Hear Why These Are Focal's Best-selling Monitors

Put up Focal's Twin6 Be monitors, and you'll realize why these nearfields are the best-selling studio reference monitors in Focal's entire renowned range. They boast an extremely clear, near-linear 40Hz-40kHz frequency response, which puts the Twin6 Be's sonic reach outside the range of even your own hearing. How? Focal's inverted-dome tweeter and dual-woofer technology are responsible for the magic. Expect articulate bass and midbass response, midrange neutrality, and nothing but detailed highs — in short, your Focal Twin6Be is dedicated to delivering a precision image.

Focal Twin6 Be 6.5" Active 3-way Studio Monitor at a Glance:
  • Focal's best-seller is all about precision, definition, and accuracy
  • Hear the advantages of Focal's Beryllium inverted-dome tweeter
  • "W" composite sandwich cone helps to optimize the frequency response curve

Focal's best-seller is all about precision, definition, and accuracy
It's no secret, the Focal Twin6 Be 3-way nearfield monitors have been sweeping studios all across Europe and the States. Why? They're extraordinarily transparent — and they're Focal's most versatile work tool. Thanks to the Twin6 Be's image precision, treble definition, and midrange neutrality — all of which are at the heart of the Twin 6 Be's reputation — you'll have all the studio monitor you need for recording, mixing, and mastering.

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 Twin6 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 Twin6 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 Twin6 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 Twin6 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

Love these monitors

I presently own yahama Sh8 and also Focals alpha 80 I like them but it was a big learning curve had me second guessing my self when I mixed down but These monitors translate great to everything iPod, car speakers, what your hear is what you get!

Adding another 5 Star rating

I've owned a pair of Twin6 Be monitors now for 10 months ( purchased from Sweetwater). These monitors have been the only thing I've ever grown more and more in love with as time passes. Probably the best purchase decision I've ever made. So much to be impressed by but the unbelievable clarity just blows me away.. I also use these to play music for enjoyment ( in a nearfield position) and I've never heard anything EVER that sounds better.. where I've owned them or not.

Nice

The Focal Twin's are great monitors. I cant say my mixes have improved because i was happy with my mixes already, but i find these monitors to be accurate and very detailed. And that is exactly what i was looking for. However if you do bass-heavy music, i would advise you to get the sub too. There are people who claim you dont need it, but if you work with mostly hiphop like i do, you definitely need the sub.

ABSOLUTELY THE BEST

I HAVE BEEN RECORDING IN HENDERSONVILLE AT SMS STUDIOS FOR 4 YEARS MAKING ALBUMS. BUT I ALSO HAVE A HOME STUDIO AND TRY TO MIX SOME ON MY OWN. I COULD NEVER GET A GOOD MIX OF MY VOCALS WHEN I TOOK THEM BACK TO HENDERSONVILLE TO TRY TO PATCH ON THE TRACKS THERE. WHEN I BOUGHT THESE JEWELS I COULD HEAR EVERY THING. I COULD HEAR THE MUDDINESS I USE TO THINK WAS GOOD DEPTH AND WAS NOT. THESE LET YOU REALY KNOW WHAT YOUR MIX IS SUPPOSE TO SOUND LIKE. THEY WILL SAVE YOU HEART ACHE AND TIME OF TERRIBLE MIXES WITH CHEAPER MONITORS. I THOUGHT WOW LOOK AT THE STICKER SHOCK PRICES. BUT ONCE I GOT THEM I KNEW. IT WAS LIKE SETTLING DOWN INTO A SAFE COMFORTABLE COUCH WHERE YOU FINALY KNEW YOU WERE WHERE YOU NEEDED TO SAFELY BE WITH YOUR MIXES. I TOOK ONE OF MY TRACKS BACK TO HENDERSON VILLE TO PATCH ON THE TRACKS THERE AND IT IS NOW ONE OF MY BEST SONGS. LET ME TELL YOU THESE ARE THE ONES TO GET. SURE PRICEY BUT THESE ARE REALY REALY WORTH THE PRICE

twin be 6

these speakers are the most incredible, impressive things I've ever heard. have no fear of putting them in a smaller room, they are deep and rich with detail. listening to previously mastered recordings will blow your mind....you can hear mistakes that even the most respectable mastering engineers have made, as well as all of the detail the way that they intended for you to hear it. you will hear for the first time what all of your effects really sound like, how large your sound stage really is and clearly image directivity of instruments and all their reflections. if you are serious about mixing these speakers are a must have. the cons to these speakers are: very large size, the length of the "burn in" time you must do yourself, the fact that the tweeters are made of beryllium (do the research first before buying) and the fact that there is 0 distortion coming from the speakers as you are monitoring which means that at what you think might be 85 decibels really ends up being 95 or 100. what this means is that you have a greater risk of damaging your hearing....so please be careful with these speakers!

Sweetwater Advice

Carson McClain

Working here at Sweetwater you get you listen to and use a lot of speakers. We shoot them out, we take them home, we even compare each version of manufacturers' entire lines. I have to say these are the best monitors I have ever heard and I have never heard detail so great in a studio monitor before. It does not matter if you are mixing smokey jazz or electronic metal, these are the speakers that can and will define you as a professional mixing engineer.

Joseph Secu

Recently I became the proud owner of a pair of these speakers. I've owned many sets of speakers and have listened to just about everything out there and nothing really compares to the Twin6Be. It is by far the most musical sounding speaker I've ever heard. The speaker doesn't get in the way of music. The clarity and transparency is like none other. Very crisp top end with lots of detail and no distortion, smooth midrange, and awesome bottom end. If you're looking for perfection in your mix, this is the way to go.
