    Go active.

    Most 6" active monitors will give you the result you need. KRK, Alesis, ADAM, Yamaha etc.

    Have you thought about going used? One budget monitor nobody has mentioned is the Behringer Truth 2301a. Yeah, they're Behringer, but they actually sound decent. They have a 9.75" driver, kind of overkill, and can reproduce lows pretty well. They can be tailored to small rooms with a bunch of crossover switches built in. I've seen them as low as $150 for the pair on craigslist. They're certainly not great, but they provide a lot of bang for the buck.

    It's an 8.75" driver. And behringer is coming out with some new completely redesigned monitors, so i'd rather go for them.

    But he already bought some

    Just thought I'd report back. Having used my RCF Ayra 5s for a week or two now, they are absolutely outstanding!!!!

    The best monitors I've ever owned and has a real richness to the sound and I don't notice any obvious missing bass, even when tried running things like Daft Punk, Knife Party etc through them.

    Amazing monitors for anyone looking for some and I'd highly recommend them!

    Still waiting for GC to stock the Behringers and put them on display :|

    Hesitant about buying Behringers without trying them out first.

    Go for the RCF Ayra 5s. I've spent a week listening to all sorts through them to burn them in. They sound fab in all music styles through iTunes and Spotify and even games and films sound fab.

    Now they've come into themselves they have a thick bass, super clear mids and the highs sparkle with zero harshness. All in all, we happy and perfect small monitors.

    Bout to buy a pair of Yamaha HS50Ms for 180 shipped

    Pretty hard to turn them down at that price. Although I just now noticed that Yamaha released the 2nd generation HS5,HS7, HS8 :/
