Mixing on medium size monitors

Sometimes when i mix on my Spendor SA300's i get overwhelmed by the sound and find it hard to make decisions, not so much with EQ but dynamics and balancing seems to take forever. I have to use tricks of the mind ( watching a vinyl record spin ) to gain a foothold on what's wrong.

I have a pretty decent room well treated but not pro - The Spendors are lovely and i don't seem to have a problem with stuff transferring. But i find it takes too much time to get the mix right.

I used to mix on small Genelec 1020A where the opposite would be the case, easy to mix and balance on and never felt overwhelmed by sound, but didn't always transfer as well.

I was thinking of trying a mixing service out but i'm not sure i need to.
