Kali Audio IN-8 2nd Wave

collapse expand iconDescription

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 new 2nd Wave version of the IN-8 uses a new amplifier platform for better signal to noise ratio, and smoother HF response. Improvements have also been made to the transducer cones and the cabinet construction. 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 picture of your mix.
