Usher 6311s should be a very good choice or Reference 3A- decapos (satellite) or their floor=standers

The Zingali horns are really dynamic and probably provide the strengths you're looking for with orchestral music. Mine (model 3s) tend to go a little hard when the volume is cranked, but YMMV depending on amp and room size. The old Zingali distributor OSS may have some available on closeout. I think he may also have some lowthers on hand.
I can't yet speak to their efficacy but I am going to be trying Audiokinesis/Duke's swarm sub system with my Lamhorns. Based on some past experience and my discussions with Duke I am fairly confident that this is going to be a winner. The system is essentially four powered subs that have been equalized to work in a real room setting. The enclosures are 10.5"x10.5" by 21" and can essentially be placed anywhere around the room (only 1 in a corner). This provides great set up options and the principles behind how it propogates bass into the room seem solid.
The whole system including the amp is in you price range.
This may not only give you what you are after for classical and "big, bad" music but other genres as well
I am not associated with Duke/Audiokinesis in any way and actually am not really endorsing the product (yet) as much as the man and the concept
I would like an effective and elegant solution when "fast" bass is a requisite.
