Okay, I looking into some studio monitors, my budget is around 200-250, and am wanting something that is very accurate and easy to mix with. I'm only interested in active monitors. Bass response is not super important, because I have a sub I could add, looking into something with a 5-6inch woofer, to get a decent bass response, because I will be mixing without a sub for a while until I round up a new amp.
How are these?

M-Audio's Studiophile line are a great set of monitors for the price. I have the AV40s ($200 list price) with 4" woofers. Pretty clear response in that range, but also have a decent bass response with a sub with the rear mounted reflex system.

I think there was just a thread about this if you want to search for it.

Yeah I seen it, just thought I would try to generate a little more input, there really aren't to many studio monitor threads.

The Alesis would be my pick. Any reason you're only interested in active?

Its cheaper, take up less space, and buy the time I spend 100-200 dollars or more on a decent power amp I will have nothing left to buy the Monitors.

Fair enough. The M-Audios are the standby, but I've noticed alot of grounding problems with them. If it has to be those three, the Alesis would be the way to go. Go to GC and check out some of you can.
