3-way studio monitor with best imaging in its class.

Kali Audio's IN-8 V2 is a 3-way studio monitor with an 8" woofer and a 4" midrange with a coaxial 1" tweeter. The unique architecture of the Midrange and Tweeter eliminates off-axis lobing, giving the IN-8 an incredibly accurate, lifelike stereo image. The strength of the stereo image, combined with the clarity of the speakers overall, make it extremely 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-8 is part of Kali’s 2nd Wave of loudspeakers which allows for 12dB less self-noise, while increasing max SPL by 3dB. The tuning has been refined for smoother HF response and the boundary EQs have been updated to reflect common real-world use cases. Physical improvements include lighter transducer cones for better transient response and upgraded cabinet construction for greater reliability. Off-axis lobing that is unavoidable in a 2-way system is virtually eliminated with the IN-8. 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 to tweeter crossover, ensuring accurate summing both on- and off-axis. Excursion on the midrange 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. On top of this, the IN-8 incorporates all of the benefits of Kali's Lone Pine series monitors. These include optimized woofers for powerful bass, a front-firing port tube and boundary compensation EQs.
