Focal began as a small precision mechanics company in France, focusing on manufacturing speaker drivers. The first hit model, Focal’s DB 13, revolutionized the world of bookshelf loudspeakers in the mid-80s. The name had become synonymous with the French acoustic market and steadily began receiving international acclaim. In 2002, Focal released its first set of studio monitors as the company gained an even stronger foothold worldwide.
The Focal sound strikes a clean balance between bass, mid-range, and treble frequencies while maintaining dynamic character. Neutral, unfiltered sound is prioritized to allow original music to remain true. Sound elements (bass, guitar, vocals, drums) retain their respective placements in the stereo field. Above all, Focal believes that good sound can’t be taught or directly obtained; it’s discovered through experience. Focal monitoring systems are one of the most trusted ways to experience sound as it is truly intended.
