The SM9 from Focal Professional is a professional-quality active studio monitor speaker that offers accurate sound quality and terrific flexibility for a variety of monitoring applications. The speaker features an 11" passive radiator, an 8" subwoofer, a 6.5" midrange driver, and a 1" pure Beryllium tweeter. The radiator, subwoofer, and midrange driver each use Focal's "W" composite sandwich cone technology, which provides a perfect blend of mass, rigidity, and damping for excellent neutrality and an optimal frequency response. The tweeter has an inverted dome design to produce a high output without requiring high output or increasing directivity, ensuring clear treble with a wide sweet spot.
The speaker can be used in 3-way mode, with the 11" driver for bass, the 8" and 6.5" drivers for midrange, and the 1" tweeter for treble. It can also be used in 2-way mode with just the 6.5" driver and the tweeter. This allows you to choose the optimal monitoring scenario for your particular equipment and application. Switching between modes is achieved by simply turning on the FOCUS mode from the side panel. Low-distortion Class-AB power stages provide a combined amplifier power of 600W to ensure powerful, transparent performance with no distortion.
The rear panel offers an electronically-balanced XLR input with an adjustable sensitivity. It also has controls for high-pass crossover, high and low frequency shelving, and EQ controls, allowing you to precisely tune the monitor's response and performance to match your workspace and application. The cabinet is internally braced and has a black finish to provide lasting durability and style.
