Why Studio Monitors are so Important
The goal of a great studio monitor is to present an accurate representation of your mix, so you can tell how well it will translate to the diverse listening environments and systems of today, such as car stereos, club sound systems, radio, portable digital music players and others. The remarkably-flat bass response of the NEKKST K10S allows you to work with the complete confidence that your mixes will “play” accurately on these systems and to your audience at large.
Keith R. Klawitter – the Man Who Invented Studio Monitors
Renowned acoustic icon and founder of KRK, Keith Klawitter, designed the ultra-linear, reference-class NEKKST Series studio monitors and subwoofer. Featuring Keith’s Advanced Waveguide Technology for the ultimate acoustic dispersion, the NEKKST Series generates an extremely large “sweet zone”, for the ultimate in professional-grade studio monitoring. Adding the amazing K10S subwoofer to your monitor system allows you to experience exactly how your mix’s bass content plays in vivid detail – thanks to its powerful 300-Watt bridge-mode amplifier, 10″ glass-fiber woofer and synergistic design. The NEKKST K10S not only satisfies seasoned engineers and producers, but makes audiophile-level sound accessible to both home and professional recording studio applications. Keith Klawitter wrote the book when it comes to modern studio monitors, and to quote the monitor-master, “This is my best work yet!”
Clean, Accurate Bass
The NEKKST K10S 10″ Studio Subwoofer owes its remarkable bass response to Keith Klawitter’s front-firing port and scientifically-curved front baffle design, which provides superb low-frequency extension and amazingly-clean sonic performance. A considerable investment of Keith’s time and research went into perfecting the interplay between the K10S’ woofer and port to maximize efficiency – and minimize the effects of port compression. You’ll hear your mix’s low end in a more accurate way, ensuring your music always sounds its best in every listening environment.
The K10S’ long-throw 10″ woofer is made with deformation-resistant, glass-fiber cone and built into a high-density composite enclosure that virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides ultra-low diffraction. If anyone on the planet knows studio monitors, it’s Keith Klawitter. He has made it his life’s mission to create systems that add tremendous value to world-class artists and engineers, who depend on the ultimate in mix accuracy. Keith himself refers to the NEKKST Studio Monitor Series as, “my best work!”
The ability to adapt to a wide range of acoustic conditions is of paramount importance, and the K10S delivers extreme versatility in this arena. The streamlined rear panel features a variable low-pass filter and phase switch for setting the optimal crossover alignment for your system. So, whether your mixing application takes you on the road, or into your favorite recording studio – you can count on the NEKKST Series to deliver mixes that are consistently-accurate across a wide range of listening environments.
Connectivity and Compatibility
Since a subwoofer’s output is contingent on the quality of its input, the NEKKST K10S includes a servo-balanced front end and accepts XLR, TRS and unbalanced RCA connectors, providing for very flexible connectivity. The “Planet Earth” power supply ensures maximum compatibility (100 – 240 V~), noise-free audio and superior transient response, all while consuming very little power. High-quality components throughout and exceptionally rugged construction ensure long life and maximum durability for your investment.
