Pro audio speakers classified as "midfield monitors" are a different breed from "nearfield monitors", in the sense that they are designed to be used in situations where you are at least 2 meters to about 4 meters away from the speaker.

Being too close to a midfield monitor setup defeats the purpose of intended use and might not result in an open sound stage.

Therefore, the size of the room should seriously be taken into consideration when buying this type of studio speaker.

In other words, they are less ideal for bedroom producers because of both space requirements and the need for an acoustically treated environment.

N.B. keep in mind midfield monitors are also referred to as "mid-range studio monitors" by some pro audio manufacturers or different people in general.
