Default JBL LSR 6328P or Genelecs 8020 for small mix room

Will be setting up a new surround mix/writing room. I don't have much space, 10' (W) x 24' (L) x 10' (H).
I have the choice of either JBL LSR 6328P + sub or Genelecs 8020 + sub, any suggestions ? As much as i love the JBL, i'm afraid it's overkill for such a small room...mix position is roughly 3 feet from the monitors.

Thanks

Have you looked at PSI 17’s?
Way flatter than the others and the phase accuracy of these is off the scale (it really makes a difference when eq-ing dials and atmospheres. I measured them with a Trinnov whilst doing a magazine review)

I replaced the front array of my Blue Sky 5.1 system with 6328's last year, and I'm loving them. My mix position is closer to five feet, though, and I haven't had any mixes taken to a dub stage yet. But they are wonderful, and I wish I'd done this years earlier.

Also curious about you having easy access to buying them in Montreal, since they're out of production and I had to search high and low to find three last year. Did somebody up there buy all the remaining stock?

I'm partial to the LSR set. I find my mixes translating very well to the stage with them.

I was not aware the JBL was discontinued. I can still buy them from my dealer.

Btw, how far are your Ls and Rs, roughly the same (5 feet) as your LCR ?

thanks

The 6328's are very different from the 8020s.. double the size really. 3 feet might be a bit close. They are in between near-field and mid, I mix on them 6-7 feet away and love them. Have you considered the smaller JBLs? The 4328s come to mind.. also pretty common.

Yes, all the distances are equal.

I suggest you to use JBL 708p monitors. They are a bit smaller than the 6328 and sound much better. I am selling three new 708p in the buy&sell forum for a good price if you are interested.

I went with the LSR6328P + Subs.

Thank you all for your suggestions/advices
