Focal Trio6 Be Studio Monitor

The Focal Trio6 Be was designed to meet the standards of the most demanding engineers. This dual monitor is the new reference in its price range owing to its extreme neutrality, its precise stereophonic imaging, and its ability to resolve the most minute sonic details, while its Class G amplifiers deliver SPL levels to suit all musical styles.

The Focal Trio6 Be is essentially a three-way speaker with a 1" tweeter, a 5" woofer, and an 8" subwoofer. Yet, switching to FOCUS mode reconfigures Trio6 Be in two-way monitor. The Trio6 Be was designed to meet the standards of the most demanding engineers. This dual monitor is the new reference in its price range owing to its extreme neutrality, its precise stereophonic imaging, and its ability to resolve the most minute sonic details, while its Class G amplifiers deliver SPL levels to suit all musical styles.

THREE-WAY MONITOR - 1" tweeter, a 5" woofer, and an 8" subwoofer
When utilised to its full potential, the Beryllium tweeter reaches up to 40kHz and the 8" subwoofer extends low frequencies down to 35Hz. This offers engineers complete control of the audio signal.

The 8" W composite sandwich cone subwoofer is complemented by its large port integrated into the front baffle, making it easy to position the monitor near the front wall without saturating the ports and maintaining excellent low-frequency linearity. Its large front port guaranties consistent performance regardless of SPL levels. It also allows a positioning closed to a wall without wall boost effect, allowing an easy integration even in small rooms. The 5" W composite sandwich cone woofer is installed in an isolated chamber within the cabinet that prevents the sympathetic activation of its other speakers while optimizing its acoustic performance. Two front-facing ports provide bass reflex, enabling the woofer to perform identically in both two-way (90Hz - 2.5kHz) and three-way (250Hz - 2.5kHz) configurations. The 1" pure Beryllium inverted dome tweeter provides numerous advantages, including wide dispersion, amazing frequency response linearity, quick dynamics, and unrivaled impulse response.

TWO-WAY MONITOR - 1" tweeter, a 5" woofer
As a two-way speaker, Trio6 Be employs only the 5" woofer and the tweeter, limiting frequencies to between 90Hz and 20kHz. This configuration provides the perfect compromise when checking the quality of the mix for playback systems with limited frequency response, such as TVs, PCs, cars, and portable speaker systems. The frequency response curve of the two-way configuration is identical, though less extended, to its three-way curve, allowing for a perfect comparison that preserves the stereo image. Focusing on this critical middle frequency range facilitates a good mix and enables the engineer to ensure that the levels are just right. A foot-switch (not included) activates this configuration remotely from the listening position. A 1/4-inch input jack on the rear panel receives the trigger signal from a remote pedal, while a 1/4-inch output sends a link to the input on a paired monitor. Most single-button guitar amplifier foot-switches are compatible.

ROTATING BAFFLE
Trio6 Be may be used vertically or horizontally to optimize positioning thanks to an adjustable aluminum baffle housing the woofer and tweeter. This rotating baffle is capable of rotating 360-degrees in 90-degree increments, making it one of the most versatile speakers to position.

What We Think

Perhaps our favorite of the 6 Be line from Focal, the Focal Trio6 Be is definitely their most flexible studio monitor, to date. Why? Well, it's essentially two sets of studio monitors in one. Plus the rotating baffle and remote foot-switch capability (optional with purchase of foot-switch) makes this monitor satisfy the need for a larger 3-way monitor while also providing a smaller 2-way presentation - all within the same footprint! And if you've ever wrestled with the compromises of placing multiple sets of monitors on a console, stands, or desk, this is certainly cause for joy. What is surprising for many is that to switch from the 3-Way mode to 2-Way mode, the audio relays to a second crossover specific to routing the full range of the audio between only the tweeter and the 5-inch woofer. As a result, the 2-way presentation sounds much less like simply turning off the 8-inch woofer, and much more like using a completely different set of monitors... mainly because that's what they have become.

Make no mistake, these are some beautiful monitors to view. But they certainly take your breath away when monitoring. The Trio6 Be cannot be recommended highly enough!
