The KRK Rokit 5 is already one of the most popular studio monitors in the world today, yet its price range keeps it within reach of any budget.

KRK's Rokit 5 G3 (Generation 3) high standard of quality and design make it an easy choice for the engineer of any level to get a professionally-accurate mix. This powered monitor contains a 5” glass-Aramid composite woofer and a 1” soft dome tweeter, delivering a wide frequency spectrum for extended bass response and great vocal  detail.

KRK's own exclusive bi-amped, class A/B amplifier boasts SPL up to 106dB, preventing the transients from distorting the sound, keeping it cleaner at high levels than most monitors in its class. With accurate imaging and a front-firing bass port, your  flexibility in positioning this monitor in the room increases while the surface is designed to reduce diffraction distortion. Even moving a little off-axis doesn't diminish the separation and placement of the sound.

The Rokit 5 G3 also also provides multiple input options to ensure easy integration with any system.

Features:
  • 50 Watts Total Power
  • Bi-amped (30W LF /20W HF) class A/B amp
  • Plenty of headroom with minimal distortion
  • 5” Aramid glass composite woofer
  • Soft-dome tweeter with clear, extended response to 35kHz

      Comments about KRK Rokit 5 G3 Two-Way Active Studio Monitor:

      I've been using the KRK Rokit Series ever since generation one and have gotten a pair of 5's for each generation and although its still great krk trademark sound, they get better with each generation. The lastest, generation 3, have become my main set for making beats on my mpc. I cant express how much I depend on these guys for thorough stereo imaging. The lows are thick and the highs are vibrant. Ive had them a few months now and I recommend this to any beatmaker at home looking to step up the quality in their production.

      Comments about KRK Rokit 5 G3 Two-Way Active Studio Monitor:

      KRK speakers have always been a topic of debate you either love them or you hate them. Many producers swear by them because of the accurate reproduction in the low end bass response and with the release of the G3 models I will agree with that. They tend to run into some accurate reproduction issues in the higher frequency ranges but that can certainly be compensated for. Other than that they are an overall great studio monitor. For a smaller mixing room they will be a great addition.

        If you want to master your mixes like the pros do, you want to use these! They have a very true sound, so what you hear is what will be our end product. These won't let the bass overpower like some other monitors. If you want to get rid of the headphones and hear your mix through monitors, this is the way to go, hands down.

          Comments about KRK Rokit 5 G3 Two-Way Active Studio Monitor:

          I used to have a pair of these in my office, just for playing music off my computer. The sound quality is amazing! Compact, well built studio monitors with 50 watts of total power. Bass response is good, which is hard to find on most small monitors. Great in the studio, but versatile enough to find a lot of other uses. I'm a sales associate at Sam Ash Music Ontario.

          I have a pair of these monitors plugged into my 16-track recorder.
          They have remarkable clarity and are a true 'Zero Reference' monitor, meaning that they won't color your sound, so what you hear is what you will get in the final mix.
          You simply cant get this type of quality mixing from a set of headphones.
          High quality build, great sound and a good price.
