I decide to buy Logitech z906 for a 20*14 size room. This is my final Verification. Is it capable of handling all the sound effect? I shall not use it with a PC but as a real home theater with 3d blu-ray player.

Not really a good idea, high frequencies cause drivers to "beam" which limits their dispersion characteristics, so they won't be able to fill a room very well. The Logitech's with their 3" (or is it 2.75"?) driver are designed for near-field where tighter dispersion characteristics are favorable--i.e., on a desk or in a small room where reflections would reduce the sound quality.

For home theater it's much more advantageous to have a high frequency tweeter that beams--raise it at ear level, and have the other less directional frequencies played by a mid range or midbass driver.

Yes, it will handle all the sound effects. What it likely won't do is:
- handle all the sound effects well at loud volumes; and
- deliver the kind of deep bass and overall impact you might be expecting.

(There's only so much a system with 3" satellite speakers and a small, modestly-powered 8" sub can do.)

IMO, it's not the right system to use for HT in a 20' x 14' room. But if you do buy it and do like it, that's all that matters. smile.gif

Can't really imagine using that in a home theater environment. I'm using the iconic z2300 system in my bedroom, connected to my Vizio tv. While it is certainly an improvement over the internal tv speakers, I can't imagine it filling a large room with sound. These are computer speakers, made for near field listening in smaller rooms. If this is something you already have and want to know if it will work, then yes. If this is something you're considering, then look elsewhere.
