Focal SM9 (right) (Right Speaker) Reviews5.0/5.0 based on 2 customer reviews
I'm in love! The Focal SM9 is the speaker I've been dreaming about for quite some time. I finally got a chance to hear it and was blown away. Vocal imaging was crystal clear. Bass was powerful, deep and clean. I can't wait to buy a set for myself.

They are up to the Hype.I have a set of Solo 6s and Yamahas MSP5s but these speakers are on another level, they have solved all the issues i found on my SM6s. The response is very smooth across all the freq. range, no litle jump in the mids like the SM6s have, no needs for working with subs. The 3 way design just blew me away with the deep, solid bass and i really started to think if i ever need something better than this ? What i can say for sure is that these speakers really translate in a faster workflow.

Focal Sm 9Finally the speaker I've been waiting for and yes they are that good!
I had the Focal twins before the SM 9s and I thought these where incredibaly revealing speakers especially in the midrange but these speakers are in a different league all together. The front to back depth is amazing, the bass is deep with very fast transients the hi end is a lot smoother. Great stereo image and 3d quality! The fact that you can use these speakers in focus mode is like having 2 sets of monitors in one. I've actually haven't used my Yamaha ns10s as much.
The real test has been how fast I have been able to mix and have it translate. I use to go back to mixes at least 5 times. What you hear is what you get. I highly recommend these speakers if you produce dance music or hip hop. For the price they definitely compete with the likes of Barfoot & ATC but at a cheaper price point.
