KRK Systems is one of the world’s most respected manufacturers of studio reference monitors. In our state of the art de-
sign facility, KRK engineers create products that deliver a natural and balanced spectral response with low distortion and 
superior imaging. With KRK monitors, recording engineers and artists hear every nuance of the audio being reproduced. 
KRK ROKIT Generation 3 monitors continue in this design philosophy, so regardless of your musical style, genre, or par-
ticular mixing needs, KRK ROKIT will deliver. Prove it to yourself with these few simple listening tips: 
1. Vocal clarity with extended bass response
Many manufacturers compromise the midrange frequencies in order to deliver lots of bass. KRK ROKIT 
Generation 3´s sonic response gives you both: vocal clarity and low-frequency extension. Take your 
favorite vocal piece that includes a bass guitar. Notice how the KRK ROKIT presents, in detail, all the 
vocals and midrange audio, as well as the notes of the bass guitar. 
2. 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.
3. High sound pressure levels — without distortion
Some monitors play loud, but distort at higher SPL’s. At KRK, we believe if it isn’t clean, it isn’t true at 
any volume level. That’s why you’ll find precision limiters, matched to our amplifiers in every ROKIT, 
designed to maintain distortion free sound and balanced response. So turn up a ROKIT and hear not 
just loud, but hear clean. 
4. Precise imaging from defined sweet spot
Place yourself in the sweet spot and listen to any demo selection: now notice the crisp defined image 
and depth that the ROKIT provides. See how you can hear each vocal and instrument where the recor-
ding 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.
5. Clean high-frequency extension
Some monitors boost high-frequencies or use gimmicky tweeters to achieve what appears to be supe-
rior high-frequency reproduction. The result often is a harsh high-end that quickly becomes fatiguing 
particularly at high volumes. Listen to the ROKIT at any SPL and note the high-frequencies are crisp, 
clean and don’t overwhelm the rest of the audio range.
