What type of speaker do you recomend?
I have 1 requirement the speakers must not have too much bass (something like JBL) i want clean sound production speaker. Best with
amplifier build in them.
Something like Yamaha HS8 BK or Fluid Audio F5 they are currently out of stock, so i like some alternatives or something better.
Price range 300-500 euros.
This is trance forum so i think good advice can be make here.

Well, if you want studio-quality speakers, search for studio monitors. These don't have colored sounds (so no bass boost etc). That's all I know.

As for models, sorry but I'm not the one to ask. In that price range, you'll be able to find some for sure. I hope we have someone with actual knowledge of this stuff (the diameter of the speaker and the room size are in some kind of correlation). If you want better sound and especially if you want to be a producer, you can treat your room with some acoustic panels and bass traps as well.

If your goal is to listen, I don’t see why you would want studio monitors.

I have the HS8’s, they are nice, Although on low volume the sub bass doesnt come through much. At higher volume there deffo is subbass.

If you don’t produce I wouldn’t spent money on studio monitors though.

Exactly. Get some good noise-cancelling headphones. You can find something extremely good if you're willing to pay about $150+ USD. Just don't get Beats - they're way too overpriced.
Alternately, maybe you're a cheapo like me, in which case these are fine (though admittedly I've had to replace them a few times over the past 5 years).
If OP is a producer, they should ask this same question over at Gearslutz as well.

If your intention is to listen to Trance music at home then I would recommend purchasing a pair of these:

They aren't noise cancelling, but you don't need noise cancelling unless you're going to wear them walking the streets, and besides it affects the sound quality anyway. The Shure headphones bring out all of the depth, detail and beauty in Trance music that the producer intended you to hear, plus they are extremely comfortable.

I rarely use speakers when listening to music, so unfortunately I can't help you with that, but I will say; If you are serious about listening to music from your PC, get some open back headphones like Sennheiser HD 650 and the Schiit Magni/Modi dac/amp combo and you'll experience music like never before.

Actually bought myself some speakers because a friend of mine got me into it and we went listening to some speakers. I bought these ones (second hand), they have a really nice bass and the sound is amazing for electronic music.

I have Focal alpha 80's, which are clean and super smooth for mid's and high's. They also make Alpha 50 or 65, if you want less bass.
