Product Description

Details

Focal’s Twin6 Be monitor will astonish you from the first moment you spend with it, partly because of its size/extended bass response (40Hz at -3dB). The two 6.5" “W” composite sandwich woofers mix neutrality in the midrange, fullness in the midbass register and bass control. One of the two works in large band (midrange – bass) while the other reproduces from 40 to 150Hz. Its compactness ensures simple integration in studios that need a near field monitor without any acoustic compromise. The user settings on the back of the Twin Be, combined with its compactness, make it easy to carry and to adjust according to the acoustics of each studio.

The Twin6 Be mixes the same components as Focal's highly advanced Solo6 Be design. As is the case with the Solo6 Be, users will be astounded by the Twin6 Be's lucidity and the extended frequency response. It extends from 40Hz up to 40kHz, above and beyond the range of human hearing. A particularly useful feature of the Twin6 Be, though, is that when you amalgamate its wonderfully neutral sound with its small size and user-adjustable rear settings, you've got a reference monitor that you can feasibly transport from studio to studio, tailor to a room's acoustics and dependably record/mix/master translatable tracks.

A feature for which Focal has gained notoriety is the inverted-dome tweeter - it's a key factor in the magic internals behind the Twin6 Be’s outstanding performance. The specific advantage of the inverted dome is that it augments the mechanical coupling between the voice coil and the dome. Because the voice coil is fixed at mid-height on the dome, it’s capable of evenly moving the Twin6 Be’s entire cone surface. This design delivers innate high efficiency, accuracy, and energy, all resulting in a tremendously detailed soundstage. Of course, the Twin6 Be capitalises on that to full effect by employing an aluminium/magnesium alloy for the tweeter material.

The Twin6 Be also capitalises on Focal's "W" composite sandwich cone. The inimitable characteristics of the cone permit optimisation of the frequency response curve, thanks to the total control of three key parameters: lightness, rigidity, and damping. The sound is breathtakingly transparent, has an excellent phase response and an extremely low distortion rate.
