It's often hard to find speakers that work well in smaller rooms that must be placed close to corners or walls, etc. I also have a small listening space and have settled on a pair of b&ws, although I hear that there is better to be heard. I'm not affiliated with this company, and I have yet to try their speakers, but there is a guy in north carolina who makes a highly sensitive speaker made specifically to fit into corners. It looks similar to some of the totem models. You can find him at hornshoppe.com He even offers a full money back guarantee if you're not totally satisified. Good luck with your search.
