The KRK RP8G2 Rokit G2 Powered Studio Monitor gives you amazing performance and accuracy for the home or project studio.
All of the great stuff that Rokit’s have been known for including front-firing bass port, soft-domed tweeter, glass aramid composite yellow cone are still there, but the G2 Rokit’s feature refined voicing and a new curved baffle that looks great, reduces diffraction and provides even better monitoring accuracy.

* Radically curved front plate design virtually eliminates diffraction distortion
* Waveguide design provides amazing detail and imaging
* Front-firing port provides low freq extension without boundary coupling
* New speaker voicing for even more accurate frequency response
* 1-inch Neodymium soft dome tweeter
* Glass Aramid Composite Cone Woofer

Even More Accurate Than Before
KRK engineers and listening panel took the Generation 2 Rokits’ speaker voicing to even more accurate levels. What you hear is what you are intended to hear, coloration is not part of the spec. This performance is brought to you by drivers that are custom-designed by KRK's world-class studio monitor engineering team, for clear, low-distortion performance.

The Recessed tweeters may look the same, but they don't perform the same. KRK has designed a superior tweeter wave guide for the Rokit that provides optimal high frequency pattern control and focuses the sound outward, away from the cabinet. More conventional designs direct sound along the plane of the cabinet where waveform interaction can cause phase problems and increased diffraction. KRK knows a properly engineered high frequency wave guide is a critical component to great sound, and one key to their award winning performance.

Whether you're just starting out in desktop recording, or you've already laid down a few thousand tracks, you've probably heard about KRK Rokit Powered Studio Monitors. After all, for years the Rokit has been a popular choice for accurate monitoring in home and project studios large and small. Rokit enthusiasts include guitar and bass players, electronic musicians and re-mixers, beginning artists and industry professionals.

But now is a great time to check out the all-new, Rokit Generation 2 Powered Studio Monitors. Generation 2 Rokits set a new standard with even better performance and accuracy, raising the bar once again. So "getting ahead of the curve" means even more than ever.

* New Radically Curved Front Baffle Design
* High Frequency Waveguide
* High Frequency Level control
* Input Gain Control

* New KRK Proprietary Woofers and Tweeters

New KRK Proprietary Woofers And TweetersSpeakers, crossovers and amplifiers are tuned for maximum performance: Improved top end frequency response, increased articulation, better imaging, faster attack times, less distortion. The 1" Neodymium Soft Dome tweeter is more natural and less harsh than metal-domed tweeters, resulting in reduced ear fatigue and more natural mixes. The Glass Aramid Composite Cone Woofer maximizes excursion performance without compromising reliability and minimizes distortion. We’ve even improved the speaker voicing of new Rokit (no simple feat considering how great Rokit’s have always been in this regard). Simply put, RokitG2 is the most accurate monitor in its price range.

New Radically Curved Front Baffle DesignOur new Rokits look different, so they can sound better, and in a wider "sweet spot". Traditional rectangular speakers with square or slightly rounded edges suffer from diffraction as sounds leaving the edge of the cabinet are reflected back into the original sound field, and at different time intervals. This phase distortion creates a "narrow" or boxy" sound. The Rokit Generation 2 Series eliminates this issue with radically engineered curved surfaces, so diffraction is virtually eliminated. Simply put, you'll get better sound in a wider area.

Recessed High Frequency WaveguideKRK has designed a superior tweeter waveguide that provides optimal high frequency pattern control and focuses the sound outward, away from the cabinet. More conventional designs direct sound along the plane of the cabinet where waveform interaction can cause phase problems and increased diffraction. KRK knows a properly engineered high frequency waveguide is a critical component to great sound, and one key to our award winning performance.

Bi-Amplified Design with Active CrossoverPower Up! A great sounding monitor doesn’t stop with a great cabinet and custom drivers. Our true bi-amplified amplifier system provides discrete low-distortion power for each driver. While our active crossover systems provide smooth and accurate frequency response, and again, accurate diffraction control.

Newly Designed Rigid Wood CabinetWhile the radically designed curved front panel with flush and radius surfaces provide excellent imaging characteristics and a much wider sweet spot, the new Rokit’s rigid wood cabinet construction improves overall structural integrity, extended low frequency response and increased damping characteristics.

Multiple Input OptionsYou’ve Got Connections, At KRK our focus is your mix. But it doesn't stop at creating accurate monitors. We live this stuff and appreciate the need for monitors that not only sound great but work easily into your particular set up. That's why you'll find plenty of input options with your Rokit sure to accommodate any studio environment. So if it's RCA, Quarter-Inch (balanced/unbalanced) or XLR inputs you require, Rokit has got you covered.

High Frequency Level ControlWhile your Rokit Generation 2 leaves the factory voiced to our demanding specs, KRK also knows that no two rooms "sound" the same. As such, each comes equipped with a High Frequency Level Control. This feature provides specific adjustment of high frequency output most commonly affected by room acoustics. It's just one extra level of control that KRK gives you to ensure the most accurate mix for your particular room's acoustics.

Front-Firing PortTake a look at competitive monitors and you'll find ports on the back of the cabinet. These rear-firing ports tend create bass coupling with walls and corners amplifying low frequency information which will color your mix. Just like it’s big brothers (VXT and Expose) the G2 Rokits include front-firing ports, which are just the right shape and taper to reduce port turbulence. You'll appreciate the clean and accurate bass performance, this approach delivers, even at high SPL’s.

Input Gain ControlWhy compromise gain structure to achieve a comfortable listening level? As musicians and recording people ourselves, we know that your monitor has to play nice with other components in your system, which is why we gave RokitG2 an ultra-compatible Input Volume Control that provides an adjustable gain range from +6dB to -30dB. Just another way RokitG2 lets you focus on your mix, and not on compatibility concerns.

Our Happy Customers

"So many new options on the XK3c, so little time. Shopping at MusiciansBuy has truly restored my faith in the retail industry. I can't thank Mark and Bob and all of the other folks at MB enough for handling my purchase. A Hammond Organ was shipped with a dead pre-set key.(Kudos to Hammond also for jumping right on my inquiry and working with MB. It was the first time any of us had heard of this type of problem with a Hammond product). MB immediately shipped a replacement unit with free mailback tags. Obviously the replacement was also brand new and works flawlessly. I'm late in giving this testimonial because I can't get enough time with the new keyboard. Everyone should shop with MB. The best pricing, service and product of any of the online stores. PERIOD. Call these guys for a price, you won't be sorry. - BH"
