Hi

How large is your room and what levels do you play music at?

Don't mean to jump in here, my recommendation would be a 4B-squared for that room size and volumes. Direct experience here.   :thumb:

Plenty of them on audio marts.

OK that's a reasonable size room so I would say a 4B as the Maggies really like the power.  I find with the Maggies that they can sound a little thin in the midbass so the extra power really helps flesh that out.
