Don't think you should need to Charles.  Just need to match the volume to the speaker output.  Don't wanna run ESL57's in a 1000 cubic foot space and don't want to run Infinity IRS in  a 10x12 space.  Just set the speakers and seating in the room in the right places and treat accordingly - diffusion behind dipoles/bipoles, not behind monopoles, etc.
I am serious... and don't call me Shirley

  Thanks Brian. That sounds just too simple. Are you saying that a room build around proper ratios [ Say Cardas as an example] is all one needs ? Then treat accordingly ? What I'm getting at is say I own single driver speakers with built in subs. We then could not optimize the room size or shape according to the dispertion characteristics of that speaker ?
