    Default Room Dimension for Speakers

    Recently,I purchased the following:
    POLK AUIDO SPEAKERS
    1.) RTI A7
    2.) CSI A6
    3.) FXI A4
    4.) DSW pro 500

    I just found out that the room where it is supposed to be placed in our new house was changed. I looked at the dimension of the room and it is 13"x13". So it is a perfect square. The speakers would be arriving next week. I am just concern if the the speakers would overpower my 13" x 13" room?? If yes, Is there any suggestion regarding such matter?? By the way, I would be powering my speakers with an Onkyo 708 receiver.

    I'd rather have too much than too little. Volume is something you can control. You will be fine.

    There's really no such thing as overkill...within reason anyway.

    You'll be able to calibrate them to work very well in your room. I'm sure you'd be able to get by with some smaller speakers too, but that doesn't mean that using the bigger ones is going to make anything sound worse.

    As grimmace said, the volume is something you can control. Having more than you need is better than not having enough.

    I agree, you'll be fine in that size room, and if you get a bigger room in the future you'll be fine then too :)

    Just bear in mind that a square room is the worst scenerio for music reproduction. It can be an acoustical nightmare. Fire everything up & see how it sounds, room treatments can be a big help. Do a search on room dimensions for further information. All in all though I'm sure you'll be fine.

    I am tweaking my layout and found this app - free that I am tinkering with as I play with speaker placement. With a square room it may help with some starting points.

    Thanks for the replies :)

    @pearsall001

    I am a total noob in home theater. What I have in mind after researching is to put heavy curtains around the room. I hope it is enough. . . .

    @polktiger

    Appreciate it thanks much!! :)

    Default Remodal family room

    I am looking at the same set-up you described. My room is 12x24. With a 50/ 55 inch monitor what would be correct placement for FXiA4? How far behind monitor? How far up the wall? Is there a better solution? I looked at ceiling mounts, didnt add up!!
