I was looking to get a single powered speaker in about $250-300 range. The reason is I need somewhat of a "monitor" and if I wanted to could double as one at a gig or super small house party. I'd also be taking this along with me to college once I transfer. I'm not against buying used at all. A few I've looked at are the JBL Eons, QSC K etc. Also if it came down to it adding wouldn't be bad either!
