Hi
I had a pair of krk rokit 5s and were pretty satisfied with them but were looking for a little more low end and a louder volume so I bought a used pair of krk rokit 8s off ebay, After I tested them I concluded that the rokit 8s are not any louder than the 5s even thought they look twice as big. They have a lot more bass but overall are not louder (dB) than the 5s. Thats just the way I feel. Did I expect too much from them or could there be something wrong with them? I

Im using a focusrite scarlett 2i2 audio interface. Is there a way to make them louder? Dont get me wrong they are already pretty loud but I'm just curious. So In order to make them louder I have to get a different interface?

I can't answer that, I'm not familiar with recording interfaces which is what th focusrite scarlett 2i2 is.

I see the rokit speakers have a built-in, mains-powered amp, have you checked the position of the volume knob on the rear panel of the main 8s speaker?
