i just got my paradigm mini monitor and cc-270, still waiting for my monitor 7 to arrive. once i put the center on top of my 27" wega, the center speaker is huge, the TV is like wearing a big black ugly hat. still need to buy calibration disk (already got radio shack SPL meter) and calibrate with my VSX-D711 reciever. dear experts: will these speakers be driving my puny reciever too hard? after countless reading on this forum, i am affraid of clipping also. i have to turn the volume up to 50 (the scale is 95-0) in order to hear actors talking. i would hear better at 40 but if there is an explosion than it would be too loud. and since the speakers is still new i don't want to drive them hard. i guess i need break in first. note: this is a 3 ch setup on my reciever on PLII mode. when listen to music on stereo mode 60 would be good enough. is there anything i am missing that i have to have 50 vs 60 volume to hear almost the same dB? one more thing is the sub, what's the best combo for these speakers? rava sub? or hsu vft-2? note: the sub usage is only HT/movie for now. until i get a SACD then that's a difference scenario.
