Can I listen music on it from 1.5 or 2 meters? I mean not in common terms like "you can listen even on a smartphone".
- Customer Service"At a 9ft listening distance the IN-8s will work perfectly. They have a powerful enough bass extension (their response goes down to 39Hz) that they can produce substantial low frequency effect (LFE) for movies without the need of a subwoofer. They also have a high transient response, which allows for near-perfect reproduction of delicate transients created by pianos, soft vocals, etc.
If you like listening to music with a wide dynamic range, such a Jazz, the IN-8s will really shine in your space.
Kali's spec seems to align with THX which defines studio reference level as 85 dB SPL with 20 dB of headroom. Kali merely adds that the IN-8 v2 will achieve this at up to 3.5 meters (11.5 feet). This should satisfy average home theater users. I get now that your warning about the IN-8 v2 limiter kicking in is aimed at those who want to listen above THX studio reference level or beyond 11.5 feet.
We almost never run sales.
We introduced the LP-8 at $249 and lowered the price to $199 after a time. The LP-6 has always been $149 and I can't recall ever having offered a discount as part of a promotion.If I recall correctly Kali first introduced the LP-6 at $200 and later permanently lowered the price to $150. Whereas some companies sell some product at full pricing and some at sales pricing Kali seems to have chosen a permanent pricing structure that's more like the sales pricing others employ. Active 6" monitors that measure as well as the LP-6 are normally not available for $150.
When can we expect to be able to buy the IN-8 v2 in Europe?We're specifically concerned about Dolby's spec, which say that the speaker needs to be able to do 85+20 at the listening position. The listening distance spec that we publish is to tell anyone building a room whether the speakers will work at their working distances for that spec.

I think you can already? Our EU distributors have ordered them, but looking at (for example) Thomann, it's not clear what they'd ship you is a a V1 or V2. Let me do some poking for you...
Thomann has separate skus for first and second wave in8s. Btw do we expect a 2nd wave ws12 as well?
