I'd echo a few recommendations here (ATC, PMC), but I'd also add the KEF Reference 205/2. As long as your amp is up to it (I like them with a Bryston 4Bsst2), they sound amazing with electronic music

As already mentioned a pair of the large PMC speakers will do the job. When we had the MB2se's we gave them a proper work with lots of heavy dubstep and techno to fantastic results.

As per lots of others, I'd suggest ATC actives, I can confirm they do electronic music very well. As you have the JL subs you should be happy with the clean, neutral bass presentation they provide. If you have the space, 100s would be ideal for slightly lower bass and within budget. MattSPL successfully integrated ATC actives and a JL sub.

Adam Tensor Gamma mkII should fit the bill. also they use the same type of drives for mid and high freq as Trittons - Heil AVT, so chances are you'd like their presentation as much as of the Trittons. but I'll bet Adams would keep things clean in the bass region as well. and I think you won't need the subs with those speakers.

I'm with David - you might like to consider Kef Reference 205/2 or 207/2 (ex-dem) combined with amplification from Classe, Plinius, Electrocompaniet or Bryston. How far you go, will depend on budget.
The more competent and powerful the amp, the better they sound.

I second (third, fourth?) the the IB2s recommendation. I own the non-active version which i power with 1100 watts (at 4 ohms). They are truly full range with deep clean powerful bass. Spectacular sound. If you go with the actives, you could easily just sell your subs as you won't need them. You'll get better integrated bass just from the ib2s and they can go very very loud without compression or distortion.

I've been having a heck of time finding speakers that truly reproduce most electronic music well. If it helps, I'm a big Trance, Ambient, Drone, Post-Rock, IDM, Progressive, Breaks, Dubstep listener. Very into Jon Hopkins, Sasha, Above & Beyond, Armin Van Buuren, Hecq, Ben Lukas Boysen, LeGaScred, Jody Wisternoff, Hybrid, Digweed, Trifonic, Miles Davis, Radiohead, & Dead
I listen to a lot of these and would recommend giving Active speakers a try-out. I have the ADM 40's by AVi and have been very happy with them. And all for substantially less than $15,000!
Quested 3110 are outstanding speakers which are capable of huge volume and bass together with fabulous levels of clarity. They also have matching 15" stereo subwoofers available too.

Did you try linn?
(Linn 242) with the official active crossovers/amps I've heard will do synths very well. Cannot attest to this, only heard a lower line with acoustic music...maybe get a demo. Good luck.
One thing which is important here is how loud do you listen? Where do you cross over your speakers to the subs and do you always listen in the same place? It seems like a completely flat response (including bass) might be important in creating the effect you desire in your listening position.
