I bought the same setup last month and have them matched with the Acoustech H-100 sub crossed over at 120Hz. I really do like these speakers, great sound quality and very well built. I'm thinking of buying another pair to complete the 7.1. The only problem is that I don't have a 7.1 receiver but plan to upgrade soon.
I also asked the same question on this board and this is the response that I received from bsheldon, " I do have the CHT's and am using them with the mighty SVS PB12+/2. Again, I know the speakers and the sub are not necessarily on the same level. I originally bought the CHT's mainly as a temporary fill-in and it was real hard to pass them up for only $199, i added another pair to complete the 7.1 config. I bought them to use for my downstairs system. They are small and will fit in that smaller room. However, These babies really do a fine job filling my 4600 cubic foot room and are definatley not left behind by the mighty SVS. They really have a nice sound to them. I have no problems nor worries running them near reference levels for movies. I cross them at 100hz. I tested them in stereo using a real bass heavy cd to see just how loud those little babies can go. Rather impressive for such a tiny box. They are very well built--very heavy little boxes. Don't get me wrong, these do not put out the shear volume/room filling/ deafening sound as a large pair of florrstanders, but do an amazing job for what they are. The biggest thing I noticed when I swtiched to these was sound quality. Everything was much clear, MUCH better imaging and even better soundstage--as the music seems to come from the entire front of the room. My old system had dual 5 1/4's in the main, and these outperform them in everyway except if you consider ultimate output of muddy, bloated and boomy mid bass as a win for my old speakers. I power mine by the Denon AVR 3805 (120W x 7) and they handle the power just fine. They are much more efficient than my old speakers as well, allowing me to not use as much of power on tap to get similar output levels."
