Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, but I couldn't find a similar post after a quick search so I'll just ask.  I was wondering whether the larger speakers (6T, 6C, Bravus 12D) have advantages besides just filling a larger room with great sound?  For instance, if you have a smaller room, would 6T's actually sound better than 4T's if both were played at the same volume?

I ask because my room is sort of medium sized (primary listening area approx 18' deep x 21' wide with 9' ceilings) but it also opens to an entryway on the side, a breakfast area directly behind it (10' x 11') and a kitchen next to the breakfast area.  So my inclination is to go for it and get 6T's, a 6C, and the Bravus 12D with 2 6-IC's for surround.  With my room dimensions, would it be better to step down to 5T's or a Bravus 10D, or is bigger always going to be better?

That is about the size of my room and the 6Ts sound excellent.

Well, I see it like this. JMO— You may not be able to tell a significant difference in a room of your size, especially if you get the 12D, The 5T's paired up with the 12D would definitely fill your room with room to spare. But the 6T's are awesome speakers ( never heard em, but were rated in top 10 of CNet's audiophile speakers, prestigious award there), so if you have the budget, than get the 6T's, that way you'll never wonder what if………. but whatever you choose, you will be happy. I know I am. Good luck. Let us know what you go with in the end. And I say get the 6C, especially if you watch movies a lot, it's a good center, one of the, if not the best I've heard. That's what I have, and it's my favorite speaker.

Browninggold, I gotta mancrush on your setup. To say I'm jealous would be a vast understatement. Nice work!

Thanks for the compliment mjwarburton, listening to 2 channel direct right now with music.  I have to say the 6Ts sound real good with the Emo amp.
