A rather simpler method than Darac suggested is to make the vttys use a lower
density mode, accepting the default size 16 font. Include the mode you want on
the kernel cmdline, either directly in the kernel: e.g. video=1280x800@60 or
vga=normal, or indirectly using native Grub2 commands, according to the man page
using /etc/default/grub's GRUB_GFXMODE_LINUX= and/or GRUB_GFXMODE=.

If Plymouth is installed, purging it might also be of use.
