The best studiomonitors with 7-9inch Woofers?

I can't decide.

Adam A8X
Genelec 8050B
EVE Audio SC208
KRK V8S4

Which has the most neutral sound?

Maybe add HEDD to your list also.

Out of the OP list I'd go with the Eve, the HEDD is another option if you're into ribbon tweeters on studio monitors.

These are quality options anyway..
There might be others to mention though..

KS digital C5 reference, ATC scm20 (another planet..of course also from a price perspective), genelec the ones (8331 or 8341), Earthworks Sigma 6.2 with a good amp (used could be found in the price bracket of the monitors mentioned above by the OP, more or less).

Highly recommend Eve SC208!

Working on them for years now and compared to their competitors these are by far the most accurate monitors out there. (not only in this mid range price area)
Tightest Bass, crystal clear mids and highs. Ears don´t fatigue because the ribbon tweeter on the Eves are really silky compared to the old Adam ones.

Stereo imaging is insane and because of the DSP you basically get a perfect matched pair which adds alot to the performance when you think about phasing and stuff like that.

One of the few monitors where I don´t have the feeling that i cant judge the low end without using a subwoofer or much bigger setup.

You should really A/B them if you have the chance to....

Best bang for the buck IMO!

Since you didn't say how many of those woofers per speaker there are also the ATCs 45 and 110 as well as the Quested VH3208.

Golden Ear Aeon 3's. Designed by Sandy Gross. I use the Aeon 2's here. Worthy of an audition.

Suppose it saves you eq'ing that in yourself if smiley curves are your thing.
