Focal Pro Twin6 Be 6.5" Analog Monitoring Speaker (Red, Single)
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 mid-bass 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" 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.
• Beryllium inverted dome tweeter
The inverted dome tweeter is a hallmark of Focal.
As a result of more than twenty years of development into a tweeter
that could produce a high output, but without requiring high energy
input and without increasing directivity. The introduction of the
pure Beryllium dome, capable of covering 5 full octaves from 1,000
to 40,000Hz constitutes a new decisive advance regarding new
audio formats. This tweeter capacity to reproduce high frequencies
with unmatched speed and transparency. At first the pure Beryllium
tweeter was only available on the very high-end digital speakers of
the Focal Professional lines (SM8 & SM11), but is now featured on the
new SM6 series, allowing an unprecedented price/performance ratio.
• The “W” cone
Focal has been developing the technologies of composite sandwich
cones for more than 15 years. The "W" process (Glass/Foam/Glass),
used on the SM11, SM8 and SM6 lines, provides a true optimize a true optimization
of the frequency response by fine tuning of mass, rigidity and
damping parameters. The balance between these 3 fundamental
and often contradictory parameters is at the base of the outstanding
sound neutrality of our speakers.
• A custom designed amplification stage
Designing an amp to be integrated inside a speaker requires a very
different set of rules than for a traditional amp. Speaker size and
cooling concerns are often in contradiction with the high quality and
high power requirements of a sonically transparent speaker.
Our engineers used the BASH® technology to develop the bass/medium
amplification circuit for the SM6 professional line of speakers.
This was the only way to exploit the best of class AB style circuits
(for exceptional quality) with a class D type yield, which is crucial
when housing a 150W RMS circuit in such a small space (300W RMS
for the Twin 6 and 350W RMS for the Sub6). A pure class AB circuit
is sufficient to power the -less energy demanding- high frequency
tweeter, allowing for an extremely wide bandwidth and exceptional
