KRK releases 10s subwoofer
KRK Systems has just launched an updated version of its 10” recording subwoofer.
The new KRK10s incorporates a design that matches the company’s recently launched RokitG2 monitors, as well as significant feature enhancements that address real-world home, pro and project studio applications.
The industrial design of the KRK10s leverages KRK’s research and development into baffle design and fabrication. The subwoofer’s curved front matches the Rokit and VXT monitors’ diffraction reducing shape, making the KRK10s complementary with either of these products. The KRK10s can also be added to other active or passive monitor setups, thanks to its integrated, adjustable crossover and numerous 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.
According to KRK, powerful bass reinforcement is assured with the brand’s trademark yellow-cone, 10-inch, high excursion glass-aramid woofer. The voicing has also been slightly enhanced to provide better mix clarity and precision and the scientifically designed front firing port reduces wall coupling and port turbulence.
The KRK10s is announced at an MSRP of $399 and replaces the existing RP10s subwoofer.
