    Hey guys, I was going to buy a Paradigm CC-170 which sonically matches everything in the performance line.

    I've decided to go with the CC-270 which isn't yet on the Paradigm website.

    Anyone know which speakers in the line that it will match with?

    The salesman did mention the Mini's but I didn't ask any further. Also I'm not sure which size tweeter it uses.

    Thanks!

    Jeffrey, I would give Paradigm a call directly and see what they had to say.

    There is no CC-270. There is a 70, 170 and 370. Assuming you are talking about the CC-370, it mates with Paradigm's Monitor line. The 370 uses a 1" titanium tweeter with two 6-1/2" poly mids. The Mini monitor is a perfect match for this center. The 170 matches to the performance series, which have a 3/4" tweeter that is a slightly different material, but sounds quite similar to the Monitor line. The Performance series also use butylene mids.

    No there is a CC-270. I'm in Ontario at a local dealer and they have the 170, 270, and then 370.

    $239 for the 170

    $299 for the 270

    didn't ask about the 370.

    The salesman wrote the prices down on a card for me. The woofers are different from the 170 to the 270.

    Did the 170 have 6 1/2 inch drivers or 5 1/4? I thought I remember the 70 having 4" and the 170 only had 5 1/5. Maybe the 270 has the 6 1/2" woofers from the titan.

    That's it and more! I'm sure the woofers are bigger and they are of a different material, not the like the cc-370 but not cheap looking like the CC-170.

    The salesman said they would sound very similar (170-270) but the 170 would lose a little bottom end.

    They are the same size cabinet as well.

    Paradigm has some closely spaced prices on some models, makes you want to keep going up! I'm picking between these two.
