Default 2 way studio monitor.

Hi people, first i want to thank you those who will find time answearing. I trully appreciate that.

1 : i need studio monitors ( 5.25 - 6.5 ) im thinking to build one's or to buys one's. im aware of the problem's, p.s ive been building speakers since im a kid, but just really experimenting. have some sort of experience.

at the moment im using some oldschool HI-FI gear i won't mention the speakers - but i have a Denon PMA 380 amplifier ( made 95-98yr) has direct-drive switch, to eliminate EQ's and all the switches, knobs. to get the flat sound.

ok it was ok untill i realised it's crap.( for what i need now) i have it since im 13, ive been using the amplifier with wide range of speakers from floor to bookshelf.

Question 2: im selling the speaker's and an amp after few days, is it possible to soften the amplifier's bottom end ( i know there are hard and soft speaker's) so i might be on a right way, because i can choose soft LF speaker ' but...then the problem's arrive. ive no facilities to test the result. i need a flat sound.

i also can buy pretty damn good 5'25 monitor's for 110 euro so...people, just a quick idea if u dont mind! THANKS

Most studio monitors have the amplifier built in. The more expensive ones have seperate amps for the woofer and tweeter.

Fond memories of the LS3/5a. One of the first truly high quality speakers in its day. Been years since I heard them, but still hold a fond place in my memory.

The SA1's are on the same line.

The powered M Audio pro sound monitors I heard a few months ago, sounded fantastic for brief listen at store, about $1k msrp/pr, woven carbon fiber midbass IIRC, might have been D'Appolito but not sure...I'd consider them very strongly before building anything.
my 2c.
