Beryllium

EXCLUSIVE TECHNOLOGYBERYLLIUM


The SM9 monitoring loudspeaker is packed with Focal Professional technologies and innovations. The pure Beryllium inverted dome tweeter offers a perfectly linear frequency response and extremely precise and detailed treble. The 6.5-inch ‘W’ composite sandwich cone woofer offers perfect neutrality thanks to the optimised control of rigidity, lightness and damping. The 8-inch speaker driver, combined with a ‘W’-shaped passive radiator, enables the perfectly precise reproduction of the deep bass register. 

Sound with great precision

FAITHFUL MONITORING LOUDSPEAKERS


Another key point: the SM9 is equipped with a class AB amplifier (100 + 100 + 400W RMS) with very low harmonic distortion, which along with the high frequency response curve, ensure great precision and faithful dynamics of low-level audio signals.

TWO MONITEURS IN ONE


One of the SM9’s major innovations and its key strength lies in the combination of two monitoring loudspeakers in one cabinet. This 3-way monitor enables flawless control of the entire audio spectrum (30Hz-40kHz). The 2-way monitor, with a frequency response ranging from 90Hz to 20kHz, gives you the ability to check the mix transfer quality on devices with a limited bass response (TV, computer, car…)

Focal SM9

This monitoring speaker establishes itself as a reference thanks to the precision of the stereo image, its capacity to reproduce each of the micro details of the audio signal , as well as unconditional respect of the original dynamics. 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.

  • a 3-way monitor (Beryllium tweeter + 6.5" “W” woofer + 8" “W” subwoofer + 11" passive radiator). This monitor offers a frequency response from 30Hz to 40kHz for total control of the audio signal permitting extremely precise work.
  • A 2-way monitor (Beryllium tweeter + 6.5” “W” woofer). This monitor offers a frequency response from 90Hz to 40kHz, permitting to check the mix transfer quality on systems with limited frequency response in the bass frequencies for example TV sets, computers, cars, iPod docks or any multimedia system. This monitor also permits to check the midrange register, very hard to equalize and balance in terms of sound level compared to the other information contained in the audio signal. The activation of this monitor is made by setting off the FOCUS mode on the side panel. Exclusive acoustic technologies.
