No Pain With Gain

KRK

KRK

Why compromise gain structure to achieve a comfortable listening level? As musicians and recording people ourselves, we've 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.

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 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 our award winning performance.

You've Got Connections

At KRK our focus is your mix. But it doesn't stop at creating accurate monitors. We live 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.

Even More Accurate Than Before

We took a great monitor series and made it better. Our 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 our world-class studio monitor engineering team, for clear, low-distortion performance.

Take Control

While your Generation 2 Rokit leaves the factory voiced to our 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.

Don't Be Square, Curves Ahead

Our 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.

Let's Be Up Front

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.

Power Up!

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

Love the speakers, great value for money.
Julia Truchsess
A good way to "hone in" on your mix is to put it up against your favorite song that has a killer mix/production.
Guitar Operator
Good bass sound with very clear mids and highs.

I just replaced a pair of decade-old Event 20/20bas in my home studio with KRK Rockit 6's. I'm astonished that you can get powered monitors this accurate at this price point.

Over the years, I've worked on monitors of varying levels of accuracy and price: Event 20/20bas, TR6 and TR8, Genelec 1030A, Yamaha NS-10's of course, and a dozen others. I had avoided KRK's because the early examples sounded a lot like NS-10's: stuffy, midrange-focused, but without the unnatural brightness. They were known as a Rock monitor, geared towards mixing guitars. Who needs another pair of 10's?

There is no "accurate" monitor really, but over time you get to know their quirks well enough to put effective mixes together. I guess those early KRKs needed some getting used to, but they certainly had their fans among respected producers and engineers. After enough of my colleagues raved about the latest crop of powered monitors, I started paying attention.

I spent an hour or so A/B'ing these against KRK Rockit 5, Rockit 8, VXT 4's and 8's, Adam A7X, Yamaha HS50M (a NS-10 reboot), and some awful M-Audio monstrosity. I really expected to end up buying the VXT 8's; they were pleasant, but a little too pleasant, almost like a Genelec or Dynaudio. The Rockit 8's are liars, lacking clarity in the lower midrange and glossing over everything with fancy bass. The Rockit 5 was surprisingly good: nice clarity and separation. But I kept coming back to the Rockit 6 for its solid midrange, restrained low end and overall dynamic properties.

They are what I consider a "fast" monitor, meaning they react quickly to electrical impulses, and get the air moving in turn. The result is a crisp dynamic clarity - when you hear people talk about "punchy" monitors, this is what they mean.

I was looking for a proper speaker system to replace my top of the line computer speaker system and it seemed that none of the available computer speaker systems had adequately sized and powered subwoofers, so after much research I ended up with a pair of Rokit6 (Gen2) speakers and a BIC Model F-12 (12" cone 150W RMS, 475W dynamic peak).

Most people will be happy with just the rokit6's, but being that they are small speakers the lower frequencies do suffer a little; few people will notice a difference without the subwoofer on most songs, which is impressive. They sound clear and are hard to beat for anywhere near the money. If you are looking for a song for comparison of with/without subwoofer I recommend the Carlos Santana song "Maria Maria".

To determine which size Rokit you should use based on the size of the room I recommend calculating the square footage of floor space then using 40% of that as the recommended power for each stereo speaker. So a ten by ten foot room would be one hundred square feet and would do well with two speakers each a minimum of 40W RMS per speaker.

Rokit5 is 45W per speaker and a pair should be good for up to 112 square foot room.
Rokit6 is 68W per speaker and a pair should be good for up to 170 square foot room.
Rokit8 is 90W per speaker and a pair should be good for up to 225 square foot room.

To wire from the computer to the Rokit without a subwoofer you will need a mini stereo plug to dual RCA adaptor and two RCA cables; if you want to add in a subwoofer like I did, then it gets complicated. If you get a subwoofer that accepts ¼ inch plugs (like guitars use) it will be much easier to hook up the subwoofer to the Rokit speakers by using standard ¼ inch mono plugs to each from the subwoofer.

These monitors are a serious upgrade for any computer system especially audiophiles and musicians. These are great for Garage Band or Logic on the Mac and recreate the sound with amazing clarity, depth and tone. Plus bass is impressive for a small speaker and high's are crisp and detailed without being unbalanced. These speakers create an amazing listening experience for all type of music and instruments for a studio or small room. Not going to be for a large room setup but if you have the space or can mount these for computer/studio setup you will be very impressed with them.

I have been in the audio industry (as a Full Time Audio Engineering Lecturer and Recording Studio Owner) for a quite a number of years and as such have worked on many different speaker systems, and I must say that from an engineers perspective these monitors really help you to get the great sounding mixes.

I have noticed that it is very easy for me to notice now when a song has a mix that sounds like a B class mix and when a song has a mix that sounds like an A class mix. In other words, they tell you the truth and nothing else.

In short, when it sounds good on these monitors, it will sound good everywhere. You might be upset by the fact that they dont magically make your music sound good, but once you start working on your songs and get that sound that makes you go WOW, you know it will sound good on other systems as well.

They are not the best monitors out there but since I have started working on them, I have learnt to trust what they are telling me. I would recommend these for anyone with a limited budget. If you have a bigger budget I would go for the KRK VXT8's instead. I have spent many hours working on the originals, the V8's, and they are brilliant.

Just remember you will need a sub woofer to give you accurate monitoring in the low end.

Hope this helps
