The 180-Watt NEKKST K10S Studio Subwoofer’s unparalleled, world-class performance is the result of a major collaboration between BEHRINGER audio engineers and loudspeaker master-designer/founder of KRK – Keith R. Klawitter. This incredible audiophile-grade subwoofer is ideal for all critical listening environments thanks to the custom-engineered bridge-mode amplifier that drives the 10″ glass-fiber woofer for rich, deep and tight bass. K10S’ front-firing port was designed for the ultimate in low-frequency extension – without the typical boundary coupling and port turbulence found in competing systems
Ever since founding KRK more than 25 years ago, I have devoted my life to creating the industry’s best-sounding studio loudspeakers. I was very excited when BEHRINGER asked me to design their new reference monitors. They gave me complete freedom to use the finest materials and apply my lifetime of knowledge in monitor design. Now, after two years and countless hours of intense design and listening, I have achieved that goal. I am proud of the NEKKST Reference Monitors. My best work yet.
Keith R. Klawitter received numerous Awards and provided the main mixing monitors for multiple Academy Awards and Grammy Awards shows. He completed custom projects for high-profile clients including Michael Jackson, Aaron Spelling and Steely Dan, plus worked with representatives for Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Metallica, and numerous other internationally recognized artists.
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
The NEKKST K10S is designed to provide a dedicated, audiophile-grade monitoring eco-system when paired with the NEKKST K8, K6, and K5 Studio Reference Monitors.
