Monitor Selection Help

Hi again! Haha.

I am looking to upgrade some of my studio stuff and right now I am using the Behringer MS16 "monitors" which I must say are pretty horrid, but that's what I got.

I am looking to upgrade to something that is actually worthy of being called "monitors." My price range is about $150.00.

First off, I have a couple questions. How big is the difference between powered and unpowered? If I get passive/unpowered monitors, will I need something to power them?

Overall, I'm wondering your opinion on the best pair of monitors for $150.00. I know I'm not going to get anything amazing, but I still want your opinion.

Thank you!
