A Modestly Priced, Reference-level Nearfield
KRK worked with hundreds of engineers and producers to get the response right for its V8 Series 4 monitors. The key ingredients were a ported cast-aluminum/MDF enclosure and a complement of custom Kevlar drivers: an 8″ woven woofer and 1″ dome tweeter that are, together, flat from 35Hz to 19Khz ±3dB). This full, flat response makes KRK V8 Series 4s a serious budget option for mixing, mastering, and all demanding listening applications.
KRK V8 Series 4 monitors: not just a pretty face
Under the hood, KRK’s dual Class D amplifiers deliver 230 watts to the drivers for an impressive 118dB SPL. Its 14 user-selectable EQ settings allow you to overcome shortcomings in your listening environment. Other features that impressed us at Sweetwater include a friction-lock Neutrik connector for XLR or TRS cables, a universal threaded mounting bracket, a precise 7-way attenuation switch for level matching, and an EVA foam pad for acoustic isolation.
