KRK's glass-aramid cone technology sets a new standard with even better performance and accuracy!

KRK's Rokit G2 (Generation 2) powered studio monitor delivers amazing performance and accuracy for the home or project studio at a very accessible price. The G2 Rokit has radically curved edges which virtually eliminate diffraction and provides a wider sweet spot. The Rokit G2 also features a great looking cabinet with a front-firing bass port and KRK's trademark yellow glass-aramid composite woofer and soft-domed tweeters. Dual high-power amplifiers in each speaker and active crossovers provide smooth and accurate reproduction. The Rokit monitor has the most accurate response curve in its class ensuring that you hear all of the details in your mix.

The KRK RokitG2 Series takes value-priced monitors to a different performance level. All of the great stuff that Rokit monitors have been known for (front-firing bass port, soft-domed tweeter, glass aramid composite yellow cone) are still there, but the G2 Rokit studio monitors feature refined voicing and a curved baffle that looks great, reduces diffraction, and provides even better monitoring accuracy.

No Pain With Gain

Why compromise gain structure to achieve a comfortable listening level? As musicians and recording people themselves, KRK asked that question too. So each Generation 2 Rokit monitor comes with an Input Volume Control that provides an adjustable gain range from +6dB to -30dB. Just another way the Rokit lets you focus on your mix, and not on compatibility concerns.

Catch A Wave, For A 3D Mix

Recessed tweeters may look the same, but they don't perform the same. KRK has designed a superior tweeter wave guide for the Rokit monitor that provides optimal high frequency pattern control and focuses the sound outward, away from the cabinet. More conventional designs direct sound along the plane of the cabinet where waveform interaction can cause phase problems and increased diffraction. KRK knows a properly engineered high frequency wave guide is a critical component to great sound, and one key to KRK's award winning performance.

You've Got Connections

At KRK, the focus is your mix. But it doesn't stop at creating accurate monitors. KRK appreciates the need for monitors that not only sound great but work easily into your particular set up. That's why you'll find plenty of input options with your Rokit monitor, sure to accommodate any studio environment. So if it's RCA, quarter-Inch (balanced/unbalanced) or XLR inputs you require, Rockit has got you covered.

Even More Accurate Than Before

KRK took a great monitor series and made it better. KRK's engineers and listening panel took the Generation 2 Rokits' speaker voicing to even more accurate levels. What you hear is what you are intended to hear, coloration is not part of the spec. This performance is brought to you by drivers that are custom-designed by KRKs world-class studio monitor engineering team, for clear, low-distortion performance.

Take Control

While your Generation 2 Rokit leaves the factory voiced to demanding specs, KRK also knows that no two rooms "sound" the same. As such, each Rokit monitor comes equipped with a high-frequency level control. This feature provides specific adjustment of high frequency output most commonly affected by room acoustics. It's just one extra level of control that KRK gives you to ensure the most accurate mix for your particular room's acoustics.

Don't Be Square, Curves Ahead

The Gen 2 Rockit studio monitor looks different, so it can sound better, and in a wider "sweet spot". Traditional rectangular speakers suffer from diffraction as sounds leaving the edge of the cabinet are reflected back into the original sound field, and at different time intervals. This phase distortion creates a "narrow" or "boxy" sound. The Generation 2 Rokit series eliminates this issue with radically engineered curved surfaces, so diffraction is virtually eliminated. Simply put, you'll get better sound in a wider area.

Let's Be Up Front

Other monitors have ports on the back of the cabinet. These rear-firing ports tend to create bass coupling with walls and corners amplifying low frequency information which will color your mix. The KRK Generation 2 Rokit studio monitor's design includes front-firing ports, which are just the right shape and taper to reduce port turbulence. You'll appreciate the clean and accurate bass performance this approach delivers, even at high SPL's.

Power Up!

A great sounding monitor doesn't stop with a great cabinet and custom drivers. KRKs true bi-amplified amplifier system provides discrete low-distortion power for each driver. While the active crossover systems provide smooth and accurate frequency response, and again, accurate diffraction control.

Note: Price reflects a single unit.

You MUST Choose With Your Own Ears!


from Undisclosed

Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 5 Generation 2 Powered Studio Monitor (Each):

The very last thing that you should EVER do is buy a set of monitors based on reviews. That's what I did with the KRK Rokit 5's. I have a very good bit of recording/listening experience but I am far from being a "professional" sound engineer. So... I listened to the advice of many people who (are) fans of the KRK's. Typically, I add NOTHING to my home studio without fully experiencing it.

Don't get me wrong, there ARE a lot of people who really like these monitors. For me personally however, they're very muddy and add a lot of bass. I have A/B'ed them with 4 other listening devices and on every single mixdown, of many styles of music, the result was the same... muddy and bassy comparatively speaking.

Monitor choice is a HUGE deal when it comes to your home or professional studio for sure. You absolutely MUST spend the time and purchase what sounds good only to YOU. Everyone hears differently than everyone else. As for me, it's back to Sennheiser headphones until I find the right monitors for my ears.

Perfect for small studio


from West Lafayette, Indiana

Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 5 Generation 2 Powered Studio Monitor (Each):

I can't believe these monitors. Their smaller size does not detract from the sounds and power they are able to belch out. Living in a dorm room, these are a perfect size to even out that mix and push the levels when need be. Would recommend these to anybody. Amazing buy!

KRK Rocks

Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 5 Generation 2 Powered Studio Monitor (Each):

Out of all the monitors I've used in my studio, these are some of the most accurate and enjoyable to work with. Solid, clean, and able to handle a lot of abuse (when a client wants to HEAR the mix loud...) I also have a pair of 8's that I've put wire mesh over the front and I take them to gigs for remote monitoring or on either side of the board to hone in on problems in the mix. Gotta love em.
