Best speaker design for living room
I can recommend a pair too, but I honestly think they aren't enough for that large of a space. Maybe fullsize with a 12" coax? With some .4x or .53x using 3FE25 for roomfill? Augment with a pair of 12-15" subs?

I mean, that's what I would do

I tested out two per channel 3FE22 Faital Pro , solen split at 6000 Hz, crossed Solen Split to Celestion 1525e, at 1750hz. Very decent sound, with more than enough volume for me, with Class A 10 watt per channel amps, in a room about half your size.
Settled on planar mids and matching tweeters, but I do love those Faitals, with one handling upper mids, and the other handling treble, I think they are more involving than my planars.
Sort of the nice date, versus the fun date.

I just built a line array (only one side so far) using 12 3FE25s. I wired it with the power tapering per Mr. Griffin's white paper (attached). I'm really impressed with it so far. I'm using a seperate woofer (DC160) for bass duty and miniDSP (4X10 HD) for the X/O, no additional tweaking done yet. This is in a medium sized room 15' X 30' X 8' ceilings.

I just got a new pair of 0.53x Karlsonators with dual 3FE25-16’s. It has an amazing mid range and excellent top end - surprisingly airy almost like a dome tweeter. It’s a great speaker with a low power amp.

Mini Karlsonator (0.53X) with Dual TC9FD's

I solved a similar problem some years back, I.e. a sound that fills a room regardless of listening position yet with amazing sound quality. The answer was a single mono speaker, built around a large full range driver with whizzer for excellent dispersion. Search up for my Big’un Audio Nirvana 15”
