Kings of G3 hill.

KRK has redesigned its wildly popular Rokit series of studio monitors, providing a broader frequency response, a new cabinet design, an adjustment in power for better balance, and several other enhancements. All three models feature a front-firing port that provides low frequency extension without boundary coupling, an improved speaker voicing for even more accurate frequency response, a 1" silk dome tweeter, and an Aramid glass composite woofer. They are lightweight, low profile and are offered at a price that makes professional-level monitoring affordable for even the most humble studios.

Other monitors have 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 KRK Generation 3 Rokit studio monitor's design 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 SPL's.

A great-sounding monitor doesn't stop with a great cabinet and custom drivers. KRKs 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.

      Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 8" Generation 3:

      I read a bunch of reviews recommending this monitor. Ordered two: both were DOA. Returned them & ordered two more. One worked, the other took two months to fail. Called KRK repair. "[KRK] does not reimburse for shipping." After experiencing a 75% failure rate (in this case), and losing the cost for shipping and time, I realize the value of good service. I don't believe warranty service should cost the customer, and I don't recommend these speakers, or anything else by KRK.
      The sound? Meh. I got more bass response (and more control options) out of a pair of M-Audio BX-8s. The KRKs have been a lousy experience.

        Comments about KRK Rokit Powered 8" Generation 3:

        These monitors I would consider the top of the line for Novice/Intermediate studios. They are clear enough that you can use them for just about anything you need studio monitors for. If you are a severe audiophile and sensitive to every nuance, you MAY see a benefit in goign to a higher caliber speaker. The point is for most audiences in recording today, these will be better than anything your listeners will use to hear it. If it sounds good on these, it will sound good on just about everything else. The only cons to them are the use in conjunction with the 10s sub-woofer and cabling and the tendency to give a loud thud when your audio interface comes online but that goes for nearly all monitors so no big deal.
