You are going to lose some depth in the bass for sure without the powered subs. In that price range I think used Revel 208s or new 206 are worth looking at. Kef R5 or used R7 would be another one. I prefer the revels over the Kefs for a more integrated natural sound. B&W lower models are under-performers imo. I have owned the 703s a long time ago and would not recommend them.
GE Triton Reference speakers. Bass is much, much better and much more defined and articulate. You have the least expensive GE powered speakers, there is no comparison between the 3+ and the Triton Reference.
I don’t get it. Guy asked for suggestions, said didn’t want a powered bass section. I gave a suggestion based on 2 speakers I know very well. One being the Triton Ones. What’s funny? You would see if you read my previous posts I tried them with tubes, class d, high current ab, tube preamp with ss amp etc.
I didn’t see where the OP said he had the Triton 3s before I made that comment just that he had powered Tritons. My mistake. So now I’ve made a suggestion based on actual experience and your still acting like a little sissy. I don’t think my comment was that big a deal then you came back with “shut your mouth”. Anyway done with you.
