ATC are up there with your other choices so far. Since you appreciate biamping you may consider to go fully active - the benefits of completely eliminating a passive crossover are not subtle...

I use an external crossover between the pre-amp and the bass amps, it is a dbx 234xs. I have it set to the volume and frequency that I think best match the tops and bottoms. I have had a lot of people listen to my system and there is agreement that there is smooth frequency response across the range. Backed up by my simple measurements. No issue.
The EOS uses an Accuton ceramic tweeter that sounds very dry.
Pop it open and replace the coupling cap with a Jensen copper foil or VCap oil to tame it and replace the attenuating resistor with a Mills Non-inductive wirewound. You willbe very happy with the results.
Also see if you have space to upgrade the coil in series with the monitor's woofer. This is a minor mod as the Artemis' mid bass is already transparent enough.
Do you know that the monitors are driven full range or is there a cap that helps limit the subsonics as the big woofer takes over?
I only had the EOS monitors before so I know they were driven full range and sometimes stressed.
