Good monitors you can easily afford.
Featuring a cutting edge designed aluminum woofer and a 1" silk tweeter, the KRK ST6 studio monitor offers exceptionally accurate, smooth response and high power handling, without producing ear fatigue. Standard magnetic shielding makes placement simple in virtually any studio environment.
The ST6 monitor features 7/8" MDF cabinet construction to control sound reflection and standing waves within the monitor, while a double-layer anodized aluminum cone offers extremely low distortion. Carefully molded woofer beauty rings improve midrange frequencies while advanced dual-port tube design creates improved air flow for rich, solid bass.

I've been using these for several years now and have gotten use to them. They are an excellent alternative to spending a lot of money for higher end monitors. The bass response is clear and yes, you can feel the air. Nice detailed midrange and crisp highes. They sound good a low and moderate volumes which is where you should be mixing anyway. They will start to distort at real high volumes for which I have (and most studios) a bigger set of monitors for LOUD.
The first thing I noticed about the KRK ST6 was their weight. They're well-packed and a lot heavier than they look. That's a good thing. The cabinets are attractive but unobtrusive (in both looks and sound). They seem to disappear, both on my desk and in my mixes. Bass response is tight and even below the rated 68 Hz, the response is fairly realistic. I've felt air on my face from the ports but have never discerned any port noise. MoPads (or similar isolation measures) are highly recommended if you want to get the best out of these (or any other) monitors. The highs are articulate and have never been harsh or overly fatiguing. The sound overall is detailed and - after some experimentation with placement and volume levels - staging is impressive and realistic. Even when you turn your head to the sides, the instruments are locked where the mixing engineer intended them to be. These monitors are a good "budget alternative" to more expensive monitors. I haven't done any A-B listening (which is next to impossible with near-field monitors on a five-foot DAW mixing desk) but the ST6 sounds as good to me as the Event PS8 where it counts (50Hz and up) and is perhaps tighter than the PS8 in the 60-180 Hz range. If you already have a decent low-power amplifier and a limited budget for monitors, you could do far worse than these.
I've been recording with some bose speakers and bought these to help with the mastering and recording without headphones.The KRK ST6 passve monitors were in the right price range and I have a nice amp to drive them. I'm recording DAW with Sonar 6 and I was very impressed with the sound of these monitors. I don't think you can find a better monitor for $. I was recording a 51 Martin with vocals and with my eyes closed it was so close to hearing the real thing it was nice. Nice articulation. Running some older tracks through them they had good base response and got pretty loud and clean. I would buy these again if they spontaneously combusted.
