Yes and no, your AVR will adjust the balance, the mix of horn speakers with coventional.......? Im not surprised the Klipsch house sound didn't work with the JBL house sound, apples to oranges. Again, using some common sense in the pairing, for video matching speakers isn't as important as for music reproduction. I'm currently running Infinity mains and sub with Canton center and rear channel speakers to good effect. Both are sealed cabinets with a similar design goal of a flat frequency response so mate well together.
