Focal CMS Focus

 

 

 

Accurate and detailed sound image

 

The CMS line is particularly destined for post-production studios, small listening rooms, radio studios and home studios. These monitor loudspeakers all feature Focal technologies, such as the aluminium/magnesium inverted dome tweeter and the Polyglass cone woofer; guaranteeing neutrality, dynamics, detail and precision of the sound image.

 

To meet all your monitoring needs, Focal offers four models: CMS 40, CMS 50, CMS 65 and CMS SUB. All these CMS monitoring loudspeakers, through their compact design and their large front laminar port, can be installed near a wall without the risk of exaggeration or loss of control of the bass register. They have been perfectly conceived so that they can be adapted to suit the acoustic constraints of small monitoring rooms thanks to the various settings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Efficient acoustical integration

 

Thanks to the accessories supplied, acoustical integration is even more efficient, so you can take full advantage of your monitors’ performance. Thanks to the electronic processing, the 6dB difference observed between the XLR and RCA inputs has been fully compensated for.

 

This gives you a listening level which is always identical for consistent recordings, in all types of environment, and whatever peripheral equipment you use.

FOCAL CMS 40

 

 

The CMS 40 is the most compact monitor of the Focal Professional range. Its size/extended bass frequency ratio ensures excellent versatility. This monitor guarantees ultra-realistic voicing, whilst offering optimum acoustic integration in a small room.

 

Its design permits a listening position from 16" (40cm), even in the least advantageous locations (ex. proximity to reverberating surfaces). The CMS 40 is the perfect tool for post-production and home studios. And even in the biggest and best studios, it proves to be an excellent second monitoring system, allowing one to quickly check how the mix translates onto smaller speakers.

 

Key Points

 

  • 2 way bi-amplified near field professional monitoring systems
  • Neutral, dynamic and detailed sound for optimum reproduction
  • Deep, large and precise soundstage
  • Numerous settings and fixing accessories for acoustic and aesthetic integration without compromise
  • Acoustically treated aluminium box offering perfect sound transparency
  • Compact systems combining easy installation and irreproachable sound quality

FOCAL CMS 50

 

The CMS 50 is the most compact monitoring loudspeaker of all the Focal Professional range. Its design permits listening from 50cm away, while still keeping the possibility of the monitors at a great distance from one another without damaging the soundstage.

 

The 5” mid-woofer reaches down to 55Hz, while offering a controlled bass and a totally linear midrange. The midrange register of the CMS 50 has unequalled neutrality in its price range. The Al-Mg inverted dome tweeter offers outstanding dynamics and a degree of definition in the treble that allow precise measurement of reverb and other effects which are normally very difficult to assess.

  • Neutral, dynamic and detailed sound for optimum reproduction

FOCAL CMS 65

 

 

The reference standard of the CMS line, the CMS 65 received the 2008 Excellence Award from Pro Audio Review magazine due to its amazing size/price/performance ratio. Its extended response at 45Hz (-3dB) allows installation without a subwoofer.

 

CMS 65 monitors are characterized by treble definition, midrange transparency and adjustable control of the midbass and bass registers. The tonal balance is extremely stable, even at very loud volumes, ensuring accurate reproduction when mixing and mastering.

FOCAL CMS SUB

 

 

The CMS SUB woofer was designed to be extremely efficient, to make the most out of amplifier headroom, making sure that you can hear the slightest changes to compression settings. The CMS SUB is part of Focal's compact CMS range with acoustically transparent Aluminium enclosures optimised for maximum rigidity and damping. The Polyglass cone, developed by Focal themselves, is designed for neutral sound with no colouration.


Focal's CMS SUB has numerous settings (low-pass filter + sound level + entirely adjustable phase, phase reversal, Footswitch input, MUTE) The acoustic coupling between the subwoofer and monitors is excellent. You can turn to a 2.1 configuration and keep your habits and marks you acquired with a 2.0 system.

 

The 300W RMS BASH technology amp means you get AB amplification quality combined with class D efficiency. LFE left and right inputs and outputs give simplified connections and upgrade possibilities. You can upgrade from a 2.1 configuration to a 5.1 without any extra gear.


 

 

Key Points

 

  • Award-Winning Compact CMS Range
  • Durable , High-quality 11" Polyglass Cone
  • Low Subwoofer Frequency Response
  • 300W RMS BASH Technology Amplifier
  • Ideal For Smaller Professional Studio Environments
