ROKIT 8's to VXT 8's or 6's?

Hey guys, just wondering what you think.. I 'm upgrading my rokits to either 6" or 8" VXT's, Im used to the rokit 8's so maybe I should go with the vxt 8's? I make dance music (dnb/electro/dubstep/etc) so maybe bigger is better?

Im also using ERGO! (KRKERGO.COM)

Thanks guys :D

I never used the ROKIT's, but recently was in the market for some new monitors, and due to the advice from some friends I highly respect, went with the VXT 8's, and have no regrets at all, except for the fact they may be too big for my room! , I have done a lot of mixes on them, and they seem to translate well to the variety of listening environments I have checked them out on..... some have said they may be a little odd on the low end, (since you mention your genre specific tasks), but I usually use them in close near field matters, and I haven't encountered anything weird yet at all....

I've got the VXT 4's and they sound very "honest" for want of a better description, but i deliberately put them near the wall to increase the bass response. So perhaps the 6's are the sweet spot. Unless you've got a big room, the 8's might give you an unrealistic view of the bass.
