        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

        KRK's Rokit monitors reveal all. Order now and mix with confidence.

        Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 6 Generation 2 Studio Monitor (Each):

        I bought these monitors used. I was looking for something affordable for my home studio, and especially something that would give me the REAL sound, no additives. I spent tons of time on the web doing research and somehow ended up with these! And I dont regret it, I like how KRK only makes so many monitors, you dont have to go choosing from 30 diff kinds, no, they just make a couple lines and each with several diff sizes and thats all! And thats exactly what I like, because some other manufacturers seem to make new products every month, at the end, u realized the monitor you bought last year is old and outdated. But Ive had these for a while now and so far Im not planning on getting any new ones for a while.

        I have the limited edition gray ones, and they look fantastic, they're not yellow like the normal ones, but either way, they give me a very neutral sound, when I mix my music I dont have to worry about the lows being too exposed or the high end being to high.

        If you're looking for something loud and not for just recording, then you may want the 8 inchers, or you may want the sub that KRK offers (10") but other than that, for my room (14 x 14) they do just fine with my firestudio (presonus) interface.

        Oh and i bet you could use these monitors as anvils.. they're rock hard!

        Solid project studio monitor

        By John Barr

        from Chicago

        Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 6 Generation 2 Studio Monitor (Each):

        You have probably noticed I have not mentioned anything about sound quality... That is because it really depends on your back ground, if you are new to using reference monitors or have never used high end monitors than these KRK's are really going to impress you. If you're like me and have been lucky enough to use high end monitors than you will find the KRK's a little muddy and a bit lacking in stereo seperation. "Not bad" is the best way I can descibe them, what they lack in sound they more than make up for it in price and features. So if you are looking for a feature rich, well built, and inexpensive monitor that put out solid sound for a home/project studio, the KRK's are for you.
        If you are looking for bang for the buck these are for you. Multiple connection options, gain control, and a HF adjustment knob for dialing them in to best suit your room.
        I have owned a pair of these for over a year now and not a single problem. They are built like a tank inside and out. Just to give you an idea, I left them on over night and when I went in the studio the next day I powered up my mixing board without checking to see if the monitors were off and POP! a very loud, very nasty audio spike. I thought for sure the moitors would be trashed but not a single crackle after it happened and that was eight months ago.
        For the features, build quality, and price they are hard to beat.

        One Happy Musicman

        Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 6 Generation 2 Studio Monitor (Each):

        I own the Red ones and when I first got them I was completely blown away with the detail I was missing both in my mixes and general listening. I have since gotten different ones (too good of an ebay deal to pass up some KRK V6 Series 2, with a 10S sub), and I like the V6's a little better, they handle bass a bit better, the highs seem more accurate and the separation of frequencies also seems a bit better. Although I never would have thought the ROKIT's were at all muddy before I compared them, after A/B testing them, the ROKIT's sounded slightly muddy to me. Although I havn't A/B'd them, with the Behringer Truths, I have listened to some Truths, they are much louder and have substantial more bass, but seem significantly less detailed. Add a 10" sub and these ROKIT's will blow you away. The 6" ROCKIT's on their own are not super loud, especially if your wanting intense bass, but when used for what they were made for, they have plenty of volume. Although not really intended to be used for this purpose, I once DJ'd a dance (maybe 100' long by 60' wide room, 30' or so tall) using these and bass amp (Fender rumble 100) to fill in the low end, the mids and highs really carried and not only was there plenty of volume, it sounded quite good. I am super impressed with KRK's service. My ROKITS have been just fine, but I blew a tweeter on one of my V6's, the only online dealer I could find wanted nealry $60, I called KRK and they sent me a tweeter at no charge, and that was for used V6's I got on ebay! Bottom line when it comes to detail, these are pretty sweet monitors in this price range.

        Starting a home studio right

        By fawwx

        from superior, wi

        Ask me a question

        Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 6 Generation 2 Studio Monitor (Each):

        These speakers are super nice. You won't regret the investment. One warning though - as with all powered speakers, make sure you have a true mixer pluged into these that can get them up to line level, and always turn the speakers on last and off first.
        One may not expect features on a speaker, but this may have more than the average music geek would even understand. Gain, HF controls to adjust according to the room environment, an unbalanced rca line in, a balanced/unbalanced 1/4in line in, and an XLR in. Super slick. Basically, I can keep all my radio shack adapters in that converse box behind the desk.
        Again, I'm no guru but these speakers are heavy. Heavy speakers = heavy components. The sound quality is astounding. The can handle a good chunk of bottom end. The highs are crisp and the mids roll nice. They don't replace an actual subwoofer but then again, you wouldn't want them to.
        200 bucks a piece?!? You kidding!? That's as affordable as it gets for speakers of this calibur.

