There have probably been thousands of these threads already, but hey, speakers costs a lot of money and since you can't preview or tests speakers on the internet, I decided to come here and seek advice.
About a month back or so, I bought the Reloop ADM-5 Studio set. The sound coming out of the speakers that costed me 150 euro was definitely not what I was looking for, and in my opinion definitely not worth the money. After playing a heavy drum n bass tune, the low-end woofer even bulged in and I shat my pants. I quickly moved a vacuum cleaner around it, packed it up and send it the hell back. I then realized maybe studio sets are not what I'm after. I want to be able to put the speakers hard when needed and enjoy the bass that's coming out of it, which is a very important of drum and bass. Hence the word bass in there, hehe.
So I decided to buy PA speakers, along with a amplifier. Like this I can always upgrade to better speakers in the future, and add a sub woofer when I feel like it.
I came across this (you probably can't post links in here so I'll post the specs)
AMPLIFIER: "SkyTec 2 x 500W DJ PA AMPLIFIER SPL1000 WITH EQ" (100 euro)

As for speakers I'm not sure. Either this one, which comes as a set: (50 euros)

• Woofer: 8 "/ 20cm
Tweeter • 76 x 76mm

Sorry for the long posts, but I probably can't posts links to other websites. Haven't read up the rules yet. Thanks for reading this through and any advice or help is really appreciated as I don't want to run in the same mistake twice of buying a shitty set. Maybe I should also tell you I'm a beginner DJ and I also plan to use these speakers to throw little parties and stuff, so they're not only for personal use. Furthermore, I also produce my own music with Reason and Cubase.
Cheers and thanks for replying,
