This is BS just because they call them "monitors " does not mean they are, not if they only cover the 80hz-16khz spectrum plus those aluminum enclosures are not acoustically neutral, they will resonate and color the sound. Monitors are supposed to accuratley reproduce sound and not color them like normal speaker set up. While those may sound nice monitors are supposed to sound accurate and nothing about those specs sound accurate. Accuracy is 20hz to 20khz in an acoustically neutral enclosure.
