8331+7360A or 8351+7360A?

My room is 3.5m x 2.5m. I'm considering two solutions:
​​​​​​​(1) 2 x 8331 + 7360A (or 7350A)
​​​​​​​(2) 2 x 8351 + 7360A (or 7350A)

​​​​​​​If there is no subwoofer, I think 8351 is better than 8331 definitely. However, I plan to combine with a subwoofer 7360A (or 7350A). Can anyone provide the suggestions to me?

  I've got a chance to work with 8331 with GML2 in a much bigger room  and I can asure you, they can sing much lower and louder. In such a tiny space you'll suffer more or less from standing waves at a certain frequency and adding 8351, with even more extended low end will brings  more problems .
So, I would recommend you to start with a 8331 and later, if it's needed to add a dedicated sub for them. It will hepls also /with GLM/ to dislocate the source of the low end and dealing with a dips and valleys under 120 hrz. At the end you'll have an optimal credible full range system in the bedroom.
