Serious Studio Monitors

The KRK Expose E8B Active Studio Monitor pulls no punches. Two discrete Class A / AB power amplifiers with symmetrical heat sinks are in the engine room of an enclosure with thick, non-parallel internal walls that eliminate standing waves. With a newly developed beryllium / aluminum inverted dome tweeter that gives you extended highs into the doggie frequencies, and its dual-layer 8" Kevlar woofer pumping out tight, extended bass that will have you looking around for the subwoofer, what you hear is what you get. If you're in the market for serious monitoring, you should give serious consideration to the KRK Expose E8B.

  • Mixes that translate
  • Impeccable accuracy and astonishing imaging
  • Nice curves!
Mixes that translate

The KRK Expose E8B Active Studio Monitors reveal everything: your mix is basically standing there naked, warts and all. Before you recoil in horror at this thought, consider the flipside: if your music sounds great on your E8Bs - it really does sound great, and this goodness will translate outside your studio. Like any good professional studio monitor, the E8B forces you to "work for" your mix. When your music is sounding its best, high-volume studio playbacks will be sonic nirvana. If not, then you've some more work to do.

Impeccable accuracy and astonishing imaging

The KRK Expose E8B Active Studio Monitors give you impeccable accuracy and astonishing imaging, so you can record and mix with confidence, knowing that, for instance, the EQ you slather on the kick drum is not some horrible mistake that will come back to haunt you. "Great-sounding" monitors that keep you guessing are doing you no favors. It's your music you want to sound great - not your monitors. What you need from them is the truth. Nothing more, nothing less. Truth is what the KRK Expose E8B delivers.

Nice curves!

We're referring, of course, to the KRK Expose E8B's cabinet. Basic acoustical theory tells us that parallel surfaces are ideal for the propagation of standing waves (which we know are bad). Why, then, do most speakers have a boxy form factor? KRK angles the E8B's interior walls to eliminate standing waves, and even designs the exterior with attractive curves that provide natural diffraction and a larger sweet spot. Sophisticated cabinet design is part of what makes the KRK Expose E8B a serious studio tool.

KRK Expose E8B Active Studio Monitor Features:
  • Uncompromised high-grade dual amplification system serves up incredible detail
  • Aluminum / Beryllium inverted dome tweeter delivers smooth, ultra-quick transient response
  • Extended HF frequencies ideal for use with high sample rate computer audio systems
  • Increased cabinet radius edges improve natural diffraction and provide a larger sweet spot
  • Attractive enclosure looks great in any recording environment
Get serious with your monitoring, with the KRK Expose E8B!
