The CMS 65 6.5" Active 2-Way Studio Monitor from Focal Professional is a compact nearfield studio monitor ideal for use in home, project, or mobile studios. The reinforced and damped die-cast aluminum cabinet houses a 6.5" Polyglass woofer and an aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeter to provide realistic audio with a wide frequency response. Each speaker is powered by its own Class-AB amplifier, totaling 160W for strong, distortion-free performance. A slotted bass port on the front of the cabinet helps to extend low frequency response.

The monitor features XLR and RCA input connectors, making it easy to connect to a variety of sound systems and devices. It also offers a variety of volume, sensitivity, parametric EQ, high-pass filter, and shelving controls, allowing you to customize the speaker's acoustic response to match your environment. A unique base plate decouples the monitor from your table to minimize vibrations and reflections. It is also magnetically shielded for safe use near video monitors and other electronic devices.

        As soon as I started to listen I got chills, the clearity and depth is amazing. I definitly raised the bar for my studio. these speakers are the real deal for serious listening. The bass is so defined and the highs are so clear.

          Blown away by these studio monitors! Have them running through an Apogee Duet to my iMac and the sound quality is unreal at any volume. I find that I am actually listening to things overall at a lower volume as the sound just fills the air so cleanly. There is no distortion, and just as Focal claims the sound is as natural as can be, designed so you hear the music, not the speakers. Definitely recommend!
