Description

The Focal SM9 three-way powered monitor establishes itself as a reference thanks to the precision of the stereo image, its capacity to reproduce each of the micro details of the audio signal , as well as unconditional respect of the original dynamics.

This monitoring speaker establishes itself as a reference thanks to the precision of the stereo image, its capacity to reproduce each of the micro details of the audio signal, as well as unconditional respect of the original dynamics.

 One of the major SM9 innovations lies in the fact of offering two monitoring speakers in only one and unique cabinet.  The SM9 is thus composed of two monitors:

  • A three-way monitor (Beryllium tweeter + 6.5" “W” woofer + 8" “W” subwoofer + 11" passive radiator).  This monitor offers a frequency response from 30Hz to 40kHz for total control of the audio signal permitting extremely precise work.
  • A two-way monitor (Beryllium tweeter + 6.5” “W” woofer).  This monitor offers a frequency response from 90Hz to 40kHz, permitting to check the mix transfer quality on systems with limited frequency response in the bass frequencies for example TV sets, computers, cars, iPod docks or any multimedia system.  This monitor also permits to check the midrange register, very hard to equalize and balance in terms of sound level compared to the other information contained in the audio signal.  The activation of this monitor is made by setting off the FOCUS mode on the side panel.

Pure Beryllium inverted dome tweeter
The inverted dome tweeter is a hallmark of Focal. Introduced more than twenty years ago, this tweeter produces a high output, but without requiring high energy input and without increasing directivity.

The introduction of the pure Beryllium dome, capable of covering five 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.  This tweeter allows an unprecedented price/performance ratio. To finish with, the new TB872 tweeter delivers outstanding dynamics thanks to its amazing magnet field (2.1 teslas).

The “W” cone
Focal has been developing the technologies of composite sandwich cones for more than 15 years.  The «W» process (Glass/Foam/Glass) provides a true optimization of the frequency response by fine tuning of mass, rigidity and damping parameters.  The balance between these three fundamental and often contradictory parameters is at the basis of the outstanding sound neutrality of our speakers.

Passive radiator
In order to reproduce the lowest frequency range within a very small volume without any air flow noises, the SM9 is equipped with a no compromise, custom designed “W” passive radiator.

High performance tailor-made amplification
The SM9 uses low distortion class AB power stages for low (400W), mid (100W) and high frequency (100W) channels, entirely respecting the dynamics of the low level audio signal and ensuring total transparency.
