Both are complete shit if you're doing anything with sound production. & you generally want small sizes for smaller rooms. So if it's for music then save your money for something that will actually be worth it. At least something with a flatter frequency response. Otherwise your wasting your money.
I only have around 500 to spend, and they'll be my first monitors, but what do you think about the size, do any of you guys have experience? Because there are 5, 6.5 and 8 Inch, the 8 inch is too big sou i wouldn't buy it, so the good area would be around the 5 or 6.5 Inch, is there a big difference?
>>45312340 theyre both pretty flat and work perfectly fine for amateur production
>>45312411 5 or 6 are both small and will be small enough for a small room, i run krks in a ~12x12 bedroom they dont take up much room but obv you will need a spot to put them so i would worry about where you're actually going to put them not the size of the room
>>45312411 Go with 5" (even though you never specified how small the room actually is) but your still wasting the money regardless especially if you plan on mixing/mastering they flat out don't work for that type of stuff.
>>45312602 For complete shit results they will work. With good ears you will hear what's coming out of the speakers, they are far from a flat response. & I guess if you're okay with making almost "decent" recordings yes they work, but if you actually have standards and are serious there worth shit.
>>45312930 krks are not very bassy at all they are close to reference monitors so if you want to listen to music dont get them but if you want to produce music do get them, contrary to what elitist retard who doesnt produce music is telling you
>>45313572 also for anyone that cares the bx5as have a really hardcore "sweet spot" that you have to be in but once you adjust properly its like holy shit these little fuckers are so crisp , while the Bx8a sound really good anywhere in the room and better in the sweet spot
>>45312231 take the rotkit 6 if you have a really big room, even take the 8".
I would only take the 5" if I'd do music that doesn't has lots of focus on bass. But for electronic music the 5" lacks of bass range.
For the Yamahas, they hare a bit milder. The KRKs seem to punch more, which might not be necessarly a better thing. But I like hard electronic music and that goes well with KRK. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2r1bWPuPpow
But the best thing you can do is actually go into a shop with music you know well on your phone and listen to them there. Thats the best advice one can give you. Everything else is quite the own flavors of 4chan folks and that is quite subjectiv,... as is mine.
> what size do you thing would be best for a small room? speakers don't really care about the size of the room. speaker size is a compromise between volume and LF extension vs cost and space. smaller rooms are much more difficult to tame than larger rooms. heavy curtains and furniture help but some acoustic treatment and careful planning go a long way.
> Yamaha HS5 these have a very "smiley face" response. not much clarity through the midrange. they don't get very loud. the HP7 aren't any better.
> KRK RP5 these have a much smoother response than the HS5 but still have a bit of smiley face. they don't have a lot of low end (IIRC they fall off really fast below 80Hz) because they're meant to be used with a subwoofer. they get a little louder than the HS5 but not by much. people blow them up regularly.
in conclusion, they're both cheap consumer products. glorified computer speakers. don't kid yourself into thinking these are "professional" monitors with a "flat response" because they're not even close.
> does anyone here have experience with the maudio carbon monitors? anything by m-audio is cheap consumer stuff. they don't sound too bad for what they are but you get what you pay for.
>>45313707 why do ppl always bring shit up like this up, yes its possible to make good music on shitty setups, Skrillex made scary monsters and nice sprites on a laptop with one KRK, but its nice not to have a shitty setup, which is what this conversation is about, making a not shitty setup. that's like going up to a contractor using a excavator and being like , "i could dig that hole with a shovel, pussy" its like yea i could too or i can use this hundred thousand dollar excavator cuz i have it and its awesome
>>45313889 >skrillex WABWABWOO WEE WAAAHH!! WABWABWABWABDOOOOOODEEEEEKAKAKAKA! I wish I could produce the sounds that ableton gave me with such artistically precise execution. Mine sound more like: >weebloowababababa kooo kaaaa beeebobovovo moomoowabab paah :'(>>45313889
