Focal Professional Introduces CMS 50 & CMS 65 Active Nearfield Monitors
Focal has announced the CMS 65 and CMS 50 active nearfield studio monitors. Focal claims the aluminium die-cast cabinets are bring rigidity while internal damping and bracing sets the monitor free from unwanted colorations.
Focal’s Al/Mg (Aluminium/Magnesium) inverted dome tweeter combines both, ideal lightweight mass and damping, resulting in a tweeter that easily extends up to 28khz at –3db, with a solid 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 reportedly 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 CMS 50 cost $650 each and the CMS 65 is $950 each. More information on the Focal CMS 50 and CMS 65.
