V8 Series 4 Powered Reference Monitors
The new V-Series combines the best of modern technology while getting back to what made KRK an industry standard in professional studios for the past 30 years running. The KRK V8 a two-way, full-range studio reference monitor with professional performance and accuracy for recording, mixing and mastering
It features a 1” KRK designed Kevlar® tweeter and 8” lightweight KRK designed woven Kevlar® woofer. Using Kevlar® for both the woofer and tweeter these KRK monitors give you extremely smooth midrange definition without colorization and pristine high-end with tight, controlled low-end as well as a wide sweet spot and beautiful imaging. The 230W KRK designed, bi-amped Class-D amplifier delivers superior transient speed and up to 118 dB of SPL. KRK´s optimized front-ported bass reflex enclosure design avoids boundary coupling to allow flexibility in room positioning. 49 different DSP driven EQ presets deliver superior control for room/desk correction as well as personal taste. The solid aluminum front-baffle and EVA foam pad is like having a built in stabilizer that improves transient response and imaging.
V Series monitors include grill covers to keep your speakers protected for life.
Dedicated Class-D amplifiers power the 1" custom Kevlar® dome tweeter and woven Kevlar® woofer. Ranging from 85 to 230 watts there is a V Series near-field monitoring solution for even the most demanding of listening environments.
49 user selectable EQ settings to ensure proper setup for room acoustics, placement anomalies, and individual preference. Our design team has painstakingly modeled and analyzed hundreds of monitor placement and room acoustic situations to ensure that KRK delivers the most useful tools with minimal adjustments.
Building on our 30 year legacy in developing and building world class studio monitors, we worked with hundreds of pro engineers, producers, and mixers to develop these groundbreaking monitors. Recording and broadcast studios as well as sound design and audio production houses will benefit from adding the V Series 4 as the go to monitor of choice.
... when I come across a speaker that has that depth and clarity without that hyper-detailed quality, I’m very happy, and these new KRKs made me happy.
The unquestionable results that you do get are accuracy and a stereo picture that you might otherwise have to spend a lot more to achieve. There’s a separation here across both upper and lower ranges that explodes your mix into the parts that you want to hear, enabling the precision engineering you lust after when mixing – honing in by frequency or timbre to make adjustments in EQ and level is therefore that much easier.
