Mordaunt-Short Avant MS906I Questions

Hi All,

I have a Denon AVR-X1100W hooked up to the Mordaunt-Short MS905I Centre and Mordaunt-Short Avant MS906I front speakers, Paradigm PS1000 Subwoofer and some rubbish rear speakers.

Anyway, I hooked the MS906's up and utilised the Bi-Amp capability so the HF is wired to the front channels and the LF is wired to the back speakers which would normally be used for a 7.1 setup and then changed the Amp mode to Bi-Amp.

However, I don't know whether I set my expections too high but they don't really sound amazing to me.. The MS905I centre is phenomenal, I absolutely love the clarity in the dialogue, the paradigm sub booms the house but the 906's...

first off the tweeters sound out high pitch noises which is fine, the middle driver has the usual sounds as expected albeit a bit flat maybe? and the bottom drivers on both sides sound quite, but way too quite?.. Like is that normal, does each driver have a different frequency or is there something wrong? The chap did tell me that one of the drivers on the bottom will need replacing but putting that aside both bottom drivers sound the same.

If anyone else knows as well, the Tweeter on the top of one of the MS906's has a dent in the dome, still sounds fine and then on the other speaker the bottom driver needs replacing so I was wondering whether the MS905 speaker has the same driver and Tweeter that the ms906 uses? Kills two birds with one stone that way.
