Question Speakers VS Monitors

So,
my band finally got a private rehearsel space.
All we need now is a PA.
Would it be better to get regular speakers or monitors?
What's the main difference?
It's a pretty small room if that makes any difference.
And then what kind should we get, how big/powerfull?

Rock on
DWL

Speakers...

Monitors are for mixing/hearing yourself in a live situation.

Monitors are more for studio recording and mixing as they don't colour the sound. I'd probably suggest getting normal speakers. The size you need will depend on your genre. I'm assuming your in a rock band, so I'd recommend 200w speakers.

Stage monitors are for hearing yourself while you perform. Is that what you're trying to do?

If you've only got the cash for a mixer and a speaker or two, get good speakers. That way you can use them in live situations, or if you play somewhere where there is already a good live setup, use them as your own personal state monitors. I have two PA speakers that I've used for that very specific purpose for 2 years now.
