    General Features 

    All models have a 2-Way configuration and soft dome tweeter to balance high frequencies and an Aramid Glass Composite woofer to adjust low frequencies. The front firing slot port prevents any absorption into walls and corners by sending the sound to the front instead of the back, like many other monitors. This will prevent you from ‘being tricked’ by a wrongly heavy bassline sound that would be provoked by this absorption.  All models have an A-B amplifier and HF Level adjust levels from -2dB to +1dB.

    • Provides excellent clarity and extended response to 35Khz
    • No boosted high frequencies
    • Balances at any volume giving crisp and clean high frequencies
    • Well balanced sound

    Light-weight composed woofer 

    • clear midrange and tight bass
    • not compromising mid-range frequencies to over accentuate bass

    • allows positioning in the room with reduces boundary coupling
    • reduces fraction distortion

    Conclusion

    Which model of Krk Rokit studio monitors you will choose will depend on their differences .When one of the major differences  is  their size and weight, they all combine physical strength and stiffness to deliver high-quality sound . theRokit 5 , though, will deliver a lower bass response than the Rokit8 and that might be the reason to go to Rokit 8 instead of Rokit5.

    I choose the Rokit 8 because the size of my room was ideal and that I personally lacked some bass response from the Rokit 5. The difference in price between Rokit6 and Rokit 8 wasn’t that big, so I thought for that difference it was better to go for the best model right away.

    All tree models are highly efficient and don’t need external amplifiers they are extremely robust and will last a lifetime.

    I don’t hesitate  one second  to recommend Rokit G3 studio monitors to everybody who wants the best conditions to produce music in a home based studio.

    I hope my KRK Rokit G3 Studio Monitors review helped you know why you should choose KRK Rokit G3 monitors and which one to go for!
