I am a hobbyist and I have a 10'by 12' room bedroom to mix in. I use stand alone recorder, a Zoom 1266mrs. For monitors, I am using Hi Fi speakers 25 year old JBl speakers. I have a home stereo Pioneer Amp bought for $99 from Electric Avenue. I've read several places Hi speakers were not designed for mixing. I'm looking to buy a pair of Studio Monitors. Since I have the Pioneer Home receiver,can I use that with passive monitors? Or should I buy Active monitors? What monitors do you reccomend under $300? Should I buy a seperate subwoofer? What monitors do the the people on the recording forum use?
