Three way monitor - two axes

The IN-8 2nd Wave active nearfield studio monitor from Kali Audio is a three-way monitor that a uses coaxial architecture for the midrange speaker and tweeter. Above the 8" woofer for bass reproduction is a 4" midrange speaker, in the middle of which is a 1" tweeter. The midrange speaker and tweeter are thus positioned on the same acoustic axis, resulting in very precise stereo imaging. On the rear panel, there is a row of DIP switches for adjustment to the acoustic environment, a volume control, and a convenient selection of inputs (XLR, TRS, RCA) and the IEC socket. The IN-8 2nd Wave measures 44.1 x 28.5 x 25.4cm and weighs 10.4kg.

Audibly improved

The three loudspeakers of the IN-8 2nd Wave are driven by three Class D amplifiers - hence its Class D Tri-Amped classification. The woofer is supplied with 60 watts and the coaxial speakers with 40 watts each. In total, this makes a total output of 140 watts. Compared to its predecessor, the IN-8 2nd Wave has less noise and distortion. The 2nd Wave also sounds more natural without losing precision. All in all, there is an audible improvement in sound quaity, which means that you’ll be able to hear subtle details in your mix with even greater precision.

A good choice for all

The coaxial arrangement of the midrange and tweeter speakers and the resulting advantages in terms of stereo imaging make the IN-8 2nd Wave from Kali Audio the perfect monitor for mixing applications and music production. In this respect, musicians, technicians, and producers of all kinds will be pleased with the absolutely fair purchase price, which makes the Kali speaker an inexpensive and absolutely worthwhile investment. The positive characteristics of these three-way monitors are not only advantageous for mixing music - all sound productions will benefit from them.

A real 3 way speaker, full active, with a coaxial midrange. I can't believe Kali managed to build one at this price. If have the space for a speaker of this size, it beats the virtually all others, hands down. Great tonal balance, nice output levels, friendly price. And this is irrespective of price! My other speaker cost 5 digits. Kali should consider releasing this one in white, with shorting rings, and a Bluetooth/Airplay receiver for home use. Winner winner chicken dinner!

Ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo !
Marcel Country 22.09.2021
Il diffusore si presenta con un design abbastanza minimale, è possibile utilizzare 3 tipologie di ingressi, dal professionale al consumer, infatti tramite il connettore rca è possibile collegare un semplice smartphone o qualsiasi dispositivo con uscita a basso livello. Essendo coassiale riproduce la parte medio-alta con una precisione paragonabile a monitor di livello superiore. Nel complesso la risposta in frequenza è abbastanza lineare, inoltre risponde bene nel registro grave. In conclusione il rapporto qualità prezzo è ottimo.

Super Boxen
TimTom 13.11.2021
Seit ich diese Boxen habe, sind meine Mixe deutlich besser geworden. Das drei Wege Prinzip ist also anscheinend richtig gut. Lautstärke reicht mir leicht. Sie können sehr laut. Nutze ich aber nicht. Und die Einstellungsmöglichkeiten af der Rückseite der Box sind leicht verständlich und gut. Die Bassanpassung funktioniert gut in meinem dürftig angepassten Raum. Ich höre gut was aus den Boxen kommt. Erst wenn ich sehr laut aufdrehe merke ich die Raummoden negativ.
Und für diesen Preis der Hammer.
