Unfortunately auratone/avantone aren't really full range (lows and highs are rolled off). I know that multi way loudspeakers are more efficient and can handle a higher power. However:
1. Am I alone to have the same issue?
2. Do you know a full range monitor without cross over?
3. Nowadays, is it still impossible to make one speaker with a frequency response from 30 to 20,000 hz?
4. If it's possible to make it, the power issue can easily be solved with several full range in each monitor (without cross)?

There is just one driver I know of that is full range from about 100Hz up to 20kHz plus - and that is the Manger.

You can buy the driver for about £700 each.

A friend, who used to be the archivist at Glyndebourne Opera, used to use Manger monitors all the time.

(Seeing as someone has revived this ancient thread which was started and "finished" before I joined Gearslutz)
