Passive 3-way studio monitor with a 5" woofer, a coincident 4" midrange and 1" metal-dome tweeter.

The Kali Audio SM-5-C is a passive 3-way studio monitor with a 5" woofer and a 4" midrange with a coaxial 1" metal-dome tweeter. Part of Kali’s flagship Santa Monica series of speakers, the SM-5-C combines proven 3-way coincident architecture with uncompromising components to deliver unparalleled imaging, accuracy and detail for critical mixing applications.

Like Kali’s acclaimed IN-Series loudspeakers, the SM-5-C is an acoustic point source, and special care has been taken with the unique geometry around the midrange tweeter to ensure a seamless transition to the edge of the speaker. This gives the loudspeaker an ideal directivity characteristic, resulting in an engrossing stereo image where details are lifelike and crisp.
