OVERVIEW

The next generation of Rokit monitors - with even greater sonic accuracy!

KRK Generation 2 Powered 6 Rokit Studio Monitors set a new standard with even better performance and accuracy. These Rokit 2-way monitors contain KRK proprietary woofers and tweeters.

Speakers, crossovers, and amplifiers are tuned for maximum performance: improved top-end frequency response, increased articulation, better imaging, faster attack times, and less distortion. The 1" Neodymium Soft Dome tweeter is more natural and less harsh than metal-domed tweeters, resulting in reduced ear fatigue and more natural mixes. The Glass Aramid Composite Cone Woofer maximizes excursion performance without compromising reliability and minimizes distortion. KRK even improved the speaker voicing of new Rokit (no simple feat considering how great Rokit's have always been in this regard). Simply put, the KRK Rokit G2 is the most accurate monitor in its price range.

New Radically Curved Front Baffle Design
The new Rokit speakers look different, so they can sound better, and in a wider "sweet spot." Traditional rectangular speakers with square or slightly rounded edges 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 Rokit Generation 2 Series monitor eliminates this issue with radically engineered curved surfaces, so diffraction is virtually eliminated. Simply put, you'll get better sound in a wider area.

Recessed High Frequency Waveguide
KRK has designed a superior tweeter waveguide 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 waveguide is a critical component to great sound, and one key to KRK's award winning performance.

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

Newly Designed Rigid Wood Cabinet
While the radically designed curved front panel with flush and radius surfaces provide excellent imaging characteristics and a much wider sweet spot, the new Rokit's rigid wood cabinet construction improves overall structural integrity, extended low frequency response, and increased damping characteristics.

Multiple Input Options
You've Got Connections: At KRK focus is your mix. But it doesn't stop at creating accurate monitors. KRK lives this stuff and appreciates 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 that are sure to accommodate any studio environment. So if it's RCA, Quarter-Inch (balanced/unbalanced), or XLR inputs you require—Rokit has got you covered.

High Frequency Level Control
While your Rokit Generation 2 leaves the factory voiced to demanding specs, KRK also knows that no two rooms "sound" the same. As such, each 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.

Front-Firing Port
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. Just like its big brothers (VXT and Expose) the G2 Rokit includes 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.

Input Gain Control
Why compromise gain structure to achieve a comfortable listening level? As musicians and recording people themselves, KRK knows that your monitor has to play nice with other components in your system, which is why KRK gave RokitG2 an ultracompatible Input Volume Control that provides an adjustable gain range from +6dB to -30dB. Just another way RokitG2 lets you focus on your mix, and not on compatibility concerns.

Quality

I just bought these monitors and am very happy with my purchase. Firstly, They are built very solidly. The knobs and plugs on the back are all very solid. I haven't had time to use them for mixing yet, and will update when I do. From what I have heard from them, and how solidly they are built, I'm sure the will work very well.

Great Monitors

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I got these monitors about a month ago and I am very happy with them. I've had great mixes. Ive read a few blogs bashing these monitors because of the color, but the color of the monitor doesnt add or take away from the mix. These Limited KRKs are a steal for the price.

The KRK RP6 G2 monitors provide great imaging and clarity at a very nice price, probably the best among it's price peers.

Beware misleading power ratings...

First of all, these are excellent monitors. Well worth the price. They are perfect for home or project studios. My only negative comment comes from the product description on most every website that sells these monitors. It says they are 100-watt biamped. I called KRK directly and spoke to a guy who said that's DYNAMIC power, not RMS power. The actual specs are 50 watts to the woofer and 18 watts to the tweeter. It's also in the owner's manual. The peak power is 100 watts, but average RMS is only 68. Just an FYI.
