Focal Solo6Be (Single) 40th Anniversary Studio Monitor
We wanted to share and celebrate our 40th anniversary with music professionals, so we developed Solo6 Be 40th! We have dressed up our iconic active monitor, the Made in France Solo6 Be, in a unique and elegant black finish and stamped it as a special ‘40 year’ edition by Focal.
AN ELEGANT AND TIMELESS LOOK
Solo6 Be is a 2-way monitor which, from the moment it was launched, surprised users with its size/extended frequency response in the bass ratio, the woofer’s accumulation of neutrality in the mid-range, the fullness of the mid-bass and its bass control. It provides transparency and an unmatched degree of definition and precision of the stereo image for this price category: that is why we chose to showcase this model to celebrate our anniversary. How? By dressing it in a black leather-effect coating to give it a discreet, distinguished and timeless look. Stamped as a ‘40 year’ special edition, this monitor, made in our workshops in France, embodies the passion we share with music creators.
Behind this new ‘finish’ lies our Beryllium inverted dome tweeter, capable of reproducing high frequencies with an unrivalled degree of purity and transparency, and a bass/mid driver composed of our ‘W’ composite sandwich cone. This cone allows us to optimise the response from as early as the design phase and gives the loudspeaker incredible sound neutrality. Finally, the bass/mid power stage in Solo6 Be 40th is fine-tuned using BASH® technology, which delivers class AB sound quality combined with the efficiency of class D amplifiers.
The Solo6 Be is an active, 2 way, professional nearfield speaker (2 built-in amplifiers – 150 + 100W RMS), comprised of a 6.5 inch (16.5cm) “W” cone sandwich composite driver, loaded by a large section laminar bass port and a Focal inverted dome pure Beryllium tweeter
The Solo6 Be and Twin6 Be are designed for near field monitoring and should be placed at a distance between 1 and 3 metres from the listener, pointing towards the listening position.
They can be sitting on the console top or placed on appropriate stands. In any way it is recommended that the tweeter is at a height from the floor approximately equivalent to that of the listener’s ears. If required it can make sense to place the speakers upside down so that the previous rule is better fulfilled.
The Solo6 Be could be used vertically or horizontally depending on the environment, preferably pointing towards the listener.
