Upgrade or add on to HS8?

Hey guys
I’ve been thinking of upgrading my HS8s. I produce techno so appreciate that they go down to 38hz. They do well but even with treatment I’m not liking how my mixes translate, especially low end. I’ve been looking at Some options that will have deep and controllable low end. Set up is in a bit of a small space, somewhat close to the wall. For that reason Adams and similar front facing port monitors have been piquing my interest.
So now I’m not sure if I should upgrade to say Adam8x or get a pair of monitors to compliment the HS8’s , I’m thinking Neumann since they tend to have very flat response but not that deep of low end.

Why not add the Yamaha sub(s)?

Have you gone thru the room testing procedure, and optimized your listening position and speaker placement?

Is your room treatment maximized?
