Kali Audio's IN-5 is a 3-way studio monitor with a 5" woofer and a 4" mid-range with a coaxial 1" tweeter. The unique architecture of the mid-range and tweeter eliminates off-axis lobing, giving the IN-5 an incredibly accurate, lifelike stereo image. The strength of the stereo image, combined with the clarity of the speakers, make it very easy to build a complete, detailed picture of your mix. Every aspect of your mix is presented with clarity and accuracy, allowing you to dial in precisely the sound you want.

The IN-5 features an 8" woofer, a 5" mid-range driver and a 1" soft dome tweeter. The mid-range driver and the tweeter are coincident (or “coaxial” or “concentric”), meaning that they share the same acoustic center.

Because of the coincident placement of the mid-range and tweeter, and the crossover of the woofer to the mid-range (280Hz) the IN-5 is an acoustic point source. This gives it an ideal directivity characteristic for a studio monitor. You will be able to hear a very lifelike stereo image, with details placed clearly and consistently. Off-axis lobing that is unavoidable in a two-way system is virtually eliminated with the IN58.

Substantial work was done to optimize the mid-range driver not only for its own acoustic performance, but also for its role as the waveguide for the tweeter. The shape is very precise to allow for controlled directivity at mid-range Yesto tweeter crossover, ensuring accurate summing both on- and off-axis. Excursion on the mid-range is limited to less than 1 mm peak to peak, so that the oscillation of the mid-range does not have a negative effect on the tweeter.

The first in Kali’s “2nd Wave” of loudspeakers, the IN-5 features a Class-D amp with a 12dB reduction in self noise, an upgraded DSP section, and upgraded transducers for better reliability.

On top of this, the IN-5 incorporates all of the benefits of Kali's Lone Pine series monitors. These include optimized woofers for powerful, clean bass, a front-firing port tube, and boundary compensation EQs.
