You describe the listening area as all concrete correct? How big is the listening area? How far apart are the speakers from each other and the walls (perhaps you could provide a picture or diagram)? Also, can you try just hooking the speakers up with regular 16 gauge bare wire (just to see if something wonky happened with the strange config you described)? There's no reason your receiver shouldn't be able to power the CM9s. Also, they should sound great crossed over at 80 Hz.
