    i've never really liked 8"monitors. (just my personal taste) the 6's are nice though.

    what is your room size? It's just that with 8" speakers, most small bedrooms are just too small - there will be huge bass errors.

    I have these and i am happy with them, although there the only ones ive used so i cant compare them to anything else.

    I also mostly use my house stereo to produce on nowadays as i prefer the wamth and volume of them. If i ever actualy finnish a track i will use my monitors to master it lol

    Sorry im of no help realy but i remember when i was shopping for mine, i researched plenty but in the end preffered to have more options suggested and then just made my own choce based both on advice and my budget.

    Good Luck anyways mate

    this. perhaps consider going for the 5s and some absorbers instead.

    im getting the 5s soon. not so much by choice but i have a feeling it will actually benefit the sound, as my studio is a small cupboard in the attic.

    the thing with 6" monitors without a sub is that you have to be an experiented producer to just not overdo the bass as you cant really hear any sub frequencies..

    i got myself the alesis m1 mk2 with 7,5" and in my room with like 20m² (dunno what that is in squarefeet..) that works a treat. got some bass errors, but i can check that with my hifi and headphones, so doesnt really matter that much..

    You can just about feel the top of the sub comin through, and when you get those realy boomy, powerful notes it's hits quite nicely.
    To be honest, I think the 5's are adequate for a small home production set up.
    You just gotta remember to not over cook those lows otherwise on a big system they'll drown everything out.
    For the most part, I think it's a plus as they've taught me to balance my mix quite well, always keepin in mind that the sub is there, and i'm just pushing enough through so that the mix sounds nice.
