What customers say about "Key Specs"
KRK RP4 G3 Rockit Powered Studio Monitor, Silver
  • For being the smallest monitors of this KRK model line, these 4 inch speakers pack a punch and provide ultra clarity for mixing and recording.
  • Compared to G2, the cabinet has been redesigned (the form has become more solid), and also the shape of the phase inverter has been changed.
  • I got the KRK Rokit 4 and was mindblown the first time I used them.
  • Much more detail was heard, the sound became more powerful and cleaner. The bass is deep enough for this size. Monitors are 100% worth their money.
  • Very nice play. Together with a good sound card, it is a pleasure to listen. Beautiful design. Bleed flat in full.
KRK RP5 G3 Rockit Powered Studio Monitor
  • The cabinets have lots of rounded edges and around the tweeter, also a bit of rounding around the bass port all this adds up to cleaner and more even frequencies.
  • The speakers themselves are absolutely insane, I don't think you could get better quality if you tried.
  • Did a lot of research on budget active monitors. Was choosing between the m-audio bx5 d2. Decided to go for the g3 rokit 5. very happy.
  • Very clear. Nice coverage at the bass frequencies and gives a good flat response.
  • They reproduce your music the way it was designed to be heard; Faithfully! Even though these monitors are nuetral, they really handle bass frequencies well for a 5 woofer.

What customers say about "Audio"
KRK RP4 G3 Rockit Powered Studio Monitor, Silver
  • Excellent speakers. Got it for my bedroom DJ setup. Sounds brilliant for such a setup and plenty powerful for a residential setup.
  • Nice tight bass, highs are sweet.
  • I purchased these for my flat screen tv, sound far better then other speakers I've heard at the brick and morter stores
  • The sound is clear and the stereo effect feels like they are in your head.
  • The BEST monitor speakers ever, can hear every small sound, perfect for studios.
KRK RP5 G3 Rockit Powered Studio Monitor
  • For a small size they can fill most small to medium rooms and unlike many speakers the frequency remains the same regardless of volume
  • I have not taken actual measurements, but my hears are good at detecting any type of noise, and so far I could not hear any noise at all
  • These are easy to listen to for hours and you do need to fine tune the Hi and Lo EQ knobs to get the best near flat response
  • These are studio monitors, however I have them at home connected to my decks. The sound quality is brilliant.
  • These speakers are amazing, really great flat sound, super for mixing and mastering.

What customers say about "Features"
KRK RP4 G3 Rockit Powered Studio Monitor, Silver
  • I love the control knobs in the back of the speaker so I can adjust without going into my computer.
  • My first set of bi-amp powered monitors. Stepped up from Mackie CR3s. The clarity and punch are incredible.
  • I paired them to a KRK 8S Subwoofer, and I’m super happy with the result!
  • This is better than listening or producing music with headphones.
KRK RP5 G3 Rockit Powered Studio Monitor
  • They look amazing between the yellow bass cones and the badge that illuminates when on
  • They have XLR, 6.3mm Jack, and RCA inputs and have tried balanced and unbalanced which makes no or very little difference in the sound.
  • These really are quality, well built and heavy but sound great, clear punchy basslines and they look amazing too.
  • The sound quality is very good, the design match every single set up and it is worth the money as I don't think I am going to change them for couple of years now.
  • Worth the money. Bags of bass. Very nice clarity. Like the colours.
