Focal SM9L Active Studio Monitor

Innovative 2 Monitoring speakers in one, with switchable 3-Way and 2-Way monitoring (Left)

One of the major SM9 innovations lies in the fact of offering 2 monitoring speakers in only one and unique cabinet. The SM9 is thus composed of 2 monitors: a 3 way monitor and a 2 way monitor.
