I think those will work very nice. Though they are a bit small so may have problems with low end (bass reproduction)...
Though I was looking through these and similar M-Audio monitors and was tempted to get them.

These would be a good place to start and would have good mid range and high range but as was mentioned, they would not have great bass response so you would really need to pair theme with a subwoofer to get good sound reproduction. M audio sells a matched set as well as separate sub woofer. It would ramp up the cost a bit but would be well worth it. If you try to mix without a sub using small speakers, your mixes will end up very very bass heavy when played on full range systems.

There is an old saying "Whatever your mixing speakers are good at, your mixes will be bad at" So if your mixing speakers are really good at mid range and high range, then your mixes tend to sound flat when played on systems with a flat e.q. curve. If your speakers have great bass, then your mixes may lack bass when played on a system with a flat e.q. response.

Ideally, you want your speakers to be "neutral" without too much boom, or tweet. That way, you know what you are getting in your mix. If your speakers accentuate any part of the sound spectrum, it will be obvious when you play the mix on other systems.

I use two pair of monitors, teh KRK ROKIT 6 and Alesis MK2.
Both are paired to a subwoofer. I go back and forth between them when mixing which is a common approach. Mixing on just one pair of speakers can yield uneven results when played back outside of your mix room.

These speakers are nice, and they can be used for monitoring, but they will lack bass. However, most monitors in lower price range will lack bass, even the ones that are 5x more expensive than these. So getting these is not a big problem, as long as you have some good headphones, and a spare 2.1 regular speaker system for checking out how the mix sounds.

I have those monitors! smile.gif

Have to agree with others, may be some problems with bass response, since it range starts at 100Hz, but overall the monitors work great. They are loud and precise for its size. If you are not a pro, and need some low-end monitors for mixing on PC, I would recommend them, since its price is also very low, and they worth every nickel. smile.gif
