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.

  • 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
  • Peak SPL: 106 dB
  • Unbalanced RCA / Balanced 1/4" TRS and XLR inputs
  • Proprietary waveguide for superior stereo imaging
  • Lightweight glass-aramid composite woofer
  • Clear midrange and tight bass
  • Low & high frequency adjustment for great voicing control
  • Adjustability for optimal room acoustics & mix translation

Great for mixing those bass heavy dance tunes or hard rock hooks. I am a Sam Ash Reviewer

Great sounds, cool looking speakers


You can use these KRKs as beefy computer speakers, studio monitors or just a small, portable powerhouse. Great low-end for 5-inch woofers. Clear, loud, inexpensive and portable. What more could you ask for? I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.

Great for Rap and Bassdrops


This monitor is great for home recording, I've found for the mixes of rap and metal that I do the low end response is very giving. I also like the design as well. You could get away with just having one of these and still be completely satisfied working on any mix. I reccomend these for anyone just getting into recording but who also needs a lot of low end.

Great Production Playback Boxes


The KRK Gen 3 RoKit monitors are a great, low volume, production playback monitor. While not flat, reference monitors, designed as primary mix-down monitors, the KRK's have a very specific purpose that they perform well at doing. These are designed to either be a set of B Monitors, monitors that are used to check a mix, after the mix is perfected on flat reference monitors, or do be used as beat production monitors. The KRK's are not the loudest monitors in their class, and far from flat in the frequency response, but if you're looking for some boxes that are tuned very much like a car stereo system or Beats headphones (the most common playback speakers consumers will hear your music on), then the KRK's deserve a spot on your desk.

More boom for your buck


The incredible thing about KRK Rokits is their ability to maintain accuracy while providing a heavier low-end. That's what makes these monitors ideal for hip-hop, electronic, and some rock recording applications. The high-power tweeter provides a very flat and sharp high-end, while the powerful driver behind the subwoofer gives you the accurate boom you look for when mixing hip hop beats and electronic music. Plus you have to admit, the yellow accents are very stylish. I am a sales associate at Sam Ash Music Hollywood

Great thump!


KRK has a name for making good priced, full sounding monitors. They still are doing a great job at it with these G3s! First, plenty of power, 50 watts total! The woofer sounds great and with deep bass coming from a smaller woofer. Nice rugged build and because of the extra controls on the woofer and tweeter, you can dial in the exact kind of mix you want to get. RCA/XLR/TRS inputs for any kind of cable.

KRK Rokit 5s are a great choice for any studio application. Definetly a more low-end heavy design which is perfect for hip-hop, r&b, gosepl, etc. Theyre compact with great power which makes them one of the best sellers in the industry right now. Get you some now and see for your self! I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music
