By full range do you mean usable LF extension to 20 Hz?

1: How big is your room?
2: How far do you sit from the speakers?
3: How loud do you play?
All over the place. Depends on if the kids are around.
4: What kind of music do you like?
I listen to a large variety of music. Mainly classic rock, i.e. Floyd, Clapton, Supertramp, Judas Priest; with some newer stuff as well.
5: Is the visual look of the speakers important?
It's important to the GF and a little bit to me.
6: How far or near to the rear wall would the speakers go?
Currently the DefTech's are 18" from the wall. They could go closer but not much further.
7: What don't you like about your current speakers?
I like the range they currently have, specs say down to 17Hz, although I'm not sure how true that is.
8: What are your current speakers?
Definitive Technology BP-2002TL
9: Do you value musicality or accuracy? Meaning would you want to hear more detail out of your system or is your system a bit too fatiguing?
Detail is always nice. I'm not sure I fully understand this question though.
10: How important is deep bass?
Bass is important as I'm not running, nor do I plan to run, a subwoofer.
11: What criteria would be in your dream product?
Something that fits my budgets and will continue to impress me sonically.
12: Are there any loudspeakers make model or brands that impressed you in the past?
Focal and Wilson Audio have both impressed me. That being said both are out of my budget, even on the used market.
@gregm I am open to used speakers and I don't need to match the DefTechs for say, just want to make sure I'm actually upgrading.
@dbphd not completely down to 20Hz but that wouldn't hurt.
Thank you everyone for the responses.
I didn't think about bringing my amp with me to audition. The only thing that turns me away from that is that I currently Bi-Amp and don't want to disconnect both my amps to bring them with me every time I go to listen.
