Overview

The 10s subwoofer is a perfect compliment to the KRK Rokits, VXT, or just about any other 4"-8" studio monitor. A must have for any bass heavy productions; the KRK 10s is designed to extend the low-frequency performance of an existing monitor system so that the low frequencies of a mix can be engineered properly.

For years, KRK subwoofers have been the choice for accurate low frequency monitoring in studios large and small. Now, the KRK10s provides a new standard for even better performance and accuracy, raising the bar once again. Whether you are mixing in a 2.1 or 5.1 surround environment or just looking to upgrade the low-frequency extension of your existing monitors, the KRK10s will provide the low frequency detail and accuracy that will help you to create a better mix. The design of the KRK10s includes front-firing ports which are just the right shape to reduce port turbulence. You'll appreciate the clean and accurate bass performance this approach delivers, even at high SPLs. With a sweepable 50Hz - 130Hz low pass filter, the KRK10s provides flexible control for any monitoring system.


Features
  • New curved design and custom color matches KRK Rokit and VXT monitors
  • Protective steel front grill provides protection
  • Power LED provides visual indication of unit's status
  • Bypass footswitch allows for checking mixes with and without subwoofer
  • Integrated crossover matches any main speaker system
  • Ground lift switch tames ground loops
  • Radically curved front baffle design for mazing performance
  • Front-firing port provides low frequency extension without boundary coupling
  • Scientifically designed front firing port reduces wall coupling and port turbulence

My first experience with the KRK 10S was at a friend's studio. His setup includes the KRK 10S and two KRK Rockit 8 speakers. At the time (a couple years ago), I owned only the KRK Rockit 6 speakers. The sound quality of the subwoofer impressed me at the time. I was sold on the product just from limited studio sessions.

Fast-foward to present time, I finally purchased the 10S and incorporated it into my setup. The setup was easy. MusiciansFriend delivered it quickly! The manual explains a bunch of things that you should already know if you're investing in this unit.

The 10S has a crisp response and great range. It complements my KRK Rockit 6s very well. I am pleased that the subwoofer is capable of both shaking my apartment to pieces, or just softly filling out the bottom end for quieter listening levels.

Upon listening to my favorite tracks by bass-heavy artists, I anticipate that the 10S is going to be a great aid in my sound design process. Anybody that has a doubt about the necessity of a subwoofer for sound-design: I highly recommend it.

The KRK 10s looks great, sounds great, and doesn't completely break my bank account. I look forward to the coming months as the woofer breaks-in.

As a side note, the only other reviewer currently gives the 10s a less-than-stellar rating, but he is not rating the quality of the woofer... just venting his frustration with MusiciansFriend.

    WOW this KRK Rokit 10' Subwoofer is a nice ad-on to my KRK 10' 3 ways
    it fills in the low-end very nicely. As we all know Bass in non-directional
    so where ever you place this it still give full rich bass. If your in the market
    for some bass to even-out your sound system this Subwoofer is up to the task

      It's really nice to mix with this sub. I can hear the bottom end of my mixes perfectly and doesn't have to compensate for anything. The bypass switch really help me when I am dubbing vocal.

      I already own the Rokkit 6's. I was playing with idea of upgrading the 8's to get a better sound. Since I purchased the sub woofer I must say that I am quite happy with my setup. The sub made all the difference.

      Comments about KRK 10s Active Subwoofer:

      This sub replaced a stop-gap sub I had been using in my studio. I primarily write/remix/DJ dance music, and already had a set of the KRK Rokit 8's, so I purchased this to keep the brand/sound consistent.

      My studio is in a spare bedroom, approximately 12x12, and this thing is almost too much for the room. When I first hooked it up, I thought I was being conservative by starting with the volume knob a tick under half, but that still shook half the house and drowned out my Rokit monitors, as I tend to write/mix at low volume levels. After some tuning/tweaking with the crossover and taking the volume way down, I was able to get it to sound really good (even if now still just a tad bass-heavy), though now I'm sure I will need to do some further treatment in my room with some bass traps and really spend some time dedicated to re-tuning the room again.

      My specific room's issues aside, this thing seems like it would be a great addition to any small/mid-size studio. The bass is deep, clean, and accurate, as far as I can tell. At the very least, it is far more accurate than the old Yahama I was replacing. It reaches down in to the lower register with ease, and the crossover seems pretty accurate. It's not the best sub I've ever heard, and if I had to find something to complain about, it's that it is a little heavier/bigger than I expected a 10" sub to be. But for this price range and matching the brand/sound with my existing monitors, it gets the job done and I'm very happy with it. Just remember, in a smaller room, a little dab'll do ya just fine.

      You Get What You Pay For

      By Daniel Richards

      from Charlotte NC

      Comments about KRK 10s Active Subwoofer:

      I've been through a couple of these. The cabinet is solid and the driver is too. But i've had issues with the electronics. Specifically the inputs and outputs and the Input PCB. This thing costs too much to ship and it takes to long so I just repair em myself. The problems I have run into on two separate 10S is bad solder joints on the input pcb. This caused a small crackle to appear after the board heats up a little bit. The XLR ins and outs are soldered directly to a circuit board on the other side of the back panel. Upon inspection I could see cold solder joints which is a sign of cheap/fast manufacturing. So I resoldered and fixed them. It's likely that other people run into this problem. KRK does not sell parts for their monitors. You can't buy an Input PCB from them, only drivers, cabinets, or the ENTIRE amplifier assembly. Or you must ship your monitor at a high cost and wait for weeks. The first 10S I owned had a bad channel. Audio was a couple of db lower on one channel and the sound was distorted. That issue ended up being a bad solder joint on the Input PCB, too. So the sub will do the job but it's performance is not impressive. Functionally they can be unreliable. Gibson/KRK does not have great support and their service/parts department doesn't exist. So i'd go with another similarly priced sub in the future. I gave KRK a second shot with this sub and that's it. On a side note - I have a some KRK monitors that I do really love :)

      Comments about KRK 10s Active Subwoofer:

      i have a recording studio in my home, and this was the perfect compliment to my krk rockit5's. as it turns out i was overcompensating on the bass, and never would have known were it not for my new 10s. every track, i know exactly what the bass is doing. i justy got it home, set it up listened to some songs i am familiar with, and adjusted the bass accordingly. after that i had a gauge and have been alright. now i can continue to improve. i'm happy.

      When I say these things boom..... I mean it. You can feel it in your chest. They really add the perfect depth to mixes, and I feel like its essential to have in the studio. The independent gain is a plus, as well as the phase flip switch. Gorgeous bass for every music, metal, electronic etc.
