Default Room aize for Tannoy Kingdom Royals

Hi Tannoy fans,

I am looking for members with personal experience with the Tannoy Kingdom Royals (the versions after 2010). Could anybody give me an idea about the optimal room size to make these speakers work? Also, any thoughts on the minimum room size?
Thanks!

Not sure what "optimal" size would be but I listened to a pair in a approx 16x22 sized room. They sounded well balanced but the room was heavily treated.

Here is a quick video https://youtu.be/T4jVS-dJPyE

Thanks for your input. My dedicated audio room is 13 ft X 18.5 ft. I wonder if that would be too small.

Hmm, I had a pair of Canterbury SE's in a room that was 14x19. It was OK but they sounded much more effortless and more coherent when I moved them to a much bigger open space in the basement. Here is the smaller room. https://youtu.be/R-d9RhL7RXE

Thanks. That is what I was thinking — the big Tannoy’s might be acceptable in a small room but they will not shine unless they are in a bigger space.
