    hi i came a long way in searching for the right monitors for my small 4x4 m room
    its very hard to find good monitors that translate good into my room,
    first thought of ns10 but there lacking sub support
    thats why i am asking this question,i m ainly produce rnb,hiphop,dance and electronic music and was searching for the right monitors,a friend told me that it is better to buy some small nearfields like 5" or 6" and give them a subwoofer,because of my 4x4m room (16qm)

    I would be very happy if someone could give ma an advice on this
    thx a lot

    greetings :cool: :wink:
    and to everyone a happy new year :D

    If you can afford them, the new 8000-series Genelecs would be a good choice for you. They´re extremely "fast" and accurate, which gives you very good control over transients, still they sound punchy with a very detailed mid-range and a fantastic stereo image. They have (for the size of the monitor) an impressive low end due to their new technology and my experience is that they´re not that sensitive to their environment, should be useable even in bad rooms. I´m very happy with mine.

    A small, square room is a worst case condition. There are hundreds of postings about monitors that can be found in the archives if you use the search function. It would be very wise of you to use it.

    Great monitors work well with all types of music and are not really music type specific. What you want to focus on is how to use monitors in a small square room, and how you should modify/treat a small square room which is way more important.

    Just because you can't find a specific thread, that doesn't meant that your not going to find very valuable info that can still be a big help and educate you in general at the same time. It is common to not find exactly what your looking for yet stumble onto other things that may or may not be realted to your problem that you can learn from and make use of. Make a commitment to invest the time to read and research and soon you will be able answer more questions that you ask...

    AudioGaff is dead right. Your room is the only serious problem you have. There are many excellent small monitors that can do the job for you. However, that room will most probably make any investment you do in studio monitors pretty worthless. On the other hand, you CAN make the room useable, but you will have to do some serious research and some "room decoration". The persistent issue here is that you will still have restrictions on how much bass you can unleash in that room.

    Fix the room first, then choose some nice small monitors that can do the job for you until you move your studio to a better location.
