Kali Audio IN-8 8" 3-Way Powered Studio Monitor - Single – No Longer Available

3-way, 140-watt Class D active studio monitor delivering a clear, lifelike stereo image with its coaxial midrange and high-frequency drivers along with an 8" woofer
MFR# IN-8

Product Description

The Kali Audio IN-8 is a powered 3-way monitor featuring the powerful 8” woofer from the LP-8 series paired with a coaxial tweeter and midrange combo. The added midrange behaves like a waveguide for the tweeter, which lessens distortion and heightens clarity. Its hyper-realistic soundstage makes it a suitable monitoring system for making critical decisions that translate clearly across multiple playback systems.

Imaging

The IN-8 monitors produce a wealth of spatial information that isn’t perceivable on standard 2-way monitors. Monitors built using separated tweeters and woofers typically lack the ability to produce a full stereo image; however, the IN-8’s tweeter and midrange share the same space, thereby lessening the distance between the woofer and the midrange. The unique relationship forms an acoustic point source. The soundstage that you experience will have every detail that’s present in the mix.

Clarity

Much of the stellar performance of the IN-8 results from the tweeter and midrange occupying the same space. This feature lessens the amount of work required from each. By unburdening the tweeter and woofer, the IN-8’s total harmonic distortion is at an exceptionally low 1.4%. The midrange also acts as a waveguide for the tweeter, which is why the shape is precisely engineered to provide an ideal dispersion characteristic for the tweeter.

As a waveguide, the midrange is also designed to remain still during playback. This is accomplished by keeping its peak excursion limited to 1mm.

Ease of Use

As most know, the placement of studio monitors can drastically alter the frequency response. To aid proper placement, Kali’s team organized a set of compensation EQ settings pictured on the back panel. Using these recommended settings and HP / LP trims, the speakers will sound great regardless of room style or speaker placement.

The IN-8 features balanced XLR and TRS inputs, and an unbalanced RCA input. The RCA input can be set to -10 dBu sensitivity when you’re using consumer devices like a laptop or smartphone’s headphone jack.

FEATURES:

  • Co-Axial Midrange and Tweeter: A three-way with impeccable imaging
  • 8-Inch Woofer: Powerful, clean bass; crossed over at 330 Hz to make the IN-8 an acoustic point source
  • Low Noise Port Tube: Precisely engineered using airflow simulations for powerful bass without port noise

These have been the best monitors. My personal experiences, better response than krk rokit8. A must have!!

By Blane G on November 15, 2020

Bought these last week. I do VO and my daughter is using my studio for a wide range of song writing collaboration and recording projects during Covid-19. While we've used Sennheiser cans for mixing, her projects in particular need monitors. She's a session vocalist and most of her mixes have 10+ layers of vocals. The LP8's are very honest sounding and you can hear each layer very clearly and distinctly, which has allowed her to generate far better / more complete mixes, gaining kudos from producers she works with. She's actually re-mixed quite a bit of prior work and is very happy with the result. I did quite a bit of research before this purchase and the folks at VKLA were awesome to work with.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
