Klipsch or possibly some older JBL

Quite similar to your room, I had an 18' wide by 32' deep space with hardwood veneer flooring, and even worse a lot of wood paneling on the walls. I ended up scrapping the flooring for wall-to-wall carpet
My current abode is all tile, and I have utilized are rugs and plush couches to great success.
