The Kali Audio IN-8 8" is a 3-way, tri-amplified powered studio monitor with an 8″ woofer and a 4″ midrange with a coaxial 1″ tweeter. The unique architecture of the mid-range driver and tweeter eliminates off-axis lobing, giving the IN-8 an incredibly accurate, life-like 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 features an 8″ woofer, a 4″ mid-range driver and a 1″ soft-dome tweeter. The mid-range driver and the tweeter are coincident, meaning that they share the same acoustic center. Because of the coincident placement of the midrange and tweeter, and the crossover of the woofer to the mid-range (330Hz), the IN-8 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 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 midrange 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 midrange 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, clean bass, a front-firing port tube, and our boundary compensation EQs.
