KRK RP6 Rokit Monitors

Premium bookshelf monitors!
When KRK Systems prepares to design a monitor, their primary goal is to deliver a true acoustic interpretation of the mix. In other words, what you put in is exactly what comes out. Their line of Rokit Powered studio monitors is no exception. The RP6 incorporates many of the high-end features found on KRK's premium series products, and delivers them at a price perfect for home- and project-studio budgets.

Precision-matched components
The RP6 Is an active, bi-amped monitor with 50 Watts for the woofer, 18 Watts for the tweeter, and an integrated 2.6 kHz electronic crossover. Unlike passive monitors, KRK specially matches the power section, electronics, and output drivers for streamlined performance. You can be sure all frequencies from 49 Hz to 20 kHz are sent to the most capable speaker, with enough power to provide plenty of volume without distortion. The cleaner and more precise the monitor output, the tighter your mixes will be. You won't believe the details you've been missing, once you hear your music through Rokit monitors.

Quality drivers for full-range performance
While many speaker manufacturers use a cheaper polypropylene material for their drivers, KRK's six-inch woofer is made with a proprietary glass-aramid composite, woven in their signature yellow color. Similar to Kevlar, this speaker delivers tight, articulate bass response with a surprising amount of feel for such a small size. The one-inch soft-dome tweeter offers natural, balanced high-frequency reproduction for clean tone and reduced ear-fatigue during long mixing sessions. Where other other bookshelf monitors tend to be thin and midrange-focused, the RP6 pushes the full frequency range, emphasizing subtle dynamic expression that might otherwise get lost in the mix. When other project studios are turning-out Toyotas, You'll be delivering Ferraris.

Improved cabinet for better sound
Every component in an RP-series monitor is designed with your music in mind. Even the cabinet helps improve your mix. Most monitor enclosures are little more than rectangular boxes with sharp corners. These squared-off edges tend to diffract, or spread out, audio waves as they pass through. This leads to an overall muddying of the mix and an unfocused stereo image. Since the essence of a good mix is the ability to balance each sonic element in its own space through the stereo field, you can see how diffraction can be a problem. The RP6 has rounded corners to reduce edge diffraction, clean up the stereo image, and enhance the "sweet spot" where you most accurately hear the mix. When you hear everything, you can polish the little details that transform a good mix into great one.

Slotted bass ports
As with any small-footprint monitor, bass ports are essential to a big, full sound. These ports let the lower frequencies travel outside the enclosure to develop naturally throughout the room. Traditional bass ports are round, which tend to trap some of these frequencies. The lows bounce off of each other inside the port, causing distortion as they leave the cabinet. KRK uses a slotted port design at the bottom of RP monitors to drastically reduce distortion and deliver rich, focused low end. Again, the more accurate your monitors, the better your mix.

Versatile connection options
Regardless of your audio environment, RP6's will fit right in. The back panel features XLR and 1/4-inch balanced TRS inputs along with unbalanced RCA connections. Hook them up to a computer production studio, standalone recording workstation, or mobile DJ rig for pristine playback. The speaker drivers are magnetically shielded to protect sensitive CRT monitors and hard drives from damage. No matter how big or small your studio, Rokit RP6's help you achieve the professional-quality results your music deserves.

The rear input panel features phone plug and XLR connectors to accommodate any application.

Sound: Very smooth... They destroy my Alesis Mk2s... A true pleasure to work with, very flat, and non fatiguing. Very full sound and comfortable to mix at low levels. You don't have to strain to hear things or bang them super loud. I'm truly amazed by these monitors! Granted I don't own "Adams" or "Makies", but these KRK Rokits far exceeded my expectations. And the price is truly affordable. They're not muddy at all! It's easy to pick out different instruments. Feature: Simple, but all I need and then some... Volume adjustment, and high frequency eq.... Balanced & unbalaned inputs... Quality: Man... the build quality is AMAZING! Top quality. Very nice, shiny, durable finish and they feel solid as a rock! They even have a pad on the bottom to reduce vibration. The cabinet is MUCH nicer than my MK2s and comparable Events out there. Originally, I was leaning towards the Event TR6, but I'm so glad I got these. They're Very Impressive. Value: As I said, they far exceed my expectations. And the going price is sooo worth it! The Wow Factor: I got 'em! And I'm now a KRK man to the bone! Overall: They're so good that I'm taking time to write this review. I've never felt that strongly before. I researched for deep before I got these. I want to give back... I'm extremely happy with them. They only thing is I got the RP6 (6 inch), which is perfect for now, my studio is in an apartment. But If I eventually have more space, in a sound proofed environment, I may check out the RP8 (8 inch). But then again the RP6 may be all I ever need. And honestly, after using Alesis mk2s for a while. These are RP6 are like a gift from GOD. I just hope they last.

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
Sound: Bought both the KRK RP5 and 6's yesterday to do a side by side. Very impressed with them both. Was amazed by how much more the 6's produced over the 5's. Concidering there pretty much the same as the 6's have just a inch bigger woffer speaker, tad more wattage, and bigger box. But the tone output of the 6's was huge over the 5's. Bass octives keys had a really noticable different as well as much richer deeper bass thump music play back, The bit lowe Frequency response 49Hz really makes a big difference. Took the 5's back for the extra hundred. The 6's where worth every cent. They just lite up the room for overall in your face tone.. As well as lowering them a tad for close monitoring or keyboard play. Neat.. Km Feature: Not alot of tweeking, which is great for me. Just plug and play.. Ease of Use: These monitors sounded great with everything I put throught them last night, CD's, TV, Ipod and specially the keyboard. Quality: Very well designed and built. Value: For the price, they are perfect. Specially over the 5's of any other brand. Manufacturer Support: Fast Email reply back. The Wow Factor: Get a nice stand for them.. They look great.
