Kali Audio Lone Pine LP-6 V2 6.5" Powered Studio Monitor - Single

6.5-inch active studio monitor featuring an advanced waveguide, powerful drivers, and low noise port tube make it an extremely accurate speaker for all genres and formats

MFR# LP-6 V2

Product Description

The Kali Audio Lone Pine LP-6 V2 is a 6.5-inch active studio monitor. It was designed to deliver transparent sound for creators working across genres and formats at a price that puts it within anyone's reach. An advanced waveguide, a large voice coil, and precision tuning make the sound extraordinarily transparent, while the oversized low frequency magnet and low noise port tube deliver powerful, clean bass response. To make it easy to integrate into your setup, the speaker is self-powered and has a variety of inputs. The DSP features Boundary EQ settings that optimize the speaker's response for where it's placed in your listening space.

New in the 2nd Version is an improved amplifier platform that offers lower noise, higher sensitivity, and smoother high-frequency response. The Boundary EQ settings have been updated based on user feedback, and the low-frequency driver cone has less mass for more consistent response.

3-D Imaging Waveguide


The 3-D Imaging Waveguide allows you to hear a 3-D soundstage from a stereo pair of speakers. By matching the shape of the waveguide to the interactions of the HF and LF drivers, this waveguide produces a stereo image that is wider, taller, and deeper than the space where the speakers are placed.

The LP-6 accomplishes this by ensuring that the speaker’s reflected sound matches its direct sound. Every time you hear a loudspeaker, you're hearing both the direct sound from the speaker, and reflections from the speaker's signal bouncing off of objects in the room.

When those reflections are congruent with the direct sound from the speaker, listeners perceive a better sound overall, and are able to make out very subtle details like where microphones are placed in a room. When done very well, the stereo image will be three-dimensional.

This gives users a very high degree of confidence in their mix. It allows them to mix faster, and produce better mixes overall.

1.5” Voice Coil


On most port tubes, air leaves at different speeds from different points of the opening, creating noisy turbulence. This turbulence can be heard as "chuffing," or an audible air sound coming from the monitor. This sound will add to the noise floor and obscure the details of the low end.

The port tube on LP-6 was designed to ensure that all of the air leaves the port tube at the same velocity. This helps add to the low end response of the speaker, while keeping the bass clean, tight, and devoid of extra noise.

High Output


Bass on the LP-6 is delivered by a larger magnet and larger voice coil than any comparable speaker on the market. This gives you more accurate bass response that extends lower, so you can dial in exactly the low end sound you need. Nothing is over-represented, but the bass that is present on your track will come through with clarity and punch.

Boundary EQ

Kali's team came up with boundary compensation EQ settings at the Village Recorder in Los Angeles to help you get the optimum sound for where you need to put your speakers. Combined with the LF and HF trims, this will ensure that the speakers sound their best no matter what room you're mixing in.

There are EQ settings for:

  • Free Space
  • Speakers on stands, against a wall
  • Speakers on a desk, away from a wall
  • Speakers on a desk, against a wall
  • Speakers on a console meter bridge
  • Speakers on a studio desk

Class D Amplification


The integrated 40W + 40W Class D Power amp delivers clean, reliable power that's optimized to this speaker. The new 2nd Wave amplifier platform delivers all this with significantly lower idle noise, and better sensitivity than the original version.

XLR, TRS, and RCA Inputs


The LP-6 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.

2nd Wave Technologies

The LP-6 V2 is part of Kali’s 2nd Wave of loudspeakers. 2nd Wave products draw on 3 years of R&D for across-the-board improvements. A new amplifier platform allows for 12 dB less self noise, while input sensitivity has been increased by 3 dB. 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.



  • 12 dB lower self noise
  • 3 dB higher max SPL
  • Smoother HF response
  • New boundary EQ settings
  • Upgraded, lighter transducer cones
  • Improved cabinet construction

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

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.
