What is a good search app for website with 70k products?

I've been looking for a search app that can show appropriate search results.
We have more than 70k products and monthly search operations are about 10-11k.
Search apps for this size are very expensive, so I wonder if you can recommend any affordable and versatile search apps.
So far we've tried Rapid search, Algolia and some others.
Which app is going well on our site?

Would be helpful to know what features you need the search app to have, as well as what limitations/problems you have with the regular search functionality that's built into all premium themes.

Currently if i search for 'camera' then the search result shows camera lens, camera bags, tripods, etc.
So the first real camera comes up at the end of the first page.
I need the demote feature so we can demote products under certain categories something like video accessories, camera accessories. 
If the search engine has a setting to demote any products tagged with 'xxx accessories' then we can put the accessories to the back of the search result. I don't want to exclude those products, though just want to put them behind.
My theme is 'Enterprise' and I'm currently on the Shopify advanced plan.

Thank you!

The enterprise theme actually has a built-in functionality for "product type dropdowns" which you could use to help filter which results are shown. See here for how to set it up: https://support.cleancanvas.co.uk/hc/en-us/articles/11128831722013-Search-bar

Thank you for your answer.
First 2 are too expensive for us. Let me try the other 2. Thank you!
