Product Description

From the Manufacturer

KRK

KRK ROKIT 8

KRK ROKIT 8 Key Features:

  • 1" Neodymium Soft Dome Tweeter with Ferro Fluid
  • Glass Aramid Composite Cone Woofer
  • Radically curved front plate design virtually eliminates diffraction distortion
  • Waveguide design provides amazing detail and imaging
  • Front-firing port provides low freq extension without boundary coupling
  • New speaker voicing for even more accurate frequency response
  • Peak SPL : 109dB
  • Frequency Response 45Hz - 20kHz (+/- 1.5 dB)

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.

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.

*If you do electronic music (like I do) or hip-hop, consider the Rokit 8's*

I acquired these about 3 weeks ago to do my mixing and mastering. Having previously did my music on non monitor speakers, these take a lot of the guess work out.

Here are a few things to know:

1. A lot of people who get these aren't aware of what a monitor speaker is and what it does. Only the best recordings and mixes will sound good on them. That's what they're for; listening for flaws and defects in a recording. Monitors are unforgiving in that way and they're supposed to be. Basically, if you can make your mixes sound good on a monitor, they will sound good on any system.

2. These are $500 a pair. That's in the budget range for this class of speakers. However, for their price they are exceptional. There is a gain control on the back of each speaker. More importantly, there is also a high end/treble control. This is important for adjusting them to your room environment.

3. Something else to note; These monitors are not completely flat in their response. They tend to be a bit heavy on the mids and low mids. At first this will throw you a bit off but once you're used to their response, you will be perfecting your mixes and masters in no time.

Some reviews have claimed that there is sometimes a high frequency hum. I've found that this tends to be a DAW related issue. This happens from time to time in Cubase 4 but not in Mixmeister. Also, you should try to have them as close to ear level as possible. The bass is excellent and if you EQ just right, these things will really boom! These are excellent for electronic and hip-hop music. the high ends are crisp as well. The front firing bass port is smart, no interference with walls.

I was initially weary with reviews concerning about the bass level with these speakers. I am your average Joe, no music production, no acoustically treated rooms, or anything. I'm just trying to get the best item for my budget like mostly everyone else. They are currently set up in my living room, which is connected to my kitchen in wide open space approx. 30ft x 18ft. Yes, I know these speakers are near-field, studio monitors, designed for producers to hear the flaws in music reproduction. However I just use it as my home theatre system. They sound exceptional considering they have to fill the gigantic space. It fills my house with music when I have guests over, they can go loud enough to interrupt a conversation in my kitchen. All this sound with very little distortion. Now you aren't going to get the wall shaking, heart pounding, orga5m inducing bass with a subwoofer. There is plenty of bass though! Just the type of bass that's mean to be heard, and not hair vibrating bass. The way music was meant to be heard. They even handle karaoke when I use them as that. I couldn't find any reviews like the one I'm making, most people who wrote reviews are music producers/editors. So this is for everyone else out there lingering and contemplating whether to get these for home theater use.

Don't expect these to be a smaller version of PA speakers. Studio monitors are quality over quantity. Yes, these are plenty loud for their intended use. The important part is their sound quality. As with any speaker of this quality, proper break-in really does make them sound better. The RP8G2 is a great value choice. Yes, there are better speakers on the market. You will pay a real premium for them, though. It is hard to evaluate speakers just on the published specs. Sound quality is so much more than technical spectral analysis.

These are solidly built, great sounding monitors that are a good value. I can really recommend them.

I had recently purchased an Akai MPK49. While i am not the best Musician or composer, i do love music (most Genres) so i thought having a little Studio in my Spare room would be great. The PC speakers i had (a 5.1 system with a sub woofer) was not cutting it. So after hearing the Rokit 6's at Sam Ash, i knew i had to have them. At first i thought $250 for 1 speaker was pricey. But after long research and debating whether to buy them or not, i am happy i did.

The sound quality is excellent. comparing these to other $300+ speakers they sound better or just about the same. They are loud and can definitely handle a lot of power with no distortion in quality. These puppies definitely rock the house i mean that literally they have good low end and clear sound as well.

I also purchased the Rokit 10s sub woofer to go with the pair Rokit 8's. This is also amazing and together they make a good party. The only thing is i sit about 1ft away from the woofer and i can't really feel the bass until i start walking away. actually the whole system sounds better about 10ft away or more when played loud.

Over all the Rokit 8's alone are more than enough. They are worth every penny and you actually get a little more than you'd expect. If you are hesitating to buy these, DON'T!!! get them now, totally worth it.

I previously heard my friend's KRK VST8's, and was impressed with them. Even though these speakers are quite a bit lower in price than the VST8's, they remind me a lot of them, particularly in the top end. In some ways, I prefer these speakers to my Tannoy System 15 DMT II's (again, in the high frequency performance -- the Tannoys are hard to beat in the dynamic range area, though). These speakers are an amazing deal when you factor in that they have amps built into them. The low end response out of 8" drivers is quite impressive as well. The KRK RP8's are a farily low-cost, high-performance studio monitoring system.
