8010 vs 8020 in microscopic room

Which of these would be better for mixing in a tiny, untreated room that is about 2.5 x 2.5 meters?

The Genelecs will be used (without a sub) in tandem with the M Audio AV40s and a pair of Sennheiser HD600s

Nevermind, I've reached my own decision about it.

I compared the dimensions of the 8020 and the AV40s and realized they are almost identical. But I also came to the conclusion that there really isn't much point to have both sets of monitors -- I'll just sell the AV40s and put the 8020s on their stands, then get something like a single Avantone Mix Cube to check the midrange and mono compatibility.

The 8020s are undoubtedly more future-proof anyway in terms of filling bigger rooms.

Hi,

You definitely made the right choice, bigger models are always more future-proof and will provide better sound quality even in your current room, just remember to set up them correctly when it comes to room response controls.
