8" Studio Monitors or Add a Sub?

Hi Guys.

I'm having monitoring dilemma's. maybe someone can give me some advice.

I have a treated room, but was having standing wave issues. I'm fairly confident that we fixed that issue. Added some absorption and diffusers, a ceiling cloud, and repositioned the monitors. the bass response has returned.

We need to know what is going on in the low end around 80Hz and below.

Do you think a pair of decent 8" monitors, I'm looking at the Event Precision 8's or the Event 8XL. Or since I have a pair of Dynaudio bm5A's would getting the matching sub achieve the same thing as 8" monitors?

I can get the 8" monitors for alot less than the sub. but was just wondering what you guys thought about this

The room is a 10 x12 rectangle. So not a huge room......
