I wish I could provide some real help for you, but it's my opinion that speaker placement (and lack of acoustic treatment) in your listening room will hinder the performance potential of any speaker you buy...even more so than your electronics. That said, I feel that good soft dome tweeters are better than any metal dome tweeter, and you might want to give some of those a listen sometime. Companies like Dynaudio, Nova, PBN, Meadowlark, Merlin, all have smaller speakers in your price range. If you'd ever consider buying used speakers, you can get a hell of a lot of speaker for $1500. My Paragon Acoustics Radiants are perhaps the best speaker value anywhere, especially if bought used, like I did. Let me stress again, an untreated room is NOT a listening room! Good luck.
