Quick Overview

LEFT and RIGHT 3-Way Monitor
Add Items to Cart



This monitoring speaker establishes itself as a reference thanks to the precision of the stereo image, its capacity to reproduce each of the micro details of the audio signal, as well as unconditional respect of the original dynamics.

One of the major SM9 innovations lies in the fact of offering 2 monitoring speakers in only one and unique cabinet. The SM9 is thus composed of 2 monitors: a 3 way monitor and a 2 way monitor.



The SM9 monitoring loudspeaker is packed with Focal Professional technologies and innovations. The pure Beryllium inverted dome tweeter offers a perfectly linear frequency response and extremely precise and detailed treble. The 6.5-inch ‘W’ composite sandwich cone woofer offers perfect neutrality thanks to the optimised control of rigidity, lightness and damping. The 8-inch speaker driver, combined with a ‘W’-shaped passive radiator, enables the perfectly precise reproduction of the deep bass register. 


Sound with great precision

Another key point: the SM9 is equipped with a class AB amplifier (100 + 100 + 400W RMS) with very low harmonic distortion, which along with the high frequency response curve, ensure great precision and faithful dynamics of low-level audio signals.



One of the SM9’s major innovations and its key strength lies in the combination of two monitoring loudspeakers in one cabinet. This 3-way monitor enables flawless control of the entire audio spectrum (30Hz-40kHz). The 2-way monitor, with a frequency response ranging from 90Hz to 20kHz, gives you the ability to check the mix transfer quality on devices with a limited bass response (TV, computer, car…)
