KRK Systems, a member of the Stanton Group of companies, is introducing the ROKIT RP10-3 ($TBA) mid-field three-way monitor system at Musikmesse 2011 in Frankfurt, Germany (Hall 6, Stand C52). The ROKIT RP10-3 is designed to deliver full-range professional performance in a mid-field monitor package.

The monitor's integrated low frequency driver and cabinet design promise true bass response down to 35Hz to yield an enhanced low end experience not found with other mid-field monitors. The ROKIT RP10-3 also offers a rotatable tweeter/midrange speaker mount plate that promises accurate acoustic alignment for vertical and horizontal installation, for use in any studio.

KRK states that the ROKIT RP10-3 is a true three-way speaker design offering accurate reference monitoring. With the RP10-3 a studio can offer clients the ability to listen to mixes at high sound pressure levels with well-defined bass response. At the same time, the ROKIT RP10-3 is said to deliver all the clarity and transparency expected from a professional monitoring system.

To accommodate any speaker-mounting configuration, the RP10-3 allows the midrange/tweeter assembly to be re-positioned for horizontal speaker placement. This is said to preserve the cabinets' proper axis orientation and sonic accuracy while allowing maximum setup flexibility. Cabinet placement allows for approximately 3 to 13 feet for rated performance; a contoured baffle design virtually eliminates high frequency diffraction distortion and widens the sweet spot for mixing.

The ROKIT RP10-3 offers Glass Aramid Composite 10-inch low and 4-inch midrange frequency drivers for excellent transient response and accurate vocal reproduction. The tweeter waveguide design optimizes directivity and promises an improved phase response. The KRK High Efficiency Tri-Amp triple amplification system provides discrete, low-distortion power expertly tailored to maximize the performance from each component speaker, while the three-way crossover systems ensure smooth and accurate frequency response appropriate to each component.

KRK says that the cabinets are capable of delivering a clean 140 watts RMS with a signal to noise ratio of 98 dB and a T.H.D. rating of .08-percent to yield up to 110dB music and 113dB maximum sound pressure levels.
