If you're serious about recording and mixing, monitors are the best way to go... Unfortunately these are probably not your best bet. While these sound great to listen to, for critical listening you should spend a little more money and get the Eris 8s. The 4.5s start to thin out when you push the volume... You can start to hear the bass and low end getting a bit artificial as soon as you try to crank it up. As for the Eris 8s, I have never heard speakers so beautiful and detailed at this price point. You will NOT regret spending the extra money to get the 8s, if you are specifically looking for recording studio caliber monitors. Check out your mixes on earbuds afterwards to see if they stack up, and enjoy the bliss of hearing your creation come to life in the room.
