Connecting KRK Rokits

Connecting KRK Rokits

Hi All,

In this video I demo on how you would connect your KRK Rokits speakers to your various music production gear.

Hopefully this will give you an idea of how you can still use the krk speakers without going out there and spending further money to buy a audio interface or mixer.

Thumbs Up if you enjoy the video and if it has been of help.

Thank you.

  2. very helpful sir .. one small note your taste in music leaves alot to be desired , maybe play a few types of music . otherwise very useful and helpful.

  3. how to know which one is left which one is right one?

  4. How do you connect 1 speaker just with an aux?

  5. The only person who was so helpful and explained everything so good!

  6. I love how they don’t include a cable to actually connect it to the computer smfh

  7. Why can’t other tutorials be as good as this? Simple straight forward, easy to follow, no waffle. Excellent. Thank you so much.

  8. GREAT video! Thanks! Good detail, and all options covered. 🙂
    I will go for the balanced TRS-cables, since the KRK’s and my Focusrite soundcard both has balanced connections.
    I always thought I had to do TRS – XLR. So your info was just what I needed! Thanks!

  9. Are a pair of these loud? I need loud for Metal!

  11. Question: Can you plug in the xlr and trs cables at the same time? Would it work if both balanced inputs are plugged in?

  12. how do i connect krk 10s2 subwoofer to these ?

  13. To access HiRes files (such as FLAC) and enjoy much greater fidelity you could go Computer >> DAC >> Rokit via the RCA or XLR

  14. KRKs are great but after six years of sporadic use one of my 5’s is fucked.

  15. Will an rca cable create a seperated left and right experience? (Stereo)?

    Hey i bought two krk classic 5´s and have a question. i have an 3,5mm cable plugged in to my imac and on the other end of the cable there are a white and a red chinch cable. i plug one end of the cable in one krk monitor and one in the other monitor. when i turn the volume of my mac all the way up it is not that loud. so i adjust the volume button on the back. when i make the volume louder at the back of the krk it makes noise. how can i fix that? Sorry for bad english and thank you!

  17. Why do they come separately though

  18. Sorry i know this video is old but if you keep the aux splitter in your pc all the time without removing it do you have to adjust the volume down low or is it only when you first insert it the volume has to be low? appreciate a reply, thanks 🙂

  19. I have connected TV to speakers but I only hear part of the songs, I’m missing either Left or Right, how is that ?

  21. Great example video!!!!!!

  22. Does this give good bass as if you used an audio interface?

  25. How would you connect one monitor to a DJ controller ?

  26. so simple! thank you so much!

  27. I’ve been searching for weeks on how to connect a set of studio monitors to my computer. Couldn’t find a solid answer. I appreciate you brotha!

  28. How would you connect a sub? Could you just connect the sub to the KRK Rokit?

  29. Yeah mate but put the monitors in their proper stereo position like they should stay and then plug if you can rca …well u can’t …half of you video is pointless .sorry

  30. So I bought just one krk classic 5… I got a 1/4" – 1/8" cord to plug directly to my laptop but it sounds awful, can I use rca to 1/8" to just one speaker to my comp, or do I need an external sound card to plug 1/4" to? Thanks!

  46. Hello, I own a pair of Krk5’s G2, can I have both the TRS and the XLR balanced inputs plugged at the same time without risking damage? I would play either one or the other, but that way I wouldn’t have the need to plug and unplug cables all the time…

    I want to connect 2 Krk Rokits via quarter inch to Rca into the solo. Would this still be considered a balanced signal/connection?
