ROKIT 8 G3 Powered Studio Monitor

The ROKIT G3 (Generation 3) powered studio monitor series maintains KRK’s reputation as one of the most frequently used studio monitor brands in the world. The large ROKIT 8 G3 pairs an 8” glass-Aramid composite woofer with a 1” soft-dome tweeter for extended frequency response from 35Hz - 35kHz with maximum bass performance and vocal detail. The custom-designed bi-amped, class A/B amplifier delivers SPL up to 109dB and multiple input connections allow the ROKIT 8 G3 to easily integrate into most studio environments. The radiused front baffle, proprietary waveguide and front-firing bass port give the ROKIT 8 G3 the flexibility to be placed in the best listening position

There are several reasons the KRK ROKIT 8 has been a professional choice for engineers and recording artists, especially for mixing and mastering: The monitor’s sound is one of the most honest out there. The unique design significantly minimizes distortion compared to its boxy counterparts and the already-large sweet spot and evenness across frequencies mean you won’t listen to a mix out of balance.

If you've ever felt a need for a clear, crisp and virtually distortion-free reference of your mix — don’t look any further. Whether you’re on your laptop in your bedroom or on the SSL console in the studio, KRK Rokits provide the natural and balanced tone lends itself to mid range clarity and low range extension.

After listening to them for extended periods using a variety of media sources and audio resolutions, they do come across as having a clearer and more spacious sound than the previous generation, presenting crisp, accurate details across the mix of lows, mids, and highs.

…it seems that KRK has succeeded in producing a studio monitor that sounds much more expensive than it is, and will surely be a popular choice for recording engineers, DJ’s, live sound - mixers and audio enthusiasts
