KRK10s combines new look and features with powerful, accurate bass reproduction 21/08/08
KRK Systems has launched an updated version of its 10â€� recording subwoofer. The new KRK10s incorporates a sleek industrial design that matches the companyâ€™s recently launched RokitG2 monitors, as well as significant feature enhancements that address real-world home, pro and project studio applications.
Hereâ€™s all the details in KRKâ€™s own wordsâ€¦
The industrial design of the KRK10s leverages KRKâ€™s research and development into baffle design and fabrication. The subwooferâ€™s curved front matches the best-selling Rokit and VXT monitorsâ€™ diffraction reducing shape, making the KRK10s the perfect complement to either of these products. The KRK10s is also a good addition to other active or passive monitor setups, thanks to its integrated, adjustable crossover and plethora of back-panel connection options.
Updated electronics include a ground-lift switch for combating less than perfect electrical and audio grounding and a bypass footswitch that allows the subwoofer and crossover to be easily enabled and disabled. The bypass footswitch allows users to easily switch a mix from stereo or 2.1/5.1 sound environments. Improved amplifier heat sinking results in lower distortion at high power levels and the KRK10s has a lower noise floor than its predecessor.
The KRK10s innovations also extend to the sound of the product. Powerful bass reinforcement is assured with KRKâ€™s trademark yellow-cone 10-inch, high excursion glass-aramid woofer. The voicing has been slightly enhanced to provide even better mix clarity and precision and the scientifically designed front firing port reduces wall coupling and port turbulence. â€œTodayâ€™s music demands accurate bass reproduction to ensure mixes remain punchy and powerful,â€� said Tony Rodrigues, Vice-President of Marketing for KRK Systems. â€œThe KRK10s allows even modest monitor setups to hear deep into the bass frequencies to provide the producer or engineer a clear image of what is going on in the mix.â€� Pricing and Availability:
The KRK10s replaces the existing RP10s subwoofer and will be available to buy in the UK from all good pro audio dealers for Â£299 inc. VAT
