DSP speaker with impressive treble response
With the KRK Rokit RP8 G4, recording and mixing fans get the fourth generation of the 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, 8" in size for low frequencies and 1" in size for high frequencies, this speaker has an output of 203W RMS and produces a sound pressure level of up to 111dB SPL. Bass can be reproduced down to 36Hz. The treble spectrum extends up to 40kHz, which makes this a particularly open-sounding monitor.
LCD and brickwall limiter
The KRK Rokit RP8 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 RP8 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 studios where monitoring is necessary at powerful, high volumes. If you don't have free space on the meter bridge or on your desk, you should definitely place this monitor, which weighs just over 10kg, on a stable speaker stand. For users of hardware that reacts sensitively to magnetic fields, the speaker's magnetic shielding is another 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, larger mixing rooms are the natural habitat of the KRK Rokit RP8 G4. Due to the RP8's size, particularly stable monitor stands are recommended. Isolation pads should also be used to decouple the monitor speaker from the floor and thus avoid solid-borne noise and droning. If these speakers are too big for you, or if you can do without their extra power and have a subwoofer for the deepest bass frequencies, you can also take a look at the smaller and more affordable KRK Rokit RP7 G4 (article no. 458021).
