KRK RP8G2 Rokit 8 G2 Active Monitor

The RP8G2 Rokit G2s are designed to do what true reference monitors should do: faithfully reproduce only what's actually there in the music. This is exactly the sort of thing that KRK specializes in, and it's one of the reasons they created the KRK RP8G2 Rokit G2 studio monitors.

A Cleaner, More Accurate Sound

Retaining some of the features that made the original Rokit series stand out (front-firing bass port, soft-domed tweeter, glass aramid composite yellow cone), the RP8G2 adds a refined voicing as well as a curved baffle to eliminate diffraction and provide a clearer sound, free from coloration. Basically, KRK wants producers to hear the cleanest, purest tone possible and they do this a few different ways.

Curved Surfaces Look Good, Sound Better
Using uniquely engineered curved surfaces, the Rokit RP8G2 monitors virtually eliminate the diffraction that traditionally shaped speakers suffer from. As sounds leave the edge of a rectangular speaker, tones at the edge of its cabinet are reflected back into the original sound field at different time intervals, resulting in a boxy, flat sound. By curving the cabinet, KRK avoids this "phase distortion" for a better sound across a wider area.

A Superior Tweeter Wave Guide
A properly engineered high frequency wave guide is an integral part of a good, clean tone and something that KRK takes very seriously. To this end, they've designed a superior tweeter wave guide for the RP8G2s. Unlike conventional speaker designs, the G2s provide a high frequency pattern control that directs sound outwards and away from the cabinets instead of along its pane. This way, they can avoid those pesky phase problems and avoid the increased diffraction that plague traditional speakers cabinets.

Front-Firing Ports
Front-firing ports are a key to creating clean and accurate bass response, even at high SPL's. While speakers with rear-firing ports tend to create bass coupling with walls or corners, the KRK RP8G2s reduce port turbulence and can be placed anywhere without unfairly coloring your mix.

Connections For Any Studio Environment

KRK wanted to ensure that there monitors were as flexible as possible. The Rokit RP8G2's feature RCA, 1/4" (balanced/unbalanced) and XLR connections to fit with any studio set up. They also included a volume control and high frequency control, to allow you to tune output of the speaker to suit your particular mixing environment.

If you are looking for a monitor to mix to,the KRK's have a very clear sound.They are the type of monitor that will knock your socks off.
What more can i say, the high frequency knob is very helpful during mixing for a poorly treated room.The front firing ports O M G big plus as well as the curves to prevent distortion.ALL features are covered with these bad boys."what you hear, is what your going to get".Love them to Death! Great reference monitor
Ease of Use
Ease of use: The hook up was very simple like 1+1 and start mixing.
The KRK's do not have any blemishes and are VERY clean looking. They fit perfect on the SM6000 stands if you got the bundle.They are built to last through thick and thin trust me!
For the value i could not pass it by i had to get them.
