Focal Shape 50 Compact Powered Studio Monitor - Single

Versatile monitoring loudspeaker par excellence featuring low directivity tweeter for a flexible listening position

Product Description

Focal continues to lead the way in affordable nearfield studio monitors by combining breakthrough designs and technologies they developed primarily for high-end models like their successful SM series. 

Focal’s Shape series introduces a new major design upgrade to Focal's original nearfield monitors by reimagining their impressive aluminum-magnesium dome tweeter. The Shape 50 Powered Studio Monitor is the 5" model in the Focal Shape series, bringing top-quality Focal reference monitor speakers to your pro audio studio, editing suite, songwriting workstation, or any other application where space may be limited. 

The monitor offers a a cutting-edge flax-sandwich cone with an M-shaped inverted-dome driver and innovative acoustics. Focal has created a studio speaker that offers extremely linear and distortion free audio with clear midrange intelligibility and imaging. 

Thanks to the Focal Shape 50’s dual-passive-radiator design, anyone can comfortably place these monitors near walls, while enjoying an extended low end that's still tight, controlled, and accurate.


The Focal Shape 50 is a flexible monitoring loudspeaker created for excellence. This studio monitor can be used from up to roughly 30 in away (80 cm), and it has very extended low end frequency response (50 Hz) considering the overall compact design. With Foca’s timeless design and numerous audio options, this studio monitor is ideal for any recording setting measuring less than 130 sq ft (12 sq m). Beneath the walnut veneer and meticulously curated MDF enclosure, each Shape series studio monitor offers a number of electronics that give them a uniquely linear frequency response.


The amplifier plays a massive role in the function of precision reference monitors, and Focal Shape 50 monitor employs two Class AB amps in its makeup. In pairing these amplifiers with the right acoustic elements, Focal offers users the flexibility of using these monitors in a home studio or pro audio recording workspace.

Overall, the Shape series studio monitors will help provide a stable tonal balance at any level, which is a crucial element in creating mixes that will translate well outside the studio. Users can also easily adjust any Shape studio monitors to the room it’s in, thanks to the tunable shelving filters and the 160 Hz crossover slope. In addition, there's an adjustable high pass filter on this powered studio monitor, so engineers can cut out those serious low-frequency problems or easily accommodate specific subwoofer setups.

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
