If you listen carefully each spk with sane source & amp,you can get a lot of difference in sound .With this if you select diff spk as frt & centre ,you compramise with true effect.You can still enjoy the mov,but the details can change.

Well I will put in this way-
Spk from same company & family shld be used for frnt & centre, surr,sub can be different.

ie MS avant series may not match with MS messo series.

If your polks are from same family,go ahead.

If your AVR has the option of Speaker level calibration then you can nullify the differences arising out of the different speakers. This feature helps to match the acoustic level between speakers of different comapny/size/type.

However I am not sure of what extent it helps as i ve never tried.
