I've been doing an extensive search on studio monitors and the monitors that seem to give you good sounds for the price are the KRK.

I jsut want to know if their there is a dynamic difference of sound between the 5s, 6s, and 8s.

I'm going to go my local audio store soon, but i just want to know what you guys think.

Also i'm thinking of getting the KRK 10 Subwoofer to get that kick sound.

Thanks guys!

bigger speakers for bigger rooms, if you're in a bedroom type setup, i'd go with the 6's....if it's a bigger room get the 8's.

i personally don't care for the KRK's, the top end on them isn't that great, i'd end up with everything sounding 'glassy' if i mixed on them.

I just purchased the KRK 6's about a week ago and love them. So yesterday, I purchased the 10S Subwoofer and for under 600 bucks I have a tremendous system for mixing. You want the THUMP, you got it. The RP6's are very flat sounding which for mixing is exactly what you want. No coloring of sound, no extended highs or lows. Great system for the price.

Well I don't know WYD, my KRK's are the result of using almost 2 dozen different monitors before settling on them. I do have the Bigger K-Roks though with the 8's in em. I don't need any subwoofer with them that is for sure. The front porting and cabinet make for a very flat well wounded tone here. I don't have any problem with glassy mixes. Only when I want them I guess. But if you go with the non-active monitor's make damn sure you have enough power for them. A good rule is an amp with double what the monitor needs. I just tested a new reference amp that is double what I need and boy do they sound sweet now.
