DSP speaker with impressive treble response

With the KRK Rokit RP5 G4, recording and mixing fans get the fourth generation of this active two-way monitor speaker, impressing users with its integrated DSP features such as an equaliser, brickwall limiter, and room correction. These are conveniently controllable via a multifunction jog wheel and an illuminated LC display as well as a smartphone app. With its glass-aramid speakers, 5" in size for low frequencies and 1" in size for high frequencies, this speaker has an output of 55W RMS and produces a sound pressure level of up to 104dB SPL. Bass can be reproduced down to 43Hz. The treble spectrum extends up to 40kHz, which makes this a particularly open-sounding monitor.

LCD and brickwall limiter

The KRK Rokit RP5 G4's DSP-controlled equaliser is designed as a graphic EQ and is controlled by 25 different presets. This helps to optimally adapt the sound of the loudspeaker to its acoustic environment, and everything is conveniently displayed via an easy-to-read LC screen located on the back of the speaker. The KRK Audio Tools app offers additional tools for room correction and speaker positioning via iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. A built-in brickwall limiter protects the speaker when it is pushed to its limits and provides a balanced sound. Thanks to the balanced combo socket, the speaker can accommodate both XLR and jack connectors.

Flexibly adjustable entry-level monitor

The active KRK Rokit RP5 G4 is a good budget choice for beginners who want to get to know their monitoring environment with the help of a flexibly adjustable monitor speaker instead of trying out many different models with a fixed sound. It is suitable for home and project studios in which space is at a premium and very high volumes are unnecessary. If you don't have free space on the meter bridge or on your desk, you can place this monitor, which weighs just over 4.85kg, on a conventional speaker stand. For users of hardware that reacts sensitively to magnetic fields, the speaker's magnetic shielding is also a good argument in its favour.

About KRK

The KRK Systems brand, today a subsidiary of US guitar manufacturer Gibson, has existed since 1986, and has acquired as many years of experience in the construction and design of studio monitors. Today, KRK's product range has extended to include subwoofers and headphones, in addition to their near- and midfield monitors. KRK adepts include such illustrious names as Mark "Spike" Stent (Ed Sheeran’s sound engineer), Grammy winner Ed Cherney, rock producer Jacquire King, rock and metal producer Ulrich Wild as well as trance DJ Armin van Buuren.

Also available as a bundle

As a nearfield monitor speaker, small mixing rooms are the KRK Rokit RP5 G4's natural habitat. The speaker can be decoupled from its stand using a foam ISO pad, and these are also available in a bundle with a pair of KRK Rokit RP5 G4 speakers (article no. 491028). Monitor stands are also available as a ready-made set with a pair of these speakers (article no. 491026). If, on the other hand, you can do without DSP features and if less power and a more limited frequency range are sufficient, you can also take a look at the more affordable KRK RP5 Rokit G3 Classic (article no. 322608).

The best KRK Rockit generation for today
Yurko 13.12.2020
After my KRK Rokit 5 G2s broke down, which had been in operation for 12 years, I had to choose new studio monitors for my home studio. Unfortunately, while choosing right monitors I did not have the opportunity to listen to everything I wanted in my studio, local stores room acoustics did not allow you to fully experience the sound, but what exactly could be assessed regardless of the acoustic design is the constant noise level of the high-frequency speakers ... Despite the negative assessments of the noise level of the KRK G4 presented in the reviews, I noted the opposite for myself - no others were quieter than these. As a result, without thinking twice, I decided to make a forced upgrade from G2 to G4 (I had only one monitor out of order, if G2 were still on sale, maybe I would buy another one G2). The monitors are the same height as the second generation, but a little wider, about 1 centimeter, the "KRK yellow color" has become a little softer.
And now regarding the sound: for the sake of interest I decided to listen to the master tracks mixed on Rockit G2 and was amazed about how much more detailed the upper mids and high frequencies became and the width of the stage increased. Amazing! I am very happy about the choice I made.
There is an LCD display at the back, where you can make EQ adjustments - unfortunately, due to its limitations, this function, for me personally, is useless (maybe the built-in 16-band equalizer would be more suitable for this), I made all the room adjustments using other hardware-software (also did not even try to use the mobile application ). What's cool about this monitor is that now you can be 100% sure that the volume level of the monitors is set the same, there was no confidence in the accuracy of the position of the analog regulators in previous generations. Also, you can make the logo glow a little less, or turn it off, but (!) when they are switching to standby mode, dim settings do not matter, and the logo starts blinking from the absolute absence of glow to the brightest, doesn't matter wether dim mode is selected or not. I could not find any other cons. Everything is very, very good.

Na
Really balanced and with some kick
Not an audio engineer 09.02.2022
Although I do some video editing and very simple music production I am not really an audio engineer, nor musician. I do like good sound though and I own and have owned multiple speakers and headphones. For pleasure and more studio focused flat ones. As I was looking to set up my new office space I decided to go for studio monitors because not only they sound a thousand times better than any other PC speakers, they are generally not fatiguing too . So how did I end up with KRK- I tested Presonus line (3.5, 4.5BT) with Presonus sub8, also M-audio BX5. And well.. Presonus had a tot missing in high frequences but I was generally very happy with M-audio, however they had a couple of design issues although sounded pretty flat and natural. However when I compared them with KRK it felt like someone took the cotton out of my ears. KRKs have such a nice high frequency response. Not only it gives more info, it's not really sharp or unpleasant. The stereo imaging is fantastic so the staging in the end is very effective, the mids are precise and well balanced even in complex rock songs they perform without a fault. The lows are very good too. I ran some audio-tests and they go even lower than advertised but generally are excellent across the range. Combine them with the sub to give a bit more of excitement on lower volumes (Cheap Presonus sub8 pairs nicely too) and you will have an incredible audiophile level listening experience at your desk. There is plenty of bass when you turn them up a little so for audio mastering sub is not needed imho. I cannot think of anything in this price range able to match such combo. The KRKs are build very well, the eq setting works well and what is nice is that you can be 100% sure volume is the same on both speakers.

Obviously the experiences are very personal especially for non professional listening, but I personally cannot find anything to complain about Rockkit 5

S
Execellent for the price.
SEGFAULT 12.02.2022
I purchased these for my living room studio. They are pin sharp (sometimes uncomfortably so) and more than powerful enough, easilly filling a large room with sound up to an uncomfortable volume.

The array of DSP features on these is a little overwhelming at times, but genuinely valuable. My favourite is digital volume control, which allows me to turn both monitors to a reasonable level without ever fearing that one will be set louder than the other. It also has EQ which is nice, but can't replace proper room correction.

Build quality is solid, and strongly recommend these to anyone looking for a mid price range near field.

J
Soft but detailed as supposed to be for KRK.
JSound 12.10.2020
As expected from specs, tests and graphics it has mids to listen and port is hard to overrate to, even 5-inch allows to work with bass/kick/guitar low area comfortably. Bass do not sound 80hz boosted as hifi, no brilliance atc. So I would say – yes they are pretty flat and 40k highs means no drop up to 20k for sure, lightweight and stiff kevlar cones atc… so overall I think they are good. Like build quality.
