The one thing that users keep mentioning is how much of an upgrade this generation is over the last. While the previous generation ROKIT 7 was criticized for its bloated low-frequency range, the G4 felt more refined to some users. The bass is more controlled and consistent (in a well-treated room) and others mentioned that you might not even need a sub if your room is treated well enough.
The LCD menu behind the speaker is cumbersome to use and many users would rather have knobs and switches.
If you're already a fan of KRK's ROKIT series and want a more refined low-end thump, less colored midrange, and better overall dynamics, the ROKIT 7 G4 is a good upgrade.
