KRK. Had the chance to A/B the KRKs, the Mackies & the M-Audios. The KRKs were the best of the 3, the Mackies were the worst. The KRKs were a lot flatter and clearer. The Mackies were very bass heavy which make it hard to mix

Well I assume the 8 is an 8" speaker then of course it is going to have more bass response than a 6" speaker, especially in this price range since they aren't going to be perfect flat.

If you have an untreated room then I believe the size of the speaker matters a lot because of bass response. If you are in an pretty open area you aren't going to want the 6" speakers. I am in a pretty closed area and my 5" are perfect. Put me in a huge room and the bass is gone and I am wishing I had an 8". If I had 8" where I normally mix and stuff I would have to turn the bass down a ton on the speakers.

I think rooms are something that don't get mentioned here as often as they should for mixing (especially when untreated).
