Vocal clarity with extended bass response
Many manufacturers compromise the midrange frequencies in order to deliver lots of bass. KRK Rokit 5 Generation 3’s sonic response gives you both: vocal clarity and low-frequency extension. Take your favorite vocal piece that includes a bass guitar and you’ll notice how the KRK Rokit presents, in detail, all the vocals and midrange audio, as well as the notes of the bass guitar.

Clean, tight bass reproduction
Everyone loves clean, tight bass reproduction. This is achieved with the proper tuning of the woofer, cabinet and port, otherwise you’ll experience muddy bass. Grab a kick drum demo and notice how the KRK Rokit’s bass is tight and well defined.

High sound pressure levels without distortion
Some monitors play loud, but distort at higher SPL’s. KRK gives the Rokit 5 precision limiters, matched to the amplifiers and designed to maintain distortion free sound and balanced response.

Precise imaging from defined sweet spot
Rokit 5 G3 provides crisp defined image and depth. Hear each vocal and instrument where the recording engineer placed them. Even if you move your head off axis you will notice the sound character remains consistent and you don’t lose either side of your mix.

Clean high-frequency extension
Some monitors boost high-frequencies or use gimmicky tweeters to achieve what appears to be superior high-frequency reproduction. The result often is a harsh high-end that quickly becomes fatiguing particularly at high volumes. Listen to the Rokit 5 at any SPL and note the high-frequencies are crisp, clean and don’t overwhelm the rest of the audio range.
