I once ran a setup consisting of 2 x CB-20s, 1 x CC-5 and 2 x CB-5s. I quickly upgraded the center to a CC-10 afterwards which was much better. The whole series is rather bright so maybe that's why you find them lacking in bass. The CB-20s were alright bass-wise although I always used a sub to complement the setup (first an Energy ESW-C8 which is not worth the cost, and afterwards an SVS SB12-NSD). At the time I had a Pioneer 1020 running it.
I since sold the whole setup to a friend, and it's still running fine. The only caveat being finish: it seems that in a varying humidity environment, the finish has a tendency to peel away and fade a bit. They're not as pretty as they once were.
Nonetheless, I'm now in the process of building a secondary setup for a kid's playroom / parent's training room. The setup is all-new, with 4 x CB-10 and a CC-10. A PSA XS15se subwoofer will add the needed oomph. An Onkyo 818 will provide the wattage to the speakers and the signal to the sub. I've yet to test the setup though, but in Canada, owing to deep discounts found at FutureShop, it's pretty hard to find a better deal than Energy's C-series.
