Yikes!! I'm a big fan of the CM9's. I currently own two pair of PolkAudio RTiA9's, had I had the $$$, the CM9's would be in my camp.
Placement is an awesome suggestion. Power, definitely look into external power. My A9's, while not as "refined" as the CM's, are no slouch, but when I first got them home, was at first impressed, then led to remorse, the sound became bright, almost too bright. Solution? Placement and more power. I've upgraded my amps twice, and with each upgrade, it was like getting a new speaker.
The A9's have smoothed out with the addtion of power and have really been an awesome sounding speaker.
I would hope the CM's would also improve with more power.
