Studio Advice

Hey guys hows everyone doing? I hope I'm posting this in the right section...

I've finally come up with enough cash to buy some monitors I've got a roughly 1k-1.2k budget, I also want to buy a new interface - I'm looking at the NI Komplete audio 6 also. Maybe you could tell me if these will be too bass heavy for my room?

So my room is '20ft-ish deep by '10ft-ish wide by '7"10-ish?. I'm in the basement of my house, Left and back walls are full concrete while the right side of my room is half concrete half regular. All walls are "Finished" though. Now I've got my bed on the bottom wall going horizontally, It pretty much fills the entire wall, besides that and an armoir(sp) I have my new desk which is "30inches deep by '8ft wide.

I guess my questions are -

Is the placement of my desk the best position in the room or could I do better? I've heard concrete and bass are a bad combo, would I be better placing my desk on the right side that has a regular wall with no concrete behind it?

And I'd also like to know for the Mackie HR824's I'd like to buy, do you think I'd be better off getting something with less bass since I've got concrete walls? The room isn't very "treated" and I don't have bass traps or diffusers, though I'd like to get into this stuff soon.

Thanks in advance for any help and suggestions. Take it easy!
