Featuring a flatter frequency response than the Rokit range.

KRK are one of the most well known names in studio monitors nowadays. It’s no surprise that their Rokit range is consistently pushing the envelope with regards to affordable and quality audio representation. Now, in comes the Classic series, after the success of the Classic 5, KRK have released two more offerings in the range, the 7 & 8.

Read all the latest product news here.

The Classic series from KRK takes design and functional cues from third generation Rokit speakers while boasting a flatter frequency response. Knobs on the back allow you to engage a 2dB bass boost to bring it more in line with the KRK sound or tweak them to the sound of your room.

These monitors uses their tried and tested 1″ soft dome tweeters with glass aramid woofers of whichever size you choose. The 7 and 8 Classic monitors can produce a frequency response of 47.5Hz-34.5kHz and 42.5Hz-28kHz respectively.

These 2-way monitors can deliver over 100dB of SPL, and feature a front firing bass port for close placement to walls and other surfaces.

Utilising class A/B amps, these speakers provide high headroom with minimal distortion. They come shipped with a foam pad that covers the entire bottom surface of the speaker, it’s not going to do much but it’s better than not having anything there!

There are three input options, XLR, balanced 6.5mm TRS and unbalanced RCA, allowing you to hook up basically any system.
