What speaker would you replace magnepan 2.7's with

What speaker would you replace Magnepan 2.7's with.
I have Classe Pre amp 5, Classe M700 amps, Classe 1.5 CD. I would like to get speakers with more head room. I listed to the Magnepan's at their maximum potential for long durations, not abusing the speaker. Some say that conventional cone speakers are the answer since that is what is used on stage. I have listened to Magnepan's for a long time. I like the wall of sound I get from my panel speakers.
I want to stay under $3000 used.
Thank you to all that offer advice,

I owned 2.7 nice loudspeakers but a bit grainy and hard. YMMV. Why not pick up a used 3.6? If not Hi-eff horns and ribbon systems are what I moved to after my time with maggies, sound labs, ML and a few other electrostatic planar and ribbon systems.I do enjoy ribbons but now its the hi-eff versions that move me.
I suggest MG 3.6. They have mountains of headroom if driven squarely. Are you sure your headroom limitation is in the speakers? I drive old MG 3A with TEAC X-01, ARC Ref 3, and Rowland 7Ms delivering 720 Watts over 4 Ohms that are equally as old as my MG 3As. Not only I get the typical wall of sound, but dynamics are excellent without ever clipping.
Jayoo, check out the recent thread I started, "what speakers can make a convert of Maggie lovers." There are lots of interesting comments and suggestions.

I run Classe M700 mono blocks, 700 watts each. I am looking for some head room. Maybe 3.5 or 3.6's are the way to go.
Thank you,


What does YMMV stand for?
What are hi-eff horns?
Thank you,

I understand it as:

YMMV=Your money, my vote!
Horns that can run on very low power would be considered hi-eff or high efficiency.Maggies are far from hi-eff;)
If you don't go for the 3.6s, you might want to try the larger Duntech (Crown Prince/Princess or Sovereigns) or Dunlavy (SC IV/IVA/V) speakers, which can also give you that wall of sound you like.
