What do you think about PMC Twotwo 8's for mid field monitors?

I don't want to spend $10,000 or more for midfields. I heard the PMC line at the AES and I really liked them. I think they should be loud enough as well.
My studio is not that big where I have room for huge mid field monitors.
Has anyone heard them in a studio?

I have the PMC twotwo.6 model in a spare bedroom converted to a studio.

The PMC twotwo.6 model is exceptionally loud. I have been unable to make them clip (see the limiter go red) during casual listening to my music collection. They're much louder and more powerful than the old Focal Solo 6Be pair that I used to own (despite their specs beings similar).

One of my concerns during the testing of my PMC twotwo.6 was volume. I'm a synth guy. I like bass, and I like getting things loud (on occasion) while tracking. The twotwo.6 monitors are more than capable for my small room (approx. 20ft by 15ft).

I'd imagine the PMC twotwo.8 speakers will be more than suffice.

Regards,

Phil

PMC makes great monitors that are very clear, neutral and detailed. The Twotwo 8's are a great option for mid fields!

I recently heard the Twotwo 8's and were very pleased with the neutral sound,and depth they provided. Very easy to hear how minor ratio setting changes on a compressor affect a guitar or vocal track. Reverb tails information very detailed than most monitors I have heard. Great sounding monitors!
