What customers say about "Key Specs"
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.
KRK RP6 G3 Rockit Powered Studio Monitor
  • Bought 2 for bedroom music production. Fantastic monitors for the price!
  • Perfect for general listening to music production in the bedroom.
  • Loud and bassy for its size, would highly recommend it.
  • These monitors pack a serious punch for a fraction of what other big name monitoring equipment costs.
  • 73 watts each, produce just as much dB as you can possibly need.

What customers say about "Audio"
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 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.
KRK RP6 G3 Rockit Powered Studio Monitor
  • One feature that I really liked is that the speaker go to sleep mode (amplifier turns off) if no signal is detected within 20 minutes.
  • Clarity, excellent bass without any adjustments to the dials on the back, perfect for a studio or just for listening to music!
  • I like the small adjustments you can make to the high and low end.
  • I love the full connectivity options on the back, as well as the HF/LF adjustment knobs - since they make the speakers also suitable for entertainment use.
  • The fact that the acoustic port is on the front, which prevents wall reflection, is another feature i love for my limited space.
