How significant is the difference between the Paradigm cc-170 and the cc-370? Is it worth the extra money for this very important channel speaker, or is the cc-170 just fine?

Hi Dean,
I had the CC-170 for about 6 months and it worked just fine with my Monitor 7's. I just changed it to the CC-370, because it matched better with my mains (same drivers) There was a subtle difference but hardly noticeable between the two. Now only to confuse you more, Paradigm has brought out the CC-270 (so many choices ;) ), it's one model up from the CC-170. The only difference between the 170 and 270 is the driver size, 170-5 1/2"driver and 270 - 6 1/2". Check out the website.Link Removed

If you are running Atoms in the front, I would go with the CC-170. They both have the exact same drivers, with the CC have one extra 5 1/4in driver. If you have anything from the Monitor line, I would go with the 370.

I used to have Monitor 5s and ran them with a CC-170 without any problems. I'd actually started out with the intention of going with a 370, but after a/b-ing the two at my dealer, I decided that the difference between the two was negligible. I've since upgraded from the Monitor 5s, but continued using my CC170. Great little speaker!

Same here. Using a 170 with Mini Monitors and no issues. The main difference is in the tweeters, though the mid-bass driver is also larger and a different material since it is from the Monitor line vs the Performance line. The 370 has better sound overall, but I didn't feel it necessary to have the 370 either.

While the above posters are happy with their set ups it is best to match your center channel with your mains.

Atoms and Titans - 170 or 270

Monitor Series - 370

Studio Series - Studio Center
