What did you do?'
I will have to decide of a pair of active monitors, I use many times EON also MAckie or EV;, what will you chose if you have to decide?? your opinions will decide a lot of what i think now, Now im with JBL EON;
Note,,, in further i will get some bass for my dj booth but meanwhile .. only a pair of actives,,,,,,

Yaxkin,
I have Tannoy Actives; the blue ones, they are very affordable and I think they sound great. Monitors are very personal though, its really what your ear is used to. If I was to mix on a pair or expensive Genelecs I would still want to refer to my Tannoys just to be sure, because I'm used to them. Some people swear by these and some people swear by those monitors. But my advice is to make sure you get "Active" monitors, so you dont need to deal with finding a reference amp.

suerte!

I have and love my Mackie SRM450s in my home rig.

The club I play at has the EONs and I'm just not fond of them - they dont really have the punch of the Mackies and don't perform as well at high SPLs.

These are, of course, not designed to be nearfield monitors so it is good to have them placed several feet away to really hear what is going on.

try out funktion one r1. not a bad speaker. i'm not shure if the active version is available yet, but if not it shoukd be out soon. it will be equipped with an mc amp, i guess.

eon is more garbage than a speaker.

you were asking, what one would choose, if he would have to decide. if i could spend the money for a pair of these, i would go for it. they sound good, much better than lots of stuff on the market, are compact and can be put on a telescope foot or hung vertical and horizontal, with a rotatable high section. so you can use them at home or pack them in your trunk for the next house party, basement party, bar or small club gig or as monitoring if you spin at a club that has bad monitors. fast and easy set up, good service etc. they're just more expensive than eon or similar. but you did not talk about budget limitations, you were talking about reference.

beside that, i would have some german recommendations, but these speakers are not distributed overseas, so probably not an option. german companys e.g. like fn, fohn or audio zenit deliver good quality speakers for reasonable prices.

and there are lots of people that still swear on the good old nexo ps15. not my choice, you might like to check out.

www.foeoen.de
www.fohhn.com
www.audio-zenit.de
www.syrincs.de
www.codaaudio.net

some links for you. some pages do not offer an english version. also the page of audio zenit is two years old. the guy behind it has some new products, like a 4 x 10" bass speaker. but that's not really what you're looking for. i have no experiance with coda audio, but i think "der geile ami" aka randy lost some good words about them.

actually, i have monitors from fn, but they are pretty old ones i got from ebay.

but wait, you were requesting active speakers. fn and audi zenit do not have active ones within their program. but you can often build one yourself by adding an active unit, if it fits.

I think what he meant to say is that the most of the new JBL stuff that is available to the US market is junk..... they (JBL) are still producing excellent products, just generally not offering them in the US... seems the real high end JBL is reserved for the middle and far eastern markets....

have you ever checked out the K2 S9800 reviews...
http://www.ultraaudio.com/equipment/jbl_k2_s9800.htm

JBL is still making some bad assed gear! but I ain't got 25K to blow on a pair of speakers.....

Eon

The Eons have been a massive sucess for JBL. Clever design within a specific price point. The JBL EON sub sounds OK and might be a option.

I'm not aware of Mackies being of better quality but its preference as both are popular products.

Not sure where this trend of rubbishing JBL is coming from. People want a pair of loud cabs for $1000 and Peavey,JBL etc offer a competitive product for the money. I doubt there are any holy grail spec components or build for that money. Yes the TR were rubbish but to a lot of people they made lots of noise and looked the part Peavey do speakers with piezo tweeters etc, Eminence make lots of noise for the money, Community will sell you chipboard cabs etc!

JBL LSR monitors=very much up there.
JBL SRX 700 line=ditto

Then we are on to very expensive 'Pro' pro lines. I don't care if they are the best or such but not really crap items?

r1

so, we had the r1 this weekend. dj monitoring on friday, accomplished with two subs under them on each side, and standalone as live monitoring on saturday. visiting artists where satisfied. you just have to really take care about the right angle, as with all f1-spaekers, the horns are really precise in dispersion.
