Monitors Recommendation

Hey guys,
I'm looking to purchase a set of monitors for my home studio that can plug into my interface (XLR Left/Right). I don't want to spend more than $500, but would actually like to keep the price in the $200 range if possible. I'll be using them for hip hop music. Any suggestions?

KRKs are a good starting point, as long as your room is right!

When someone says hip hop I think they're gonna need some serious low end. The equator D5 are 300$, decent sounding but with very bass heavy music the ports may fart a bit. Other than that, I think there's nothing else decent enough that stays withing yout budget.

If I were you I'd wait to have at least a 2-300$ more, 800$ will buy a decent set of monitors with decent low end representation, anything less than than and it may be too much of a compromise.
