At the moment, I run 12" passive monitors, for my live rig. All is fine, but I'd like to add a couple of active monitors to my inventory for backup. My budget is fairly small, and I see 10" active monitors (like the RCF ART 310a) are smaller and cheaper. I mainly work small venues, so smaller monitors would be good, and saving a few bucks is always good. But, I'm concerned that I will be loosing something by going with 10's Any comments to help me decide would be most welcome.
