At this year's NAMM show, Behringer expands it's Nekkst studio monitor lineup to include a few new sizes and options for DJ's and producers on a budget. The Behringer Nekkst series monitors were created by the founder of the KRK monitors, Keith R. Klawitter, so you know they are really going to pack a punch and perform up to expectations. The Behringer Nekkst series is now available in K5 (5-inch), K6 (6-inch), K8 (8-inch), and K10 (10-inch subwoofer).

The Nekkst series looks strikingly similar to the KRK Rokit lineup with silver colored woofers instead of the yellow woofers the KRK line is known for. They also have the same inputs and controls as the KRK Rokit series and they are even offered in the same sizes. The K5 will run $150, K6 for $180, K8 for $200, and the K10 subwoofer costs $250. Check out the quick rundown video and the press release for more information on these budget monitors...
