I'm moving into a new house come August and I'm ready to invest in a nice 5.1 setup. I have already decided to buy an SVS, and originally just assumed I'd get either the 25-31 or 20-39. But I now realize that the room where the HT is going to go is relatively small (under 200 square feet (maybe even 150) rectangular with two exits, see pathetic diagram below, I don't have the exact measurements handy) and was wondering if a single 16-46 would be able to reach reference level in the room. If so, I would probably spring for the 16-46, if the budget allows. If not, then I'm sure the 20-39 (or 25-31 tuned to 22) would be more than adequate. I would love to use the small room size to my advantage in order to achieve truly deep base, then the plan would be to buy a second 16-46 if I ever moved to a larger room.
