Think of all the rooms in all the houses you've ever been in and their sizes.
If you're of below-average means, the top 1% are "large", the bottom 50% are "small" and the middle 49% is "medium".
If you're of average means, The top 20% are "large". The bottom 20% are "small". The middle 60% is "medium".
If you're rich, the top 50% are "large", the bottom 50% are "medium", and small is the butler's pantry.
I have some home cinema and Sonos stuff.
I don't know, many former local authority houses have quite large internal dimensions (and are often bigger than more expensive houses on "private" estates). I'm not sure your formula stands up to scrutiny!

That thing's called a cat o' nine tails in case anybody was wondering.
As in "There's not enough room to swing a cat in here."
If your remote is out of range when you're at one end of the room and the TV / stereo / whatever is at the other, it's large.
If your remote works just fine, it's medium.
If you don't need a remote, just a walking stick (at most) to change channels, it's small.
Hi Iansy, your room is small if it measures 4m x 4m or less. I hope this helps you, Ric.
