Studio Monitors Studio Monitors "Listen to your music, not to your speakers." > Our logistic department supplies worldwide distribution > R&D Center > 500m3 anechoic chamber > Two listening rooms > On site Corporate Headquarters > Home audio assembly unit > Drive unit and tweeter production area These few words embody the philosophy of Focal-JMLab, the French manufacturer of acoustic loudspeakers and transducers. From their very beginning on the drawing board in Research & Development at Focal, our professional monitors are designed to deliver one thing, at any cost: the absolute acoustic truth. > Supply store Founded in 1979, Focal is today comprised of two geographically separated facilities. The cabinet factory, in Bourbon-Lancy, ensures a custom-tailored production that favours manual labour for the most complex and precise work. The second facility is Focal’s headquarters which are based in Saint-Etienne. It combines the R&D laboratory, production and administrative departments on a 12 500m2 site, where more than two hundred people work on a common goal: the absolute finest sound. > Focal-JMlab site map in Saint-Etienne (France), 1 2 500m2, 200 people 700 000 drivers per year Focal established itself as an innovation leader in the pursuit of a unique principle: total control of development and production. This enables the company to constantly progress, while being sure there’s perfect control during the manufacturing process. Focal has registered many patents, such as the “W” composite sandwich cone or the pure Beryllium inverted dome tweeter. These exclusive technologies have brought major progress to the professional audio world in terms of neutrality, definition and precision in reproduced sound. It’s fundamental for a sound engineer to entirely trust what he or she hears, either in music production, postproduction or broadcast. Our products are designed from the start to be professional tools that exactly reproduce the sound signal, without improving or damaging it. Focal Professional monitors guarantee the reproduction of all the micro-detail, the precise staging of instruments and voices, with no coloration or distortion. These basic elements allow the engineer to directly access the source equipment and electronics and ensure optimum transfer quality onto public audio equipment. > From Jacques Mahul, CEO and founder of Focal-JMlab, to the ICP Studio of Brussels, we have a common goal: the absolute acoustic truth. > Subwoofer of the SM11-S 4 5 They have chosen ”Forget all about my gear and toys, the most critical element in my studio is my loudspeaker... To me, there’s no better nearfield loudspeaker than the Solo6 Be, whatever the prices of other monitors.„ Focal Professional… David Kutch (Alicia Keys, Natasha Bedingfield, Al Green Erykah Badu, Estelle, Outkast and many more...) ”The SM-11 is the first speaker that doesn´t colour the sound at all. I can hear every 1/2dB of equalization over the whole frequency spectra in the SM-11, it´s simply my most valuable tool. „ Dragan Tanaskovic (E.S.T, In Flames, Anders Persson trio, ...) Studio Bohus Sound (www.bohussound.com) ”I needed self-powered monitors and wanted a set that didn’t require a subwoofer, a monitor that had a natural top to bottom, but no hyped frequencies. I definitely get enough low end with the Focals – the balance with the Focal Professional monitors is perfect! With the Focal Professional monitors you can hear everything. „ Steve Ouimette (“Guitar Hero ®”) http://www.steveouimette.com http://hub.guitarhero.com http://www.myspace.com/steveouimette ”Focal Professional speakers have the rare quality of being very musical sounding, while maintaining clarity and detail. Not a very easy feat to pull off. While listening to my favorite recordings on a pair of Solo6 Be’s I heard instruments and parts that I had not heard before. Wow. Well done, Focal, well done. The music sounds very real, in the room. It doesn’t seem like you’re listening out of speakers, the music fills the room. You can imagine a band in front of you. It doesn’t seem like there are speakers between you and what you’re listening to. Very few speakers do that. „ Ian Boxill (Prince, 2 Pac, Quincy Jones, …) ”The Twin6 Be monitors are the best that I’ve used in terms of studio-to-consumer listening translation. They really translate: what I hear in the studio is what the outside world hears, in my experience. The Twin6 Be is the first powered monitor that I’ve heard that you don’t have to be afraid of hearing in the mid-range. You get the mids really kicking and it’s fine. Listening back to mixes I’ve done on the NS10s through the Focal Professional, it kind of scares me because I hear top-end distortion that I wasn’t hearing in the NS10s, I was so used to using them, I thought I knew them. With the Focal Professional there wasn’t a learning curve, it actually spooked me at first. „ Jeff Juliano (James Blunt, John Butler, …) http://www.myspace.com/jeffjuliano 6 7 Exclusive technologies Focal Professional monitors reveal the slightest detail and ensure a better transfer quality than other monitors. How do they achieve this? > Interferometry analysis Inverted dome tweeter The inverted dome tweeter - a Focal hallmark - is perhaps the perfect transducer. This design permits very high-efficiency, precision and energy. The particular advantage of the inverted dome tweeter is the optimization of the mechanical coupling