120
    Mirage CMD-5 x 5
    Bic H-100
