The ROKIT G3s feature 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.
Originally launched in late summer 2013, KRK Systems presented its Rokit Generation 3 studio monitor series at the 2014 Winter NAMM
show in Anaheim. Available with five-inch, six-inch, or eight-inch drivers, this new line of two-way active monitors features several innovations designed to deliver transparent, balanced spectral response, with ultra-low distortion and superior imaging.
Furthermore, the enhanced class A/B analog, bi-amplification system has also been optimised 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 optimised, proprietary waveguide technology delivers superior stereo imaging with a wider “sweet spot.”
“The Rokit G3 line not only meets the highest sonic standards, but delivers the versatility needed by all users to take their mixes to the next level—regardless of musical style,” says Gus Jursch, Director of Operations for Gibson Pro Audio. “The extended, accurate high- and low-frequency response delivers mixes that translate superbly over a wide variety of playback systems, while new high- and low-frequency amplifier adjustments let users tailor these monitors to taste, or compensate for room acoustics. What’s more, the new line maintains the ROKIT reputation as being ideal for anyone, from those starting out in desktop recording all the way to pro-level mixing and mastering engineers.”
