I'm finding that after a number of years without any such symptoms my 'upgradeitis' has returned and having ordered my propriuses I'm thinking about some new speakers.

I do quite a lot of my listening at low volume and so I'm after something that's Dynamic, rather than something that sounds full and lifeless until you whack up the volume.  I also like speakers that provide tight, low bass and that probably means a floor standing speaker rather than a stand mounted one.

What works well for you and what might suit me?

My current speakers are Monitor Audio Gold GX300's and I have used the Proprius amps with a number of different speakers. I have found like many others than the size of room is a big factor is speaker selection. I also like deep but not over powering bass and found the traditional spikes nailed the speakers to my floorboards which joined in. I fitted the Gaia III isolating feet which made a big difference for me.

I wouldn't want to guess what would work for you in your room but will offer some obvious advice in the hope it is helpful. Try different speakers at low volumes in a hifi shop listening room, a friend's house (not during Covid restrictions), or even better borrowed to try in your home.

1990 B&W 620 80 cms tall 90db(36 LITRES)

 Focal Aria 936 92db 110 metre tall(60 LITRES)

 Focal Chora 726 87db stand mount (20LITRES)

 yes, size air volume to size of speaker and larger DB less power hungry and allow better transient response ...but acoustic environment is significant ....

I had the very great pleasure of hearing the new KEF KC62 sub paired to the KEF LS50 Meta last week. A friend just invested in the sub after having the Meta for a few months. It takes up almost no real estate, can be switched off if needed (he’s in an upstairs room above a bedroom, so doesn’t use it late night), and brought so much to the party. He spent a few hours integrating it , though.

I don't use Proprius (yet), but a lot of listening is at low volume and the Audio Physic speakers 
I use are excellent here - detailed & dynamic with superb imaging.

Say I'd like to try a speaker driver array (all the same model/load) with the Proprius, what are the limitations of array wiring with the Proprius in terms of inductance, capacitance and impedance? Do you rapidly reach a point with series-parallel wiring where the driver response is adversely affected? Like four big CHR-120 woofers in series-parallel or 20 small Alpair 5 Gen 3 in series-parallel.
A person convinced against their will is of the same opinion still.

I think you'd be fine. As long as the connections are good the length of cables between your drivers is likely to be quite short compared to running cables across a room between the amp and speakers. But the drivers need to be close together to avoid 'lobing' i.e. peaks and troughs in level.
