KRK Rokit 8 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

Proprietary speaker combination delivers quality sound you can trust

The most instantly recognizable thing about KRK monitors are those 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 8 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 8 monitors.

High-performance custom amplifier provides essential tone control

One of the coolest upgrades KRK gave their Rokit 8 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 8s give you both high- and low-frequency controls, so you can tune your monitors to meet your environment.

Unique cabinet design ensures sonic accuracy and pristine stereo imaging

KRK's Rokit 8 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 8's radiused edges and proprietary waveguide provide a dramatically improved stereo image compared to standard square-edged cabinets. Internally, KRK designed the Rokit 8 to eliminate standing waves and other resonance issues, leaving you with pure, unadulterated sound.

KRK Rokit 8 G3 Active Nearfield Studio Monitor Features:
  • Versatile nearfield studio monitor that's great for any style of music
  • 8" 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 provides 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 8 G3s are it!

Ignore the haters

I don't write reviews for things, but after being so happy with the krk rocket 8's I had to leave my two cents. Great reference monitors for creating, mixing and listening to music. I like them more than any other monitors I have had so far, and for the price you can't go wrong yo!

Love Them!

for the price and quality not much comes close. I have them setup for my DJ rig in my home studio and the sound is amazing with a nice low end.

The KRK Rokit 8 Did Not Disappoint

The KRK Rokit 8 nearfield monitors were a big surprise when I hooked them up. The HF/LF Level adjustment capabilities made finding the correct placement that worked with the modes of my space relatively easy. I produce EDM and recommend these monitors to anyone else doing so. I also wanted to note on Sweetwater's excellent customer service. That is the main reason I keep coming back to them. They are always helpful.
