In an area of ​​15 sqm and at a distance of 2.5-3.0 meters where I listen to music more speaker would you suggest ??? The 8341 or the 8351 ??? Also the 7350 that I have items in my possession will cover it with one of the above speakers ???

None of the above. At large listening distance, you loose the advantages of coaxial speakers.
I'd say 8340 + 2x 7350 or, next step up: 1237.

EDIT: just saw your room size, 1237 might be a bit much ;-)

With lukester here, except to state the obvious; It's all about how loud you want it. I would also recommend going with 2x8340+2x7350 if neighbours aren't an issue - if they are, even 8330's and a single 7350 can do over 90 dB (continuous, with a bit of room to spare) at 3 m.

On the other hand, if you're decided on The Ones, go for 8341's with 2 x 7350 and rearrange your room to get much closer to get your moneys worth; You'd also alter room cancellations, probably for the better, but that's another story.
