    KRK Proprietary Woofers And Tweeters
    The KRK RP8's speakers, crossovers and amplifiers are tuned for maximum performance. KRK RP8 monitors feature improved top end frequency response, increased articulation, better imaging, faster attack times and less distortion. The 1 inch Neodymium Soft Dome tweeter is more natural and less harsh than metal-domed tweeters, resulting in reduced ear fatigue and more natural mixes. The Glass Aramid Composite Cone Woofer maximises excursion performance without compromising reliability and minimises distortion. KRK have even improved the speaker voicing of the KRK RP8 (no simple feat considering how great Rokit's have always been in this regard). Simply put, the KRK RP8 G2 is the most accurate monitor in its price range.

    Radically Curved Front Baffle Design
    KRK's new Rokits look different, so they can sound better, and in a wider 'sweet spot'. Traditional rectangular speakers (with square or slightly rounded edges) suffer from diffraction as sounds leaving the edge of the cabinet are reflected back into the original sound field, and at different time intervals. This phase distortion creates a 'narrow' or boxy' sound. The KRK RP8 G2 eliminates this issue with radically engineered curved surfaces, so diffraction is virtually eliminated. Simply put, you'll get better sound in a wider area.

    Recessed High Frequency Waveguide
    KRK have designed a superior tweeter waveguide that provides optimal high frequency pattern control and focuses the sound outward, away from the cabinet. More conventional designs direct sound along the plane of the cabinet where waveform interaction can cause phase problems and increased diffraction. KRK knows that a properly engineered high frequency waveguide is a critical component to great sound, and it is one key to their award winning performance.

    Bi-Amplified Design with Active Crossover
    Power Up! A great sounding monitor doesn't stop with a great cabinet and custom drivers. KRK's true bi-amplified amplifier system provides discrete low-distortion power for each driver. KRK's active crossover systems provide a smooth and accurate frequency response, and again, accurate diffraction control.

    Rigid Wood Cabinet
    While the radically designed curved front panel (with flush and radius surfaces) provides excellent imaging characteristics and a much wider sweet spot, the KRK RP8 G2's rigid wood cabinet construction improves overall structural integrity, extended low frequency response and increased damping characteristics.

    Multiple Input Options
    At KRK, the focus is your mix. But it doesn't stop at creating accurate monitors. KRK appreciate the need for monitors that not only sound great but work easily in your particular set up. That's why you'll find plenty of input options on your KRK RP8 G2, so that it is sure to accommodate any studio environment. So if it's RCA, Quarter-Inch (balanced/unbalanced) or XLR inputs you require, the KRK RP8 G2 has got you covered.

    High Frequency Level Control
    While your KRK RP8 G2 leaves the factory voiced to KRK's demanding specs, KRK also knows that no two rooms 'sound' the same. As such, each Rokit G2 monitor comes equipped with a High Frequency Level Control. This feature provides specific adjustment of high frequency output most commonly affected by room acoustics. It's just one extra level of control that KRK gives you to ensure the most accurate mix for your particular room's acoustics.

    Front-Firing Port
    Take a look at competitive monitors and you'll find ports on the back of the cabinet. These rear-firing ports tend to create bass coupling with walls and corners, amplifying low frequency information, which will colour your mix. Just like its big brothers (VXT and Expose) the KRK RP8 G2 includes front-firing ports, which are just the right shape and taper to reduce port turbulence. You'll appreciate the clean and accurate bass performance this approach delivers, even at high SPL's.

    Input Gain Control
    Why compromise gain structure to achieve a comfortable listening level? As musicians and recording people, KRK know that your monitor has to work well with other components in your system, which is why they gave the RP8 G2 an ultra-compatible Input Volume Control that provides an adjustable gain range from +6dB to -30dB. This is just another example of how the KRK RP8 G2 lets you focus on your mix, and not on compatibility concerns.
