jbl lsr6328p, or lsr 28p if you go used. you will love the way they kick, you can't make them fold, clients love the sound, and they reveal beautifully the shade of the music (dark to bright) as well as the temp (warm to cold) and texture (soft to hard).

the tradeoff is that they're not as hyper-detailed as some of the newer monitors, but as you've noticed, detail is a double-edged sword: it can make you hear 'flaws' that won't be audible on 99% of the playback systems out there.

I have the BM6a (mk1) and even they are pretty loud before the orange light comes on.
For nearfields they are way loud enough.
Never tried the 12's though. The 15a's I did try and were less sweet than the 6a's but much louder.

The BM12A and BM6A MK2 just aren't up to the standards of the original BM6A MK1 and BM15A sadly.

I noticed the limiter cuts in at lot lower levels on the BM6A MK2. The bottom end of the 12A just sounded wrong to me, like the amp wasn't really powerful enough to drive that particular woofer properly. Made the bass flabby and uncontrolled. If I was sticking with Dynaudio I'd take the BM6A MK1 or BM15A over the BM12A any day.

In my experience Dynaudios have always been a little fragile and underpowered. I think that it's probably a better idea if you feel you need the extra amplifier headroom and capability to go with something much more robust. The Event Opal is pretty incredible in that regard, and it's a decent speaker for critical listening as well.

This thread was old, but as a note I think the OP went with Opals and by far, they go LOUD as HELL, cleanly.

I can't imagine the 8050's doing better in that regard.
