The Fostex PM-2 8" Powered Studio Monitor - Pair are equipped with ample power and designed with a wide sweet spot. The PM2 has the versatility to handle any studio application. Thanks to careful engineering, sound remains natural and transparent across the audio spectrum, even at high SPLs. Features 240W of power, 2 internal amplifiers for pristine bi-amplification, UFLC one-inch soft-dome HF unit, 8" LF woofer, HF gain control, overall volume control, and a 0dB/-3dB/+3dB switch for the LF unit.
The LF drivers have been developed to obtain extremely pure music reproduction by employing the latest technology in cone material. The cone uses a mixture of cut and milled fibers that are made from aromatic polyamide. It is then impregnated with resins to simultaneously achieve high rigidity and optimum damping. The cone also has an olefin film thermally adhered to its surface to control frequency response and to establish long term reliability. The center dust cap is made of non-wood cellulose material and is also impregnated with resin. The voice coil is made of super-high purity copper wire to achieve extremely low distortion. (<0.05% THD @50W/6?)
The one-inch soft dome tweeter employs Fostex's UFLC technology (Poly Urethane Film Laminated Cloth) to achieve lightweight and high-stability performance.
The amplifiers are precisely calibrated to match the performance capability of the drivers. Both drivers are powered by specifically matched amplifiers--120W RMS for the woofer and 120W RMS for the tweeter.

I bought these speakers about 4 months ago, they were about a 100 dollars cheaper then too, im not so sure why the price went up. They are very good very loud and have a very awesome low end to them, the only problem i had was when i turned up the tweaters one of them blew out, and i havent been able find a replacement nobody sells parts for these speakers, other than that good speakers good price.
These monitors are great, huge sound. Don't be afraid to get them for the small studio because these babies are just as clear turned down as they are turned WAY up!
These replaced another set of 8? monitors. I have a small mixing area in my studio with PM1?s for primary mixing. PM2?s are used after primary and secondary mix at a slightly greater distance for checks and balances. Both sets of monitors are used for film mix and mastering as well as Foley insertion, but also mix/ master audio CD?s as well.They are very flat with ample adjustment on either end of the Hz range and provide an excellent representation of audio with no coloring. My PM1?s have 2000+ hours and have never failed. I?m hoping the PM2?s will give the same performance.With larger studios, the PM2?s provide a great primary mixing tool but could use good stands to enable them to perform to their fullest. I use them at a closer range for shorter periods of mixing. If you mix in smaller periods, you will find them great even at nearfield ranges. A bit tiring for long 8+ hour sessions close up. All in all, you can?t beat the price and quality of either monitors, PM1 or PM2.
