Looking at hard at CMT-340 SE for LCR. I notice the Sierra 1 and 2, but I really like the look of the 340 and from reading it seems if you are running HT the 340 is an excellent choice. Room is 20x12 and I prefer higher volumes during action flicks. Also really liked the 340 look on stands, because stand will be a must for me.


Thanks.
I dont see a question but Im running a 5.2.4 Atmos setup with 3060 AVR, 340 LCR, 170 x 4 and 200 x 2. LV12r and Klipsch subs.

Very happy.

It was really just 340 vs Sierra (LCR) for HT use. I really like the idea of matching LCR and the cost of the 340, almost hard to believe how little they cost.

Sierra are overkill and a waste of money for ht use imo.

Yes, the CMT-340 SE's combination of accuracy, good sensitivity and high power handling means they're the pick for clean, dynamic sounding movies at higher volumes.

Thanks. I'm guessing you would just cross the 340's at 80hz and let the subs handle the rest?

The Outlaw 7140 would have no issue driving them.

Yep, at least 80Hz. Higher the better to take the high excursion low bass (= distortion) away from the woofers. With familiar bass-heavy content playing, nudge the crossovers up in steps until you can begin to readily localise the subs, then back the crossovers off one notch. Done! If your subs have a good lock your room, don't be surprised if you end up at around 120Hz.

At 90dB/1W/1m sensitivity and 8Ω nom. impedance, any mid-tier AVR will happily drive them to very loud levels at typical listening distances (105dBSPL peaks per channel @ 10ft with a 100W burst). A walk in the park for your Outlaw.
