KRK Systems, part of the Gibson family of brands, has introduced the CLASSIC 5 Professional Bi-amp Studio Monitors to its family of professional-grade monitor offerings. KRK’s CLASSIC 5 was designed using concepts from the brand’s previous ROKIT lines to deliver the same high-quality mixes.
“With this CLASSIC 5 studio monitor, we took into consideration what people have always loved about creating music on previous KRK monitors. From there, we zoomed in and finetuned certain components to make it an incredibly versatile monitor for music creation, mixing and mastering. With the optional +2dB KRK Bass Boost, the new CLASSIC 5 can hold true to the acclaimed KRK sound that music creators around the world have loved for years.”
Delivering a multitude of features to meet the needs of producers and engineers, KRK’s CLASSIC 5 is a versatile powered nearfield studio monitor—great for any style of music. The CLASSIC 5 monitors have a multitude of classic features including a bi-amped Class A/B amplifier with a built-in automatic limiter and a low-resonance enclosure for minimized distortion and colorization. Additionally, the five-inch lightweight, glass-Aramid composite woofer delivers clear midrange and tighter bass, and a one-inch soft dome tweeter with optimized waveguide provides highs up to 35KHz and ensures detailed imaging in the listening position. The CLASSIC 5 monitor also comes preinstalled with hi-density foam pads underneath to decouple the speaker enclosure from the surface; this helps with clarity and more accurate frequency response.
KRK CLASSIC 5 Professional Bi-amp Studio Monitors also feature a front-slotted bass port, which reduces boundary coupling and allows for flexible positioning within a room. With high- and low-frequency controls, users can adjust the monitor’s sound to their environment and preference, adding versatility and improved accuracy for mixes that translate in any setting. Additionally, multiple input connections (XLR, ¼-inch, RCA) ensure the CLASSIC 5 will seamlessly integrate into any system configuration, allowing for universal connectivity.
