KRK Classic 8 Professional Active 2-Way Studio Monitor

KRK's time-tested RP8G3 monitor lives on in the Classic 8! Get a proven powered speaker with that unmistakable yellow cone for a musician-friendly price tag.

Building on KRK's legacy of sonic accuracy and performance, KRK CLASSIC 8 powered studio monitors incorporate over 30 years of innovation from the world's leading studio monitor manufacturer. Borrowing concepts from previous ROKIT lines -- some of the most used studio monitors in the world, the CLASSIC 8 defaults to a flat frequency solution towards more critical listening -- translating into more accurate mixes. With the optional ability to engage the +2 dB KRK Bass Boost, the CLASSIC 8 can also provide the enhanced bass response and sound that music creators around the world have loved for years.

The CLASSIC 8 is an active (self-powered) two-way studio monitor that utilizes a 1" textile soft dome tweeter paired with a 8" glass aramid woofer. The built-in power amplifiers provide a total of 100 watts of power, with a 75 watt amp driving the woofer, and a 25 watt amp for the tweeter.
