KRK VTX Studio Monitor
KRK’s VTX monitor range sits pretty much bang in the middle of KRK’s range of powered monitor loudspeakers. Powered speakers offer a number of advantages over traditional loudspeakers, not least convenience.
Being active loudspeakers the KRK VXT monitors need only a power cable and a signal cable; either balanced or unbalanced 1/4″ jack or balanced XLR. In other words, perfect for the project studio or for a direct connection to your DJ mixer.
KRK’s hugely successful Rokit range is very much aimed at those getting started and needing a lot of “bang-for-buck”. With the VXT range, however, KRK has aimed squarely at offering professional standard monitor speakers at an attainable price point.
The first thing you notice about the KRK VXT’s are the signature yellow, woven, Kevlar speaker cones; Kevlar is an extremely stiff material (it’s used for bulletproof vests!) and resists distortion at high volumes, ideal for any DJ. You can’t help but notice the distinctively shaped cabinets either…
The unique shape of the KRK VXT speakers is designed to reduce the effects of diffraction and internal cabinet resonances. These are the terms given to what happens when the energy from the back of the speaker, bounces around inside the cabinet. If it’s left unchecked it leads to an inaccurate sound with distortion and unpleasant peaks in the sound spectrum.
