This probably sounds weird, but I have been using a bose wave radio as a monitor on projects I record for my band. It worked pretty good, but I wonder if it is not a good idea as stuff tends to sound fuller through these speakers then most other speakers. So I'll mix a song down to cd, put it in the cd player in my truck and then be like "were did the fullness go?" My guess is people are going to say I sould buy some monitors. Just wondering what people think.
