Le Studio Voce à Morin-Heights Q.C. Canada's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Focal Twin6"

Focal Twin6 Be
Hp 3-way build quality and finish. I use them in my studio with the same SUB series is monstrous. They are coupled to a Benchmark DAC 1. The room is acoustically treated and below the boxes is the Primacoustic.


The frequency curve is sufficiently neutral so I can go to other studios and I easily reconaisse my job. Work the eq is stimulating rather than being a job harassant.Tu can work for hours without fatigue. The stereo image is just devastating and accurate.


I possess for 1 year. I had boxes Neumann KH 310 for three voices. When you know that Neumann is making his HP by Focal it tells us everything. I love period. My friends from other studios come to me and they are impressed every time. They are expensive, but it's more than candy! I would do this without hesitation ... NIOHC

Focal Twin6 Be
I had never listened to Focal in good condition, it took several salons before wanting to look into it, especially since the pro representatives in France but a little unfriendly, not easy when you have no gear street ...
After being invited to listen in good condition I was able to notice before taking them.
I ingéson (among others) and wanted to replace my EVENT ASP8 like listening to the main mix, the vaunted quality lacks a lot of walking on the monitor.
Mix and mastered (why not ...) on Mac with Logic and DP5 and many analog ...


At first listen you love, sometimes too fast ... They are very sensitive to the environment, before being really happy I had to spend three days to properly place them, adjust the filters in the back (I Sub6 more ... a great adventure, too) I had to lower the treble and down to put them closer to me and reduce my Influencing rooms (15 m² with a small correction in the corners and in front).
The pitfalls once settled, we realize that we really need to be lapped.
5 days to listen to all my references (we see that it becomes less rigid) now I have invested cash, and took his snaps.
We can follow a point in the stereo image is very large, plus the ideal position is the head in (1m20 1m60 each baffle removed) we are in the sound, without the prior adjustment of the spectrum and dynamics Everything is blurry, you have to earn: MonsterCable, acoustic correction, ideal positioning of research ...


After 10 days I do notice. Stereo incredible, formidable precision, working the sound sensations, new technology that is in the advanced and current progress, we feel the air digital, it's not like it at all ...
I'm still a little tired of having to do all this to realize their quality, it is surprising considering the price but for trying ADAM (the equivalent model is too powerful for me but formidable and demanding to be paid) , working on MACKIE HR824, Genelec 1031A, 800A TANNOY, DYNAUDIO BM15A and finally keep him for years and Genelec 1030A EVENT ASP8 before moving to Focal, it is worth lingering.
They are expensive, the model Solo6 are great as well, so hard to place, but I do not know what it will give in my studio. The object is beautiful, it's a little console price.
I wish I had a little help or at least warned their required, it's bad gag when you put € 3000 for the boiled ears.
I would do that choice after trying AT ME monitors at this price point with people who are genuinely responsive to my problems.

Focal Twin6 Be
Qualitée the beautiful sound and very good. It can flatter a very good grace to acute
and serious. but never boiled

for what purpose?
Composition of film scores ..

- What amp / What configuration?
They are connected directly to a Mackie DXBUS 200. placed on a unit Argosy


Yes again they are very good speakers
Stereo image impecable .. Take a little time for placer.Comme in the notice before


The price is respectable compared to the qualitée

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Not really, but I listened to Genelec. And other
But it depends on the kind of music ..

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Yes no problem!

Nicolas Perego's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" No regrets!"

Focal Twin6 Be
When I opened my studio pro five years ago I chose to invest in new speakers to have more loyalty than my good old HR824. I listened in the store a dozen pairs, and I was quickly seduced Twin6 Be. They are connected with me the output of a Presonus Central Station, converters SSL Alphalink SX in a room acoustically treated.

Power is more than enough, I did not even feel the need to add a sub (it's a studio, not a nightclub eh p)


rendering is very very good, so detailed that it can be surprising at first, especially in the treble. There is a small run-time, but nothing too serious. It is easy to isolate any are in his head because no part of the spectrum do not "drool", especially in severe and low-mids, very strong and clear, often where other monitors can fish. The dynamics is fully transcribed, the settings of treatment type compressor / gate / limiter / etc are much easier.

Story to show their almost perfect transcript: an artist was resting on the couch with closed eyes in the control room while friend was in the cabin are voice (U87 + UA610). He spoke through the talkback that I kept on, and the other answered, so by Twin6 Be. Only after 5 minutes of discussion, opening his eyes, he realized that his friend was not in the same room as him ... General laughter followed by a quick purchase Solo6 for them!


After five years of daily use in conditions pro, I would do the same choice. It's simple, Twin6 Be are part of some hardware component that has changed my work completely. It was after several months of work on it as I could for the first time being on the proceedings of a mixing or mastering without being tempted to listen to elsewhere (car, house, etc.), and it is always the today.

Unlike other reviews, I have not had any problem locating or setting (but my room is treated and studied geometry).

I see no weakness in these monitors, even the price (certainly not cheap, but we're talking about serious hardware there) seems correct.

I would also like to point out (because it is extremely important if you are a professional) the excellent customer service to Focal, who have repaired and returned three days a speaker who had a small problem (after 5 years, resistance to change ), let me pay for the labor or the cost of return, all that out of warranty. AAA rating seems like a trader!
