Full description

Innovative nearfield monitoring

The Focal Shape 65 Studio Monitor is a compact, nearfield studio monitor with a unique design featuring a side-firing, 5-inch dual passive radiator. The 1-inch M-shaped aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeter combines with the 6-inch Flax sandwich cone woofer for an extended low-end range. The Focal Shape 65 is designed without a port, so it can be placed near a wall. The superior technology provides a transparent, uncolored sound, ideal for mixing & mastering applications.

Exceptional sonic accuracy - perfect for professionals

The 6 inch Flax sandwich cone provides optimal low-end response thanks to the high-quality flax fiber core enclosed between two thin layers of fiberglass. The result is high internal damping in combination with exceptional sound speed and bending stiffness. The sandwich technology methods used to create this Flax sandwich cone ensure optimal sound neutrality, ideal for mixing and referencing audio.

The heart of the Shape studio monitor is formed by two class AB amplifiers that drive the drivers for optimal audio performance. The result is controlled and articulate bass and detailed mid-range response. The 1-inch M-shaped aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeter provides exceptional high-end detail, combining with the flax sandwich cone for a natural yet rich sound.

TMD technology (Tune Mass Damper)

One of the most unique features of the Focal Shape series is the TMD (Tune Mass Damper). The damper surrounds the edge of the flax sandwich cone woofer and stabilizes the resonance to prevent cone distortion without affecting dynamics. This patented technology is used in earthquake-resistant skyscrapers and racing car suspensions to provide additional resistance to the resonant frequency to control it. The result is minimal woofer cone fatigue over time, creating a natural and rich midrange.

NIC - neutral induction

Another unique technology in the Focal Shape's design is the NIC (Neutral Inductance Circuit Technology) which provides an incredibly stable magnet circuit. The custom Faraday ring used for this has been optimized using custom materials, dimensions and placement to ensure that the magnetic field no longer affects the placement of the voice coil. This in turn ensures the highest possible fidelity audio and performance. The result is high-definition audio without compromising dynamics/contrast.

Slim design with built-in damping control

The Focal Shape Nearfield Studio Monitor is housed in an MDF cabinet with veneer. natural walnut veneer, which not only looks sleek but also offers extra acoustic qualities. The back of the device is equipped with numerous settings for optimal integration, including a switchable high-pass filter, an adjustable crossover (at 160Hz) and adjustable bass and treble. These mute controls allow you to customize each area or room for optimal audio quality and listening position. The housing is also equipped with screw thread for ceiling and wall mounting (mounting material not included).