between the voice coil and the dome. The voice coil is fixed at mid-height on the dome and uniformly moves the cone entire surface. The positive dome is only joined at its edge, causing it to be inactive beyond 16kHz for a flexible surface. The inverted dome directly radiates into the air, with maximum efficiency, which is translated by an extremely precise soundstage. The dome’s response curve is clearly more linear than that of any positive dome. It provides better space dispersion and very low directivity, contrary to ribbon tweeters. “W” composite sandwich cone The “W” composite sandwich cone permits total optimization of the frequency response curve, thanks to the total control of three key parameters: lightness, rigidity and damping. At Focal, the letter “W” means Glass/ Glass, as it usually has two sheets of woven glass tissue that are “sandwiched” onto the structural foam core. The glass tissue benefits from the incredibly fine weaving of very long fibres. This choice offers a mass and a size clearly inferior to those in Aramid fibers or other Kevlar® fabrics, which generate coloration in the midrange. It’s also important to note that the molecular bond between the resin and the glass is greater than that obtained with Aramid fibres. The cone structure is more homogeneous and its behavior in flex is much more superior. The inverted dome tweeter offers unequalled dynamics, enabling sound engineers to very precisely control compression. The image precision (height, width and depth) is outstanding and makes the positioning of each element very easy, as well as allows one to exactly assess the reverb tails. 1 > Classic dome 2 > Inverted dome These unique characteristics of lightness and rigidity provide control of the signal transmission speed inside the material. Adjusting the thickness of the structural foam allows a very precise control of the “W” cone’s damping. The variation of the number of glass fibre sheets and the thickness of the central foam can easily optimize the cone’s behaviour according to the desired frequency range. When listening, the sound of the “W” cone is entirely transparent, has an excellent phase response and has a very low distortion rate (rigidity 20 times higher than Kevlar® or Aramid fibre). Beryllium Due to its incredible rigidity, Beryllium represents the ultimate material for a tweeter dome. Focal, after two years of research and development, produced a world first: a pure Beryllium inverted dome, able to cover more than five octaves (1000Hz - 40kHz). You may ask yourself why do we strive for an extended response at 40kHz, if the human ear can only hear up to 20kHz? If you can extend frequency response, you will improve the perception of transients and other micro details. > Comparison of Beryllium with Titanium and Aluminum. Beryllium is the lightest, the most resistant and has the highest sound speed. 8 As well, the linearity of the speaker’s response curve is mainly a function of three opposite parameters: lightness, rigidity and damping. To this day, only one material permits a joining of these parameters: Beryllium. For domes with identical masses, Beryllium is seven times more rigid than Titanium or Aluminum, the latter two well known for their rigidity. This results in a sound wave propagation three times faster than Titanium and two and a half times faster than Aluminum. In the end, the linearity of the frequency response curve, the acoustic transparency and the impulse response of the Beryllium tweeter are maximized and offer near-perfect sound. > "W" composite sandwich cone mounting > "W" composite sandwich cone 9 > SM11-R > SM11-C SM11 line The SM11 line integrates some of the greatest Focal innovations. The pure Beryllium inverted dome TBU tweeter and the “W” composite sandwich cone woofers and subwoofers ensure a signal-sound restitution without compromise. The very high-quality 24 bits/96kHz DSP converts the signal with outstanding transparency. It offers the possibility to work with these tools in digital mode via the AES input, or in analog version thanks to dedicated XLR connectors. The supplied Focal Manager software permits optimum acoustic integration of the system, according to the studio characteristics and the monitor positioning. Perfect transparency, dynamics, neutrality, details and sound image are Focal Professional reference key points, daily used in the most famous studios. SM11-L / SM11-R / SM11-C The SM11-L / SM11-R / SM11-C monitors are equipped with an asymmetrical cabinet design, favouring a fantastic image precision in a stereo or multichannel configuration. The very extended frequency response (34Hz-40kHz at -3dB) guarantees perfect control of the entire audio signal. This feature is essential to the optimization of the mixes dedicated to supports like SACD or any other project where perfection is essential. The 1" pure Beryllium TBU tweeter achieves an unmatchable detail level and delivers great precision, width and depth to the sound image. The 6.5" “W” composite sandwich midrange offers unmatched neutrality and transparency. The tweeter-woofer coupling guarantees a voicing that will immediately reveal the slightest anomalies. The 11" woofer and the passive radiator reproduce the bass register with an incredible degree of control, thanks to the absence of a port. The bottom of the audio spectrum is then totally revealed, without a subwoofer. A total SPL of 118dB allows