    Genius or folly? Bandmates will probably laugh at me.. what else is new :)

    Great for the bedroom or personal recording studio, but I don't think studio monitors could be loud enough. Most are near-field speakers. My KRK Rokit 8's are powered by 140 watt amplifiers in each monitor and they wouldn't be loud enough for a large room.

    Monitors are for near field listening not projecting to fill a room.

    It works fine for practicing by yourself, but if you try and get to band volume you're going to blow your monitors.
