As the htm61 s2 and cmc2 s2 are the same size, IMO the only reason you would do this is cost. A quick look at the specs shows the HTM61's -3db point at 22k, and the CMC2's -3db at 28k, which should voice better with the CM towers (except maybe the old cm9).
When I upgraded my front stage, I bought the cm9 s2 first, and was using it with a htm62 s1. It sounded awful. In fact, the cmc2 s2 was hands down a bigger upgrade from the htm62 than was the cm9 from the 683 I had been using.
If you already own the htm61 s2, which is a good speaker, give it a listen with your CMs before you decide to upgrade. If you don't already own it, pony up and buy all CMs. Youll thank yourself later.
