KRK V4S4-NA overview

  • 1Description

The V4S4 from KRK represents the 4th iteration in their V series of powered reference monitors. This two-way monitor sports a 1" Kevlar tweeter and 4" woven Kevlar woofer—both of them custom designed by KRK—as well as bi-amped Class-D amplification to engender an accurate transient response. It's capable of delivering 85W total (55W from the woofer, 30W from tweeter) and delivers a frequency range of 50 Hz to 24 kHz at an SPL of up to 110 dB.

A front-ported bass-reflex enclosure design protects against boundary coupling, providing you options when it comes to room placement. Compounded with 49 user-selectable DSP-driven EQ options, a solid aluminum front-baffle, and a built-in EVA foam pad, the monitor gives you many options in preserving frequency transparency and transient response in many less-than-optimal room scenarios. You can route signal to these monitors through its Neutrik combination TRS/XLR jack, and even stay current with future updates and features via USB.

    KRK V4S4-NA reviews

    V4S4 V Series - 85W 4" Powered Reference Monitor is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not reliable - Terribe KRK customer service The sound is quite clear, kind of Rock / Metal sounding. Analytical and cold. The depth of field is definitely smaller than on the equivalent Genelec's, and lacking a bit in the lower-midrange section in my opinion. Still, if you live in the US, that could have made a good substitute for overprice Focal or Genelec speakers. However, the build quality seems very despicable : after less than one year of very moderate use, one speaker has stopped working. The amplifier within is apparently dead. I have been talking to Gibson / KRK for days, and they originally tried to get BH-Photo-Video to handle the repair. Now that they have, at last, assumed responsibility, they do not want to cover shipping, and expect to pay $100 of shipping for a faulty speaker... Their customer service is terrible. I would not recommend buying KRK products, because although failures can happen (never has on several Genelec's over ten years of use, but...), it will cost you a lost.
