        8" powered monitor with refined voicing, reduced diffraction, and better monitoring accuracy.

        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.

        Features

        • 1" neodymium soft dome tweeter with ferro fluid
        • Glass aramid composite cone woofer
        • Radically curved front plate design virtually eliminates diffraction distortion

        Great Speakers

        By eraserfish

        from Germany

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

        Great sound at low volume, tons of accurate bass, full of information (especially junk in your mix), sturdy build, and great price.
        I've recorded in a lot of studios, and had several of my own, and as to clarity of sound I'm really blown away by these speakers. I've had a tendency to use headphones to mix due to either noise, financial, or space reasons in the past, but these were a great deal, and sound really great at low volumes. I have a high dollar set of headphones and compared the sound of them to these and was amazed at all the information I was getting out of the Rokits that wasn't even in my headphone mix! I'm not sure exactly how flat these are compared to other monitors beacause the bass is so good and so low, but I will say that they don't sugar coat anything. You hear every little mistake, fret buzz or even little glitches in keyboard patches. I was debating over the 6 or 8 inch versions and had been comparing the Mackie's, Yamaha, and Behringer monitors of similar price. They are a little bigger than I had imagined from seeing them online, but they are worth the space in your studio. Somewhere along the line of triangulating the speakers to my seated position in my studio, I found myself more lost in my mix than I ever have been with headphones. I don't know how much better monitors can get or if I would even know the difference if something was better. I am very pleased esecially at this price.
        Solid speakers that come with some knobs to tweak and 220v-110 volt selector, very cool.
        For this quality, the best deal around.

        Very nice monitors

        A very nice monitor. Sound quality is excellent and I like the fact that the ferrari grey model is a little more subtle looking than the normal yellow cones.

        So Far, So Good

        By Jeb Smithwick

        from Indianapolis, IN

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

        Give them a shot, your mix will love you for it.
        I picked up a pair of the Rokit Powered 8 G2 Limited Edition Studio Monitors when they were the 'Stupid Deal of the Day'. I just got them yesterday and must say that, so far, I am impressed. My prior monitors were 4", so this is a drastic difference. I instantly had to start tweaking the low end of my mixes. These monitors provide superior low end clarity. As noted by Rokit, these monitors do not add coloration to your mix, don't boost low end or add volume. It seems that you truely hear your mix, the way you mixed it. The variety of inputs is impressive, as is the ability to ajust the input volume. The ability to tweak the HF volume to compensate for your room is also nice. And to top it off, these monitors just look great! In my opinion, the Rockit Powered 8 G2's would be a great addition to any project studio. I'm currently using these monitors for near-field monitoring with:

        MacBook Pro
        ProTools LE 8.0.4
        Digi 003
        Appear to be well built, solid monitors.
        Again, I picked these up as 'The Stupid Deal of the Day' so I got them slightly cheaper than regular price, but regardless they seem to be a great value.
