        Rock your mix with custom style.

        The exclusive KRK Generation 2 Rokit 5 monitor comes in a custom sleek white color design. Show your dedication to one of the most popular mixing monitors for home studios with these custom colored RP5 monitors. Loaded with the same great features like a front-firing bass port, soft-domed tweeter, and glass aramid composite cone, the G2 Rokit's offer a refined voicing and a new curved baffle that looks great, reduces diffraction and provides even better monitoring accuracy.

        KRK's Rokit G2 (Generation 2) powered studio monitor delivers amazing performance and accuracy for the home or project studio at a very accessible price. The G2 Rokit has radically curved edges which virtually eliminate diffraction and provides a wider sweet spot. The Rokit G2 also features a great looking cabinet with a front-firing bass port 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.

        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 monitor 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 set up. That's why you'll find plenty of input options with your Rokit monitor, 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 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 KRKs world-class studio monitor engineering team, for clear, low-distortion performance.

        Take Control

        While your Generation 2 Rokit leaves the factory voiced to demanding specs, KRK also knows that no two rooms "sound" the same. As such, each Rokit monitor 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 Gen 2 Rockit studio 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

        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 2 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.

        Power Up!

        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.

        Note: Price reflects a single unit.

          Comments about KRK RP5 White Noise Studio Monitor:

          Designed for placement near wall and mixing at low to moderate volume in a minimally treated room. The compact design and color scheme fit on a desk and looks good with a Mac monitor setup. Sound is flat but lacks the low end and volume of an 8" with sub, which would need room treatment. Systems with high gain output should not follow instructions to turn up speaker gain.

            I liked these enough that I bought 4 of them. I use them with a subwoofer and recommend you do too! The white finish looks much better than the standard black/yellow colors in my opinion.

                Comments about KRK RP5 White Noise Studio Monitor:

                I put the RP5's to the test referencing against much larger JBL studio monitors, several pro-level headphones (Sony and Senheiser), and some junky near-field TEAC's they are meant to replace.

                The Good: given the 5-inch woofer, I was very surprised by the excellent, clean lows on these monitors. Compared to the reference speakers/headphones the RP5's lows and mid-range were accurate. Amplification is very clean with plenty of punch--nearly as clean as the JBL's pushed by a Crown amp, and much cleaner than the very muddy TEAC's. Also, construction is excellent--these are solid (and heavier than they look).

                The Bad: high's are just not there (even with the High Level Adjustment set to the max). For example, cymbals that are easily heard in comparison speakers/headphones fall out of the mix in the RP5's. I would have never thought that the high-end would be the problem in these small monitors.

                If KRK would address the issue with the tweeters, they would have a winner. As is, however, I would recommend looking at other near-field monitors.
