Advise for a 5.1 setup

Good evening,i'm thinking to upgrade my 5.1 system from Monior Audio RX6-centre-fx surrounds,to a 6040a 5.1 set up.My room size is  6.8m x4m x3m,typical living room without any treatment,listening distance is about 2.20 meteres.My question is if those speakers ,which i found in a very attractive price, is good enough for that dinstance?My other rig includes PSA V1510 sub(https://www.powersoundaudio.com/products/v1510),marantz 7210 av reciever, oppo 85se blue ray player.Last i'm planning to buy multiple genelec subs and speakers for an immersive 7.4.4 set up and a deticated pro in the near future, as well as room treatment by an expert.

Thanks in advance

Absolutely good enough.

but if you're crazy for multi speaker immersive, you might be better served with digital SAM monitors that have room and time of flight correction.

Thanks for the answer,i was afraid that the 7inch woofer of the 6040 couldn't produce enough LF for my listening distance.Yes i'm planning to purchase in the near future SAM monitors and subs for the best immersive experience,just didn't want to miss that opportunity,as i said before the asking price is really a bargain and my thoughts is that's a good start for a multichannel upgrade.

allrighty.

just know, that mixing digital and analogue speakers wouldn't make much sense.

The digital ones have a slight delay which would mess up the phase between speakers.

The analogue ones on the other hand might sound warmer nicer, if they still have class a/b amps instead of the new class d ones.
