Focal Sub6 11″ Powered Studio Subwoofer
“Anyone doing sound design for film or working in a genre that requires constant monitoring of the deepest of bass frequencies would appreciate the clarity, versatility, and ease of the Sub6-in use with or without Focal monitors as the satellites.” – Allen Farmelo, Tape Op
The Sub6 is a large volume cabinet design, equipped with an 11″ woofer and a rear laminar port. This configuration guarantees bass linearity whatever the intended SPL.
The control board is extremely versatile, with connectivity which allows a 2.1, 2.2 and multichannel use via the L/R inputs and outputs and the LFE.
The numerous settings such as the high-pass crossover dedicated to monitors, the adjustable phase and level control provide optimum coupling with the Solo6 Be and the Twin6 Be monitors. And finally, a small, but important point: the footswitch input. It enables one to connect a pedal to deactivate the subwoofer and the high-pass crossovers on the outputs that supply the monitors. This simplifies and greatly improves control during the different stages in monitoring.
Connectivity – For Optimal Intergration
The Sub6 monitor loudspeaker was developed to perfectly complement the acoustics of Focal monitoring loudspeakers. It features numerous settings such as a stereo high-pass crossover (75Hz – 100Hz) specific to left and right loudspeakers, a configurable low-pass filter with mono summation, a phase inverter, adjustable phase and even a MUTE switch. The various connectivity options enable use in 2.1, 2.2 and multi-channel modes, via the L/R inputs and outputs, and the LFE input.
Footswitch – The “little extra” which makes the difference
A major advantage of the Sub6 is its footswitch input. This allows you to connect a footswitch which cuts off the subwoofer and deactivates the high-pass crossovers on the outputs powering the monitors. The footswitch input enables you to compare the sound of a 2.1 set-up (Sub6 filtered + monitors filtered by the Sub6) with that of a 2.0 set-up (subwoofer deactivated + monitors in wideband mode). The two versions can be compared instantly, simply by pressing the footswitch: you barely have to move a muscle.
