I have JBL PRX 715 but to loud for neighbors, need good quality monitor speakers

I am lost, I tried Pioneers monitor speakers a year or so ago and they were ok. Power would drop if I had it up loud at times. I went large with JBL PRX 715 and love them but my neighbors do not.

Looking for HIGH END (price range 1300.00 to 2,000.00 USD) monitor speakers. Something that is all around great, highs, mids, lows and good wattage but not 1500 watts loud like the JBL's.

I don't want MADE IN CHINA!!! Must be American or Japan made!

Must be XLR capable

I typed a response for you that was maybe AWESOME! But then I realized I didn't know what I was reeeeally replying to.

What are you using these for? Just playing back records? Or are you making records? Or?.. Rehearsing??

DJing, I want to be able to hear any mistake, off beat, to much highs, mids or lows... But want some watts behind it so I can crank it a bit to get a good feel of the mix too at louder volumes.

keep the PRX, just play less loud? being used to PRX you will be very dissapointed with any near /mid field monitor
I've got PRX735 with 2x XLF718 subs as my PA C monitoring RIG, totally different experience than smaller monitors

nice too! in general i would go for too big woofers as this will just be redundant to your PRX, as B monitor i would go for 5.25" maximum
