FULL DESCRIPTION

The Focal Shape 50 Studio Monitor (Single) is a compact, 5-inch nearfield studio monitor equipped with a unique flax sandwich cone and a 5-inch passive radiator. This innovative monitor integrates cutting-edge technology and premium components for superior performance.

ADVANCED NEARFIELD MONITORING

The Shape 40 Studio Monitor offers low tweeter directivity for flexible listening positions and is designed without a port, allowing placement close to a wall. It can be used from a distance of 60cm, adding versatility. The extended frequency range of 60Hz to 35kHz ensures detailed audio reproduction, making it perfect for mixing and mastering.

INNOVATIVE FEATURES

The Focal Shape 50 boasts a unique design with a side-firing, 4-inch double passive radiator. Its 1-inch M-shaped aluminium/magnesium inverted dome tweeter, paired with a 4-inch flax sandwich cone woofer, delivers extended low-end response. The monitor's portless design allows placement near walls, and it performs well from 60cm away, ideal for larger spaces. Its superior technology ensures transparent, uncoloured sound, suitable for professional audio work.

EXCEPTIONAL SONIC ACCURACY

The 5-inch flax sandwich cone ensures optimal low-end response with a flax fibre core sandwiched between fibreglass layers, providing high internal damping and exceptional sound velocity. This design offers optimal sound neutrality, perfect for audio mixing and referencing. Two Class AB amplifiers power the drivers, ensuring controlled bass and detailed mid-range. The 1-inch M-shaped tweeter provides exceptional high-end detail, complementing the flax cone for a natural and rich sound.

TMD (TUNE MASS DAMPER) TECHNOLOGY

The TMD technology stabilises the dynamics of the flax sandwich cone woofer, preventing cone deformation without affecting dynamics. This technology, used in earthquake-resistant buildings and racing suspensions, reduces woofer fatigue over time, ensuring a natural and rich mid-range.

NIC (NEUTRAL INDUCTANCE CIRCUIT) TECHNOLOGY

NIC technology ensures a stable magnet circuit, optimising the custom Faraday ring for high-definition audio fidelity. This results in detailed audio with uncompromised dynamics and contrast.

SLEEK DESIGN AND ATTENUATION CONTROLS

Housed in an MDF cabinet with a natural walnut veneer, the Focal Shape 50 is both stylish and acoustically optimised. The rear panel includes various settings, such as a high-pass filter, adjustable crossover at 160Hz, and adjustable bass and treble, allowing customisation for any space. The cabinet also features mounting threads for ceiling and wall mounts (fastening accessories not included).
