    I've been looking on craigslist and I have the option to either buy the newer KRK VXT 4 (2 for $350) or the KRK RP-8 (2 for $300).
    The VXT's are smaller but more recent. The RP-8's are bigger but older.
    Both are in good/great condition...
    Any opinions?

    I have a pair of RP-5s and like them. They work well as monitors but aren't 100% sterile, making them useable as listening speakers as well.

    I use them in my wanna-be production rig and as booth monitors for my DJ setup.

    Keep in mind that KRK makes a studio sub matched to the RP series and I'm not sue if they've brought one out for the VXT series yet.

    I have a pair of RP-8s and they kick butt! They have plenty of bass for me, I doubt anything smaller would, and I'd probably then want a sub.
