    If she's looking at QSC K12s then I doubt KRKs will fit the bill

    Are the speakers for you're bedroom ? or a venue ?

    If you want high quality bedroom speakers.. Adam A7's or maybe the KRK VXT range ?

    Venue : Mackie SRM450v2's seem popular

    Yea i would say Mackie may be the way to go, it would be really close to your budget

    after much thought i ended up buying the QSC K8's! Even though they are small, they do not sound small at all! These things are so amazing, they beat out all the other speakers i tested(mackie srm450v2, krk's, jbls) so happy with my decision, they are perfect!
