You might consider using a pair of monitors with a subwoofer for ‘full reange’ sound in that size room.

Sonus Faber Chameleon B would be perfect.Cabinet size & 6" woofer give a solid Bass foundation & they are bottom ported so close to wall is no problem!They are also right at your budget limit & worth every penny!
As for the Martin Logan Motion mentioned above I demo’d them a few weeks ago & they need a little room to breath as the large port gets boomy close to wall & the 35XT’s are even worse,ALTHOUGH if they are given room to breath they are FANTASTIC speakers!
What are you driving them with?
(((i modded a pair of vandersteen 2c and i believe them to be too big for my 14’ x 16’ room. looking to downsize.)))
Save your money.
Even though your speakers are 30 years old they are still ahead of smaller less cohesive box designs and other
well intended comments.
Even in a 9 x 12 room this works for you as its a sealed non ported design.
All you need to do is
(((insert the Vandersteen X2 assessment unit at your amp and start with the lowest dip switch settings.
Listen and work up on settings till desired bass is perfect for that room.
I promise you it will be a holy Cow moment!
Most likely un modding after will make the music even better.

Platinum Audio Solo speakers, small 2-way, NO need for subwoofer...
