KRK VXT-8 Active Monitor (Single)

The KRK VXT-8 monitor is hallmarked by defined low end, articulate midrange and precise highs, delivering clarity and accuracy on par with many world-class speakers costing more.

KRK VXT 8 Powered Monitor Details
Drawing upon the design characteristics of our Expose E8B, the new VXT Series of monitors consists of three models, the VXT4, VXT6, and VXT8. With a visually striking enclosure design that is equally functional, providing low resonance, improved structural integrity and extended low-end, slotted ports for reduced port turbulence, plus a sleek curvature that provides excellent imaging characteristics and a widersweet spot the VXT monitors achieve a new level of precision.
The domed tweeter (comprised of true silk for fast transient response) and the new woofer design (with its stiffer, lighter cone that provides low distortion and extended low-end) both have vented formers to remove heat and reduce the effects of power compression, enabling these monitors to maintain their sonic signature. ith uncompromising attention to detail that includes tamper resistant switch covers, integrated Omni Mount support and more, the VXT Series is an outstanding choice for a broad range of monitoring applications.
The KRK VXT 8 studio monitor features several key design elements that have made KRK sounds a "studio standard". These include radiused edges for improved imaging and slotted ports that greatly reduce distortion caused by port turbulence. What's more, KRK has included some valuable and practical enhancements like a speaker protection circuit for added confidence, an auto on/off feature for improved convenience and upgraded driver and amplifier components to ensure peak performance in even the most demanding professional environments.

Whether you are making critical mixing decisions or capturing the subtle nuance of a unique sound, you'll quickly discover that the VXT studio monitor is as precise about your work as you are.

Heavy, good sounding monitors January 21, 2010
Reviewer: Benjamin Gilbert from Edgewater, MD United States  
I've had a pair of these for about two years now.  I just finished an acoustic treatment on my control room, and man these things came to life...excellent flat response and no detectable coloration.  I have a pair of Monitor Audio GS-60's in my living room ($5000/pr) and it hurts me to say this, but I can't detect the difference.  Plenty of bass response without being too boomy, I track bass and kick drum through them all the time with no problems.
