The passive Truth monitors pretty much filled the niche you are after, as far as studio monitors go. There are some bookshelf speakers with a reasonably flat response though. You might give the Philharmonics Affordable Accuracy speakers a look. Also the Ascend Audio CBM-170s seem to measure very neutrally. Since the Behringers were so widely used, it is not uncommon to see them on the used market, so look at ebay and craigslist for some as well.

The claim is that that their unusually good dispersion (documented above) makes them far better speakers than most for mounting on their side.

Is that a home theater setup?


Yes,

The front center is about 10 feet, and the front L&R are about 15 feet if memory serves. There are also 5 or 6 other speakers in surround duty over a similar range of distances. The system is used for both video and music.

With large system like this, whatever the listener's want! The two subwoofers each contain 2 ca. 15" JL audio drivers back-to-back powered by an amp farm on its own 230 volt 30 amp circuit, in the basement totaling out at 5 KW or so.
I thought they were 18w3's? How is "D" doing these days? I installed the acoustical paneling in his system. But I haven't heard much from him in years.
