How to choose between 8320 or 8330?

my question is in the title ,

i will use the monitors for mixing, using it with a Native Instrument Maschine + (a standalone synth/groovebox/sampler) and listening music

My monitors will be set in a table around MAXIMUM 1 m from me

So is a bigger monitor a better choice or a smaller ? 

 Some say the bigger the better , but should i put more power to have the same amount of sound with a bigger speaker? I hesitate with smaller ones because i dont need to much volume/power output, just trust of what i ear.

If i take the 8330 it s 500 euros more than the 8320 , it is justified?  Can I use /mix them without a subwoofer ? ( i dont want to buy one)

Is the calibration system GLM useful to upgrade sound or i can use normal 8020 or 8030 ?


Thanks for all
