KRK Rokit 5 G3 Active Nearfield Studio Monitor at a Glance:
  • Proprietary speaker combination delivers quality sound you can trust
  • High-performance custom amplifier provides essential tone control
  • Unique cabinet design ensures sonic accuracy and pristine stereo imaging
Proprietary speaker combination delivers quality sound you can trust

The most instantly recognizable thing about KRK monitors is the telltale yellow speakers. But there's far more to those speaker cones than their color. A combination of Kevlar and aramid fibers make the Rokit 5 G3 an incredible performer, delivering clear mids and tight bass. Add to that a soft-dome tweeter, and you'll get pristine highs extending all the way to 30kHz from your KRK Rokit 5 monitors.

High-performance custom amplifier provides essential tone control

One of the coolest upgrades KRK gave their Rokit 5 G3 studio monitors was a redesigned amplifier and active electronics system. For starters, this Class A/B amplifier delivers massive headroom and low distortion, keeping your audio clean and dropping your noise floor. In addition to that, Rokit 5s give you both high- and low-frequency controls, so you can tune your monitors to your room.

Unique cabinet design ensures sonic accuracy and pristine stereo imaging

KRK's Rokit 5 G3, like the rest of the third-generation Rokit studio monitors, gains a lot from its unique speaker cabinet design. On the outside, the Rokit 5's radiused edges and proprietary waveguide provide a dramatically improved stereo image compared to standard square-edged cabinets. Internally, KRK designed the Rokit 5 to eliminate standing waves and other resonance issues, leaving you with pure, unadulterated sound.

KRK Rokit 5 G3 Active Nearfield Studio Monitor Features:
  • Versatile nearfield studio monitor that's great for any style of music
  • 5" Kevlar/aramid composite woofer delivers clear mids and tight bass response
  • Soft-dome tweeter with proprietary waveguide provides smooth and lucid highs up to 30kHz
  • Active 2-way electronics provide high-headroom/low-noise amplification
  • High- and low-frequency controls let you contour your sound to your environment
  • Front-slotted bass port and resonant-free cabinet increase sonic clarity
  • Radiused edges and contoured front baffle provide clear sound and accurate stereo imaging
  • System-optimized limiter prevents unexpected peaks from damaging speakers
If you're looking for dependable sound from affordable studio monitors, KRK Rokit 5 G3s are it!

KRK Rokit G3 5" Powered Studio Monitor

Awesome litttle monitors! Nice lows and crisp highs. Even sounds good against the wall on a shelf (I know that's taboo but necessity being the mother of invention). My daughter, the Soprano, is going to love these!

Absolutely amazing!

I was amazed after listening to these monitors! I would recommend getting monitor isolation pads such as the ones by Auralex. They really help reduce the bass buildup that occur when the monitors are placed directly on your table/desk. And if you still have some extra bass frequencies, just turn the bass frequency knob down one or two. I have my monitors in my bedroom studio, and they still shook the house at the -6db setting! The best part is how it doesn't distort the sound when the volume increases like others do! I was amazed at the clarity with these monitors. So if you are recording in a small to medium room, these monitors should still get the job done!

Incredibly Balanced

Purchased a pair for my studio and was very, very pleased with the KRK Rokit 5 Gen 3 monitors. The adjustability of the High and Low frequencies allows you to effectively tune these monitors to your room as well as your own hearing ability. The bass on these monitors is not overbearing (though you could tune them that way), but incredibly balanced; making for a near perfect monitor. The Lows are very smooth and accurate, and the midrange and highs are very nicely reproduced. The response of these monitors is very, very flat, and when adjusted properly add no unwanted coloration of your sound, which is exactly what you want in your studio. I was skeptical because of their small size, but I think that's part of what makes them so well balanced. No overbearing, boomy, or unnatural bass. It is as it should be... I very highly recommend these KRK's over much larger cabinets. Works exceptionally well for "older, more seasoned" ears.

Excellent near field speakers

I put these on "Mo Pads" on stands. The sound out of these speakers is accurate for making your mix down. Extremely clean sound. Very impressed, and the generation 3 has better sound for your room type.

Sweetwater Advice

CJ Brown

After moving my studio several times, I became more aware of how important it is to make my mixes translate across different listening environments. The neutral frequency response I get from my KRK Rokit 5 studio monitors lets me mix in any room, no matter what kind of music I work on. Even in the most cramped studio setups, when I've had to place my monitors close to a wall or corner, the back-panel controls let me balance out the low-end.
