    I have a different mixcube set... too small sounding IMO, but avantones should have a bit more low end. A pair of regular ported studio monitors will be better.

    I have some ported studio monitors, but they tend to get a bit loud. I was thinking of something I could place nearby to keep the volume down. 90Hz doesn't seem too far off a normal amp, or would I be missing out on some key frequencies?

    I'd buy a Roland CM30 instead. I have used mine as a mini PA for acoustic and vocals loads and it's very versatile.

    The Avetones are not a 'nice' sounding monitor, but they are very revealing.  The philosophy is one of - if a mix sounds good on a Mixcube it will sound good on anything.

    There's a review from Sound on Sound here.

    That would be the main purpose of getting one, but I was thinking of dual-usage.
