Implicitly Trust Your Studio Monitors

The KRK VXT8 delivers tight, extended bass and serious volume capabilities. The flagship of KRK's high-performance VXT active studio monitor series, the VXT8 is fitted with a proprietary-design 8" woven-Kevlar woofer and bi-amplified with an authoritative 180 watts. These beasts are at home as nearfields - or cranked to comfortably fill small or mid sized control rooms. Either way, you receive the benefit of KRK's two-plus decades of experience in designing powered studio monitors. A generous measure of technical innovation has gone into this design; the result is an indispensable studio tool trusted by audio professionals worldwide.

Lucid detail, rock-solid stereo focus, and a generous sweet spot are afforded by a fast-transient silk-dome tweeter and sophisticated waveguide geometry. The VXT8's prodigious bass response is due in part to an enclosure crafted of high-density/low resonance ABS. This results in complex shapes and non-parallel walls inside the cabinet. The cabinet design also incorporates a baffle contour that virtually eliminates diffraction distortion. A front-firing bass port (radiused to reduce port turbulence) eliminates boundary coupling, delivering clean, articulate low-end performance, even at high SPLs. If you need an extended-bass monitoring system with even more dynamic range, the VXT8s mate seamlessly with the KRK10S subwoofer.

The KRK VXT8 is a serious monitor, and pro touches abound. Adjustment of high- and low-frequency response is provided to allow for precise compensation for placement and room acoustics. A limiter may be called into play to tame especially rough-edged source material. Integrated OmniMount support offers secure mounting options. Tamper-resistant switch covers, multiple-protection circuitry, and a ground lift round out the package. The essence of a good studio monitor is that your mixes "translate" to the world outside the studio, and here, the legion of professionals who rely on KRK monitors speaks for itself. If you're in the market for new studio monitors (or even if you're not), you owe it to yourself to check out the KRK VXT8.

Boom.

Amazing sound, clarity, and definition....so uncolored it's unbelievable! I set up my presets on my Helix through these and, when later I run through FOH, it's spot on to what I set up in-studio, so..... Boom. The guys at Sweetwater are one of the few companies who truly understand personal customer service and put it into practice every time I purchase from them!

great monitors, great service

I love these monitors. I've had them 3 years now, and they have consistantly yeilded true mixes in 3 different control rooms, as long as I have had the eq on the back set to match the room they're in. And after lots of use, when I needed a tweeter, Sweetwater had one when no one else did! Great service, as always, from Sweetwater.

Great Speakers

I went from a pair of Paradigm 5se MK II to KRK VXT 8's. The sound is very clear, the high's are crisp and the lows are strong. You can play these at low levels and the power is always there. My mix's got a lot better since i got these speakers.
