NASHVILLE, JULY 16, 2014 - KRK Systems, a Gibson Brand, is presenting its new ROKIT Generation 3 Studio Monitor Series (ROKIT G3) for the first time at Summer NAMM 2014 (Booth 825). Drawing on its experience in designing monitoring solutions for professional recording studios, KRK Systems brings high quality sound to music fans, emerging recording artists and professionals with the ROKIT G3. Available with five-inch, six-inch, or eight-inch drivers, this line of two-way active monitors features multiple innovations that elevate KRK’s legendary performance and further refine the company’s design philosophy: deliver transparent, balanced spectral response, with ultra-low distortion and superior imaging.
The ROKIT G3 features a lightweight yellow composite woofer that achieves outstanding dynamics. Many monitor manufacturers compromise the midrange frequencies to hype the bass, but the KRK ROKIT G3’s unique tuning process treats the woofer, cabinet and port as a single, integrated whole that provides extreme vocal clarity with extended bass response.
Furthermore, the ROKIT G3’s enhanced class A/B bi-amplification system has been optimized to maximize headroom without increasing distortion. Unlike monitors that distort at higher SPLs, KRK monitors are engineered to deliver clean, accurate sound at any volume level; the high frequencies are crisp, transparent and free of harshness, which complements the detailed midrange and precise—yet highly satisfying—bass. The upgraded one-inch soft-dome tweeter provides response up to a staggering 35k Hz, while KRK’s optimized, proprietary waveguide technology delivers superior stereo imaging with a wider “sweet spot.”
The company will also highlight its ROKIT 10-3, a three-way mid-field monitor that provides an unsurpassed level of power, performance and accuracy; as well as the 10s, KRK’s 10-inch powered subwoofer that is the perfect complement to the ROKIT series.
