Kali Audio LP-6W V2 Project Lone Pine Studio Monitor - White.
Styled in white, the Kali LP-6 V2 is a studio monitor (single monitor) that puts the ability to achieve excellent mixes within anyone's grasp. This monitor helps content creators and professionals deliver exceptional mixes by providing an advanced waveguide for 3D imaging, clear sound reproduction throughout the frequency range, low-noise performance, and sensitivity that reaches levels necessary for creating punchy and fully realized products.
This is the second generation of the Lone Pine series, delivering lower-noise, higher sensitivity, a smoother high-end, and a consistently accurate low-end than the original monitor. Furthermore, the Boundary EQ settings have all been updated based on user-feedback, delivering tuning options more tailored for real-world scenarios.
The 3-D Imaging Waveguide allows you to hear a 3-D soundstage from a stereo pair of speakers, so you will have to purchase an additional monitor so you have two to use the Waveguide. By matching the shape of the waveguide to the interactions of the HF and LF drivers, this waveguide produces a stereo image that is wider, taller, and deeper than the space where the speakers are placed.
The LP-6 accomplishes this by ensuring that the speaker's reflected sound matches its direct sound. Every time you hear a loudspeaker, you're hearing both the direct sound from the speaker, and reflections from the speaker's signal bouncing off of objects in the room. When those reflections are congruent with the direct sound from the speaker, listeners perceive a better sound overall, and are able to make out very subtle details like where microphones are placed in a room. When done well, the stereo image will sound three-dimensional.
All of this should give you a high degree of confidence in your mix. It allows you to mix faster, and produce better mixes overall.
The voice coil on the LP-6 allows the speaker to have very high excursion, resulting in clearer sound with lower harmonic distortion, and a high degree of detail.
On most port tubes, air leaves at different speeds from different points of the opening, creating noisy turbulence. This turbulence can be heard as chuffing, or an audible air sound coming from the monitor. This sound will add to the noise floor and obscure the details of the low end.
The port tube on the LP-6 was designed to ensure that all of the air leaves the port tube at the same velocity. This helps add to the low-end response of the speaker, while keeping the bass clean, tight, and devoid of extra noise.
The LP-6 is capable of 85 dB continuous output, with 20 dB of dynamic headroom from as far as 2.2m. This makes it an excellent choice as a main, side surround, or overhead speaker in most small-to-medium-sized mixing rooms.
Bass on the LP-6 is delivered by a magnet and voice coil larger than much of the competition at comparable price points. This gives you more accurate bass response that extends lower, so you can dial in exactly the low-end sound you need. Nothing is over-represented, and the bass that is present on your track will come through with clarity and punch.
Kali's team came up with boundary compensation EQ settings at the Village Recorder in Los Angeles to help you get the optimum sound for where you need to put your speakers. Combined with the LF and HF trims, these boundary settings will ensure that the speakers sound their best no matter what room you're mixing in.
