SM9: Stereo Image Precision

 

 

This monitoring speaker establishes itself as a reference thanks to the precision of the stereo image, its capacity to reproduce each of the micro details of the audio signal , as well as unconditional respect of the original dynamics.

 

One of the major SM9 innovations lies in the fact of offering 2 monitoring speakers in only one and unique cabinet. The SM9 is thus composed of 2 monitors: a 3 way monitor and a 2 way monitor.

 

 

 

 

 

The "nec plus ultra" of Focal drivers

 

The SM9 line is a sheer product of Focal technologies and innovation.The new pure Beryllium inverted dometweeter, specially developed for the SM9 line,offers unprecedented linearity and ability to reveal micro-information. This is due to an entirely new magnet structure that achieves a mind-boggling 2.1 Tesla of magnetic flux.

 

This has a profound effect on the tweeter’s ability to reproduce micro-dynamics, which helps the engineer to dial-in compression and reverb. The new 61/2" (16.5cm) "W" composite sandwich cone midrange driver benefits from great damping characteristics. The derived Impulse Response is simply the best of its class. Midrange and mid-bass frequencies are then reproduced without any masking effect, ensuring perfect neutrality.

Custom-made amplification

 

 


The all-new, all-analog amplifiers developed specifically for the SM9 demonstrate the unwillingness to compromise. 600Watts of class AB amplification drives the SM9 on three separate channels, respectively 400W (woofer), 100W (midrange) and 100W (tweeter). These new amplifiers are halfway between class A and class AB in regards to the bias current. This choice perfectly respects the dynamics contained in the original audio signal, guarantee of extremely precise adjustment of the compression ratio, attack and release settings.

 

 

Input stage: flexibility in all-analog world

 

 


Six detended knobs situated on the back panel allow the engineer or the acoustician to compensate for some room anomalies and optimize the monitor response in the room (see specifications). For studios with optimum acoustic condition, the engineer can bypass these adjustments (except for the low-pass filter) by activating the DIRECT switch on the inside side panel and thus ensure a direct signal between the input and the amplification stages.
