A New Generation Of Subwoofers From KRK

Coming spring 2021, the new series of KRK Studio Subwoofers will be available in 8-, 10-, and 12-inch variations: S8.4, S10.4, and S12.4.

Building on KRK’s legacy of sonic accuracy and performance, the new subwoofers deliver tight, accurate, and defined bass, while the highly efficient Class D power amplifiers dramatically increase transient response, control, and punch. The redesigned cabinets feature a more compact profile compared to their predecessors, allowing for improved placement flexibility and a timeless design that provides a more professional aesthetic.

The new Studio Subwoofers feature a wealth of connectivity options with XLR, 1/4" TRS, and RCA inputs and outputs that interface with just about any manufacturer’s studio monitors, mixers, and/or audio interfaces. With an exclusive bypass control feature, users can send full-range audio to their monitors at the click of an optional footswitch without having to move out of the monitoring sweet spot to turn off the subwoofer. This allows for instant comparisons with (and without) the subwoofer’s contributions to the sound. Additionally, polarity and input sensitivity controls allow for phase coherence and level-matching to enhance the quality of your mixes.

Additional refinements include modestly improved low-frequency extension, improved porting for enhanced low-frequency phase response and less port noise, as well as a four-position crossover frequency selection switch, making it easy to adjust the subwoofer’s settings to optimally match existing monitors. Designed with an inverted dust cap and removable all-steel grille option with reinforced MDF enclosure, KRK’s latest generation of subwoofers offer a durable solution with excellent driver protection. Additionally, the woven aramid composite woofer provides a rigid and lightweight driver for optimal sound quality and a front-firing port allows for placement near walls without interference from a rear-firing port, increasing the subwoofer’s overall flexibility.
