Focal Twin6 Be - Single, Red

Active three-way near-field shielded monitor
MFR# FOPRO-TWIN6BE

Product Description

The Focal Twin6 Be is an active, three-way, professional near-field/midfield speaker (three built-in amplifiers - 2x150 +100W rms), comprised of two 6.5" (16.5cm) “W” cone sandwich composite drivers, loaded by two large section laminar bass ports and a Focal inverted dome pure Beryllium tweeter.  Both 6.5” drivers handle low frequencies but only one of the two is passing lo-mid frequencies.

About Focal Professional Studio Monitors

Listen to your music, not to your speakers
These few words embody the philosophy of the Focal Professional Division.  It is crucial for engineers, be it in music production, post-production or broadcast, to be able to completely trust what they are hearing.  Our products are designed from the ground up to be professional tools that reproduce the reality of sound without enhancements or degradations.

Specific tools for specific needs

A speaker that “reveals”
A tracking engineer needs to be able to capture the exact tone of the instrument he’s recording with his microphones; he needs to discern the slightest shift in microphone position, EQ, or compression on his monitors.  A mixing engineer needs to be able to place various instruments and vocals in his mix with precision.  The smallest details need to come out clearly on his monitors, i.e., reverbs and spaces, and they need to be reproduced at their proper levels without any artificial alteration of the soundstage.

A speaker that “translates”
The mixing engineer also needs to be able to make sure that his mix sounds as good on other speaker systems in other environments.  Usually, when a mix is done, the engineer will make a copy of it and go listen to it in a car or on a boom box, just to make sure that everything sounds the same everywhere.  In essence, the engineer wants to make sure his mix translates well everywhere it gets listened to.  A completely transparent speaker, that doesn’t impart a “color” to the sound, is the best way to insure perfect mix translation.

Our Speakers “reveal” and “translate” better than others. Why?
Focal Professional Division designs its products from the ground up to fulfill the specific needs of professional sound engineers: to reproduce sound as naturally and precisely as possible.  The truth, and nothing but the truth.  Our R&D labs have put all their knowledge and savvy into action to combat any coloration or distortion that could appear throughout all areas of the speaker.  Even the slightest coloration can hinder the integrity of the signal’s reproduction.  It’s easy to understand how a self vibrating speaker enclosure can blur the original signal, and the same goes for the drivers, the integrated amplifier, the padding, the finish, etc, etc.

coming from Focal Alpha 80s...the twins are more mid focused and balanced. I also paired them with a focal sub6 which covers frequencies down to 30hz. They require at least 100 hours for break in time. After that...the speakers settle down to mid focus and tight detailed low end. The beryllium tweeters are not fatiguing at all...actually compared to the Alphas they are non beaming and pleasing. Note: dont forget to play with speaker positioning and distance...In a well treated room you will hear a difference when you move these monitors 1 inch back in either direction.

The payoff is in the translation in various systems...what you hear is what you get. Its only been a few days but Its very easy to know what frequencies to cut or raise with no guesswork...in my early tests the mid to low end translation is spot on which is the bane of all sound engineers.

I compared the Focal Twin6 BE with the Genelec 8050a, Trident HG3, Quested S7R, Dynaudio BM15a, and the Focal Solo 6 in VKLA's listening room. I've also listened to the Adam A7x, Dynaudio BM5a and others. All of these are great monitors and it largely comes down to your personal preference. But to me, the Twin6 was something special. It has great low-end for such a small driver, and great transients when paired with a Primacoustic Recoil Stabilizer. Where it shines though is in the mid-range. It is a very open sounding speaker. Detail is exceptional, without sounding cold or harsh. I use them as near-field monitors at 1 meter away, and they are easy to listen to for hours at a time. Others have said the tweeter can sound harsh. I disagree. Focal recommends 30hours of break-in. Once this is done, all the initial harshness goes away and the Be tweeter sounds sweet as can be. By the way, the Focal Solo 6 has a very similar signature and would be a great pick if your budget is a bit tighter. It would be my clear second choice between all the others I've listened to. A great investment!

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.
