in no particular order;
no, I don't think your asking too much of a decent FR system
the room you describe is small enough that you might well find the smaller Alp7 or 10.2 quite satisfactory for both sensitivity/SPL and bass extension - and the required enclosures are somewhat smaller if floorspace is an issue
this retirement thing is harder than it looks for some folks

I appreciate the reply. Footprint really isn't an issue at all, no WAF to deal with, I married a saint. My second spkr system is a pr of 30" wide baffles, a totally different type of sound, but I like them.
I have been urged to try the 10.2s by another member, and the baffle width of the Super Pensils does put me off a little with respect to imaging. I was wondering if there wasn't another way to achieve their goals without changing it from the original Pensil 12 design. A huge radius cut on the side corners might be an option.
I realize there are many more advanced cab designs I can try, and I'm a fairly competent woodworker so starting with the right driver is the biggest deal for me at this point. Are there any specific designs that you might recommend?
Sorry for rambling.
