DSP speaker with impressive treble response
With the KRK Rokit RP5 G4, recording and mixing fans get the fourth generation of this active two-way monitor speaker, impressing users with its integrated DSP features such as an equaliser, brickwall limiter, and room correction. These are conveniently controllable via a multifunction jog wheel and an illuminated LC display as well as a smartphone app. With its glass-aramid speakers, 5" in size for low frequencies and 1" in size for high frequencies, this speaker has an output of 55W RMS and produces a sound pressure level of up to 104dB SPL. Bass can be reproduced down to 43Hz. The treble spectrum extends up to 40kHz, which makes this a particularly open-sounding monitor.
LCD and brickwall limiter
The KRK Rokit RP5 G4's DSP-controlled equaliser is designed as a graphic EQ and is controlled by 25 different presets. This helps to optimally adapt the sound of the loudspeaker to its acoustic environment, and everything is conveniently displayed via an easy-to-read LC screen located on the back of the speaker. The KRK Audio Tools app offers additional tools for room correction and speaker positioning via iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. A built-in brickwall limiter protects the speaker when it is pushed to its limits and provides a balanced sound. Thanks to the balanced combo socket, the speaker can accommodate both XLR and jack connectors.
Flexibly adjustable entry-level monitor
The active KRK Rokit RP5 G4 is a good budget choice for beginners who want to get to know their monitoring environment with the help of a flexibly adjustable monitor speaker instead of trying out many different models with a fixed sound. It is suitable for home and project studios in which space is at a premium and very high volumes are unnecessary. If you don't have free space on the meter bridge or on your desk, you can place this monitor, which weighs just over 4.85kg, on a conventional speaker stand. For users of hardware that reacts sensitively to magnetic fields, the speaker's magnetic shielding is also a good argument in its favour.
The KRK Systems brand, today a subsidiary of US guitar manufacturer Gibson, has existed since 1986, and has acquired as many years of experience in the construction and design of studio monitors. Today, KRK's product range has extended to include subwoofers and headphones, in addition to their near- and midfield monitors. KRK adepts include such illustrious names as Mark "Spike" Stent (Ed Sheeran’s sound engineer), Grammy winner Ed Cherney, rock producer Jacquire King, rock and metal producer Ulrich Wild as well as trance DJ Armin van Buuren.
Also available as a bundle
As a nearfield monitor speaker, small mixing rooms are the KRK Rokit RP5 G4's natural habitat. The speaker can be decoupled from its stand using a foam ISO pad, and these are also available in a bundle with a pair of KRK Rokit RP5 G4 speakers (article no. 491028). Monitor stands are also available as a ready-made set with a pair of these speakers (article no. 491026). If, on the other hand, you can do without DSP features and if less power and a more limited frequency range are sufficient, you can also take a look at the more affordable KRK RP5 Rokit G3 Classic (article no. 322608).
