Do you think rokit8 are too big in size(large), and too much powerful speakers , if the usage of these are for listening music and watch movies in my room and ocasionally to listen music outside home with the friends , portability results little tricky?

It is better to get rokit 6" , are they more suitable and pretty enough? Or you recommend going with 8"s ? !!!

Thanks !

I think this is a question you have to answer for us. That is, only you can know if the speakers are too big for you and your situation.

Though it would help if we knew the dimensions of the room, and how far from the speaker you typically sit?

Also, how much space do you have available to place the speakers? For example on a Desktop, there is a limited amount of space to effectively place the speakers. However, in a lounge, you have more space and are likely to sit farther away.

The devil is always in the details.

You also want to look up the physical dimension of the speakers, and their specs.

The KRK Rokit 8 have a rated low end of 35hz with is very good for a bookshelf speaker.

The Dimension of the Rokit 8 -

  • Dimensions (D x W x H): 11.73" (298mm) x 10.83" (275mm) x 15.50" (394mm)

Rated at 35hz.

Note, 11 inches wide and 15.5" tall. Those are significant speakers.


The KRK Rokit 6 are rated down to 38hz, which is still pretty good.

The Dimensions of the Rokit 6 -

  • Dimensions (D x W x H): 10.87" (276mm) x 8.82" (224mm) x 13.0" (330mm)

So, about 9" wide and 13" high. Rated at 38hz.

Then we consider the cost. The larger 8" speaker is going to cost more money. How does that fit with your budget?


If we compare the relative size of the 6" Rokit 6 to the size of the 8" Rokit 8, we find that the Rokit 8 is actually a little more that twice as big relative to cone area.


How does this information fit with you needs and limitations?
