No Longer Available
Product Highlights
  • 6" Composite Woofer
  • 1" Soft Dome Tweeter
  • 5-Way Binding Post Inputs
  • Curved Front Baffle
  • Front-Firing Bass Port
  • High Frequency Waveguide
  • Precision Crossover

The R6 from KRK is a 2-way passive nearfield monitor ideal for use in project or small professional studios. The monitor features a 6" glass aramid composite cone woofer that maximizes performance while minimizing distortion. The 1" neodymium soft dome tweeter provides a more natural sound than metal-domed tweeters, providing more natural mixes with less ear fatigue.

The wood cabinet features a front-firing bass port and a radically curved front baffle for minimal diffraction and a wide sweet spot. The recessed high frequency waveguide focuses the sound away from the cabinet and provides optimal pattern control. The rear of the cabinet features gold-plated 5-way binding post inputs for connection to a wide variety of sound systems. A precision 2-way crossover provides an accurate frequency transition between the woofer and tweeter, allowing each driver to perform to maximum potential. The monitor is shielded for safe use near video monitors and computers.

      Comments about KRK R6 6" Two-Way Passive Nearfield Monitor:

      Great sound and volume considering I have these set up in a 2.0 system. No need for a separate sub woofer with these monitors. They get louder than I would ever need them for a personal studio monitor without any distortion.

        Comments about KRK R6 6" Two-Way Passive Nearfield Monitor:

        These aren't audiophile level speakers, but they're a good passive version of the active RK5 speakers I use in my home studio. I grew tired of small bookshelf speakers in this price range not delivering, so I figured I'd give these a try in hope that they could deliver the same solid sound. I'm very happy; they've been very good to me in the few weeks I've owned them. Lows come through and fill the room, mids are present but not overpowering, and highs stay in place without muddiness. A good choice for those who know and like the RK series, and a good choice if your home stereo needs to do double duty as a stereo and home studio reference monitor.
