Hi ice Cube.
When I first got my CM9, even after break in, I also was not happy with them, got frustrated, and immediately wanted to upgrade.
My dealer told me to work on the placement of the speakers and add some treatment to the room before doing anything.
I am glad he did, I worked a lot with the distance they were from the walls, the distance they were from each other, and the toe-in. I also added some room treatment . After playing around with them for a while, I was very pleased with the sound. It was quite fun playing with them, it started to teach my ears what was good sound and what was bad, what I liked and what I didn't like, and taught how different variables in the room affect the sound.
Ultimately I upgraded to CM10, not because I was not happy with the CM9, but the CM10 had just been released and I wanted to take advantage of the extra bass driver and the tweeter on top upgrade from the CM9, and I knew the CM10 would be a little better.
The same thing happened, after break in I was not happy with the sound of the CM10 and thought to myself..."I thought these were supposed to be better". So again, I tweaked all the same aspects that I did with the CM9 and have the CM10 sounding amazing. After I got them sounding so good, I was afraid to even nudge them at all for fear I would mess up the beautiful sound I had finally found...
So I don't know how long you have had the CM9, or how much tweaking you have done, but they are great speakers and I think if you play around to find the sweet spot, you will ultimately be happier with the CM9 over the CM8 with your current equipment.
