Default Studio Monitors

Could somebody please look at this Schematic? The monitors are pretty decent but the drivers seem pretty econo class. I have some replacement drivers picked out but I want to be sure the amps are decent. Otherwise I'll dump these and buy something else.
Here is the link to the sevice manual and scematics.
Thanks

Those Yorkville are not very good. Bloated Mid and captain crunch tweets. The KRK i have are not much better but completely livable compared to those. Move up to the KrK V8 or V6 and the Yorkville will sound like a grade 10 science project in comparison.

Thats a KrK base model rokit 8 active studio monitor in my sig photo to the left.

I bought mine at L&M in Toronto. I didn't like the KRK good bass though. I usually filter my desk speakers above 60Hz. I wanted to buy Behringer Truth All the staff said "Yorkvilles are great"
I know that Long and Mcquade is Pretty tight with yorkville so I checked elsewhere and many pros swear by the yorkvilles. I had to open them to re-route a rattling cable and couldn't believe the cheap $10 Radio Shack drivers. I know that Cast frames and Kevlar isn't everything but at least with the Behringer I can have attractive looking junk. I am thinking about putting Morel Tweeters and Silver flute Woofers in these. The Boys at Solen in Montreal picked them out for me so thet'll be a good match.

Don't dismiss the cheap RS drivers out of hand... the 40-1197 & 40-1354 both perform WAY above their price-point (too bad they are gone now)

The manual doesn't tell us much... got any pictures (amps & speakers)?
