Morning all - I'm looking to buy some decent in studio monitors to play my helix through and do a bit of recording.  Currently playing through a small guitar combo amp and looking to upgrade.

 

For in home use, Can someone recommend a speaker set you have some experience with that you are happy with?  Just saw these:

3.5" monitors are a waste of time and money... you'll get next to nothing in terms of bass response, which will force you to boost the low end in all your patches. Then when you play through just about anything else, and/ or at higher volumes, the result will be a muddy, bass-heavy mess for which you will then have to compensate. 

 

Get the largest ones that the room/desk and your wallet will allow... but 5" is really the minimum.

Thank you both, I have done a search but wanted to specifically ask about the linked speakers... I found a set of JBL's which is a good name brand

that will kick it up to 6.5", should that be a noticable difference in quality?
