Klawitter DesignsFeel The Music
At Klawitter Designs we have a singular goal: Deliver a studio monitor listening experience that places you as close as possible to the source; that makes the speaker virtually disappear; that lets you not just hear your music,
but feel your music.
That ethos - and the ability to make it a reality - is a legacy bestowed upon the company by our founder, world-class speaker designer Keith R. Klawitter, the man behind the extraordinarily successful KRK Systems monitors. Having spent the last 30+ years refining the performance of each critical component in a self-powered monitor system, Keith is now delivering a true next-level monitoring experience, one in which technical performance details such as frequency response, imaging, dynamic response, linearity, and phase coherence are so expertly dialed-in and executed that they disappear into the sound and let you just feel the music.
Maybe you can't be in the studio with the band, but KD monitors can put them in the control room with you...
KD Elite Series Reference Monitors
These rather stunning (if we say so ourselves) new monitors exemplify the Klawitter Designs philosophy: Make the speaker as transparent as possible; deliver a sound that makes the speaker's excellent technical performance disappear into the experience of hearing and feeling the music.
Available in 6.5" and 8" models, along with a complementary 12" subwoofer, the KD Elite series are the culmination of decades of research into refining and improving monitor performance, with significant advancements made in three key areas:
Highly linear frequency response
Precise time-alignment with exact phase coherence
Ultra low-distortion throughout the entire audio path, from initial input to final output
The result is speakers that sound, well...that don't actually sound like speakers. They sound like your music.
Scores of leading producers, engineers and artists rely on their Klawitter-designed monitors to deliver world-class results. Just ask Bob Clearmountain, Elliott Scheiner, Peter Gabriel, Stevie Wonder, Trent Reznor, Graham Nash, Taylor Swift, Allison Krause, Martina McBride...
Klawitter Designs monitors accept both analog and digital source signals, offering setup flexibility for users and installers, and providing the option to maintain a high-resolution digital audio stream right up to the integrated amplifiers driving the KD speaker components.
Distributing high-resolution audio to any number of locations has never been easier; with the addition of an optional Dante or AVB network card users are able to connect and manage high numbers of select Klawitter Designs monitors utilizing a generic connector and cable configuration.
Klawitter Designs monitors are self-aware and report their performance status back through the network, providing assurance to the engineer that each monitor is performing to its optimum specification.
Klawitter Designs monitors can be easily configured, tuned and adjusted remotely from any computer or smart-device, eliminating the need for the user to access a control panel or adjust a confusing array of switches.
As part of Klawitter Designs' strict quality ethos, we specify, design and implement only components that contribute to the best possible sound.