unprecedented headroom for recording, mixing and mastering in almost any situation, without risk of compression. SM11-S The SM11-S subwoofer is equipped with a 15" (40cm) speaker able to reproduce a signal up to 20Hz. Its large back port frees it from any audible distortions as well as dynamic compression. Sound engineers often have difficulties to hear all information in the sub-bass, which they can nevertheless very precisely measure, hence the reason for this unrivalled subwoofer. > SM11-S 10 11 SM6 line Solo6 Be The SM6 line is the reference analog series from Focal Professional. It was created for studios in search of monitors that reveal all information in the audio spectrum, without any masking effect. It integrates the best of Focal technologies (“W” composite sandwich cone, pure Beryllium inverted dome tweeter) and offers an unprecedented performance/cost ratio. The Solo6 Be and Twin6 Be monitors stand out in this segment due to their unparalleled transparency, degree of definition and precise sound image. The Solo6 Be and Twin6 Be convey a midbass and bass, which are always controlled for extremely precise measurement of compression. These monitors have been enthusiastically reviewed and the Twin6 Be has been awarded “Best Monitor” in all price categories by the magazine Future Music. 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 - 40kHz (+/- 2dB)). The 6.5" (16,5cm) “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. 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" (16,5cm) 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. Sub6 The Sub6 is a large volume cabinet design, equipped with an 11" (27cm) 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. > Twin6 Be > Solo6 Be 12 13 Performance SM11 L-R SM11 C SM11 S Performance Solo6 Be Twin6 Be Sub6 40Hz - 40kHz

CMS Bes t S tu dio Mon for 100 itor 200 pr o aud 9 io maga zines. Technologies > CMS 50 Aluminum/Magnesium inverted dome tweeter > CMS SUB Magnesium possesses great damping qualities, Aluminum great rigidity and the two in alloy can greatly reduce distortion. This unique marriage of metals offers several advantages. The impulse response is incredibly rapid and yet benefits from a very short settlement time and excellent damping. This enables the tweeter to extend its frequency response beyond 28kHz (-3dB)… This configuration produces a precise, analytical sound and an extremely deep soundstage. The frequency response curve linearity is also remarkable in that it ensures perfect neutrality. When listening, the treble frequencies are dynamic and detailed. The Aluminum/Magnesium inverted dome tweeter then combines perfectly with the Polyglass woofer in a perfect tone synergy. CMS line Polyglass Polyglass technology, exclusive to Focal, consists in applying molten glass microballs on a cellulose pulp cone. This process combines an excellent paper damping with glass rigidity. The rigidity index exceeds even that of a single skin Kevlar® and is almost ten times superior to one of polypropylene. The mass/rigidity/damping ratio adjustment results in outstanding linearity of the frequency response curve, all from the inherent design of the cone. This innovation also greatly increases definition in the midrange. > Polyglass cone 16 The CMS line is the latest arrival in the Focal Professional range and is particularly dedicated to post-production studios, small listening rooms, radio studios and home studios. The CMS 40, CMS 50, CMS 65 and CMS SUB integrate many Focal hallmarks, such as the Aluminum/Magnesium inverted dome tweeter, the Polyglass cone woofer, as well as neutrality, dynamics, detail and soundstage precision. They also offer numerous control settings to meet the acoustic constraints of small sound rooms. The compact design and the use of a large front port allow for a wall installation from 24" (60cm)without any loss of control in the bass register. Accessories are supplied to ensure the most efficient acoustic integration so that the listener will benefit from 100% of the performance of the CMS. Balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA) inputs are electronically treated to compensate the 6dB difference between these two connections. The compensation ensures an identical sound level for coherent recordings, whatever the location and the equipment used. 17 > CMS 40 CMS 40 The CMS 40 is the most compact monitor of the Focal Professional range. Its size/extended bass frequency ratio ensures excellent versatility. This monitor guarantees ultra-realistic voicing, whilst offering optimum acoustic integration in a small room. 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. CMS 50 The design of the CMS 50 permits a listening position from 19" (50cm), while still keeping the possibility to place the monitors at a great distance from one another without damaging the soundstage. The 5” (13cm) mid-bass 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 tails and other effects, which are normally very difficult to assess. 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. CMS SUB The CMS SUB is equipped with a 11" (27cm) Polyglass cone subwoofer with a large front laminar port. This design guarantees perfect acoustical integration even into the smallest recording studios. The 11" 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 an amplifier headroom, making sure that you can hear the slightest changes to compression settings.
