KRK Systems has released the Rokit G4 product range. The new line of studio monitors, which includes 5-, 7-, 8- and 10-inch models, has reportedly been completely redesigned from the ground up.
The Rokit G4s feature an on-board, DSP-driven, graphic EQ with 25 settings, visible via an LCD screen. The monitors also sport advanced drivers made with Kevlar, Class D power amplifiers and a front-firing port to aid bass reproduction and reduce listening fatigue.
“Our team put a great deal of time, energy and research into developing this product that has the power to transform any environment into a professional project studio,” says Jimmy R. Landry, global director of marketing, Pro Audio Division, Gibson Brands. “If you compare the KRK G4 monitors with the G3s, you will instantly hear the difference between the two, especially on the low-end accuracy — it’s dimensional with a lot of detail. The high-end is more open and detailed as well. With selectable DSP-driven EQ presets and an onboard LCD, the user experience has significantly improved – and we believe there isn’t a more complete studio monitor available at this price point that delivers such high-end performance.”
The KRK Rokit G4 monitors feature a low-resonance enclosure and a high-density foam isolation pad that decouples the speaker from the surface.
The biamplified G4 range includes RP5 (5-inch), RP7 (7-inch) and RP8 (8-inch) models; an additional triamped version, the RP10-3 (10-inch), incorporates a 4.5-inch mid-range woofer and one-inch tweeter for midfield monitoring. The RP10-3 can also be arranged in horizontal mode by allowing the user to rotate the midrange woofer and tweeter by 90 degrees.
All G4 models feature a built-in brick-wall limiter, which automatically engages at maximum amp-level to maintain a balanced sound and protect the system. The company expects to soon release a smartphone app for iOS and Google Play which will assist with monitor placement; level matching; subwoofer level and crossover setting assistance; polarity; and EQ for all KRK monitor lines.
