    Default Active monitors for home DJing

    Hi guys,

    I have some good speakers for producing but im now looking for some monitors for home DJing? I would like them to be small if poss as my room is tiny and i dont play that loud either. Im looking for something that will give me a nice normally listening level.

    ANy suggestions?

    Rokits seem to be the standard for what you're after.

    Cheers guys, I had a feeling these would pop up. I did look at the JBL Control 1 as they are small and wall mountable but the frequency range is crap.

    I'm looking at the alesis m1 520 as a cheaper alternative to the rokit 5's, they seem to get good reviews

    ...and if budget isn't so tight, take a listen to Genelecs.

    A friend of mine bought them, it's just pure garbage, even for the price.
    If there's one thing, out of all the gear you buy, on what you better invest "big" even at the beginning, it's the speakers.

    If you can afford them, something like the KRK's would be great.

    Personally I use a computer speaker setup. And while it's not as perfectly crisp as some of the better systems I've heard, it's honestly pretty decent. It can also output a huge amount of sound if I need it to, and having the sub is nice for a lot of the bass-heavy music I play. Something to think about at least.

    If you're not focusing on production, I'd say it's an affordable alternative to nice monitors. If you are doing production, that's a whole different game.
