Upgrade from Focal Solo 6BE in 22' x 20' Room

(or 7m x 6.4m for us lot )

Recently redesigned my room with a pseudo soffit approach to my monitor positioning (as close to the front wall as possible). I used a measurement mic to find the best spot for the mix position and I've found it's about 2.8m (9 feet) away from the Solo's. Unfortunately this leaves them lacking in volume on non mastered material, especially when mixing.

I initially intended to pick up a pair of Quested V3110's as an upgrade but budget won't allow it. My next thought was Focal Twin's but as I'm unable to demo either I thought I'd query you guys for some thoughts.

Obviously speakers are a personal preference as well as a room preference so I'm asking mainly for advice regarding speakers that will be loud enough and grant me an obvious upgrade in quality by hopefully being able to go 3 way.

Would it be worth upgrading to the Twin's or wait it out to afford the V3110's? I'm not limited to those speakers so if anyone has an alternatives they have experience with I'm happy to hear it.

As always I appreciate your time and insight.
