best [loud] loudspeaker recommendations for 2000 cu. ft room?
i'm looking for recommendations for seriously loud towers for a moderate sized room. i'm running a pair of 1989 jbl l100t3's and they can crank which i enjoy, but between the foam re-builds, replacement tweeter & mid-ranges they've had patched into them over the years they just don't sound that good anymore. i'm wondering if there's anything on the market that can get as loud as these do but still have some kind of refinement/neutral sound--these jbl's are rather fatiguing. also, these jbl's are very wide (15") and won't fit that well into the new room they're moving to, so something narrower would be ideal--seems like almost any tower i look at will be an improvement in this regard.
i was thinking of trying a pair of aperion verus towers but they're 3 months back ordered and honestly i'm not sure if they'll crank as loud as i'd like. other brands i've considered are svs, goldenear, elac, and ascend acoustics. for a modest budget of ~$3k or so am i going to find something like this? i'm starting to wonder if i need to look at something like what jtr offers to fulfill my wants. my father has a pair of paradigm signature s8's and while they sound amazing, i don't think they'll crank as loud as i'd like them to--nor do i really want to drop $6k for a pair of used speakers.
and no i'm not trying to give myself tinnitus, but i can't be the only one that recognizes that a lot of speakers these days just can't turn up that loud, and that movie theaters are for the most part lacking sans (some) imax features--at least audibly.
any recommendations that might work for me are very welcome, thanks for the read.
