RE: If that's the case....

That's why I like the dealers I go to - they knew this decades ago and set-up the rooms properly. You want to listen to different speakers - they take the ones in the room out and bring in the next pair. Not flip a selector switch. But let's be practical here - people have home theater and in theory the front left and right speakers (and or the sub) will get the center channel and rear speakers vibrating.

And indeed, with most speakers rather poorly pair matched - the left speaker could make the right speaker vibrate out of step as well.

Walking into most showrooms or audio shows the first thing you do is stand against a wall and clap your hands - if you hear ANY kind of an echo - the room sucks. (Clap Echo test). No echo and the room is probably decent enough without an immediate need for room treatments (perhaps none).
