Mate, Have a look at the Tapco(Mackie) S8 i brought these 3 years ago and still sound so fresh think u can pick some up for 200 a pair
There's a pair of Alesis M1 Actives on eBay currently at £82 with 10 hours left, maybe worth a pop? I have these and I am well impressed with them for both mixing and producing. Not sure what you think about buying speakers of eBay so if you decide to then ask the person why they are selling them. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Alesis-M1-Active-520-Studio-Monitors-150-Watts_W0QQitemZ190300269856QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_ConElec_SpeakersPASystems_RL?hash=item190300269856&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1683|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318
The cheapest I could find them for new was £165 from here http://www.bananadj.com/product12236_32679.aspx
