11.6 x 10.5 is way, way, WAY too small for Sophias. The only thing I would use in that sized room would be tiny monitors or headphones.Minimum for the Sophias to open up is 16 x 18 or so. Larger is better, 19 x 21 is probably about the right size.

|how to upgrade 802 N?|
If your goal is more bass extension, then add a high quality sub and integrate it properly, either with EQ or without. Kal is right on - messing with the 802D sounds like a potentially costly mistake!
|VPI ScoutMaster or Project RM10|
I would take the project carbon fiber arm over any JMW arm. Keep the Project - unless you're having a major problem with it
