    KRK's glass-aramid cone technology sets a new standard with even better performance and accuracy!

    KRK's Rokit G2 (Generation 2) powered studio monitor is designed to give amazing performance and accuracy for the home or project studio. The G2 Rokit has radically curved edges which virtually eliminate diffraction and provide a wider sweet spot. The Rokit G2 also features a great looking cabinet with a front-firing bass port and KRK's trademark yellow 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.

    The KRK RokitG2 Series 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 G2 Rokit's feature refined voicing and a new curved baffle that looks great, reduces diffraction and provides even better monitoring accuracy.

    Welcome to the all new Generation 2 Rokit Powered
    Studio Monitor Series from KRK Systems. 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 studio monitor 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 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 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 setup. 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, 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 Rokit's 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 KRK's world-class studio monitor engineering team, for clear, low-distortion performance.

    Take Control
    While your Generation 2 Rokit monitor leaves the factory voiced to demanding specs, KRK also knows that no two rooms "sound" the same. As such, each Rokit speaker 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 new Rockit 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
    Take a look at competitive monitors and you'll find 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 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 SPLs.

    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 the active crossover systems provide smooth and accurate frequency response, and again, accurate diffraction control.

    Note: Monitors are sold as singles.

    Features
    • Radically curved front plate design virtually eliminates diffraction distortion
    • Waveguide design provides amazing detail and imaging
    • Front-firing port provides low frequency extension without boundary coupling
    • New speaker voicing for even more accurate frequency response
    • 1" Neodymium soft dome tweeter

    Sounds good

    Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 6 G2 Limited Edition Studio Monitor - Blue:

    GOOD
    MONITORS
    I bought these at a cool price. I'm thinkin maybe it's because they were blems or B Stock. The paint on the plastic face was a little bumpy. Looks like a rattle can job. Also, it didn't match the color of the rest of the enclosure. There was quite a difference. The enclosure paint was a greenish blue. Other than that, the build quality is similar to that of competing chinese built monitors. The only significant difference is the quality of the sound. Waaaaay better than the M-Audio's. I was disappointed to discover a undefeatable 40hz high pass filter. I make music with information down to the 20HZ range and I need my monitors to try and recreate this. M-audio does the same thing. They do it to protect their woofers from over-excursion. Understandable I suppose but a turn off for me. I was pleased upon listening, despite this issue, they didn't have the exaggerated treble and boomy bass like the M-Audio's so things still sound linear and very listenable. The midrange resolution is where they shine. They also revealed previous mixing mistakes. They get reasonably loud. The KRK logo lights up. These monitors lack any useful controls. The treble pad on the back is useless. They say you need it when your room is too live. BS if you ask me. If a monitor has flat frequency response out the box you don't need to adjust anything except the bass. Even then you should treat your room and position your self and your speakers better before going to the EQ. A continuously variable high pass filter to help integrate with a subwoofer would be the most useful addition to this monitor set. I suppose all of my issues with this set are acceptable at this price point. To expect perfection I suppose I should have gotten the expose's or VXT's. If you dont need a subwoofer and just want to mix well for a fair price, grab 'em.

    Good speakers, good price, good service...can't lose!

    By Jeff Warren

    Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 6 G2 Limited Edition Studio Monitor - Blue:

    Great speakers that won't empty your wallet (or max your credit card).
    RCA, 1/4" TRS, and XLR jacks are nice, so no need to piece together adapters
    The level and tone controls are also nice for adjusting to whatever sized space you have.
    A foam, skid-proof pad is glued to the bottom (good idea KRK) to dampen vibrations and keep the speakers from scooting off of whatever surface you set them on.
    This is my first set of studio monitors, so I have nothing else to compare them to. (Probably can't really compare different monitors anyway unless you have them side-by-side.)
    But I don't have any complaints with the Rokit 6's - they sound great!
    I got these on special - the Rokit 6 Blue "Special Edition" for the same regular price as the Rokit 5.
    I'd say that's a pretty good value.

    Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 6 G2 Limited Edition Studio Monitor - Blue:

    Previously To Buying This Awesome Monitor, I Picked Up A Pair Of Rokit 8's With Stage Stands. I Love The 8's, But Wanted A Monitor For More Of A Mono Mix. I Grabbed A Single 6 & Am Very Pleased With My Purchase. I'd Recommend This To Anyone Who Is Looking To Mix The Higher End. Great Find, Great Buy!

    Go with the Blue if you dare

    By Logan Castle

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 6 G2 Limited Edition Studio Monitor - Blue:

    Great finish and solid build quality. These speakers are very versitile for whatever hook ups you could have and have a great sound. I am using these as an over the top music set up on my computer and run them with a cambridge audio Dac Magic and B&K Ref 5 for control. While not necisary adding a subwoofer behind these is an added bonus. The bass is great down to the 50 hz rating with no distortion. I was orginally worried about the SPL they would put out since they do not have a ton of power behind them, but now i am a believer.
    I bought these speakers completly off of what I read in fourms and this is my first pair of powered monitors. I just pulled them out and I am letting run through their break in period but I am very happy with these. The blue is a high quality finish similar to what you would see on a car paint and looks very cool.
    Very well constructed and they have a following for a reason. There is only a tiney inperfection i noticed on the paint on the inside of a seam between the front and main box. You have to really look for it and I only see it on one of my speakers so its just per chance.
    You would be hard pressed to find a better value then these KRK's at their price point not on sale. With the price they are going for new you should just buy them.
