    So... I'll be living in a small apartment for a year or so. Since I can't have my amp or recording setup there, I am planning on having a decent sized mono speaker and have the output from my logic in my laptop to go to the speaker in case a friend of mine comes over to play guitar or something.
    I'll be using an amp simulation. What should I get? Will any full range mono speaker do it?

    With just one cabinet you will lack any stereo signal (back tracks, minus ones and the like), but it's doable. You'll at least be able to sum the left and right channel in mono into the same speaker (this sounds good most of the times :) ).

    The cab has to be active of course, or you'll need an external poweramp.

    One of the issues you'll have to face is that "FRFR" is a label that means almost nothing, so you'll have to seek something with good specs that sounds good.
    I'd look for some big monitors you can buy singularly, so if one day you feel like owning a couple you'd just have to buy a second one.

    What is your budget?

    :)
