The exceptional accuracy of the Solo6 Be monitor will surprise you in the very first minutes you spend with it. Partly due to its size/extended bass response (40Hz at -3dB) plus the 6.5" “W” composite sandwich mid-woofer combines neutrality in the midrange, fullness in the midbass register and bass control.
Its compactness and the choice of a large front laminar port guarantee easy integration in studios that need a near field monitor without any acoustic compromise. The user settings on the back of the Solo6 Be, combined with its compactness, make it easy to carry and to adjust according to the acoustics 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 optimiza 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
