Only if you want each cymbal to have a different tuning.

there is no "should"
It was as if someone shook up a 6 foot can of blood soda and suddenly popped the top.

I don't think it is necessary, panning position is probably more important.

You should buy a new speaker for each cymbal you have in your track and route each one to a separate speaker.
