Hey, Bolun! I actually like my paradigm studio 20's for rock music but they don't have much low end and can get a bit bright if you're not using components that are more on the laid back side. Cymbals and high hats sounded especially good to me. They could play loud and keep up with complicated passages, in my oppinion. You'd definately want a sub or two though.
Another speaker that I've been lusting over is a pair of Tyler acoustics. There's a pair of taylo 7u's for sale here on audiogon for $2400 that I'm thinking would sound fabulous but am not sure how they perform as a rock music speaker.
Another manufacturer I'd ask our fellow 'goners about would be some ZU audio's.
Klipsch Belle or if you can find a pair of Klipschorns in your area for under $2000 you won't be sorry. And, those are lifetime speakers, if you get them for that price, over the years you can do upgrades such as the crossover network, wiring, and refinishing the boxes.
My all time favorite rock speaker, regardless of price.
