Getting new speakers

OKay my speakers just broke but its i knew it was bound to happen since the left speaker was only catching the low frequencies for quite some time now which i suspect to be a blown twitter. And then i opened up my right speaker and one of the circuit boards cracked idk how but its whatever.

I am thinking about getting 2 jbl LSR325P speaker along with a JBL MSC1 volume control and im thinking of getting the new generation Mbox. What do you think? Any suggestions??

nothing fancy they were Samson MediaOne 4a speakers, which arent really made for music production, but they lasted quite long and help me learn while i started. Now that i am getting more in depth of learning mixing and what not, i need an upgrade for obvious reasons lol

I interpreted "suggestions" to mean "ideas other than the JBLs".

Thank you for discarding my suggestion after having asked for it.

BTW, I googled "LSR325P" as well as searching on the JBL site; are you sure you're searching for the right model number?

TheNext40, why don't you give War a call at Zen Pro Audio. He has a great selection of monitors from low(decent ones will probably never be less expensive than "sorta low", nevertheless, he is knowledgeable and can probably fix you up with something that is a value for the dough. Good luck.thumbsupthumbsup

JBL is a fine choice.

But there will be Genelec's in your price range then too,

But i'd get some Yamaha HS50's first. They are around 150 a piece and will help you improve your mix. They are the successor of the famed NS10's. They are active have the famous white woofers and have that mid bump wich will help you to get your mids right and create some vibrant sounding mixes.

I was also looking at the Yamaha HS50's look pretty decent. Its between the jbl and yamahas so far im leaning on the yamahas. I work on tons of synthy stuff and i own tons of yamaha products and they never disappoint me lol

I wanna get a pair of those hs50m's. HOWEVER until I get acoustic treatment how well does their on board eq/room correction work?
Would it suffice until I get treatment?
Thanks.

The EQ on the Yammies aren't exactly a game-changer for those of us without well-treated rooms. It still comes down to your ear, either way.

Get the monitors you guys want, regardless.
You'll get the rest figured out... hopefully sooner than later.

exactly lol i dont want eq on my speakers. My last speakers was completely inaccurate when it came to detailed frequencies. I had to mix TONS of **** OVER AND OVER again since it didn't translate well from different computers and devices. With the hs50's they tend not to exagerate anything, which means, if you get a sexful sounding mix in those speakers, it will translate great on other ones. lol

They aren't anything alike.

One is good, one is horrible.
