3D IMAGING WAVEGUIDE: The 3-D Imaging Waveguide allows you to hear a 3-D soundstage from a stereo pair of speakers. LOW-NOISE PORT TUBE: The LP-8 has the clean, punchy bass of a front-ported speaker with very low noise from the port tube. HIGH OUTPUT: With 85 dB continuous output at 2.8 meters (roughly 6 feet,) and 20 dB of headroom, the LP-8 is plenty loud for almost every 1 or 2 person listening space. This includes home studios, editing bays, and most control rooms. BASS POWER: Bass on the LP-8 is delivered by a larger magnet and larger voice coil than any comparable speaker on the market. This gives you more accurate bass response that extends lower, so you can dial in exactly the low-end sound you need. BOUNDARY EQ: Kali Audio’s signature Boundary EQ settings help you achieve optimum sound in your recording environment while maintaining neutral sonic reproduction in a variety of settings. Transparent Sound The Lone Pine Series is designed to allow you to hear every detail that’s happening in your mix. This starts with an exceptionally accurate frequency response. Whatever is present on your mix is what you’ll hear in these monitors. Nothing is boosted or suppressed to cover flaws or try to sound more pleasing. With the LP-6 and LP-8, you can mix with more confidence, and you can also be assured that your mix will translate as best as possible to whatever systems your audience is using. *Measured at 8 meters and .4 Vrms and normalized to .4 Vrms/1 meter.

This gives you more accurate bass response that extends lower, so you can dial in exactly the low end sound you need. Easy to Use Boundary EQ Control A speaker’s given position in a space can drastically change it’s frequency response. A speaker placed against a wall or on a desk will sound very different than a speaker placed on a stand, even in a well-treated space. Hard surfaces like walls, desk tops, and recording consoles can change the low end frequency response of the monitor, and degrade the overall clarity of the sound. Happily, most of the common positions are fairly predictable and easily corrected. Kali’s team did our Boundary EQ tuning at The Village Studios in Los Angeles, and came up with boundary compensation EQ settings to help you get the optimum sound for where you need to put your speakers. Combined with the LF and HF trims, this will ensure that the speakers sound their best no matter what room you’re mixing in, or where the speakers are placed. Boundary EQ Settings Easy Connections The LP-6 and LP-8 both feature balanced XLR and TRS inputs, and an unbalanced RCA input. The RCA input can be set to -10 dBu sensitivity when you’re using consumer devices like a laptop or smartphone’s headphone jack. Class D Power The integrated Class D Power amp delivers clean, reliable power that’s optimized to this speaker. Both models use 40W for the 1” soft dome tweeter. The LP-6 uses 40W for the 6.5-Inch woofer, and the LP-8 uses 60W for the 8-Inch woofer.
