KRK, leading manufacturer in monitor solutions has debuted two new powered subwoofers, the KRK12sHO and KRK12s at this years Musikmesse held in Frankfurt.

The KRK12s powered subwoofer enhances any professional and project studio monitor system by delivering accurate reproduction of the bass frequencies down to 34Hz.

In addition to the KRK12s the new KRK12sHO powered subwoofer can easily handle the sonic rigors of the surround sound arena, making it an ideal match for KRK's Exposé or VXT8 monitors driven to high sound pressure levels.

The KRK12sHO brings big system performance to any studio environment where ultra-accurate bass extension and maximum sound levels are required.

The KRK 12sHO cabinet features a 12-inch high excursion woven Kevlar driver cone set in a curved baffle front plate designed to virtually eliminate diffraction distortion.
