Focal Trio6 Be (pair)
Price is for one pair of speakers
“I love these monitors, and they will not be making the return trip to their origin of departure. The Focal Professional Trio6 Be is a fantastic choice for anyone seeking a high-end monitor that is on the bleeding edge of technology, and one that you can absolutely trust to serve you dutifully for years to come. It gets an A+ for fit, finish, sound, and build quality, as well as for flexibility, trustworthiness, and honesty.” – Geoff Stanfield, Tape Op
“By any measure, the Focal Trio6 Be is a monitor of extremely high quality. In three–way mode it delivers a level of transient detail, frequency balance and clarity that is of the highest order. In the two–way Focus mode it turns into a tool for detailed analysis of the mid-range and higher frequencies, and for checking how a mix transfers to lower–quality systems.” – Bob Thomas, Sound On Sound
“The Trio6 Be is a high-end listening experience. They are well-balanced low to high, with the Beryllium tweeter singing silky and sweet at the top of the top end. Jumping Focus back and forth is a great tool for referencing different instrument groups..” – Kevin Becka, Mix Magazine
“As expected, being at the top end of the SM6 line means the Trio6 Be monitors are not cheap. But real quality rarely is. If you are ready for a pair of uncompromisingly high-end 3-way monitors that work great at any volume and translate beautifully, these are well worth taking out for a spin.” – Paul Vnuk Jr., Recording
Two Monitors In One
Essentially, the Trio6 Be is 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.
Two monitors in one with remote switching: a quick and effective way to compare the mix translated to a compromised speaker system
Wide uncompromised dynamics, linearity, and wide dispersion produced by Beryllium inverted dome tweeter: state-of-the-art speaker design and material
Neutral, distortion-free sound thank to W composite sandwich cone
Rotating baffle: facilitates both horizontal and vertical setups
Simplified room integration, thank to LF and HF shelving, 160Hz EQ
High SPL accommodates all musical styles (115dB peak @ 1m)
FOCUS mode (two-way or three-way configuration): Remote pedal (not supplied)
Low and high frequencies & 160Hz notch adjusting: three control knobs
Bespoke tri-amplification for effortless performance:
8″ subwoofer: 200W Class G
5″ woofer: 150W Class G
1″ tweeter: 100W Class AB
Trio6 Be may be used vertically or horizontally to optimise positioning thanks to an adjustable aluminum baffle housing the woofer and tweeter.
This rotating baffle is capable of rotating 360° in 90° increments, making it one of the most versatile speakers to position.
From 3 way mode to 2 way mode – Three-Way Monitor
Switching to FOCUS mode reconfigures Trio6 Be in two-way mode.
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 optimising 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.
Trio6 Be – 2 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 footswitch (not included) activates this configuration remotely from the listening position.
