The Solo6 Be monitor will surprise you in the very first minutes you spend with it, partly due to its size/extended bass response (40Hz at -3dB). The 6.5" “W” composite sandwich mid-woofer combines neutrality in the midrange, fullness in the midbass register and bass control.

“ My first experience with Focal clarity lasted for weeks. I just had to go back and listen to all of my favorite records again because I was hearing things that I never heard before!

“ The first time I heard the Focal Solo6 studio monitors I was beyond impressed. They were true and accurate and at the same time didn't sound "boring" like other monitors I have used. Hearing what is actually going on inside a mix or recording session is just as important as any other part of making a record. Focal monitors are my top choice. For my small home studio, the Solo6's are perfection. And FYI, I didn't get them for free or at a discount. I bought these monitors because I loved them.”
