That Focal Magic, in a Compact 2-way!

Whether you're recording, mixing, or mastering, the Solo6 Be is just the kind of no-nonsense, cutting-edge reference monitor you're going to want in your studio. True, the Solo6 Be has an amazing bass response for its size (down to 40Hz), not to mention an impressive upper-frequency response that reaches beyond human hearing to 40kHz — but this monitor's still much more than just its numbers. It's full. It's clear. It's articulate. And, just like its 3-way big brother, the Twin6 Be, the Solo6 Be is all about ensuring your tracks translate.

Focal Solo6 Be 6.5" 2-way Active Studio Monitor Specifications:
  • A compact, 2-way version of Focal's best-selling nearfield
  • Hear the advantages of Focal's Beryllium inverted-dome tweeter
  • "W" composite sandwich cone helps to optimize the frequency response curve

A compact, 2-way version of Focal's best-selling nearfield
The Solo6 Be combines the same elements as Focal's highly respected 3-way Twin6 Be, just in a compact 2-way design. Just as with the Twin6 Be, you'll be stunned by the Solo6 Be's clarity and the extended frequency response: it reaches from 40Hz up to 40kHz, above and beyond the range of your hearing. What's handy about the Solo6 Be, though, is that when you combine its amazingly neutral sound with its compact size and user-adjustable rear settings, you've got a reference monitor you can feasibly take from studio to studio, tailor to the room's acoustics, and consistently record/mix/master translatable tracks.

Hear the advantages of Focal's Beryllium inverted-dome tweeter
A Focal hallmark is the inverted-dome tweeter — and it's a big part of the magic behind the Solo6 Be's amazing performance. The particular advantage of the inverted dome is that it optimizes the mechanical coupling between the voice coil and the dome. As the voice coil is fixed at mid-height on the dome, it can uniformly move the Solo6 Be's entire cone surface. This design inherently offers high efficiency, precision, and energy, all resulting in an extremely precise soundstage. Add to that the use of Beryllium for the Solo6 Be's dome — a material noted for its incredible rigidity — and you've got a speaker that can near-linearly span from 40Hz all the way up to 40kHz, above the range of human hearing.

"W" composite sandwich cone helps to optimize the frequency response curve
The Solo6 Be takes advantage of Focal's "W" composite sandwich cone. The unique characteristics of the cone permits optimization of the frequency response curve, thanks to the total control of three key parameters: lightness, rigidity, and damping. The sound is amazingly transparent, has an excellent phase response, and has an extremely low distortion rate.

  • Hallmark-Focal inverted-dome tweeter, for high efficiency, precision, and energy

The Truth

I wouldn't do without these going forward. We thank you Focal!
5/5

Serious

You hear everything. These are extremely transparent, and they translate very well to pretty much every system. I've gone back and completely cleaned up tons of my music already, and my tracks are cleaner and clearer than ever. These are what you're looking for if you're serious about sound. These make the speakers in my school's Moog Studio sound like doodoo.

Outstanding Refinement

I bought these for an audiophile computer desktop system and am not involved in the recording or music industry. The Solo6 Be exceeded my expectations in every way. The level of information these pass is outstanding. You'll be able to hear every nuance of a recording from textures to harmonic overtones. Very smooth response with no harshness. Another aspect very important to me is imaging and the Solos have it in spades. Bass response is quite good too, especially considering their size. I could happily live without a subwoofer. If these are a bit out of your price range I would advise you to stretch your budget. You won't be dissapointed.

Amazing Monitors. But...

...you have to work on the mix to get things sounding great because what you hear is what you get! Amazing translation to all types of sound systems large to small. YOUR PREVIOUS MIXES WILL SOUND LIKE CRAP ON THESE...BE CAREFUL. This is not a speaker that sounds great...its just very accurate and helps you achieve mixes that translate well. ISN'T THAT THE POINT...? Full sound range is crystal clear. I roll-off everything very hard below 30-40hz depending on the song, so i don't need the sub they sell (though i'm sure it serves as a great reference for mixing accurate lows below 40hz to 25hz). Amazing stereo field when set up at the proper angle, 1-3 meters away, with tweeters ear level. Use recoils or mopads with recoils being the greater. My mixes have gone from FAIR/GOOD to INDUSTRY STANDARD SOUND. If you're an experienced engineer, a few weeks with these and you'll say the same also. Don't spend your money on plug-ins, and a bunch of software you don't need. Get yourself a good set of standard plug-ins that you like and call it a day! IF YOU CAN'T HEAR WHAT ALL YOUR EXPENSIVE PLUG-INS ARE DOING? YOU'RE MAKING BAD JUDGEMENT CALLS WHEN YOU'RE MIXING!!! Spend your cash on a fast and large computer, a great daw with great sounding converters, good cables (yes!), good pre-amps and mics, some acoustic treatment and best of all AN AMAZING PAIR OF MONITORS. Now you go and make yourself music that might have a chance of sounding professional. Good luck to all of those that pursuit this music we call...LIFE!!!

Sweetwater Advice

Carson McClain

From minimal jazz and classical to complex electronic or rock, Focal Solo6 Bes are THE go-to speakers if you know what you want out of your mixes. They don't fatigue your ears, and sound excellent at any volume level. Combine these with a Dangerous Monitor ST control system and you'll be set!

Chris McCown

Do you want to hear your speakers, or your music? If it's the latter, then you're looking at the right product. Unbelievable detail and no harsh tweeter sound, thanks to the inverted beryllium tweeter. Aside from sounding like they belong in your studio, they look gorgeous too! Power, beauty, and accuracy. You want these.

Josh Estock

The depth and stereo image of the Focal Solo6 Be monitors allow you to truly hear what's going on in your mix. The Berylium tweeters provde an extremely detailed high-end, while the 6.5" driver gives you an accurate and tight low- and mid-range. After listening to these a few times I couldn't resist - they now reside in my studio and my mixes have never been better!
