The black Rokit 5 G3 from KRK is a 50W two-way active studio monitor for your home or professional studio. Equipped with a bi-amped, class A/B amplifier that powers a 5" woofer and a 1" tweeter, the Rokit 5 G3 is designed to offer maximum headroom with minimal distortion. The soft-dome tweeter, which provides extended response up to 35 kHz, is designed with a proprietary waveguide that is optimized for improved imaging. The aramid glass composite woofer has been engineered to deliver a clear response in the midrange along with a tight low end.

The speaker is housed in a low resonance enclosure that includes a factory installed foam pad at the bottom to provide improved isolation from the surface it's set upon. Under the woofer there is a front firing port that provides an extended low frequency response while reducing boundary coupling at the same time. Additionally, the enclosure features radiused edges that reduce distortion caused by diffraction.

The Rokit 5 G3 also provides flexible connectivity, allowing for input via XLR, TRS or RCA connection. It also provides both low and high frequency adjustments so you can tailor the speaker's response curve to your personal taste.

            I bought a pair of these after reading some great reviews (specifically ones by people in home studios). I had to upgrade after my old Samson Rubicons bit the dust in a power surge. They still worked, but one operated at half power. Plus, their bass response was always very wimpy. The Rokits, however, have GREAT bass response, and I don't even have the bass eq knob turned all the way up. I would definitely recommend these to home studio owners. Not just for the great price, but for the EQ knobs on the back. Home studios are notorious for having bad room acoustics, so these will definitely help level out the sound.

                  I use these monitors for HOURS ... DAILY! They are really gr8! You're able to hear the highs, mids & lows superbly. Also, hearing all the nuances in between not ordinarily heard comes through beautifully and crisply. The price 4 the value is outstanding.

                  A number of us were using M-Audio powered monitors on our desks at work, but they had an amazing failure rate. Our audio engineers recommended these as a replacement, they are a serious improvement, and not overly pricy.

                        I have a very humble home recording setup and needed to upgrade to better studio monitors than what I had. Through a reccomendation from a drummer friend, I purchased a pair of Rokit 5G3's. After setting these babies up, I was blown away! They are very nuetral, clean yet solid. They reproduce your music the way it was designed to be heard; Faithfully! Even though these monitors are nuetral, they really handle bass frequencies well for a 5" woofer. What's great about these monitors is they don't take up a lot of real estate. They are solidly manufactured and each monitor has the same power configuration and controls. This way you can balance the output to match each other and to room acuostics. Lastly, they produce a high SPL; so you have volume to spare. What's not so great about these babies is that because of their reasonable price some folks might not take the monitors seriously. And that would be a big mistake!
