If I were you I would be looking for a speaker with high resolution....not detail.

@mijostyn, Others have suggested Maggie’s as something I might like. They pop up for sale fairly often in San Antonio and Austin. Available now is a pair of Martin Logan Vantage. How close would those get to the 3.7i’s in detail or resolution? They’re also active so bass wouldn’t be an issue. @rgs92 I’ll look into the Karma but have also been thinking about DACs options available other than what’s in my C48. Going down that route opens up a whole nother can of worms. I also listen to a lot of vinyl and the would have to sell my C48 to get a phono preamp. I like the functionality that the C48 offers but everything is on the table right now. @sounds_real_audio what high resolution speaker do you have in mind for around $4k or so?
Treat the room first. Worry about equipment after. I went thru a journey with the same issue (s). Treated the room, dialed in the listening position & everything was magnitudes better before I changed out some critical pieces. Then we moved. I'm back to square one. So.... treat the room first. Good luck - its a long but fun process. Not terribly expensive if you are a little handy & have some basic tools.
" Designers are notorious for deliberately peaking and dipping FR to either draw attention to - or draw attention away from certain aspects of performance. " Tuning a speaker to a "house sound" is one thing. If certain frequencies are all but inaudible as in the OPs case, thats another thing all together. If you paid a couple grand for a pair of speakers with frequency holes like that, you may have made a purchasing error.
