My system: 701 series I(front), VCS-10(center), 501 series V(surround), Freestyle(surround back). No other speaker, other than BOSE, will sound like BOSE. Try the VCS-10. If you're not happy with it, return it.
well most people here would say Bose speakers wouldnt work good with anything. But seriously, Bose's center wouldn't work very good with anything besides their jewel cubes, it sports two (or is it 4?) 2" drivers. They aren't the same drivers used with the 701's, I can almost gaurantee it won't go low enough to reach your subwoofers crossover point, and it certainly won't go high enough because it has no tweeter. You'd be better off without any center than with the Bose (IMO).
