Yes. Studio monitors are a term for speakers that are good for recording and mastering audio because they are voiced flat so you can more accurately master the sounds you are producing.

If you have speakers that make a lot of bass you might produce something with low bass because it sounds good on your speakers but it won't necessarily sound good on all speakers.
No. They are powered, meaning they do not have an input for the receivers amplified output, most receivers only have RCA output for subwoofers.

They're great powered speakers - if you're looking for passive speakers you might be able to do better for the money.

reference monitors also tend to be very flat (aside from ns10's) which won't likely match your fronts very well.

Would these work well as standalone bookshelf speakers, like if I was wanted to plug a Chromecast Audio into them? I'm not very knowledgeable about speakers.

These are powered speakers. The resistance reading would only come into play if you use an external amp. Great for computer or just to hook your phone to for some tunes.
