Focal Professional Introduces New CMS Active Nearfield Monitors
Focal Professional has announced their new CMS Active Nearfield Monitors in two flavors, the CMS 50 and the CMS 65. Based upon Focal proprietary driver technology, the new CMS 65 and CMS 50 are two new active nearfield studio monitors that Focal claims offer outstanding performance and exceptional versatility in a price segment that rarely sees any breakthrough innovation.
The finished aluminium die-cast cabinets claim to bring unconditional rigidity while internal damping and bracing sets the monitor free from unwanted colorations. Focal’s unique Al/Mg (Aluminium/Magnesium) inverted dome tweeter combines both, ideal lightweight mass and superb damping, resulting in a tweeter that easily extends up to 28khz at -3db, with a close to perfection pulse response.
The Polyglass bass driver combines hollow micro-balls of glass to a pulp cellulose cone thus permitting an amazing rigidity versus mass ratio. The rigidity versus mass ratio of Polyglass is 10 times better than polypropylene and easily exceeds Kevlar.
These bi-amplified active nearfield monitors, 165 watts for the CMS 65 and 130 watts for the CMS 50, benefits from the smoother sound of two high end class AB amplifiers. Thanks to separate HF and LF shelving adjustments, a Desktop Notch correction filter that controls first reflection when the speakers are located over the mixing board, rubber decoupling stand, spikes to tilt the speakers and adjust soundstage height, the Focal Professional CMS 65 and CMS 50 are versatile and will feel at home in any Broadcast, Post-Production or Recording Studio.
The Focal Professional CMS 50 costs $695 each and the CMS 65 will damage your bank account $995 each. More information on the Focal Professional CMS 50 and CMS 65.
