First of all, hello to everyone as this is my first post on these forums although I've been lurking for a while I've read through the existing monitor threads but would like to add details about my setup/future setup, music style and budget so I can get the best information. The stuff I've already decided on are: a Behringer DDX 3216 Digital desk w/ 2 ADAT interface cards (found a very good deal on this and it's probably the closes to my needs) RME DIGI 9652 HDSP or RME HAMMERFALL LE 9636 on my PC I have anywhere up to 900-1000 Euros to spend on monitors. The music I mainly work with/mix is punk/hardcore/metal. I was looking at the Genelec 8030APMs but all the reviews I've read include the subwoofer as well. I have worked a couple of times on the older 1029s (which I believe the 8030s are replacing) and they seemed lacking at the bottom end without the sub. I've also heard good things about the M-Audio BX8s and since much cheaper I could probably get the matching sub for the same money as the pair of Genelecs. Any other suggestions or comments? Thanks in advance, Alex M.
