KRK RP5G2 Rokit G2 Active Monitor

The KRK RP5G2 Rokit G2 Powered Studio Monitor takes this KRK design to new heights. All of the great stuff that Rokits have been known for, including front-firing bass port, soft-domed tweeter, glass aramid composite yellow cone are still there, but the G2 Rokits feature refined voicing and a new curved baffle that looks great, reduces diffraction and provides even better monitoring accuracy.

Features:

- Radically curved front plate design virtually eliminates diffraction distortion
- Waveguide design provides amazing detail and imaging
- Front-firing port provides low freq extension without boundary coupling
- New speaker voicing for even more accurate frequency response
- 1-inch Neodymium soft dome tweeter
- Glass Aramid Composite Cone Woofer

Even More Accurate Than Before

KRK engineers and listening panel took the Generation 2 Rokits' speaker voicing to even more accurate levels. What you hear is what you are intended to hear, coloration is not part of the spec. This performance is brought to you by drivers that are custom-designed by KRK's world-class studio monitor engineering team, for clear, low-distortion performance.

The Recessed tweeters may look the same, but they don't perform the same. KRK has designed a superior tweeter wave guide for the Rokit that provides optimal high frequency pattern control and focuses the sound outward, away from the cabinet. More conventional designs direct sound along the plane of the cabinet where waveform interaction can cause phase problems and increased diffraction. KRK knows a properly engineered high frequency wave guide is a critical component to great sound, and one key to their award winning performance.

"AMAZINGLY GOOD MONITORS - BUT ACOUSTICALLY TREAT AND TUNE YOUR ROOM!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I am very happy with these. I'd buy them again. But the huge improvement in playback sound came after I positioned the monitors correctly in my studio, added bass traps, and EQ notched the one remaining room boom frequency. Now the monitor sound is as close to perfect as I can reasonably expect.

Sound
Spectacularly even, balanced sound. The mids and highs are smooth and clear, and the bass is fat and punchy - in fact, the bass specs on these 5" speakers are only slightly less than the specs on KRK's 8" speakers, so little is lost. The only slight downside is they don't put out much at 12kHz and above, so they probably shouldn't be used to fine to the upper top end "air" in your mix, but who cares. After everything's compressed and down sampled, the air gets all squeezed out anyway! The objective of monitors is to provide a complete yet neutral representation of your music, which I believe these monitors do. These are small speakers and are best suited for near field use, so I have them situated less than 3' apart. The speakers must be placed at ear level, and they must be placed in the right position in your mixing room. Also, you really have to acoustically treat your mixing room in order to obtain accurate sound from any monitors, regardless of price. I installed a handful GIK bass trap panels at various places in my small office/studio and now these small, inexpensive monitors sound damn close to perfect at the listening position. I'm read more sure that Genelecs probably sound slightly better for 5 or 10 times more money.

Features
Who needs features on monitors? You shouldn't be messing with features. You should use small near field monitors to give you a more or less accurate representation of what you're doing. I don't use any features.

Ease of Use
Simple.

Quality
I've only owned them for 2 months but they seem well built and solid.

Value
Unbelievably good value.

Manufacturer Support
Haven't had to deal with KRK, so I can't comment.
