    Hi,
    You need to narrow it down a little more than that. But for starters try the parts express project showcase, <A HREF="http://www.rjbaudio.com">www.rjbaudio.com</A> and <A HREF="http://www.zaphaudio.com">www.zaphaudio.com</A>. You'll find lots of options..

    You'll need to be more specific, as Gordon stated. What low frequency extension do you need? Will you be sitting near field or far field? What's your budget on size and dollars?

    I used to sell the North American Sound "Studios." They were huge! Over 100 pounds a piece with 15" woofers with big horn midranges and horn tweeters. Then there are the studion monitors that are about book shelf sized that the mixing enginner has on his mixing board.

    Near field.
    Used for recording around my computer.
    Low freq: around 45hz
    Budget: $200 or less for speakers and crossover.

    Default Zaph BAMTM is a good start

    Dual DA175 and SEAS 27TBFC. Great sound on a budget. Sealed box response to 50Hz in a stuffed 1 cubic foot cabinet.

    I'd be glad to re-work the XO for less overall BSC since you'll be near-field.

    It's at Madisound.

    BTW, if it's nearfield on a computer desk close to wall, BAMTM may be too big. I'd consider Curt C's TriTrix MT: <A HREF="http://www.geocities.com/cc00541/TritrixMT_pg_1.html">http://www.geocities.com/cc00541/TritrixMT_pg_1.html</A>

    And when you consider that he wants to hit 45Hz, having the extra surface area of two woofers will keep distortion lower by far.

    If you want to keep it all from PE, you could substitute the RS28 for the SEAS 27TBFC. Again, I'd be glad to work up the XO for you.

    The OP hasn't said if he'd be recording extreme rock or the next Norah Jones. Sort of requires different monitors if your budget is limited.

    Yes, do try Zaph's MTM. I've been enjoying my build of them for a about a month now. Mine are mated with a 12" sub and they do very well.
