My girlfriend and I love house and rap music. I own many older speakers from Energy (RC70, Pro 22, RC 50), Mirage 390is, etc. The Mirage 390is is our favorite because the bass is in your face and makes us dance. I think I prefer a slightly warmer sound to avoid fatigue. I haven’t tried a horn I like.
I’m shopping for small bookshelves for my bedroom. I have to hide them under a 12 inch high bed-frame due to WAF. It’s the only room I’ve had to compromise on, all the others have huge speakers. Price limit is 1000$ but I want kick-ass bass!
I’m looking at a lot of different options and it’s really confusing. Some people say using KRKs for EDM is wonderful, others say they should just be used for production.
KRK Rokit 5 G3
JBL LSR 305 MKII
I assume many of you will suggest non-powered speakers, I am okay with this, I have a NAD and Nuprime IDA-8 that are possible pairing options. I’m leaning towards a powered speaker largely to try something new. I’ve heard the KRK ROkit 5 G3 at a couple parties and was extremely impressed but they are older and I’ve heard a lot of great things about Kanto, Fluance, and many others. What should I get? (12 inch height maximum)
Also would getting a powered monitor with room correction help with being hidden under the bed?
