My room is 11.5x15.' Currently I have Triton 1's powered by Pass Labs XA100 mono-blocks. My sweet spot forms the equilateral triangle between myself and the speakers; they are 8' apart from the tweeter center. The rear of each speaker is 3.5' out from one of the 11.5 foot walls. The rear corner closest to the side wall is 10" from the side wall. They are toed in to point to my shoulder/neck area. Bass level is set using pink noise track a friend made. The sound never ceases to amaze. It seems crazy but if I upgrade does the size of my room determine my choice between the One R's and the Reference's?

Hi

Good questions. Room size shouldn’t dictate which speaker you choose IMO.
Both the 1.R and T Ref are significant steps up and either would work in your room. Listen to both if you can. Either’s SL’s and bass can be adjusted to your preferences and room acoustics. And yes the T Ref is a step up from the 1.R.

So whatever works for you. But I’d go by which speaker floats your boat best, not by any concerns about room size.

Just my thoughts.

Happy listening!

Ditto what Rick said. I don't really think any room is to small for the Refs, except maybe the bathroom, closet, or dog house. As stated, listen to both, if the sound of the T Refs floats your boat, buy them! You won't be sorry...I guarantee it!

Every great performance deserves an Audience!
