KRK ROKIT 8 G3
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Excellent choice for paring with KRK Sub. Sounds great.
Advanced engineering and solid construction give the ROKIT 8 G3 balanced, low-distortion sound to help accurately monitor your mix.
The ROKIT 8 G3 powered monitor might not cost a mint, but this compact powerhouse brings serious performance to your recording studio and impressive sonic accuracy to your mix. That's because the experts at KRK, one of the world's most respected makers of reference-quality studio monitors, know how to build 'em right. The ROKIT 8's 1" soft dome tweeter and lightweight 8" composite woofer provide smooth, extended highs, accurate mids for clear vocals, and deep, powerful bass.
This monitor's bi-amped design features separate amplifiers for the tweeter and woofer to deliver plenty of output with exceptionally low distortion. A front-firing port extends low-frequency response while reducing boundary coupling, an effect that can cause overemphasis of certain bass frequencies when the monitor is placed near a wall or corner. The beveled, low-resonance enclosure and proprietary tweeter waveguide minimize cabinet diffraction to ensure precise, detailed imaging in your listening position. And a factory installed foam pad provides vibration isolation between the speaker and your desktop or console.
KRK knows you don't always have control over the space you're working in, so they gave each ROKIT monitor fine-tuning capabilities to help you match its sound to your environment. The high-frequency level adjustment switch allows you to tailor the tweeter's output to suit your sonic preference. The low-frequency control lets you boost or cut bass to compensate for room acoustics, room size, and monitor position to maintain proper frequency response.
To keep you connected to the widest possible range of studio gear, each ROKIT monitor features an unbalanced RCA connector, as well as balanced 1/4" TRS and XLR connectors, so you're ready for anything.

Excellent choice for paring with KRK Sub. Sounds great.
First of all I want to Thank Ziggy at Crutchfield for introducing these monitors, now lets talk about Rokit 8, I initially got A5+ with S8 the combo was nice but not satisfactory for me, so i decided to give Rokit 8 a try and boy are they sweet I mean no words can explain how clean they are, you don't need a sub with them they play very true they will shake you as I know most of the people look for low end frequency but the mids and highs are very clean and very less distorted compare to A5+ luckily I have NAD 1050 which have XLR output, if you want to spend your money on nice sounding monitors buy ROKIT 8 you will be a very happy person.
Pros: Nice clean sound, very true speakers.
Cons: Power cord too short I had to buy Pangea 2 meter for it.

Powered Near Field Studio Monitor: KRK's Rokit 8-G3 powered studio monitor offers professional performance and accuracy for recording, mixing, mastering and playback.
2-Way Speaker Design: The Rokit 8-G3 monitor features a two-way speaker design for vocal clarity and extended bass response.
Bi-Amplification: The proprietary bi-amped, class A/B amplifier offers large headroom and low distortion with SPL up to 109dB. The 100 watt amplifier provides 25 watts to the tweeter and 75 watts to the woofer.
Curved Bass Reflex Cabinet: The Rokit 8-G3 has a radically curved front surface which prevents the problems caused by traditional rectangular speakers. Rectangular speakers suffer from diffraction as sound waves leaving the edge of the cabinet are reflected back into the listening field causing phase distortion. The Rokit 8-G3 enclosure virtually eliminates diffraction and provides a wider, more natural sounding sweet spot. The Rokit 8-G3 also features a front-firing slotted port which is shaped to reduce port turbulence. This combination ensures clean and accurate bass performance, even at high SPLs, without coupling issues. The cabinet is made of reinforced MDF to prevent unwanted distortion cause by vibration.
Controls: The Rokit 8-G3 powered studio monitor speaker features volume and low/high frequency control.
Balanced & Unbalanced Inputs: The Rokit 8-G3 is fitted with dedicated balanced XLR and 1/4" Line inputs (10kΩ), as well as unbalanced RCA inputs (10kΩ).
Protection Circuitry: The Rokit 8-G3 features Thermal, Overload, and Clip protection circuitry to prevent damage.
Placement: The left and right studio monitors should be approximately 3-5' apart and directed at a 60-degree angle towards the listener's location. Measure the distance between the left and right studio monitors to make sure the listening position is equal distance to both sides. This will form an equilateral triangle. Its important that both left and right studio monitors are level matched. The speaker should be placed at ear level.
Note: Factory installed foam pad provides isolation between the speaker and surface.
