KRK Introduces the ROKIT 4 Compact Studio Monitor

KRK, a manufacturer of audio monitors for mixing and mastering, has introduced the smallest desktop monitor in its ROKIT line, the ROKIT 4.

KRK's ROKIT 4 G3 (Generation 3) powered studio monitor offers professional performance and accuracy for recording, mixing, mastering and playback. The system consists of a one-inch soft dome tweeter and four-inch glass-Aramid composite woofer.

The monitor delivers high frequencies up to 35kHz, vocal clarity and extended bass response. The proprietary bi-amped, class A/B amplifier grants SPL up to 100dB. The ROKIT waveguide is designed to ensure detailed imaging in the listening position.

The front-firing bass port reduces boundary coupling to allow flexible positioning in the room while the surface reduces diffraction distortion.

The ROKIT 4 is the most compact solution of the ROKIT series. It was designed for small desks that require big sound. It is available in black, white or silver.

There are multiple audio input connectors (XLR, ¼-inch and RCA) for universal connectivity in any studio environment. A factory-installed foam pad provides isolation between the speaker and surface.


The monitor handles a total power of 30 watts, high frequency power of 10 watts and a low frequency power of 20 watts, with peak SPL at 100 watts. Each monitor is priced at $139.50.
