To meet a need for medium-sized tracks in my studio, in addition to a 5.1 system consisting of Focal Solo 6 accompanied by a Focal Sub 6.


The most stunning is first definitely incredible stereo image. Ideal for placing instruments in a mix. Then it is certain that it is more obvious to hear small errors because these monitors are very analytical, without needing to level so high. But above all, this is a great musicality that emerges immediately. Read reviews of all the monitors, it is very often a question of technical parameters (basic course), excluding it is still generally about the music and after listening to almost exhaustively what is done in this price range, I could not express how much these monitors are music (although this is certainly also a subjective opinion of course!).


A wonderful product, impeccable finish. Attention very heavy (37 kg each!), It is essential to be two for installation. Focal, once again, demonstrates the SM9 his knowledge, his seriousness, but also its most tasteful.
