Focal Alpha 50's

Putting together home studio needed studio monitors. I did my research talked to the tech at Sweetwater and the Focal Alpha 50's are exactly what I needed. They are crisp clear articulate with absolutely plenty of bottom end. Thanks again Brent for your help. Mitch

Focal Alpha 50

Really fantastic sounding monitors for the price! Keep in mind these are made in China, not the factory in France, but don't let that lead you to believe that they are not quality or that you could make a better decision at this price point! Getting these monitors placed properly for the ideal sweet spot is key for these monitors, considering the sweet spot is not very large, as expected with any 5" near field monitors. You won't be disappointed! And don't worry, they pack a decent punch ;)

Great Monitors

These are fantastic studio monitors. Smooth high end and mid range. Extended and defined low end. The low end is understandable unlike other 5" monitors. If you are in a home studio and want to upgrade because you either feel like your monitors do not reproduce low end frequencies well or feel like its time to upgrade to something that is significantly better quality, this is definitely the way to go. I did't think the 5" woofers would have enough low end power, but I was shocked at the power and quality that these can reproduce low end frequencies. Would highly recommend these to anyone looking to get accurate sound at a great price point. These have similar quality to the genelecs almost 3 times their price.
