KRK Systems is now shipping the R6 passive studio monitor, which incorporates design cues from KRK’s popular Rokit line, including radically radiused edges along the front of the cabinet.
The R6, like its Rokit brethren, provides a sleeker, more modern look, including a molded front baffle also engineered to minimize diffraction of high-frequencies, resulting in a sweet spot that is significantly larger than products with square or lightly rounded baffles.
The baffle also houses a molded front-facing bass port that minimizes low-frequency phase distortion and unwanted frequency emphasis typical of rear-facing bass ports.
The R6 voicing is designed to mimic the voicing of KRK’s Rokit 6 monitor, which is noted for its accuracy and mid-range clarity. The R6 features five-way speaker binding posts, a precision crossover and is capable of handling 100 watts (RMS) of power.
“While powered monitors make up the majority of the studio monitor business, there is still demand for passive monitors. The R6 addresses the needs of broadcasters, project studios and home enthusiasts by providing legendary KRK precision and accuracy in a passive speaker,” said Tony Rodrigues, Vice President of Marketing for KRK Systems.
