Hi all! First time posting here and, I hope I'm not sounding like a burden already but, I'm in a dilemma: I need to know which problem to solve first.
A.) Currently using M-Audio BX5a Deluxe monitors (terribly colored and innacurate). Was thinking of replacing them with a pair of Yamaha HS8's to match my HS8S.
B.) My space is a small live/control room with ALL sorts of obstacles. It's roughly 12'x17' with a 7' ceiling ("yikes" already, I know). It has exposed drywall for every wall, drop-ceiling tiles, a thin entrance door that makes placing bass traps in that corner impossible, another thin entrance door into an almost-soundproof isolation booth and, to top it all off, two (covered) 1' ceiling ducts that jut down about 8-10" and run about 8' and 11' along the middle of the ceiling. I'm in the middle of making a 3D model of it and will upload it when it's finished.
My take is this: $20,000 monitors would sound like garbage in this room in its current state, never mind $700, yet treating the room is a whole hell of a lot more expensive (guesstimate puts it around $2,000?) and may just end up showing me that the room is hopeless.
Any salty dogs want to help a pup out? What's your take on my situation?
