So you mean that the active speakers are as affected by the lack of acoustical treatment as the studio monitors? I mean...aren't studio monitors designed for studio use and active speakers for stage? Shouldn't the monitors be more affected by the environment?
Yeah, every speaker is effected by the environment (headphones being an obvious exception). The reason acoustics and studio monitors go hand in hand is that if you are buying studio monitors you are almost certainly more interested in accuracy than the average hifi buyer.
