    The 5s no question. I've owned the Minis and 5s. I never liked the red headed stepchild 3s because they always sounded boomy. The 5s can easily fill a room that size. The two rooms I had them in were 14x25 and 19x20.

    I'll definitely second what John said. The 5's and 11's are the class of the Monitor line. One professional reviewer referred to the 5's as one of the best kept secrets in home audio. The 5's are a significant improvement over the minis.
