Q depends on room and where you're seated as well. I would say that a lot of our customers do like setting 0.5, but each situation is different.
Here's a rough diagram on what the layout will be when I move everything over - I've highlighted the speaker placements (as a note, the front LR and LR surrounds will be rotated towards the listening position). The dark grey are areas I am not considering in the overall cubic feet. The thinner lines along the left side of the diagram represents either a patio door or a window. The object up and to the right of where the couch will be located in where I plan on setting up my dedicated music are - those notches will be wall-mounted KEF Q150s. There is an empty room, but that's only because I have no idea how things will be placed inside that room. Also, there may end up being a lounge chair in that bottom left corner if it'll fit without anything interfering with each other. Scale may not be 100% accurate, but I think it's within 6".
I am certain I'll end up bumping the Q to 0.5 with EQ switch left at EQ1 (right now it's Q0.3, EQ1). My guess is I'll have to turn the volume on the ULS-15 to around the 10-11 o'clock mark, but we'll see.
