Overview

The KRK Rokit 8 Generation 2 takes value-priced monitors to a new performance level. All of the great stuff that Rokit's have been known for (front-firing bass port, soft-domed tweeter, glass aramid composite yellow cone) are still there, but the Rokit 8 G2's feature refined voicing and a new curved baffle that looks great, reduces diffraction and provides even better monitoring accuracy.

For years the Rokit series has been a popular choice for accurate monitoring in studios large and small. Now the all new Generation 2 RoKit provides a new standard for even better performance and accuracy, raising the bar once again.

No Pain With Gain
Why compromise gain structure to achieve a comfortable listening level? As musicians and recording people ourselves, we've asked that question too. So each Generation 2 Rokit 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 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 our award winning performance.

You've Got Connections
At KRK the focus is your mix. But it doesn't stop at creating accurate monitors. They live this stuff and appreciate 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, sure to accommodate any studio environment. So if it's RCA, Quarter-Inch (balanced/unbalanced) or XLR inputs you require, Rokit 8 has got you covered.

Even More Accurate Than Before
KRK took a great monitor series and made it better. Their 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 our world-class studio monitor engineering team, for clear, low-distortion performance.

Take Control
While your Generation 2 Rokit leaves the factory voiced to KRK's demanding specs, KRK also knows that no two rooms "sound" the same. As such, each Rokit 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 Rokit 8 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
Take a look at competitive monitors and you'll find ports on the back of the cabinet. These rear-firing ports tend create bass coupling with walls and corners amplifying low frequency information which will color your mix. The superior design of the KRK Generation 2 Rokit's include 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.

Power Up!
A great sounding monitor doesn't stop with a great cabinet and custom drivers. KRK's true bi-amplified amplifier system provides discrete low-distortion power for each driver. While active crossover systems provide smooth and accurate frequency response, and again, accurate diffraction control.

Great Speakers and fantastic GC service

By Stephan Earl

from Ft. Lauderdale, FL

Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 8 G2 Limited Edition Studio Monitor (Ferarri Gray):

These are really great speakers. I was upgrading from BX5a speakers and initially purchased BX8 D2 by M-Audio. Those speakers weren't accurate at all with much of the mid range pulled out and bass enhanced. On top of it the BX8 D2 have an annoying hum and if you're in an acoustically treated room this is quite annoying. So I came to Guitar Center to see what else was available and came across these Rockit 8 Limited Editions and I jumped all over them. While KRK Rockits are popular and used by many dance producers, I don't do dance music and did not like the yellow cones. They don't look professional in my studio. When I saw these with the Ferrari Grey I was excited. Now that I've had time to really listen and compare them to my BX5a and BX8 D2 (now for sale) I have to say these are great speakers that are very accurate. Good bottom with not too much bass and accurate mid range. I love them. Event more cool was GC. One speaker arrived defective from manufacturer and GC went out of their way to make sure I quickly received a replacement. I've always gone to GC stores, but now have very good faith in their online shopping as well. Great job KRK and Guitar Center.
