If bass is important, it would be worth waiting/saving for the larger LSR308s. Big difference in potential bass capability for filling a room between a 5" driver and an 8" driver.

Or, get the LSR305 and save for a sub. Subs are the best way to get killer bass smily_headphones1.gif

The roll off starts around 60hz. I just count the lines from 100hz. smily_headphones1.gif

I found one a little better it looks like it is about a -8dB drop.

Making it to around 60hz before it starts to roll off seems pretty good to me for a 5 1/4" driver.

If you like the JBL's more get them especially since they're on sale, sub's aren't always necessary with near field's; my Mackies pack a punch with 5's. Do you have the desk space for 8's? They will sound terrible if they are to close together and ESPECIALLY if they're to close to a wall (8 inches minimum from the wall behind)

Your local Craiglist is your best bet. People sell used desks for much cheaper than you can buy them new, often because they just want to get them out of their house because of other new furniture.

+1 to Craigslist. Ikea also has a lot of reasonably priced desks with adequate space, assuming there's one near you.
