Is this setup too much for an apartment?

    Ok, I'm thinking of getting PSB Image 6T for the mains, 9C for center and 2B's for the surrounds. Running it will be a Sony DA5ES. I'm pretty much set on the receiver, but are the speakers too much for a relatively small apartment? Its a 1200 sq ft total apartment. The living room is about 13.5ft wide and about 18 ft long. Its actually a lot airier with tall ceilings and open spaces.
    So what do you all think? Should I go with a 5T, 8C and 1B?
    Any and all opinions welcomed [​IMG]
    Thanks!

    I see speaker placement and tuning to be a factor with small areas. Also, the more furniture that has to be in the room the more it might affect the sound. I don't think speakers can be TOO good/big for a small room, there's just practicality in living space and comfort that's involved.

    If I was to build a sound room I'd actually want it to be small with sound treatment and little/NO furniture in the room.

    Keep in mind, there's always that volume control so the biggest of speakers can sound like smaller ones in any room.
