8040 w/ 7050 Or 8050

Hi! I'm from Spain so sorry for my english.

I've decided to upgrade my studio after years producing, i got a doubt between 8040 with a 7050 sub and a pair of 8050.

My room is about 3,3 long, 2,4 wide and 2,60 high.

I've heard the 8050 in a shop and i was amazed with the sound, but I'm a little bit scared about the size of my room (it's getting treated, i've got 4 HOFA Basstraps and some Absorbers)

The 8040 was almost the same but im losing some low end sub bass (as i make primarily electronic music to be played over club systems) so I would need to add a sub (I've read than the 7050 is suited to work with 8020/8030) but i cant afford a higher sub at the moment.

What you think it's the best decision?

My room is like this

There’s been threads about this, use the search function.

I own the 8040’s without a sub and can’t hear much below 100hz if that helps.
