No but they are not suitable. Studio monitors have specific requirements which are different from live sound speakers. The upside is that for considerable less than the price of two L1 Compacts you can buy an absolutely superb pair of studio near fields, I would recommend Neumann KH120s which cost around £1000 in the UK.

Unless you can spend quite a bit of time and money on room treatment so that the higher powered L1Cs can produce an honestly "flat" sound, you are better off using smaller, close field monitors for recording/mixing.
