    right i really really need to actually get some speakers now I've been paid. I don't really have more than 150 to spend but want speakers with good clarity over volume, but a good mix would be nice!

    I've been looking at either Alesis M1 520s or maybe the M1 Passives.

    Any other suggestions?

    I got myself a pair of Alesis M1 active 520s and I'm well pleased with them but it's down to you mate if you want to wait or if you want to get some now I guess. DON'T GET BEHRINGER, YOU WILL REGRET! haha

    With the KRK monitors, would you need a sub or do they go low?

    the new g2's got much better low end than the old RP5's & 6's.. i dont think you'd need a sub.
    i went for the RP8's... amazing for the money!

    does anyone know if they realy put out on the mid frequencys and highs becuase the stereo speakers im using now just put out to much high and mids which can get a bit annoying when i ahve to turn my speakers up to even hear more of those eqs to even hear the bass i think its the speakers tho cuz my headphones sound propa out the mixer
