Upgrade from Event ALP 5 Monitors

Howdy, I want to upgrade my monitors, currently Event ALP 5.
At first I found KRK Rokit RP8 G2, price was fine and I thought they would have more low end which I found Events lacking. Or it may be my tiny not treated room, right? But I will be getting some treatment done (GIK panels and some foam).
So back to monitors. I've done some research and just a bit more expensive Yamaha HS80M came up, which I thought may be better idea than KRK. After some more research found Adam A7, more expensive but definitely more positive reviews than Yamaha.
Considering upgrade from ALP 5 and the fact that room is very small but will be treated eventually (probably not as much as it should...) which option would be the best? Yamaha seems like the best way to go for me. Adam would be very big stretch in budget and not sure about low end? Will I even hear any difference in low end between Events and KRK, Yamaha, Adam?
I want to do mixing with them but also would listen to music.

Many people have already sort-of answered in numerous threads discussing various monitors. Do a search and I'm sure you'll find all kinds of helpful information.

From all I've ever read about these monitors it's got to be the Adams.
