As part of KRK's Rockit series, the Rokit RP5 G2 is the next evolutionary step in a long line of successful and respected home studio monitors. Investing in a pair of accurate monitors may be the most important purchase you make for your home studio. Luckily, there's an active monitor that's been around the block more than a few times: the KRK RP5G2 Rokit. These "Generation 2" KRK RP monitors are as affordable and user-friendly as ever, and now they're even more accurate.
Easy To Set Up
With the home recording enthusiast in mind, KRK designed the Rokit RP5G2 to make adding accurate monitoring to your setup as hassle-free as possible. Because the RP5G2 is active (self-powered), you won't have to worry about finding or hooking up a separate, matching power amp. The Rokit's internal amplifier ensures maximum driver efficiency for tons of crystal-clear headroom and instant studio integration. With simple volume and high-frequency controls, the RP5G2s provide enough tone shaping to adjust your monitors to different rooms and projects.
Ergonomic Design For Home Studios
If you're concerned that two controls aren't enough to combat bad room acoustics -- don't be! KRK incorporated several simple design elements to the RP5G2 cabinet in order to eliminate the most common monitor placement issues. For example, rear-firing bass ports, which typically extend a speaker's low-frequency range, tend to form "boundary-coupling" when situated near a wall, resulting in over-hyped bass response. Front-firing ports keep this…
from being an issue with the Generation 2 Rokits. The cabinet design also helps eliminate diffraction inherent in traditional box-shaped monitors. When sound waves hit those sharp corners, they start to bounce around and "muddy up" the sound, but the KRK RP5 G2 incorporates the same curved edges as the higher-end KRKs to virtually eliminate diffraction issues. These two clever elements result in a sound that's more accurate and worry-free than other home studio reference monitors can deliver.
Generation 2: Improved Drivers, Improved SoundThat classic yellow glass aramid composite woofer is still there, and its companion neodymium tweeter has been re-voiced for an even more neutral -- and therefore, more accurate -- performance. KRK also improved the tweeter's wave-guide design. High-end diffusion is even more directional and phase problems are cut down significantly. The result is a clearer impression of those ever-important transients that can otherwise wreck recorded instruments like cymbals and acoustic guitar, and can undesirably color the "air" in a vocal track. All in all, you simply get a clearer image of your mix with the second-gen KRK Rokits.

As a recording engineer, you need to trust your instincts, your ears, and most of all, your reference monitors. If your speakers aren't providing you with an accurate image, you won't know what you're listening to, and your mix will suffer.
So if you're shopping for your first studio reference monitors, trust in the name that's been trusted for decades by engineers around the world: KRK.
