Accurate and detailed sound image

The CMS line is particularly destined for post-production studios, small listening rooms, radio studios and home studios. These monitor loudspeakers all feature Focal technologies, such as the aluminium/magnesium inverted dome tweeter and the Polyglass cone woofer; guaranteeing neutrality, dynamics, detail and precision of the sound image.

Perfectly adapted for small monitoring rooms

To meet all your monitoring needs, Focal offers four models: CMS 40, CMS 50, CMS 65 and CMS SUB. All these CMS monitoring loudspeakers, through their compact design and their large front laminar port, can be installed near a wall without the risk of exaggeration or loss of control of the bass register. They have been perfectly conceived so that they can be adapted to suit the acoustic constraints of small monitoring rooms thanks to the various settings.

Efficient acoustical integration

Thanks to the accessories supplied, acoustical integration is even more efficient, so you can take full advantage of your monitors’ performance. Thanks to the electronic processing, the 6dB difference observed between the XLR and RCA inputs has been fully compensated for. This gives you a listening level which is always identical for consistent recordings, in all types of environment, and whatever peripheral equipment you use.

  • CMS 65

    The reference standard of the CMS line, the CMS 65 received the 2008 Excellence Award from Pro Audio Review magazine due to its amazing size/price/performance ratio. Its extended response at 45Hz (-3dB) allows installation without a subwoofer. CMS 65 monitors are characterized by treble definition, midrange transparency and adjustable control of the midbass and bass registers. The tonal balance is extremely stable, even at very loud volumes, ensuring accurate reproduction when mixing and mastering. ProAudio Review: Excellence 2008 award.

  • CMS 50

    The CMS 50 is the most compact monitoring loudspeaker of all the Focal Professional range. Its design permits listening from 50cm away, while still keeping the possibility of the monitors at a great distance from one another without damaging the soundstage. The 5” mid-woofer reaches down to 55Hz, while offering a controlled bass and a totally linear midrange. The midrange register of the CMS 50 has unequalled neutrality in its price range. The Al-Mg inverted dome tweeter offers outstanding dynamics and a degree of definition in the treble that allow precise measurement of reverb and other effects which are normally very difficult to assess.

Its design permits a listening position from 16" (40cm), even in the least advantageous locations (ex. proximity to reverberating surfaces). The CMS 40 is the perfect tool for post-production and home studios. And even in the biggest and best studios, it proves to be an excellent second monitoring system, allowing one to quickly check how the mix translates onto smaller speakers.

    The 11" Polyglass® cone woofer used in the CMS SUB is both very light and extremely rigid for a neutral and distortion-free response. This incredible weight-to-rigidity ratio is obtained by applying a thin layer of hollow glass spheres on top of a cellulose-based cone. The high excursion capabilities of the CMS SUB woofer offer tight and controlled bass, able to reproduce even the most minute detail. The CMS SUB woofer was designed to be extremely efficient, to make the most out of amplifier headroom, making sure that you can hear the slightest changes to compression settings.
