Hmmmm....the first comment makes me think it is not the spectral balance that you miss in the kitchen, it is more that you miss listening in the near field where the direct sound of the loudspeakers dominants the sound coming from the room(modes and reflections). If that is that case, not sure there is much that can be done short of moving the speakers into the kitch. But your second comment makes it sound like all you have to do is turn up the volume and then you are happy in the kitchen, so am still uncertain as to what you are describing.

When I said LOUD, I meant full tilt. You're right, it's that perfect sweet spot I want everywhere. That spot is not as pronounced with dynamic drivers so more of a change when you move out of it.
