Kali Audio IN-8 3-Way Studio Monitor

Kali Audio's IN-8 is a 3-way studio monitor with an 8-inch woofer and a 4-inch midrange with a coaxial 1-inch 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 features an 8-inch woofer, a 4-inch mid-range driver, and a 1-inch soft dome tweeter. The midrange driver and the tweeter are coincident, meaning that they share the same acoustic center. You might have heard the terms "coaxial" or "concentric" to describe this arrangement. Those terms are technically correct as well.

Because of the coincident placement of the mid-range and tweeter, and the crossover of the woofer to the mid-range (330 Hz,) 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 midrange 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 1mm 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, clean bass, a front-firing port tube, and our boundary compensation EQs.

Customer Reviews
3 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
Overall: These are great speakers with one major flaw...the hiss coming from the HF/Mid driver is ridiculously loud. It’s audible at 3m(over 10 feet!) away...how they couldn’t remedy this is beyond me. Regarding all other aspects, it’s truly quite impressive. Open, revealing midrange, honest low-end, crisp highs...it’s a shame the hiss is so bad. You would have thought they had learned from the LP series. The most received complaint was hiss, and they did little to nothing about it. Not the smartest thing to do for a new company. They should honestly address this issue and come out with a new version, offering current owners a free replacement. I’ll bet the returns on these will be SUPER high...hope they do the right thing and fix it, I’d gladly pay $50 more per monitor for no hiss.
