I have fallen under their spell. I have be moved my system into a much larger room so my current monitors don't fill the room with music like I want. (room size 29' x 18' with 13 ft vaulted ceilings) I use a BAT integrated 150 watt SS, with tube preamp. Question which would work better in my room 2.5 or 3.8? Would the 2.5 be big enough or would the 3.8's be too big for this room? I listen mostly at moderate levels.

11-06-03: Gunbei Interesting question. I use ProAc Response 1SCs and Tablette 50 Signatures in a 12x14x8 room. I think 2.5s might be too big for this room because of all the stuff I have in it.
At the last CES Vegas show the ProAc/ARC room had a pair of the large D80s playing and they almost completely disappeared. The room was only a hotel suite with most of the furniture removed in the main living room.
Your room seems much bigger and I'm sure 3.8s would perform well there. Whether the 2.5s would or not is harder to say. A lot depends on how much furniture, plants, etc. you have sharing the space, but 13 foot ceilings may be the deciding factor.
