Is the Hybrid 15 - 5.1 overkill for 2000 cu. ft?

This may be a bit of a rhetorical question - BUT, I'm interested in opinions on whether this package is overkill for a room that is about 2000 cubic feet. Mind you, it's our living room and is not closed off - so I wasn't sure if I should consider the volume of the adjacent areas (kitchen, formal dining room, breakfast bar) that are separated by a door opening about 4ft x 8ft.

The room is not a rectangular shape, and 2 stairwell openings, and a small reading nook that is oddly shaped and part of the main living room area itself - all of this is probably a good thing to eliminate standing waves.

At some later point the system will move to the basement, to an area that will be about ~5100 cu. ft (18 x 36 x 8) unfinished. Thinking long term is why I am opting for this system rather than buying small now and then having to upgrade later.

I'm in Ontario, Canada and hoping to buy this for coming xmas - may have to ship to a US PO BOX near Buffalo or Niagara to save on duty etc - still haven't worked out the kinks on that part yet.

Any thoughts?

The Hybrid 5.1 won't be too much for your room. You do need to take into consideration the entire space just not the area you'll be sitting in. The bass will have to fill the entire space not just the one room.

@Iradden - thanks, this is exactly what I was thinking/understood as well and I figured if I invest now, then later on the sub will serve my purpose for a lot longer than if I bought a smaller one and then realize it may not be big enough down the road in larger rooms etc.
