Also, I noticed with my last mix project coming back from mastering that the bottom (kick , sub and electric bass) was balanced but not enough. So the next time I had to mix I purposely put on too much bass for the mixx in my room. In the car the sound was closer to what I would want in a final mix. I feel that perhaps a monitor with more lower mid and bass detail would help me to get everything just right Also the room could need more treatment. The cone movement of the woofer is showing too much 80 hz and I know I've put too much 80 hz. Then in the car it sounds like it's supposed too. Any help please.

i have the m1 actives mk2, and i like em - but really didn't end up liking them for mixing until i picked up the sub. i got the matching s1 active subwoofer and my mixes have been better since.

try investing in something like that first...just my opinion.
