The largest and most powerful model in the Rokit series, the KRK RP8 Rokit 8 Generation 3 studio monitor is an excellent 2-way powered speaker from a company with a long-standing reputation for audio design and innovation. The RP8 G3 pushes 100 watts through a 8-inch woofer and a 1-inch soft dome tweeter. The monitor has a frequency response of 35 Hz - 30 kHz and an impressive Max Peak SPL of 109 dB.

The Coolest-Looking Speakers on the Market Also Sound Fantastic

The 8-inch woofer in the RP8 G3 is an Aramid glass composite woofer with KRK's trademark yellow covering. It handles 75 watts of the total output. The 1-inch woofer is of a soft dome design and channels the other 25 watts.

Straightforward I/O

The rear of the RP8 G3 has a 1/4-inch balanced TRS input, and a balanced XLR. There is also an unbalanced RCA input.

Tweak The Speakers To Wherever You Go

There are separate High Frequency and Low Frequency level adjustment knobs on the rear of the speaker also, which allow you to pad each the drivers with an additional +/- 2dB. This is especially useful for making fine-tune adjustments to your sound based on the characteristics of the room where you have the plugged in. A System Volume knob allows you to pad the master signal up an additional +6 dB or drop -30 dB as needed.

Throughtful and Solid Construction

KRK's Rokit Generation 3 speakers are made from medium-density fiberboard material covered in black vinyl wrap. They are crafted from a custom composite that ensures a strong forward throw with no cabinet sound coloring the mix. They are also durable and will transport easily if you need to move your listening station from place to place.

What Makes Rokits the Home Studio Standard?

Overall, the Rokit Generation 3 powered speakers were designed to provide peerless clarity on midrange and vocal while delivering substantially extended bass response. The class A/B amplifier is a totally proprietary design. No less unique is the waveguide design, which ensures detailed sound imaging. The front-firing bass port was designed to reduce boundary coupling so that positioning the monitors in unpredictable rooms would be achievable with far less diffraction distortion. A factory-installed foam pad keeps the speaker and the resting surface isolated from one another, to eliminate cross-resonance that muddies the sound.

Features:

- 8-inch Aramid Glass Composite woofer
- 1-inch soft dome tweeter
- Class A-B amplifier
- 1 x 1/4-inch balanced TRS input
- 1 x balanced XLR
- 1 x unbalanced RCA
- +/- 2 dB High Frequency and Low Frequency level adjustment knobs

Part of the third generation of KRK's ubiquitous Rokit line of studio monitors, RP8 G3 speakers have been receiving excellent reviews since their release -- and you'll understand why the first time you plug them in!

4 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "KRK RP8'S - O M G !!!!"
Overall: These speakers are trully unreal. I have been working with home studio work for some time now and these have blown my mind away. I had the 5's and the 6's but hands down, these 8's hold their weight. I use a Behringer mixer board and plug in my POD HD500 on a stereo channel while playing some tracks previously recorded and the highs are sweet and not piercing and the lows really put in a rumble. I only have each of the 8's power half way and i literally make the snare rumble. The mixer board's master volume at around 60% - 70% and my work area rumbles, you can barely hear your self think and yet no distorded sound. Really crisp. These speakers are awesome for home studio work. If you have the $$$, invest in these babies. ZZounds has always treated me good. I have bought about 80% of my gear through them and the idea that you can get these babies while you pay is da bomb!!! If you're serious about quality sound for your quality work, these speakers are it. These are not your average amateur studio speakers!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "BIG bass, otherwise very flat response. Powerful."
Overall: Good cop - bad cop. My home studio uses a PA system and a small MP3 player as the bad cop sound, and now, the 8" G3s along with a home theater system for the good cop part of the sound so as to mix/master to satisfy contrasting environments and gear. Initially, I had considered buying a pair of 10s and a pair of 6s to get a full account of the entire frequency spectrum. The 10's freq range did not go to the 30khz range like the 6s ... and the 8s too. So, I settled for just the 8s. Glad I did. These Rokit 8s are quite the powermeisters. The bass is overwhelming and I had to turn it down a pinch. The PA system distortion sure becomes obvious when compared to the Rokit monitors. The home theater's crispy, difficult to listen to highs are even more evident when compared to the exceptionally smooth and easy highs of these monitors. I have no idea how these monitors might measure up to the big name brands, sound-wise. I would wager that these KRKs will outlive/outlast any of the fancy high dollar boutique brands though. They do seem to be indestructible.