        Fantastic Monitors!

        By M Johnson

        from Iowa

        Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 6 Generation 2 Studio Monitor (Each):

        If you are self producing or recording on computer speakers or headphones, these speakers can singlehandedly give you a HUGE quality boost in your finished products. They will allow you to listen much more accurately and fix things you might not have noticed in your mixes before. So like everything having to do with music... use your ears -- and these will help you do that.
        Nice variety of monitoring inputs -- Balanced XLR AND TRS, plus an unbalanced RCA. Removable power cable is always nice too.
        For the price, you'd have a hard time beating these. They are very flat sounding, which is what you want so you are hearing your mix and not your speakers. Definitely appear to be well made, and I've had mine about a year now with no problems at all. I would recommend playing about 4 days straight of music through them when you get them to break them in a bit. Mine took a LONG time before they seemed to 'settle in'.
        Again, you'd have a really hard time beating these unless you spent a lot more money. Could you get something better? Sure. Are these bad because they don't cost a huge amount each? Not at all -- they will stack up with monitors that are much more expensive. A lot of pro studios seem to use these as a second nearfield monitoring option.

        Excellent Monitors

        By Juno-QnFmW

        from New Mexico

        Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 6 Generation 2 Studio Monitor (Each):

        This is my first set off studio monitors but I have been in the production game for several years. These monitors are beautiful and when reading reviews about how they sound like crap because they have a flat response is kinda misleading. I think they sound great, but maybe thats just me or I think my music sounds good regardless.

        I Love this monitors! I love the fact they have all the connectors so you can choose if you want to use RCA, XLR or whatever your options are! They Sound REALLY good for the price! plus they have the High Frequency Knob so you can kind of Tune them to your room if you have a home studio! Very proud I got this because they sound great!

        The Coup de Grace for my home studio

        Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 6 Generation 2 Studio Monitor (Each):

        After much research and deliberation, I decided to upgrade my studio monitors and went with a pair of the 6" Rokits (special edition white). Not only are they aesthetically pleasing and professional, but the sound is as flat as promised and has completely removed the "guesswork" from my mixes. I was concerned I was going to get too much bass response due to the kevlar cones and the hefty weight of each speaker (which is considerable) but I was pleasantly surprised to find that what you hear is primarily what you get. No problems with bass phasing or ear fatigue which was a large concern as I have hearing damage (only one working ear) and fatigue incredibly easy. I also require another person for mixing for obvious reasons. They too could not believe how accurate the Rokits are. My only slight complaint and I mean slight, is I would have preferred the power switches positioned on the front of the speaker (instead of the back) as reaching behind isn't always the most convenient thing. From everything I read before I purchased these, they have become the industry standard in home and professional studios and have easily replaced the former champions - which are not readily available nor mentionable in this review. I expect to have these for many, many years to come.

        consumer review

        By gunman jim

        from fort worth

        Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 6 Generation 2 Studio Monitor (Each):

        Bought the ghoulishly ugly red things. They have lots of sonic faults to. upper mids, and highs are a little vialed and muddy and have to my preference a tad darker sound. The low and high drivers both a little dark. This is common nature to a lot of chip amps like the TDA7294 and there like, probably not a response problem with with the drivers. An EQ,SUB, and positioning in the room would help. But my first impression was on a card table in a room 25x14' with a portable cd player. The overall presentation simply overpowered the bad environment. Faults and all they sounded wonderful. Beatles, motor head, Philip Glass, Nancy Sinatra. Nothing was disappointing in any way. For the money these are jaw dropping good.

        Can't go wrong...

        By C-Hutch

        from middle / south Georgia

        Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 6 Generation 2 Studio Monitor (Each):

        At this price, you can't go wrong with a pair of these monitors. I've owned a pair of the KRK Rokit Powered 5 before as backups, but I had to borrow a pair of KRK Rokit Powered 6 as my more expensive nearfield monitors had to get some maintenance done after a buzz developed. I'm pleasantly surprised with these monitors. A friend who also does some engineering mentioned how flat he thought they sounded for their size - flat as in frequency response, which is a good thing. Good sound, good quality, good price, what's not to like?
