I have a suspicion that the Dunlavys sound slow because the Klipsches are so blindingly fast, and you've grown accustomed to that. This also explains the deep-ear bruising. Give yourself time to acclimatise to the new, slow sound, or consider another, gentler type of sensitive/fast sepaker (the type I favour, so I understand what you're talking about). Of course, you could start playing the powerful/fast amp game, but that'll be expensive and then you, too, will be an Audio Elitist, and it still won't equal the Klipsches for slam and power. On the other hand, your ears won't be bruised.
