Package deal from where?
Ew, yuck. No Fostex monitors...
Better to buy individually? I was thinkin krk rocket 5?
I'd hold out for rockit 8's. I own both. Found my KRK 8's for $300 used. I mainly mix with them. Gave the 5's to my son. Low end on them is so hyped, it would take forever to get mixes to translate.
What style of music are you looking to record?
Well I'm all about even tones lol. Hate ppl that worship bass. Is it really that big a differnce? I mainly mix for a friend and record my own acoustic peices and some shred electric stuff.
In my opinion, definitely that big of difference. It is not that the 8" have more bass. Quite the opposite. The 8" have much more clarity, and the low end is controlled, where as the 5" ones seem to try to 'fake' being big. Low end adjustments are false when using them.
I have heard people talk of the 6" KRK's being a decent compromise, but I haven't used them myself.
Ok are there any other monitors that are like 300 for both?
Not new. I would seriously look for used and get into the 5-$700 range of monitors for your $300.
OT: @jimmys69 I bought one of those ART preamps (the earlier model you have in the middle) from a guy cheap because "one channel" just hum. Works fine with the mic input, not the guitar input. The combo connector went bad. Can't say it is a "common fault" but I've read of other instances, just something to look out for.
