Focal SM9, Solo6 Be, Twin 6Be, Sub 6 & CMS Sub - all in stock!
The Solo6 Be is an active, two-way, professional nearfield monitor speaker. The Focal Solo6 is bi-amped, with 150 watts for the woofer and 100 watts for the tweeter. It has a 6.5" “W” cone sandwich composite woofer, with a large section laminar bass port and a Focal pure Beryllium inverted dome tweeter.
The Solo6 Be is designed for near field monitoring and should be placed at a distance between three feet and ten feet from the engineer.
The Focal Solo6 BE can be placed on top of the mixer's meter bridge or on speaker stands. The Focal Solo6 Be monitors can be placed vertically or horizontally. It is recommended that the tweeter is at the same height as the listener’s ears.

The Twin6 Be is an active, three way, professional nearfield/midfield studio monitor. It has three built-in amplifiers: two 150 watt amps and one 100 watt amp for the tweeter. The Focal Twin6 Be has two 6.5" “W” cone sandwich composite woofers, loaded by two large section laminar bass ports and a Focal pure Beryllium inverted dome tweeter. Both 6.5” drivers handle low frequencies but only one of the two (user selectable) contains lo-mid frequencies.
Focal Sub6 Subwoofer
The Sub6 is an active subwoofer (350 watts – BASH technology) for professional monitoring sytems. It has a 11" Focal woofer with a “W” sandwich composite cone loaded by a large section laminar port. The Sub6 subwoofer is an ideal match with a pair of Solo6 Be monitors or five Solo6 Be monitors in a 5.1 set-up.
It can also be used both as LFE channel in a home theater surround system or as a subwoofer in a stereo system.
The Focal Sub6 has a stereo high pass filter ( selectable, 75 or 100Hz) for the left and right satellites, low pass filter (adjustable) with mono summation, phase inverter, phase fine tuning, mute switch, 2.1 bypass with a footswitch for remote control (not included).
Focal SMS8 Monitor
The Focal SMS8 is a high-quality studio monitor that incorporates a reversed Beryllium dome tweeter, a 8" woofer and a custom-designed passive radiator to extend the bass response. The tweeter is a result of more than twenty years of development to produce a high-efficiency, high output device without increasing directivity.
The Focal SM8 is bi-amplified (200 watts driving the woofer, 100 watts driving the tweeter). The SMS8 monitor uses low distortion class “D” power stages for the woofer amp, dramatically lowering heat at high power, while a wide bandwidth class AB amp is used for the tweeter.
The Focal Focus Ring is an innovative and patented magnetic structure provides extremely strong flux density (2T) with the highest thermal stability achievable.
The "W" cone: For more than 15 years the composite cone sandwich technology is a Focal exclusivity. The "W" process - first initiated in 1995 with the Focal Grande Utopia - now provides a true optimisation of the frequency response by fine tuning of mass, rigidity and damping parameters.
Passive radiator: In order to reproduce the lowest frequency range within a very small footprint, the SM8 is equipped with a no compromise, custom designed "W" passive radiator.
Advanced Digital Technologies: 24 Bit 96kHz converters. In addition to a direct digital input, the SM8 uses the latest high quality chipsets with 24 Bit 96kHz A/D and D/A conversion.
The combination of powerful DSP devices and carefully designed algorithms allows multiple and very precise equalisation. The Focal SM8 may be placed vertically or horizontally.
Due to its internal digital processing, the SM8 can use FIR (Finite Impulse Response) filters which have the property of allowing both very high selectivity and perfectly linear response: the filters between the LF and HF sections have slopes reaching 200 dB/octave! Due to the drastic reduction of acoustic interaction between drivers, landscape and portrait orientation are virtually equivalent in terms of performance.
