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!

I am a college student from China. As a student, I recommend this monitor speaker. The price is not high, the sound is good, and the price/performance ratio is very high. The sound almost shocked me in the price. The sound can be so stable and the price is relatively Yes, it is still three-way speakers and coaxial monitors. I like this design. I have used all black technology, and the sound is also very good. I have already recommended it to my friends.

q
too much hype imo

They are presented as the best BUDGET 3-way speakers because they literally have no competitors at this price point... It seems like a lot people these days are blown away by marketing strats & what's on paper rather than what they're actually hearing...
What you get is a cheap looking speaker with a cheap build quality that delivers decent highs, a clear midrange with a good stereo image and high spl... Now you may ask.. well what about the low-end? Exactly... In comparison to other 3-way speakers they just sound lifeless to me, you can barely feel the low-end energy even in bass heavy music. I'd only consider pairing them up with a good sub, but then again, why get 3-way speakers in the first place if you need a sub to hear what's happening in the lower range..

A month of using these monitors, I will tell you my opinion Decent professional-level monitors at a low cost! It should be noted right away that monitors do not perform best in small rooms such as a home studio in a room, but are designed for more serious prepared rooms. This is due to the presence of 8 "speakers and a rather impressive power - in total they are capable of delivering 140 W of pure sound. In terms of sound, the monitors produce a fairly even spectrum throughout the entire frequency range!
