7070a with 8040 or used 1032a pair

Im putting together a studio again , i have never heard Genelecs or much other speakers either. Im going to audition them soon but my eye has been caught by these models.

Im doing bass heavy music. The room is small 2.5m x 4m , but i want big system anyways. I know its waste but i dont want to sit there wishing i had better sound or more of it, i can always turn the volume down right?

7070a is my choice of subwoofer

Now what do you guys think about :
1032a pair used for 1.5 years vs brand new 8040b pair?

I know from specs that the 1032a has more power, weight and price to it. And that sounds good to me , but how do they sound like vs 8040.

Or should i just go crazy and sell everything i have and get the 8260s pair. Man i know i couldnt afford them but they would be so king (i know without listenin). If you have thoughts about 8260s ,8040bs or so on what could work, please dont hesitate to post it here.

Antti ,

the 8260's are kings, and the most cost efficient Genelec product - no doubt!

Are you serious about what you do?
Then consider a set from the DSP enhanced 8130/82XX/72XX series.
That could be:

8130 + SE7261A SUB
8240 + 7260A SUB
8260 - no sub needed!

Try to get an audition in your own space and you'll hear why.
