    I recently purchased 5 active studio monitors.
    They sound great and I don't feel as though the
    sound is lacking anything but noticed that their
    frequency responsed is 53Hz to 19kHz +/-3dB. Most
    speakers seem to go up to 20kHz. Will I be missing
    much? For reference the monitors are Event Tuned
    Reference 5 (TR5) biamplified studio monitors.

    the 1khz on the high end you probably not hear, the 53hz for the low end is a little lacking and you might feel a subwoofer is in order.

    It is funny how people focus on those numbers. I have yet to find an adult male which can hear beyond 17Khz... [​IMG]

    Yeah, you're fine. Keep in mind the "+- 3 dB" part. Many speaker manufacturers say their speakers are 50 Hz to 20 kHz, but then they don't give the +- dB part. So, you could be 6 dB down by the time you get to 20kHz. In short, don't worry about that at all.

    Since these are tuned monitors meant for studio use, they'll likely be much flatter in the frequencies you can actually hear compared to many passive speakers.

    Enjoy!
