Hello,

If you want the best, I would recommend 8260A, but that is in another price range. If you have the option to switch to 8030B, I would definitely make it because the 8030B is a better speaker than the 8020B.

Hi,

8030 is not too big for your room because the minimum listening distance is only 0.5 meters and if you will encounter bass problems (typically too much bass), the speaker has room eq controls which help you to achieve flatter response. I have seen people using 8050 speakers in a similarly sized room as yours without any problems. :)
