Hear everything loud and clear with the KRK VXT8 active studio monitors. Designed to widen your studio's sweet spot, KRK's flagship monitor is impressively bi-amped with 180 Watts and packs an 8-inch Kevlar woofer for serious lows, plus a domed tweeter for sublime highs. Whether you use the VXT8s as nearfield monitors in your studio's control room, or as your trusted speakers in your home mixing environment, these powerful monitors will provide accurate sound reproduction you can rely on for a range of monitoring applications.

There's That Sweet Spot

No matter what kind of music you pump through the VXT8, you'll be rewarded with a generous sweet spot and extended bass response that's clean and articulate. These studio monitors feature a domed silk Ferrite tweeter for fast transient response, along with an updated woofer design with a stiffer, lighter cone that provides low distortion and seriously awesome low-end performance. Because both the tweeter and the woofer have vented formers, you can push them really hard without them overheating or compromising your mix with the effects of power compression.

Looks Good and Sounds Better

Like other monitors in KRK's VXT Series, this one sports a curvy ABS enclosure that enhances the VXT8's overall performance with extended low-end, superior imaging characteristics, low resonance, a higher level of structural integrity, and reduced port turbulence. Its cabinet design features a baffle contour that eliminates diffraction distortion, and the front-firing slotted bass port annihilates boundary coupling, so even at high SPLs, the VXT8 is able to deliver stellar lows for all your bass monitoring needs. KRK's VXT8 will complement any music in any room.

KRK thought of everything when designing the VXT8. Adjustable HF and LF controls let you tailor the monitors to your space -- tweak the VXT8's high- and low-frequency response to compensate for your room's acoustics, the monitor's placement within the room, listening fatigue from long mixing sessions, and more. Tamper-resistant switch covers keep your settings in place, integrated Omni Mount support offers secure mounting options, and ground lift eliminates potential hum and buzz.

Product Description

KRK's VXT Series of monitors utilize a visually striking enclosure design that is equally functional -- providing low resonance, improved structural integrity and extended low-end, slotted ports for reduced port turbulence. The VXT8's sleek curved cabinet provides excellent imaging characteristics and a wider "sweet spot," helping you achieve a level of precision.

The domed tweeter (comprised of true silk for fast transient response) and the woofer design (with its stiffer, lighter cone that provides low distortion and extended low-end) both have vented formers to remove heat and reduce the effects of power compression -- enabling these monitors to maintain their sonic signature.

With uncompromising attention to detail that includes tamper resistant switch covers, integrated Omni Mount support and more, the VXT Series is an outstanding choice for a broad range of monitoring applications.

Features:

- Biamplified powered monitor with 60-watt high-frequency amp and 120-watt low-frequency amp
- 8-inch woven Kevlar woofer in signature KRK yellow
- 1-inch silk dome Ferrite tweeter
- XLR-1/4" combination inputs
- Wide, flat frequency response of 37 Hz - 22 kHz +/-1.5dB
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (31 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Love 'em!"
Sound: Awesome! They made an immediate difference in the way my mixes came out. Like night and day. Really convinced me I made the right decision. These will not make your music sound better, they will make you a better musician. Feature: Being able to adjust the levels of each monitor helps them adapt to my less then ideal environment. I was concerned having them near a wall would create a muddy mess, but after fine tuning them, they sound great! Ease of Use: Having never built a studio setup before, I found it pretty easy to set these up. Plug and play seems to be an appropriate description. Other then being pretty heavy and having a bad back, I had no problems. Quality: These are solid. They feel like they are built like a tank. Big difference from some other monitors I was considering. No rattling, not cosmetic defects... and pretty damn sexy to look at! Value: I almost went with the RPG5's because of cost concerns, but since I found these here on Zzounds, I had to go for it, and I am so glad I did. The quality and sound will help if I ever expand my setup to a larger location. These are not the least expensive alternative out there but after using these and knowing what I know now, I would have kicked myself for not getting these. Manufacturer Support: So far, I haven't needed it, but I do wish there was a grill attachment for these like I have seen for the VXT4's and VXT 6's..... The Wow Factor: These are gorgeous! Even when they are off I enjoy sitting in front of them. It's rare to find something that works well and looks great doing it. I get alot of "Damn!!" comments when people first see them, then I turn them on and let them do their magic! Overall: I have a friend that has these and has made some great sounding productions with them so I knew what they were capable of, but being my first set of monitors, I was a little worried about sinking so much money into a product, but these turned out to be everything I was hoping they would be.

"BUY THEM IF YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT CUSTOMER SERVICE"
Overall: These monitors are awesome, I have no complaints about the sound. KRK's service is the worst service I have ever had in my life. I've been waiting 2 months for them to ship me a replacement part and every time I call them they just say they don't know where the part is and they'll get on it. I would not recommend this product to anyone since other monitor companies with excellent customer support make an equal product.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.

Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
