The SM6 range

The SM6 line of monitoring loudspeakers has been designed for recording studios looking for monitors capable of revealing every detail of the entire audio spectrum without any masking effect. Four models are available: the Trio6 Be double monitoring loudspeaker, the versatile Twin6 Be, the ultra-compact Solo6 Be and the Sub6 monitoring subwoofer.

High-tech and high precision

These four professional analogue monitoring loudspeakers benefit from the best of Focal’s technological innovations. The result? A stereo image offering unprecedented neutrality, clarity and precision in this price category. The pure beryllium inverted dome tweeter covers 5 octaves from 1000Hz to 40 kHz, the best acoustic transparency and fastest impulse response in the world. As concerns the woofers’ W composite sandwich cone, they offer a perfect balance of rigidity, lightness and damping to provide exceptional neutrality.

The solution to all your monitoring needs

The Trio6 Be double monitoring speaker features the exclusive Focus technology, ensuring reliability and saving time for sound engineers by enabling them to compare their mixes focusing on the same acoustic basis, minus the extreme frequencies. The rotating baffle for the midrange-treble, the dual-ported bass reflex and the various settings available ensure excellent integration into even the most complex of work environments. When it comes to frequency response, the Solo6 Be monitoring speaker offers the best size/range ratio in its category. The Twin6 Be monitoring speaker, the best seller of Focal’s Professional range, is the most versatile tool in the SM6 range and perfectly meets the requirements for recording, mixing and mastering, without having to resort to a second pair of monitors. As to the Sub6, it features an 11'' subwoofer and guarantees excellent linearity whatever the SPL level you require.

  • Trio6 Be

    Two monitors in one!

    Essentially, the Trio6 Be is a three-way speaker with a 1” tweeter, a 5” woofer, and an 8” subwoofer. Yet, switching to FOCUS mode reconfigures Trio6 Be in two-way monitor.

    The Trio6 Be was designed to meet the standards of the most demanding engineers. This dual monitor is the new reference in its price range owing to its extreme neutrality, its precise stereophonic imaging, and its ability to resolve the most minute sonic details, while its Class G amplifiers deliver SPL levels to suit all musical styles.

  • Twin6 Be

    The Twin6 Be is the best seller of the Focal Professional range and the most versatile work tool of the SM6 line. It represents the only necessary solution for recording, mixing and mastering. The image precision, treble definition as well as midrange neutrality are at the heart of its reputation. The excellent articulation of the bass and midbass registers, even at very high sound levels, makes it an unavoidable reference for engineers who require absolute transparency.

    Furthermore, the design of the Twin6 Be permits a high SPL while at the same time offering a stable tonal balance. One of the two 6.5" woofers works in large band (midrange – bass) whereas the other reproduces from 40 to 150Hz. This creates a bass that preserves all the signal dynamics, without any masking effect in the midrange, thereby keeping all its neutrality and transparency. Additional control of the bass register is accomplished by fine-tuning on the control plate on the back of the Twin6 Be in order to obtain a perfect mirror configuration with its mate.

    The Twin6 Be can be installed vertically or horizontally to respond to the space requirements of each studio.

  • Solo6 Be

    The Solo6 Be monitor will surprise you in the very first minutes you spend with it, partly due to its size/extended bass response (40Hz at -3dB). The 6.5" “W” composite sandwich mid-woofer combines neutrality in the midrange, fullness in the midbass register and bass control. Its compactness and the choice of a large front laminar port guarantee easy integration in studios that need a near field monitor without any acoustic compromise. The user settings on the back of the Solo6 Be, combined with its compactness, make it easy to carry and to adjust according to the acoustics of each studio.

  • Sub6

    The Sub6 is a large volume cabinet design, equipped with an 11" woofer and a rear laminar port. This configuration guarantees bass linearity whatever the intended SPL. The control board is extremely versatile, with connectivity which allows a 2.1, 2.2 and multichannel use via the L/R inputs and outputs and the LFE. The numerous settings such as the high-pass crossover dedicated to monitors, the adjustable phase and level control provide optimum coupling with the Solo6 Be and the Twin6 Be monitors. And finally, a small, but important point: the footswitch input. It enables one to connect a pedal to deactivate the subwoofer and the high-pass crossovers on the outputs that supply the monitors. This simplifies and greatly improves control during the different stages in monitoring.
