Barkeep, welcome. You added a key piece of information in your follow-up post: your listening distance would be 10 feet. Although a room has to be "filled" with some level of sound, it doesn't necessarily have to be adequately loud at the farthest reaches, just at your listening position. Both room size and listening distance are factors, but the M22s should serve you well at the position you describe.

Bartender,
Do you already have a specific seller in mind? The Klipsch's horn tweeters can accentuate the highs more than average, coupled with your room with a lot of reflective surfaces, which would also accentuate the higher frequencies as well. As has been said, this may sound just fine to your ear. If there is any chance to borrow the Klipsch's you have your eye on, that would be a great thing to do. If the seller would let you buy and return in three days if they did not work well in your room,that would be good.
As Rick? mentioned, the fact that the Klipsch's are one of the more efficient speakers, they will require less power to drive them. It also means that for a given (low) amount of power, they will fill the room better than many speakers. Being on a budget, they certainly could be a good fit for the large room to fill it with sound more.

Good luck and welcome to the forum. :o)


Hey guys. Thanks a lot for all the great answers! I plan to stick around here, as it seems to be a great forum. Also, I would really like to try some nice M22s or M3s when $ permits. I just recently graduated, and am still paying school loans. That's the reason I'm sticking to a strict budget for right now.

Not that young. Just graduated with a master's, and I took a couple years to work after the bachelors. I'm still under 30 though;)

The name "Klipschorns" sounds like a word a sheep herder would use to describe his flock after harvesting the wool.

I wish my monthly payment of law school loans meant I was still a youngster. Makes me feel old to pay a second mortgage every month on a house I can't ever visit (based on the price, apparently its quite nice)!

Apparently, upon graduation, you are not, in fact, given a million dollars. I should have checked into that more at the front end.

Charles, still paying on those loans after 9 years? Of course, maybe if you'd have spent a bit less on wire...

John, you are right. Charles is embarrassed to admit to the third he took out to finance that speaker wire! When he does a refi., the new lender will say: WTF is this third? It's bigger than the first and second combined! And what the heck is this Levitating Scandium Wire Co. Inc?!?!? You borrowed from a DEAF Monk? I really don't know if we can help you sir...
