Anyone have any opinion on these?

I want to connect them to my POD HD500...so is the only other thing I need a XLR 1/4" cable?

Anyone know the best place to get this cable as well?

Thanks!

They aren't really made for guitar. They're good though.

They're pretty flat (for what they are) which is what you want for a HD500. You could do worse.

If anything, I'd go for Rokit 6's. Much more neutral and worth the extra IMO.

Compared to a guitar cab, I guess the Rokit 5s are pretty flat, but compared to pretty much every other studio monitor in existence, they aren't. Since you're using them just to play your POD through, you'll be fine, but I'm not really sure what purpose they have outside of your bedroom. I'd get a single PA speaker, instead. Not sure if the Alto TS112A is available where you are, but its much louder than those Rokits ever will be, is very light for its size and sounds great.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

I always found them to be a bit harsh sounding for my taste, especially if you're just using them for guitar. Other KRKs are pretty decent but personally I'd say away from the all of the Rokkits. For a budget monitor I'd say go for a used pair of Yamaha HS80m.

for mention mine are 6"' not 5"'s. i like them.

i got them dirt cheap when they were being clearanced from gc. and it was open box, i think i paid around $250ish (as a pair) and tax.

i wasn't coming for studio monitors, actually a keyboard amp, the monitors did be better though, and were more versatile than i need.

i also wanted to consider them if i were to pickup a pod or something similar.

i am happy with my decision.
