Computer - Computer Speakers - Mini Monitors

At the moment all I have to work with are some Roland MA-8 mini monitors. I have them plugged into the headphone output of my computer speakers, which are hooked up to the computer.

Computer - Computer Speakers - Mini Monitors

I was wondering if the sound going through the computer speakers before reaching the Rolands would cause the sound to be altered at all?

Also, monitors give you that flat sound. What is the difference in other kinds of speakers (car system, TV speakers, desktop speakers)? Do they generally tend to boost or cut specific lows mids and highs?

The small gauge of the wire, for most computer speakers, will have some effect but not much. The MA-8 is self powered so this wire gauge becomes less important.

"Commercial" speakers tend to be heavy on the bass to a point of sounding "muddy". As to specific frequencies I'm not sure. An odd rule I've heard and used is: If you can get your mix to sound good on car speakers, it should sound good anywhere.

Not much info but there's my two cents.
