The Kali Audio IN-5-C Studio Monitor is designed for ceiling and wall mounting applications. Acoustically identical to the IN-5, the IN-5-C includes a mounting adapter for use with third party or DIY mounting solutions.The Kali Audio IN-5 Studio Monitor features an incredibly accurate, lifelike stereo image. The strength of the stereo image, combined with the clarity of the speakers overall, make it extremely easy to build a complete, detailed picture of your mix. Every aspect of your mix is presented with clarity and accuracy, allowing you to dial in precisely the sound you want. Now you have the ability to mount your IN-5's to the ceiling or wall, ideal for Atmos or other immersive listening environments. Kali Audio does not include the mounting hardware, only the plate which attaches to the speaker. Kali Audio recommends using the (not yet available) Triad-Orbit SM-1 or SM-2 wall mounts or direct wall mounting.
Note: The Triad-Orbit SM-1 and SM-2 mounts are not available yet and the mount you see in the photos are just prototypes. These are expected to be announced sometime this Summer.
The IN-5 features a 5-inch woofer, a 4-inch mid-range driver, and a 1-inch soft dome tweeter. The mid-range driver and the tweeter are coincident, meaning that they share the same acoustic center. You might have heard the terms “coaxial” or “concentric” to describe this arrangement. Those terms are technically correct as well. Because of the coincident placement of the mid-range and tweeter, and the crossover of the woofer to the mid-range (280 Hz,) the IN-5 is an acoustic point source. This gives it an ideal directivity characteristic for a studio monitor. You will be able to hear a very lifelike stereo image, with details placed clearly and consistently. Off-axis lobing that is unavoidable in a 2-way system is virtually eliminated with the IN58.
Substantial work was done to optimize the mid-range driver not only for its own acoustic performance, but also for its role as the waveguide for the tweeter. The shape is very precise to allow for controlled directivity at mid range to tweeter crossover, ensuring accurate summing both on- and off-axis. Excursion on the midrange is limited to less than 1mm peak to peak, so that the oscillation of the mid-range does not have a negative effect on the tweeter. The first in Kali’s “2nd Wave” of loudspeakers, the IN-5 features a Class-D amp with a 12 dB reduction in self noise, an upgraded DSP section, and upgraded transducers for better reliability. On top of this, the IN-5 incorporates all of the benefits of Kali's Lone Pine series monitors. These include optimized woofers for powerful, clean bass, a front-firing port tube, and our boundary compensation EQs.
