OVERVIEW

Biamped power and efficient design at a remarkable price.

The drivers are electronically crossed over and biamped for increased efficiency. All of this is housed in the RP-8's attractive speaker cabinet with radiused corners that reduce edge diffraction, resulting in better audio imaging. The rear input panel has RCA, 1/4" TRS, and XLR connectors.

Great speakers! Fact: they will improve your mixes! If you're still using home speaker or computer speakers to mix then yes, these will blow your mind. They help to get those TRUE and ACCURATE mixes for playback on all other systems. But if you do have the money- try some ALESIS or other high end monitors. Because these are just a little wee bit harsh in the bright/high-mid range. Very nice looking, sleek and professional. Though I could have done without the Rockit 8 logo, as it looks just a little bit cheesy. I got the powered sub too, and it's great to know what's happening in those low frequencies. EASY TO SET UP! GREAT FIRST MONITORS!!! Don't forget stands. These MO-FO's are big. Worth the money.

Fairly balanced response at the extremes, but with a hump in the midrange. There's clearly a resonance that hasn't been tamed in this design that becomes apparent in the mid octaves of female vocals. Playing an instrument such a guitar through them also reveals this resonance. Maybe I received a defective pair. I've examined the internals, and the amp uses an EI transformer instead of the more common and higher quality toroid, and a minimal buffer of capacitance for low frequency extension unfortunately. I simply think they could have done better for the price. I'll check out the Events and MAudios...

Worth twice as much! (But don't tell KRK that)

By Chris Geo

from Dallas, TX

These are by FAR the BEST monitors in the price range and beat many that cost twice and three times as much. The sound is stunning, crystal clear and the design etc. are GREAT! I've had mine for about four years. I'm tempted to upgrade to the G2's but I really love these monitors. I baby them too. A word of advice, KEEP THE BOX/PACKING MATERIAL IN CASE YOU HAVE TO MOVE THEM. You'll fall in love with these and baby them if you take pride in your equipment.The design is solid and not cheap by any means. The Sub is solid too! No complaints what so ever.

I tryed about 10 other higher priced and Studio Standard type monitors right along side these babys. I will tell you that these speakers sounded smoother than them all They are close to the V8 models but cost friendly. I have been in the studio using these for two weeks now at an average of 12 hours / day and my ears are thanking me. These have a great low end base tone and a sweet mellow mid to high (not harsh). I say don't keep thinking, Get um!!!

This is what I know...

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I use these when I make mix tapes, beats using reason, or connected to a digital piano. The frequency response is excellent. There is no interference detected and they give a good accurate sound. Keep in mind that most of what I do is digital and that a good way to judge studio monitors is with acoustic recordings. Though the generation 2 versions are probably better.

Do you want truth in your mixes?

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Then look no further, i bought these for my stand alone recording unit {tascam dp-02} I'm no pro at mixing but I am very pleased with what i have done with these. But know this, if your tight on space , these babies are big. Built very solid about 30lbs a piece. If mine were to go out tommorow i would buy them again.

Rock it baby!!!

Very easy on the ears and very accurate representation of what you will hear on al systems small to large. I picked up a pair of rocket 8's from Guitar Center San Jose, Ca for my Tascam 2488 and boy all my mixes have come to life. I have recorded my CD and 6 other groups cd's using these baby's and have came out with awesome mixes. Pick up a pair today and bring your mixes to life.

Quick Clarification for you

By Brian-AmN5u

from Minneapolis, MN

Just in case you are wondering, the price is for 1 monitor. Typically, speakers are sold in pairs, however not in this case.These monitors are HUGE and sound as great as they look. Multiple inputs make this even better.

True Sound

By Axeye

from Boca Raton, FL

I did a lot of research prior to buying the Rokit 8 monitors, and I'm happy I spent a little extra for these great speakers. The sound is true at any volume level I try to use. They can put out plenty of volume for a small studio. I couldn't be happier!

Simply Fantastic!

By JRGZ

from Tucson, AZ

See all my reviews

These are flat, my rock mixes come to life, i was using Alesis Monitor One before KRK RP8, now i have a better translation of my mixes to other systems, the HF knob in the back it's very handy if you have a reverberant room or a very dry room, the build quality is awesome, like tanks and very heavy, and they look sexy too, there's nothing better in this price range, Go for it! ;)
