RE: Prospective Magnepan Owner

I'd go with the 20's, though as Big Guy says, 3.6's would work. The 20's are simply better speakers. And your space will be superb for them, or any planar. At 15' out from the walls, you'll have *no* early reflections hitting your ears before the reflections on the recording, and that will give you a vast soundstage. And you'll have great, smooth bass as well. You may need some room treatment, since the reflections travel longer before they hit the wall the reverb time of a large space is quite long. But I'd wait to get them before worrying about that, there's no predicting it and this way you can tune the room to your preference. The one disadvantage of the room is the cathedral ceiling, line sources prefer parallel floors and ceilings, but any problems should be solvable.
