Would studio monitors be preferable to speakers designed for public
performance.  In other words if a band or artist has a sound system
for public performances with high quality amplifiers and speakers,
is it acceptable to use the same speakers in the studio if they do their
own recording, or would they be better off buying studio monitors for
this purpose?  This is assuming their sound system isn't some gargantuan
system that would be unwieldy to use in the studio, but instead is a
small, but high quality system and speakers that a small band or solo
artist would use.
