Will this still add base in the music? I know that for sub, the larger the better, but I have to deal with this
Compared to the LS50, will this be 'large' enough? It's not a really large living room
The Kube 8b won't reach nearly as low as either of it's "bigger brothers" and may come up short on bass for certain tubes of music such as EDM, some rap, Hip-hop or classical with deep pipe organs. It would most definitely add plenty to LS50's in most jazz, rock, blues, country, and so on because the LS50's maybe reach to just under 50hz with a good setup and the Kube 8b gets into the low 30's or so.
That said, the Kube 10b is just under 15" square and is a lot more bass. If there's any way you could make it work, you might really appreciate the difference.
Incidentally, though I really what I've got with the Kube 10b, if I absolutely had to have smaller I'd likely go with the SVS SB1000 before I got the Kube 8b. It's just about exactly the same size as the Kube 8b, but goes much deeper.
