    Speakers recommendation...?
    Not to pricey, not to cheap, for my "Bedroom" setup...

    the Rokits, seem to be what a lot of people use... im thinking about getting some, are they enough in the low end spectrum?

    Currently my Alesis's cant handle the bass frequencies and sound horrid when the mixer is turned anywere near half way.

    would 8s be better or can the 6's handle?

    I have the M-Audio BX8, and they are beasts. Great low and hi ends, although they are quite big so make sure you have room.

    City_boy07, I've used KRK's and the 6's should be fine, especially if you don't have the room for 8's. The 8's will just be able to handle a little more low end, so I suppose it depends what you're using them for.

    Always well me dude! Hope you're too. I'll try get that track over asap. I played it at the weekend and it definitely needs some tinkering. The bass sounded a bit flat and it needs a pad in there somewhere. Just want to make the changes before I send it out. Been working on a nice one lately that is coming along well. Will send a sample soon.

    If you have the cash, definitely go for KRK's. There's a reason they are the market leader. I only have the M-Audio ones because I got them free, although I was very surprised at how good they actually are.

    If you feel like splashing the cash, then I get recommended the Alesis' monitors quite a bit.

    Cheers dude. Played at an afterparty in Leeds, was decent. Was amazing dropping my remix of The Beatles - Twist & Shout and everyone joined hands and started doing the Waltz. Very strange.

    Let me know about Antwerp dude, would love to play. My friends play at Rum & Bass there now and again.
