    Just how important is it to use the same brand of speaker for the surrounds as the Mains and Center?? I have Snells up front but their surrounds are all too big for the location I have picked out for the sides and rear. I have looked at Paradigm and B&W which will fit. Any thoughts??

    Thanks.

    It's a "nice to have" feature but isn't nearly as important as matching the mains & center. Be sure to calibrate with an SPL meter & set the distances correctly in your receiver when you add the surrounds...
