Any Paradigm CC290 owners?
I would like your opinion on the 290. I not so sure about the 4.5 inch midrange.
I have Monitor 7's V3 with a sub. Currently using an LCR450 as a center. The 450 is a two way with an aluminum tweeter and two 6.5 inch mid/woofers in a sealed cabinet. Not a timbre match.
The 290 is a timbre match.
I know you should go with a timbre match across the front. The 290 is a 3 way with 4 drivers. I like the wide presentation of the 450. Concerned about the 290 not being as wide with the 4.5 inch mid.
