    Looking for a portable monitor speaker

    I'm looking for small portable monitor speaker I can setup next to my turntables. Im behind the main PA's so cant hear much and need a good monitor. I'll be playing in a open air space for the next few months and volume on main PA's is pretty low.

    10 pounds or under
    under $150
    XLR or 1/4

    Thanks for any ideas!

    I don't think it's possible to buy a quality powered speaker for $150. A "not very loud" PA system could still produce enough SPL behind it that a studio monitor isn't suitable here... it simply won't get loud enough. The cheapest thing I'd suggest is the Alto TS308.

    I use one of these. I've no idea how loud it goes or how good the bass is, I haven't tried. I find you mainly need a bit of treble to mix, you have the bass already from the main speakers.

    I think it was about 50 cheaper when I bought it.
