These are old Silver LCR's that predated the current (2003 forward) MTM design. They are more like 15-20 years old, not 6. I've heard from Triad that they are not as good as more current models.

best case scenario is you match the lower level speakers, so if you've got Paradigms down low and those H65-A's fit your budget, then go for it. The angled baffle will work well for Atmos.

It's a little bitty 6" woofer. It will play down to maybe 40-45Hz at best, so you will get some extra oomph at low volumes but you won't get any real deep bass.
