Concur with bros here that floorstanders may not be the best for your space.

And it might not be always true that floorstanders is always better for music. A well built bookshelf speaker e.g. KEF ls50, put on good stands can be quite hard to beat.

Try wide dispersion bookshelves that are sealed or front ported, so that less space needed to avoid rear boom, in your restricted space

I would add KEF into the list.

I would caution against putting your bookshelf speaker on a TV console esp if ur usage is in music too.... it will likely mess up your sound unless u have ways to overcome the issues that come with it.

Put it on a good stand as what badenglish mentioned. This will bring out the best of the speaker. :)

And yes, since window bench is optional, I would really avoid having that. U need as much frontal width as possible in that space. Especially,  if u are putting stands.

??? What are you trying to convey here? the "wallpaper" on the ceiling? or are you trying to tell us where you hide the "VOG" ceiling speaker in this picture???
