The ROKIT 7 is a step up in size and power from the ROKIT 5.

Featuring a 7" Kevlar Woofer versus the ROKIT 5's 5" Kevlar Woofer, the ROKIT 7 has a deeper frequency response and overall wider dynamic range.

The front-firing port gives more low-frequency thump without being overbearing.

  • Driver: 7" Kevlar Woofer, 1" Kevlar Dome Tweeter
  • Amplifier: 145W Class D
  • Inputs: 1 x XLR-1/4" combo
  • Frequency Response:42Hz-40kHz
  • Enclosure: Ported
  • Controls: Controlled via KRK Audio Tools Mobile App
  • Dimensions: 13.35" x 8.86" x 11.19" "
  • Weight: 16.76 lbs.

Pros

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.

Cons

The LCD menu behind the speaker is cumbersome to use and many users would rather have knobs and switches.

Overall

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.

Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Studio Monitors.
