Your good. I have the CDT CL4 midrange and it has awesome vocals. I would buy CDT components if I wasn't running active.

No. How would it? When has not playing something at full volume ever hurt the sound or the speakers? Even if you did put it on a 150W amp the majority of the time it your speakers will be seeing much much less than that. Unless you are listening to sine waves at full volume all the time. If anything the sound will improve and you will see less harmonic distortion, given that you aren't pushing your amp to the limits.

No, you aren't weird for wanting "rear fill". Not everyone really needs or appreciates stereo imaging. Some people just want a lot of sound all around them. Nothing wrong with that.
