Kef's q900 or q700 for a 12' seating position

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am thinking of buying the kef's Q series. I know the q900 are better but, I don't want to over do it.. the seating positions in my room will be 12 feet away from where the speakers will be. also, people might sit closer than that, the side sofa it about 7 feet away from the speakers. Most of the times though, people will be seated 12 feet Away. I want to get a speaker that will sound good with out being too exaggerated, and I wont be able to get the proper quality sound because I'm sitting too close. for the centers, I already have the Q200, and I have a
Denon AVR 4319 here's the specs: http://usa.denon.com/DocumentMaster/US/AVR-4310CI_Lit514.pdf

So What I really want to know is if that is really something to worry about, or is it all just nonsense?

I am myself running in a room 12.0078 x 16.404 feet(3.66x5 meters, coverted to feet tongue.gif), with 2x Q900's and 2x Q700's smile.gif
And I don't think it's too much even for such room.
If I am listening to music I am playing it in stereo over the two Q900's or all four speakers with the Q700's behind me, running trough a stereo receiver(oldie, a Pioneer SX-6000) with a lot of authority.

If you are looking for the best between the two and you're budget allows to buy the Q900's I am recommending the Q900's those are even better than the Q700's which are already very good in their own.

I'd buy the floor standers with the matching 5.25" driver--the Q500's.

I have a feeling it will be fine for your space, especially if you are crossing over to a sub, or subs, at 80hz.

What made you purchase the center before deciding on the rest of the speakers?

the q500 will be too small for my room.
