5.1 sound system - RP250, RP280 or RP160?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

After thirty years of waiting I'm finally getting a man cave and the only problem left is choosing a good sound system!

The room is pretty small only 11ft across.

 

Is the room too small for the larger packages RP280 or RP250? I've read that the speakers might be too large to produce good sound in smaller rooms, but I do want the richer and deeper sound which I guess the larger speakers are better at? 

 

Please help a novice, can I go with the larger speakers or is the rp160 a better choice?

My living room is about that size and for my 5.1 I have two pairs of RP-160Ms and RP-250C and R-110SW. More than enough power and range for the size of the room. Many people on here always push for the biggest you can afford lol. I was being realistic and am very happy, originally I had the RP-260F as fronts and traded down to the RP-160Ms, sounds more balanced to my ears.

Hi! Thanks for the replies!

 

The room is 11ft x 26ft and the height is only 7.2ft (it's in the cellar). 

Money isn't an issue, but if a smaller system will produce better sound for the rooms dimension :)

We just remodeled the room by moving a doorway so now we can place the TV on the short end of the room!

I was thinking of placing the sofa about 13 feet from the TV.
