KRK Intros Rokit RP10-3 Monitors

KRK Rokit monitors

Musikmesse 2011: KRK Systems has introduced the Rokit RP10-3, a mid-field three-way monitor system and the latest in their popular Rokit line.

The Rokit RP10-3 is designed to deliver “true bass response” down to 35Hz. The Rokit RP10-3 also offers a rotatable tweeter/midrange speaker mount plate, for more accurate acoustic alignment.

I haven’t had a chance to demo the RP10-3’s yet, but the Rokit line has been popular with home studio owners, because of their great performance for their price range. I’ll be interested to see how the RP10-3’s fit into their line-up.

Pricing is and availability are TBA.

Details below. 

Features:

  • True 3-Way Design enabling the most important part of the frequency spectrum to be reproduced by a separate midrange driver, resulting in a neutral midrange response.
  • Axis Control – The monitors can be placed and positioned vertically and horizontally without losing proper axis orientation.
  • Mid-Field – The Rokit RP10-3 is a mid-field monitor, with the optimal operating distance of 1m-4m depending on preference, room size, geometry, orientation, and configuration.
  • Curved Baffle virtually eliminates diffraction distortion
  • Front-firing Port is shape optimized to reduce turbulence and reduce boundary coupling.
  • Tweeter Waveguide design provides amazing detail and imaging by optimizing directivity and phase response.
  • 1? Neodymium Soft Dome Tweeter This tweeter design utilizes a silk dome for detailed high frequency reproduction.
  • Ferro fluid Damping / Cooling The properties of ferro-fluid are used to control distortion and heat dissipation of the tweeter.
  • Glass Aramid Composite creates very rigid Woofer and Midrange cones for transient response and accurate vocal reproduction.
  • KRK High Efficiency Tri-Amp a triple amplification system provides discrete low-distortion power for each driver.
  • Thermal and Overload / Clip Protection to prevent damage.
  • Volume Control on rear of unit allows a high resolution gain range from -30 dB to +6 dB.
  • HF Control enables adjustment of high frequency output most commonly affected by room acoustics.
  • LF Control enables adjustment of low frequency output most commonly affected by room acoustics.
  • Total Connectivity – The Rokit RP10-3 is fitted with dedicated balanced XLR, and¼” Line inputs and unbalanced RCA inputs.

  1. unlikely t'll give good bass performance in a cabinet that small, still, i hope i get a chance to hear them…

  2. mutantmoments – I use Rokit 5's myself, paired with a Rokit 10 sub, and have been happy with them for non-critical monitoring.

    I started with a the 5's, and the bass wasn't bad. Keep in mind that they're about 2' feet away when I'm working.

    For electronic music, though, the sub is a very worthwhile addition.

  3. Citing upgrades in materials and engineering whilst lending up krk's website as some kind of proof just makes you come across as a noob.
    Speakers weren't invented yesterday and everyone knows that.
    By the way I've got a set of 4 inch Acacia Avenue's which go down to 10hz 200W rms.
    50 quid their yours.

  4. I kind of have to agree with what was previously said though. A 10" woofer? That's the size of MOST sub-woofers that you purchase separately, and this monitor comes with that. And no, I'm not hardly a noob, I've worked with full range WestLake Audio monitors in commercial studios in Philly and NY, as well as mid range/near field setups since 96' .

    This definitely looks like a deal for the price. Anyone that understands correct recording principals and correct mixing/dsp concepts should be able to get much more accurate mixes out of this; which is usually the case with mid-field monitors in general compared to nearfield.

    The fact that you have a 4" woofer to handle most of the mid-range frequencies, like vocals and etc, makes absolute sense that this monitor will probably sound better than your average 5.25" – 8" nearfield monitor setup in that price range. And it could possibly rival some nearfields costing twice as much because of the 3way setup.

    I'm certainly keeping my eye out for it. It's not like KRK is a slouch compared to some other brands.

  5. Maz,

    The audible range of human hearing is 20Hz to 20kHz and the typical low end capability of a properly engineered studio monitor with significant upgrades in materials,is as low as 56Hz,or thereabouts.
    This being said,the physics of a 4" speaker producing a low end response all the way down to 10Hz is impossible and even if it was,you would not be able to hear it.

    Your statements make it abundantly clear,that you know absolutely nothing about performance specifications,acoustics,engineering or audio-period.
    In fact,you are the most ignorant newbie I have ever come across and it astonishes me that someone with absolutely no knowledge,education or back round could make such arrogant statements.
    You have no frame of reference whatsoever and there is really no point in trying to explain to you,just how out of your league,you are in this discussion.

    You don't believe me?Call up a sales supervisor at Sweetwater.com or post your statements on the TweakHeadz.com forum and see how far you get with your argument.

  6. You all sound like you're really into duvet covers. You should get a room and get all
    your frustrations out with some man on man ass eating.
