The new Kali Audio LP-8 monitor speakers are great for DJ’s who like to practice their craft at home or for producers who need an affordable monitor with great sound quality.

The LP-8 speakers have a lightweight MDF construction, an 8-inch woofer for the lows/mids, and a 1-inch tweeter for the highs. The LP-8 has two internal D-class amplifiers to power the speaker. The LP-8 also has three different input options including RCA, TRS, and XLR to easily work with many different devices and setups.

The LP-8 has a unique set of dip-switches on the rear panel that allows the users to sculpt the sound depending on the environment and orientation that the speakers are set up in.

  • XLR, TRS, and RCA inputs
