Unfortunately I don't have experience with the V6 II but I am having VXT6 since a week in the studio replacing my old main monitors and the transition has been very smooth. These are great speakers - superb midrange, good bass and non-fatiguing highs. A highly recommend speaker, really!

excellent midrange, hole below 300? seems not excellent if there is a hole below 300...

the stuff above is excellent.. then there is this hole at about 800hz.. makes it difficult to adjust vocal level..

There's a (pretty) small dip in the 500 Hz region on the VXT6 in my experience (and room). But nothing I'd lose my sleep about. The Bass is really good (much better than on A7s for example) given their size and I don't find the High End overly harsh - more kinda sizzly. But non fatiguing in my experience.

They have some serious design flaws.. But somehow it works great for guitar/snare stuff.

And the quality of the components is.. Pfff

This thread isn't making me want to buy them. I have V4's and hate them. I think I'm gonna buy the HS80's in a couple of weeks.

I know both VXT6 and HS80 (I am having a pair of HS50 in the studio too) and would much prefer the VXT6 to the HS80 as a main monitor. The HS80 are good too, but too coloured and have a litte stressful highs I think.
Before I bought the VXT6, I checked The HS80, EX66 (very good at low levels but too piercing when turned up) and Adam A7 at my studio and thought the VXT6 was the best of the lot all in all. I just have them for over a week now, but mixed a song with them and started tracking this week for a band and so far I am really liking them. Don't know about what components they used and honestly I don't care as long as they stay alive and sound as good as they do.

Well i own them because it worked great on guitars, snares..

I have a pair of barefoots at hand and adam s3as..

I like the vxt6, but really not as mains. And if you buy them without sub (emu sub works great with them if you are on a budget) you are pretty much lost down there..

I had the vxt4,6 and 8 in our lab.. The smaller and the bigger one sound like crap..

The old V6 II's are better constructed, more accurate monitors in my opinion. I had the option of buying either, and I chose the V6 II's. You'll find quite often that large studios have a pair of these for seconds.

other v6 series 2 vs vxt6 opinions?

i'm interested in monitors with a good representation of mids, hi mids, low mids, so i'm interested also to other suggestions, but firstly i would like to know how vxt6 and v6 series 2 compares

no one use both or had v6 and now have vxt6?

thanks

old v6 you mean series II or the one with black woofers?

ok give me some other suggestion about monitors, but consider those things:

1 - midrange - low midrange - hi midrange - very well reproduction in this area, not like genelec or mackie.

2 - front ported bass reflex and cabinet design that designed to be less affected by the room

3 - fast transient response, not like genelec, mackie, dynaudio, more like ns10

ok obviously the price range is around there.
what about the V8 first version? and series II
or E8 first version (if i can find them cheap.......)

now tell me :D

Expose suck balls. The berillium tweeter does the same bs as with focals. You think you hear cristal clear hiend but in reality its not.,

look for older ADAM S2.5

if you like new, do yourselve a favour and safe money. There is always a compromise with cheap speakers.

Dynaudio BM6 are not slow, but they have a characteristic bump at 120hz and 6khz.

What kind of music and what size is your room?

cheers

the room is 10.5 x 17 feet height is 9, little less.

i don't like adam tweeter and i don't like dynaudio, they sound unreal to me

genre electronic, acoustic, rock, experimental :P

honestly i like the transient response of krk and also the mids, i use also ns10 and i would like to have a full range speaker with the same transient response of ns and the same way they have to guide you

I also had the V6 II's (yellow cones, charcoal cabinet, to clear any confusion on the plethora of different krk's out there, new and old) and had to sell them last year. As soon as I can, I will be hunting a pair down without hesitation. They were absolutely brilliant, nothing too over-the-top, tight and plenty of low end, incredible mids and very smooth and detailed highs, mixing on them was a joy. I highly recommend them if you can find a pair used.

I mixed on the V6 IIs for a couple of years and found them quite good. I found the mid-range revealing, and mixes done on them translate well. I'm mostly mixing in Dynaudio BM6As now, which I find to be a different sound. The BM6As and the V6 IIs are actually a good complementary pair for checking mixes. I've got my KRKs posted for sale here in the classifieds, but I'm tempted to keep them. I like the front ported design of the KRKs better than the rear ports on the Dynaudios. The V6 IIs seemed to be a pretty popular studio standard. I don't know anything about the VXT design or how the V6s might compare to them.

The KRK V6 series 2 are fine

I've been using my V6 series 2 for years...very revealing and accurate. Not familiar with the new VX6's but I'm satisfied with what I got. I also have the KRK v12s sub to compliment. Having the option of having a kill pedal really helps in comparing my mixes. In addition I use my NS10's for cross reference purposes.
