"Immediately Broke"

So I bought the Mackie CR3-XBTs to monitor a drum kit library I was creating. Pretty immediately in the first session one of the speakers just cut out. I did something to get it working again maybe cycling the power & then before too long it did it again. I returned them the same day. Definitely not worth the headache. HOWEVER I also noticed that the sound of these is VERY off. Completely hyped low end. So for any accurate monitoring steer clear even if you think you have a working pair. I’m not sure what is trustworthy with build quality & frequency response in this size. I imagine the comparable sized Yamaha HSes are given my experience with the HS80s but whatever you decide upon make sure it is not these.
