Key Info

Focal Shape 65 (Single) is a 6.5" Active Studio Monitor that features a double passive radiator

The Focal Shape 65 brings together Focal's expertise and technology into one extraordinary package. Being the reference of the Shape line, Shape 65 will provide you with full range nearfield monitoring capability from the lowest to the highest frequencies. To eek out the most potential from this monitor you must sit 1 meter (three feet) away. With a sealed cabinet and double passive radiator you can expect fast transient response with the benefit of hearty bass extension from the radiators and also allowing the monitor to be used in reasonable proximity to walls. We truly do like how these monitors are...shaping...up!

The three monitors are all made in France and integrate five innovations to maximise acoustic transparency. Designed to meet the needs of nearfield monitoring, Shape monitors combine an ingenuous design and numerous settings optimised for the acoustics of small listening rooms.

These innovations provide remarkable acoustic transparency. These new work tools distinguish themselves through the wide and extremely precise stereo image. The bass register is articulated and controlled. The lower mid-range and mid-range benefit from extreme neutrality, and without any masking effects, making equalisation of these essential registers much easier. Finally, the new tweeter is what’s at the source of the very high definition. It efficiently reveals any hissing, and it’s also very precise in the very high end.


  • Tweeter with very low directivity for a flexible listening position
  • Designed without a port, but with a double passive radiator, allowing it to be placed near a wall.
  • Numerous settings for optimal integration.
  • Accurate control, even in the very high end.
  • Flax sandwich cone: controlled and articulated bass, natural and detailed lower mid-range and upper mid-range registers.
  • Mounting mechanisms present on the back and underneath the loudspeaker: for installing on a table stand, a microphone stand, the ceiling or a wall (Mounting accessories not supplied).
