Focal Solo6 6.5-inch Powered Studio Monitor
Improving on the popular SM6 range of studio monitors, the Focal ST6 Series delivers iconic Focal sound and style with a complete ground-up redesign featuring upgraded performance and new features. Driven by Focal’s latest advances in transducer and acoustic design, the new range is more detailed, dynamic and transparent than ever. With ultra-linear frequency response from 45 Hz to 40 kHz, superb output level and imperceptibly low distortion, the high-performance Focal Solo6 will impress even the most discerning ears with world-class accuracy, depth and fidelity. Plus, handy EQ controls and a unique Focus mode allow you to tailor the sound to your mixing environment.
The 1.5-inch beryllium inverted dome tweeter features a unique design which provides excellent linearity and dynamic range. Beryllium’s low density and high rigidity make it an ideal material for tweeters, as it can react quickly to impulses without distorting. Focal has also optimized the tweeter baffle for lower directionality and better dispersion control, ensuring a generous sweet spot in your studio.
The 6.5-inch woofer features Focal’s proprietary “W-cone” composite sandwich construction, which yields a neutral sound with no perceptible distortion. Two layers of woven glass fiber enclose a structural foam core, making the cone 20 times more rigid than Kevlar while drastically reducing weight and providing ideal damping characteristics.
The Solo6 also includes a “Focus mode” which bypasses the tweeter and sends a full-range signal to just the woofer for a midrange-forward sound that helps you make sure your mixes still sound smooth on less-than-ideal playback systems. Additional controls on the rear panel allow you to adjust the overall sensitivity, set the automatic standby mode to save power, and adjust frequency response using high and low shelves as well as a mid-frequency EQ to tailor the response to your mixing environment. Finally, mounting points let you hang the speakers from your walls or ceiling for surround sound and Atmos/immersive audio configurations.
