Nashville, TN (November 5, 2019)—KRK Systems has debuted its new Classic 5 Professional Bi-amp Studio Monitors, designed with an eye towards adapting and adopting concepts from the brand’s previous Rokit lines.
Jimmy R. Landry, global director of Marketing, Pro Audio Division, Gibson Brands, noted that during the development process, the company “zoomed in and fine-tuned certain components to make it an incredibly versatile monitor for music creation, mixing and mastering.”
The powered nearfield studio monitor sports an optional +2dB KRK Bass Boost, a bi-amped Class A/B amplifier with built-in automatic limiter and a low-resonance enclosure for minimized distortion and colorization. Additionally, a five-inch lightweight, glass-Aramid composite woofer is claimed to provide clear midrange and tighter bass, and a one-inch soft dome tweeter with waveguide provides highs up to 35 KHz.
The Classic 5 monitor also comes preinstalled with hi-density foam pads underneath to decouple the speaker enclosure from the surface, aiming to provide clarity and more accurate frequency response.
The monitors also feature a front-slotted bass port, which reduces boundary coupling and aids positioning within a room, and high- and low-frequency controls so that users can adjust the monitor’s sound to their environment and preference. Multiple inputs (XLR, ¼-inch, RCA) provide connectivity for the Classic 5.
