The exclusive KRK Generation 2 Rokit 5 monitor comes in a custom sleek white color design. Show your dedication to one of the most popular mixing monitors for home studios with these custom colored RP5 monitors. Loaded with the same great features like a front-firing bass port, soft-domed tweeter, and glass aramid composite cone, the G2 Rokit's offer a refined voicing and a new curved baffle that looks great, reduces diffraction and provides even better monitoring accuracy.
KRK's Rokit G2 (Generation 2) powered studio monitor delivers amazing performance and accuracy for the home or project studio at a very accessible price. The G2 Rokit has radically curved edges which virtually eliminate diffraction and provides a wider sweet spot. The Rokit G2 also features a great looking cabinet with a front-firing bass port glass-aramid composite woofer and soft-domed tweeters. Dual high-power amplifiers in each speaker and active crossovers provide smooth and accurate reproduction. The Rokit monitor has the most accurate response curve in its class ensuring that you hear all of the details in your mix.
No Pain With Gain
Why compromise gain structure to achieve a comfortable listening level? As musicians and recording people themselves, KRK asked that question too. So each Generation 2 Rokit monitor 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 monitor 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 KRK's award winning performance.
You've Got Connections
At KRK, the focus is your mix. But it doesn't stop at creating accurate monitors. KRK appreciates 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 monitor, sure to accommodate any studio environment. So if it's RCA, quarter-Inch (balanced/unbalanced) or XLR inputs you require, Rockit has got you covered.
Even More Accurate Than Before
KRK took a great monitor series and made it better. KRK's 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 KRKs world-class studio monitor engineering team, for clear, low-distortion performance.
While your Generation 2 Rokit leaves the factory voiced to demanding specs, KRK also knows that no two rooms "sound" the same. As such, each Rokit monitor 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
The Gen 2 Rockit studio monitor 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
Other monitors have ports on the back of the cabinet. These rear-firing ports tend to create bass coupling with walls and corners amplifying low frequency information, which will color your mix. The KRK Generation 2 Rokit studio monitor's design includes 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.
A great sounding monitor doesn't stop with a great cabinet and custom drivers. KRKs true bi-amplified amplifier system provides discrete low-distortion power for each driver. While the active crossover systems provide smooth and accurate frequency response, and again, accurate diffraction control.
Note: Price reflects a single unit.

Comments about KRK RP5 White Noise Studio Monitor:
So first off want to say these are my first studio monitors. Basically i dont know to much about studio monitors but i do know good sounding speakers when i hear them. Guitar Center dident have these exact ones on display but they had the black rp5s on display and i guess these are the same except the color. But i think these sound way better then the display krks. These have a hell of a punch and loud if you turn up the frequency response. The highs aren't exactly where they should be, but im pretty sure i need to break these puppies in. There sort of heavy too. The color is beautiful very glossy and shiny. Feels super durable. Awesome monitors.
Comments about KRK RP5 White Noise Studio Monitor:
Ive already owned a set of KRK's before this, but when I saw these I just had to get them. The color scheme along with the overall shape (which is the same as the previous rokit line up) is just too sexy. Its got this glossy pearl/ metallic white look and a very smooth feel to it. It matches the rest of my equipment perfectly and it looks oh so beautiful when I wake up and see the sunlight reflecting off of it. And when you turn it on the krk logo is a simple grey font with a white illumination in the background. None of that nasty signature krk yellow design is anywhere in site on this piece of devine angelic design mastery. It justs looks so pure. Other than that, since its only color scheme change, there is no difference in sound quality to the previous rp5. Whether this is a good or bad thing, that solely depends on you. All I know are krk's and these sound just as good as my other set.
