Kali Audio LP6 v2 Active Monitor


Kali’s celebrated LP-6 studio monitors have just received a major upgrade. With improvements in the noise floor, output level, frequency response, and distortion, the 2nd Wave of Project Lone Pine are the best monitors you can buy for such an affordable price.

 

Transparency. Clarity. Accuracy.

Kali Audio's Lone Pine Series studio monitors are 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 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.

The 2nd Wave goes even further, utilizing a more robust DSP for an even flatter frequency response on the top end.

The LPs have always been praised for their accuracy, and Kali Audio are pleased to share that the 2nd Wave versions realize slight but noticeable improvements in that regard, particularly on the top end.

 

Power

Kali Audio defines a listening distance as the maximum distance at which the speakers can play continuously at 85 dB while maintaining 20 dB dynamic headroom.

This means that anywhere within that listening distance, you can listen for long periods of time at reference volume, and momentary peaks such as bass drops or explosion effects will come through clearly and with minimal distortion. The LP-6 has enough output for most 1-2 person setups, and the LP-8 can handle larger setups easily.

Bass on the LP-Series monitors is delivered by larger magnets and larger voice coils than any comparable speakers on the market. This gives you a more accurate bass response that extends lower, so you can dial in exactly the low-end sound you need. Bass response is not boosted or overhyped, but you can be sure that you’re hearing the bass that you have on the track.

Protective limiters prevent harmful voltage from ever reaching the drivers, so there is no risk of blowing these speakers. These have been updated for the 2nd Wave, allowing for a 3 dB higher output.

 

Ease of Use

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, desktops, 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 their 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. For the 2nd Wave, the boundary EQs have been updated for using the speakers on a desk with monitor stands.

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.

Easy connections, the LP-6 features balanced XLR and TRS inputs, and an unbalanced RCA input. The RCA input can be set to -10 dBu sensitivity when you’re using a laptop or smartphone’s headphone jack.

 

3-D Imaging Waveguide

The waveguide on the Lone Pine Series studio monitors ensures that the directivity of the loudspeaker is smooth throughout its frequency response. What’s more: it’s calibrated so that the sound power of the loudspeaker helps you to perceive sound accurately.

In practical terms, what this means is that you’re hearing spatial details in the recording that allow your brain to place elements of the recording in the space around you. This gives the speakers a more natural, lifelike feel that exposes more of the detail of the material that you’re working on. This level of detail makes it easier to make critical decisions, as well as making these monitors pleasurable to mix on and listen to in general.
