Gearank High Notes
- March 2017: Highest Rated Studio Monitor Under $200
Note: The Rokkit G3 range has been superseded by the G4 range - for a similarly priced alternative see our analysis of the more balanced KRK Rokit 5 G4.
The KRK Rokit 6 G3 is the third iteration of KRK's popular studio monitor line, well known for its improved bass response.
It continues to invade studios world over - you can see their unmistakable yellow woofer on many YouTube videos.
The most notable feature of the Rokit 6 is its 6" Kevlar/aramid composite woofer and front firing bass port, which gives it more bass frequency response than other monitors. And because of that, you should go for something else if you want a flat response monitor.
This particular model has a 6" Kevlar/aramid composite woofer, which is slightly bigger than the usual 5" configuration you see in this price range.
