KRK has redesigned its wildly popular Rokit series of studio monitors, providing a broader frequency response, a new cabinet design, an adjustment in power for better balance, and several other enhancements. It features a front-firing port that provides low frequency extension without boundary coupling, an improved speaker voicing for even more accurate frequency response, a 1" silk dome tweeter, and an Aramid 5" glass composite woofer. They are lightweight, low profile and are offered at a price that makes professional-level monitoring affordable for even the most humble studios.
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 3 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.

The KRK Rokit Powered 5" Generation 3 studio monitors are great for a starter studio, or home studio. They have a great frequency response.
I have a very humble home recording setup and needed to upgrade to better studio monitors than what I had. Through a recommendation from a drummer friend, I purchased a pair of Rokit 5G3's. After setting these babies up, I was blown away! They are very neutral, clean yet solid. They reproduce your music the way it was designed to be heard; Faithfully! Even though these monitors are neutral, they really handle bass frequencies well for a 5" woofer. What's great about these monitors is they don't take up a lot of real estate. They are solidly manufactured and each monitor has the same power configuration and controls. This way you can balance the output to match each other and to room acoustics. Lastly, they produce a high SPL; so you have volume to spare. What's not so great about these babies is that because of their reasonable price some folks might not take the monitors seriously. And that would be a big mistake!
Using these with my computer right now, best sound I ever pulled out of my Imac! These monitors are accurate, well balanced, have a huge reserve of power, can't get close to max on volume without hurting my ears, and no distortion at high volume, fabulous! Get the special edidtion if still available for $99 a piece! :)
Excellent sound, more accurate than my previous two pair.
