FOCAL

Description

The Focal Trio6 Be was designed to meet the standards of the most demanding engineers. Its extreme neutrality and precise stereophonic image resolve the finest sonic details, while its Class-G amplifiers deliver SPL levels with a frequency response that suits all musical styles.

When utilized to its full potential, the beryllium tweeter reaches up to 40kHz, and the 8" subwoofer extends low frequencies down to 35Hz. This offers engineers complete control of the audio signal.

The 8" W composite sandwich cone subwoofer is complemented by its large port, integrated into the front baffle, making it easy to position the monitor near the front wall without saturating the ports—and maintaining excellent low-frequency linearity. Its large front port guarantees consistent performance, regardless of SPL level. It also allows close-to-wall positioning without the “wall boost” effect, offering easy integration even in small rooms.

The 5" W composite sandwich cone woofer is installed in an isolated chamber within the cabinet, which prevents the sympathetic activation of its other speakers, while optimizing acoustic performance. Two front-facing ports provide bass reflex, enabling the woofer to perform identically in both two-way (90Hz–2.5kHz) and three-way (250Hz–2.5kHz) configurations.

The 1" pure beryllium inverted-dome tweeter provides numerous advantages, including wide dispersion, amazing frequency response linearity, quick dynamics and unrivaled impulse response.

As a two-way speaker, Trio6 Be employs only the 5" woofer and the tweeter, limiting frequencies to between 90Hz and 20kHz. This configuration provides the perfect compromise when checking the quality of the mix for playback systems with limited frequency response, such as TVs, PCs, cars and portable speaker systems. The frequency response curve of the two-way configuration is identical, though less extended, to its three-way curve, allowing for a perfect comparison that preserves the stereo image. Focusing on this critical middle-frequency range facilitates a good mix and enables the engineer to ensure that the levels are just right. A footswitch (not included) activates this configuration remotely from the listening position.
