I'm surprised about the suggested reply to my question about very efficient speakers that might work with my 1.5 watt amp in my 11 x 11 room. I'm surprised the suggestion was for Klipsch La Scalas, Cornwalls, and older Reference Series speakers. I would love too. But they (1) won't fit in a room so small without taking up lots of real estate, (2) not sure they would integrate well with the near-field listening, and (3) I suspect they will have too much bass for my square wooden box-of-a-room. I know JLM has used (or is using) Duke's Audiokinesis speakers, and I had a pair of Duke's Rhythm Prisms in the 11 x 11 room and I couldn't tame the bass. Those speakers moved to the basement where they (and I) live very happily, and yes, I added the extra tweeter behind to make them approximate Duke's Prisma speaker.
