Let me guess.

You have "Sony SS-MF600H Tower Speakers".

Good ear, huh?

never listened to it myself, but I've read here that it's a great bang for the buck sub.

Well since you already have the fronts I am surprised nobody has mentioned "timbre matching".

I'm not familiar with the Sony's, but do that if possible!

What is "Timbre Matching"

Timbre Matching is matching the tonal characteristics of the speakers.

This is most easily done by buying the same brand and series of speakers. Using the exact same speakers for all channels would be best, but not practical for some.

Like I said I am not familiar with the Sony's so I have no idea if they make a center and surrounds in the same series that would timbre match with the fronts, but that would produce the best sound since all speakers would be closely matched.

*This is for main and surround speakers only, matching the sub is not as important since bass is omni-directional!
