KRK Rokit 7 G4 Monitors Have Audible Hiss Noise Even With No Signal

It’s a shame my KRK Rokit 7 G4 monitors have an audible hiss noise even with no signal being sent to them. If you’re a photographer you may find my Lightroom Presets handy:

This is my take on the daily vlog concept.

Everyday I upload a 4 minute vlog, shot 4 minutes after the day before.

There’s no editing, no re-takes and no music over-dubs and they always finish right on the 4 minute mark, no exceptions.

  1. When I shutdown my computer, all my active speakers will hiss like a rattlesnake wtf!

  2. The Happy Canadian January 24, 2021 @ 7:58 pm

    those are sweet monitors

  3. I have the exact same problem

  4. Ah OK I see it to late in your video

  5. This topic has been discussed on as well, it exists with both the KRK Rokit G4’S and the KRK V Series 4 monitors which both use Class D amplifiers, and the hissing is the same if nothing is plugged into them. The original discussion blamed the DSP’s being used but that couldn’t account for the louder hissing coming from a more powerful monitor (7’s vs 5’s) the one thing everyone agreed on is that there’s no fix for it.

  6. I dont know if you’re still having the issue but I used to own the previous generation and was super annoyed about the buzz until i figured it was interference coming from my wire being too close to a plug socket. When I moved house the sound stopped and thats how I figured it out

  7. I think if you used a distraction technique that would surely relieve the excess frustration caused by noisy monitors, might I suggest half a dozen or so beauty pageant contestants dressed in bikinis and high heels tickling each other, I would consider this a tasteful and appropriate method of distraction….others may disagree with me.

  8. That’s why I chose the RP5s instead.

  9. Have you ever fixed it? I recently bought one and I am so infuriated by it.

    Annoying, but unlikely to cause mass hissteria..

    Wow . Good set up. You need what I had in my old computer sub . Makes nice sound . I hope when I am able I can use the old sound system I have

  12. I would try running them through a power conditioner. Also did you tune them?

  13. Here is something that will fix it. Just lower the volume on the monitors by lets say -10dB (my setting), and increase the output volume on your Audio Interface. For me with the -10dB it is barely noticeable (only if I get really close).

  14. 1. Class D amplifiers hiss.
    2. Check if you have a wifi router in close proximity; usually they interfere with the signal.
    3. Move that power extension board away from the speakers!
    4. Active speakers tend to pick up electromagnetic fields from power cables, routers, etc. If you crank them up to max volume it will be audible. Once I put my lsr305s on max volume and they were picking up my GPU coil whine.

  15. XLR to XLR cabel?
