What is a minimum room size for 1.7 Maggies?

Greetings all, my room is 12x14x7. I would like to audition the 1.7' s, however, with my room size, will it be worth it?
Also, I am using a 150w McIntosh amp. Any thoughts?
Thanks a bunch in advance.

I have 3.6's in a 12x15 room. You should be ok in that room and with that amp
I run 3.6's too in a 13 X 18 X 8 room with McCormack DNA-500 and SVS Ultra sub and it's fine. I have major room tune stuff on front/back walls. My system will energize the room, that's for sure. I agree with Arh, you should be fine.

I tried the 12QRs in an 11x12x8 room and felt they needed much more space. Might've been I just didn't care for the Maggie sound but I definitely wished I had a larger room to try them in.
It really comes down to how you are using that room... if it's a dedicated audio room with very little of anything else, then I bet it would sound fantastic with a bit of acoustic treatment. If you need to fit lot of furniture in the room as well, then I would think it could be difficult to get enough space behind the speakers. Maggies really need room behind them to breath....
Thanks, guys. Your responses have helped.
You'll need to get the Maggies at least 4 feet into the room, six feet is even better. If you can do that you are OK.
Your room size may not be optimum, but there's no reason you can't use Maggies in it.

If you have to place the Maggies close to the wall behind them (like less than 3 or 4 feet out), I suggest either diffusing or (only as a last resort) absorbing the backwave. You REALLY don't want to overdo absorption - much of the magic of a good dipole is the extra reverberant energy the backwave adds, and you want it to be full-spectrum energy, just like at a live performance.

If it's your mancave, you might even try a diagonal or semi-diagonal placement, the latter really staggers the distances to room boundaries.

My MG12's do their thing(mains, in a bi-amped system) in an 11X13X8 space. It's all about room treatment & placement(you and them). YES- diffusers behind them, if they're close to the wall. One nice thing: you don't have to worry much about side reflections(with Maggies). I listen at levels that approximate those found in live(Jazz/Blues) venues. Once upon a time; I was able to overload the room with a pair of small monitors and a Dynaco ST-70(WELL- There WAS a bed in there too......).
