Just ordered new monitors. I hope I made right decision

Just ordered the Yamaha HS80m monitors. I'm stepping up from Tapco S-5's. I needed a bit more low end. I'm avoiding a sub at this time. I hope I like these things and they translate well. I'll have to re-learn these monitors during my mix stages.

Getting better monitors can help get more low end, but really it is more about the room acoustics then it is about the monitors (to a point). Do some searching on this site for bass traps. That really is where you should be focusing your attention.
I myself use NS-10s (no laughing heh ) and get plenty of low end out of them. Ok not sub bass, but my mixes translate just fine…
