Powered Near Field Studio Monitor: KRK's Rokit 5-G3 powered
studio monitor offers professional performance and accuracy for recording,
mixing, mastering and playback.
2-Way Speaker Design: The Rokit 5-G3 monitor features a
two-way speaker design for vocal clarity and extended bass response.
- 1" Neodymium Soft-Dome Tweeter: The 1" Neodymium
tweeter utilizes a silk soft-dome for detailed high frequency reproduction.
The tweeter also employs Ferro fluid damping/cooling to control distortion
and heat dissipation. The tweeter is recessed into a waveguide and coupled
to the curved front baffle to optimize on and off-axis linearity resulting
in excellent imaging and a wider sweet spot.
- Glass Aramid Composite Woofer: The Rokit 5-G3 features
one 5" glass aramid composite midrange/midbass driver. Glass Aramid
Composite creates very rigid woofer cone for excellent transient response
and accurate vocal reproduction.
Bi-Amplification: The proprietary bi-amped, class A/B amplifier
offers large headroom and low distortion with SPL up to 106dB. The 50 watt
amplifier provides 20 watts to the tweeter and 30 watts to the woofer.
Curved Bass Reflex Cabinet: The Rokit 5-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 5-G3 enclosure virtually eliminates
diffraction and provides a wider, more natural sounding sweet spot. The Rokit
5-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 5-G3 powered studio monitor speaker
features volume and low/high frequency control.
- Volume: The input sensitivity is adjusted with the
rear-panel mounted Volume control. Adjustment range is from -30dB to +6dB.
Factory preset gain is +6dB.
- Low & High Frequency: The Rokit 5-G3 has both Low (-2
to +2dB) and High (-2 to +1dB) Frequency level controls. This feature
provides specific adjustment of both ends of the frequency spectrum output
most commonly affected by room acoustics. These controls ensure the most
accurate mix for your particular room's acoustics.
Balanced & Unbalanced Inputs: The Rokit 5-G3 is fitted with
dedicated balanced XLR and 1/4" Line inputs (10kΩ),
as well as unbalanced RCA inputs (10kΩ).
Protection Circuitry: The Rokit 5-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
