Overview

KRK Systems is one of the world’s most respected manufacturers of studio reference monitors. In their state of the art design facility, KRK engineers create products that deliver natural and balanced spectral response with low distortion and superior imaging. KRK Studio Monitors have been the professional’s choice of recording engineers and artists for mixing and mastering hit records around the globe, as they need to hear every nuance of the audio being reproduced. KRK ROKIT Generation 3 monitors continue in this design philosophy, so regardless of your musical style, genre, or particular mixing needs, KRK Rokits deliver.

KRK's ROKIT 5 G3 (Generation 3) powered studio monitors offer professional performance and accuracy for recording, mixing, mastering and playback. The system consists of a 1” soft dome tweeter and 5” glass-Aramid composite woofer. It delivers high frequencies up to 35kHz, vocal clarity and extended bass response. The proprietary bi-amped, class A/B amplifier grants SPL up to 106dB. The ROKIT waveguide is designed to ensure detailed imaging in the listening position. The front-firing bass port reduces boundary coupling to allow flexible positioning in the room while the engineered surface reduces diffraction distortion. Multiple input connections ensure the ROKIT 5 G3 will easily integrate in any system configuration.

As one of the most used Studio monitors in the world, the ROKIT 5 is a high valuable and compact solution towards an accurate mix.

An excellent product for the money!

By LaVell

from Brooklyn, NY

Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 5" Generation 3 Powered Studio Monitor:

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!

Incredibly accurate speakers

By Jeroen Beukers

from Los Angeles, California

Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 5" Generation 3 Powered Studio Monitor:

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! :)

I could not be happier with my decision. These things kick butt .They look great and sound amazing. I was concerned the 5' might not be enough, but now I can't imagine how good an 8' would sound! Vinyl sounds unbelievable through these.

    Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 5" Generation 3 Powered Studio Monitor:

    I like everything about these except the sleep mode, or more specifically waking them up. After detecting silence for "a while", they deactivate, and have a fade-in when I start playing again. Some applications, e.g. non-audio, I use at low volume which does not even trigger the wake-up unless I crank it, cover my ears, and turn it back down. Other than that, these sound better than the monitors they replaced - they cost less, and are smaller but have much better low end.

    Outstanding. After much research I chose these for my home recording studio. I plug them into my studio mixer via xlr cable. Note: these sell individually so you must buy 2 for a complete pair set. Well worth the price however!

      Great monitors. Easy to set up. Just after installation and quick setup played favorite songs - by Merrow, Conquering Dystopia, Meshuggah - I was stunned by the cool sound. After starting Reaper and trying to mix some of my own songs I began to hear sounds I never heard before XD Simply great.
