      Use them for video editing monitors and they are amazing for the size. You can also use them with projectors and iPods. It's a really good product for the price.

        Comments about Fostex PM0.4n 36W 4" Active Nearfield Studio Monitor Speaker (Pair, White):

        Bought these for use as computer stereo monitors. They look elegant, and the compact size is great for this application. However, the sound quality is disappointing. I'm looking for a clean, neutral sound but these add high amounts of coloration to all sources--MP3s, streaming audio, and CDs. They don't approach the clarity of the monitors I already had, which were Yamaha single-driver units. The drivers look to be high quality, so most likely the built-in amplification is messing up the signal, making for grainy, veiled, harsh audio from the speakers. Too bad! I returned these and bought Yamaha HS50M's, double the cost but far superior sound reproduction. Another thing that killed these monitors for me--the two bass reflex ports squirt air at you; when there's bass in the signal, the pulses of air hit you and it feels like there's bugs landing on your arms! Unbelievable!
