I'm not looking for anything expensive because this is actually for my 3rd system. Just looking for BIG bang for the bucks! With that said, has anyone used studio monitor type speakers for home use? What are the pros and cons?

Looking to spend $300 tops (yea I know, getting ready to hear "if you spend another $50 or $100 or $200 or..." But I l aready spent a few grand more on my other speakers). Was considering these:

20/20™ V2 Direct Field Monitor

"As the favorites of the music press, project studios, and recording professional worldwide (such as recording engineer extraordinaire Francis Buckley, who took the very first pair of 20/20bas™ and won a Grammy for the project he mixed on them), the 20/20bas have set the standard for excellence in biamplified direct field monitor systems. And now the legacy continues with the 20/20bas V2."

Hmm. That tweeter's waveguide looks a lot like the EOS WaveguideŽ developed by JBL for its LSR Series of amplified studio monitors. If the tweeter itself is any good, it will sound terrific controlled by that acoustic waveguide. Problem is, I don't know how the tweeter itself performs.
