Since you have already use a Polk speaker for the center channel, I would stick with the Polk for the tweeters, or something similar to match the timbre (sound characteristics) of the upper mid-range to high frequencies. Generally, any tweeter that uses a soft dome material is a good match to Polk. This way, the front stage, as they call it, has that warm sound.
Alpine has tweeters that are very close sounding to the Polk's. I would try to find a shop to demo them. You need a 1 inch tweeter for it to fit properly or anything larger will require some playing.
Best for now.
