I do have two Celestion DL4 Series Two speakers...
...would the raw mixdown I'd send the mastering service be intrinsically limited/flawed?
Something I've noticed that most differs between professionally produced tracks and my own is that mine are significantly quieter, even when the wave is big, or almost clipping. I read a little about it and figured out it's something to do with compression that enables a denser wave
Do you think I should hook up the Celestion monitors/speakers (I don't know what constitutes either terms) to my computer and use those instead? They probably have a larger frequency range, which would only be a benefit, right?

As those of you who have followed this column for any length of time can attest, headphone mixing is one of the big no-no's around these parts. In our humble opinion, headphone mixes do not translate well in the real world, period, end of story. Other than checking for balance issues and the occasional hunting down of little details, they are tools best left for the tracking process.
