The KRK Classic 5 G3 powered studio monitor delivers high-fidelity audio for recording, mixing and playback. KRK Systems designed these limited-edition silver and black monitors to provide an accurate full-range frequency response for passionate music creators. The bi-amped 5" woofer and 1" soft-dome tweeter can achieve sound pressure levels up to 106 dB, with a frequency range extending up to 35 kHz for vocal clarity and deep bass. KRK's proprietary waveguide technology ensures a wide sweet spot and detailed stereo imaging. Multiple inputs provide easy integration into any studio configuration. Backed by KRK's reputation for sonic excellence, the Classic 5 G3 is a compact yet mighty monitor ready to help you achieve your creative vision.

High-Definition Waveguide for Precise Imaging

KRK's engineered waveguide was designed to provide detailed high-frequency response over a wide listening area. Its precise dispersion helps create an expansive sweet spot, allowing you to move around the control room while maintaining an accurate stereo image. The waveguide reduces early reflections for a clear soundstage, helping you make mixing decisions with confidence.

Glass-Aramid Composite Woofer for Tight Bass

The Classic 5 G3 woofer utilizes a glass-Aramid composite material for a stiff, lightweight cone that reproduces deep bass with low distortion. Its long excursion allows it to move plenty of air for a full low end, while the tight suspension keeps bass response articulate. The front-firing bass port reduces boundary interference, allowing flexible positioning in your studio.

Soft-Dome Tweeter for Smooth Highs

The 1" soft-dome tweeter in the Classic 5 G3 provides detailed high-frequency response up to 35 kHz. Its broad dispersion helps create an expansive stereo image. The soft dome material reduces harshness for smooth, natural-sounding highs that won't fatigue your ears during long mixing sessions.

Bi-Amped Amplification for Headroom and Control

The Classic 5 G3 utilizes a bi-amped class A/B amplifier to separately power its woofer and tweeter. This provides more power and headroom for cleaner, lower-distortion audio. It also gives you independent level control over the low and high frequencies using the rear-panel controls. Dial in the perfect balance of bass and treble for your listening environment and mixing needs.
