http://www.htfr.com/monitor-speakers/?manufacturer=samson i have the cheap 30watt pair, but theyre worth so much more, small, powerful for 30watts too. i herd all 3 of the same range, the 40 watt pair was a big step up in sound for 10 watts, but i was on a budget and dont have alot of room.
nice one man, im taking a look as we speak, in all honesty i'd like some events lol or even alesis but im on a budget. maybe if i start selling tracks sooner or later i can get a better setup. currently using a pair of crap takmaster cans. so i have to have big breaks between each production session. i often have some online friends pass things through their analogue compressors too.
I reckon 5 inch speakers can carry you very far for the money and without annoying neighbours also. When it comes to mark and model, you have a lot of options as well as opinions. But All you can do is pick a few tunes that you feel have good sound qualities and that you've listened to many many times. Then go to your local music gear retailer and ask if you can test them with your cd, or iPod or whatever. The choice is in the end yours. Don't buy what you hear from based on what you read.
But one mark that hasn't been introduced here yet (i think) are ESI nEar models, they come in 5 and 8 inch varietes and are very cheap, the smaller is 165€ per pair.
I really wouldn't know, never heard 'em! Just mentioned them because nobody else had and I know they are cheap. But then again so are behringers, and to be honest they are better than their undeserved infamy.
I remember someone on the Grid rocking those nEar boxes though.
