KRK Rokit monitors are one of the best monitors on the market for those looking for high quality at and reasonable price. They have a deep and punchy bottom, with a crisp clear top end, and smooth mids that sit back just slightly. This signature sound makes them great for musicians and engineers that specialize in Hip Hop, Rap, R&B, Hard Rock, and Metal, pretty much anywhere you need to know that the kick punchy, the snare snaps, the bass hits, and the vocals cut, and that there are no conflicts between the low energy instruments. And with that signature yellow Kevlar woofer, they are built to handle this perfectly, with no worries of them not lasting. Bundled with a RapcoHorizon cable (connector configuration of your choice), you know the signal patch from your converters to your monitors can be trusted and reliable. RapcoHorizon manufactures some of the most durable, reliable, and quality sounding cables for virtually every need.
With the On Stage Stands SMS6000-P, you get a stable and well built stand to get your monitors off you desk, greatly reducing transference, and opening up real estate for that second computer screen you need.Add a pair of Auralex MoPads to help further isolate your speakers and ensure monitoring quality.
KRK RP5 G2 Active Monitor Details
The KRK Rokit Series takes value-priced monitors to a new performance level. All of the great stuff that Rokit's have been known for (front-firing bass port, soft-domed tweeter, glass aramid composite yellow cone) are still there, but the G2 Rokit's feature refined voicing and a new curved baffle that looks great, reduces diffraction and provides even better monitoring accuracy.
Studio Monitor Series from KRK Systems. For years the Rokit series has been a popular choice for accurate monitoring in studios large and small. Now the all new Generation 2 RoKit provides a new standard for even better performance and accuracy, raising the bar once again.
Why compromise gain structure to achieve a comfortable listening level? As musicians and recording people themselves, KRK has asked that question too. So each Generation 2 Rokit 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.
Recessed tweeters may look the same, but they don't perform the same. KRK has designed a superior tweeter wave guide for the Rokit 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.
At KRK the focus is your mix. But it doesn't stop at creating accurate monitors. KRK lives this stuff and appreciate 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, sure to accommodate any studio environment. So if it's RCA, Quarter-Inch (balanced/unbalanced) or XLR inputs you require, Rokit has got you covered.
KRK took a great monitor series and made it better. Their 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 KRK's world-class studio monitor engineering team, for clear, low-distortion performance.
While your Generation 2 Rokit leaves the factory voiced to KRK's demanding specs, KRK also knows that no two rooms "sound" the same. As such, each Rokit 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.
The new Rokit 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.
Take a look at competitive monitors and you'll find ports on the back of the cabinet. These rear-firing ports tend create bass coupling with walls and corners amplifying low frequency information which will color your mix. The superior design of the KRK Generation 2 Rokit's include 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.
A great sounding monitor doesn't stop with a great cabinet and custom drivers. KRK's true bi-amplified amplifier system provides discrete low-distortion power for each driver. While KRK's active crossover systems provide smooth and accurate frequency response, and again, accurate diffraction control.
