Description & Specs

Made in France, Solo6 is a 2-way monitor offering unrivalled transparency, definition control, dynamics and soundstage precision.

Thanks to its full-range Focus Mode, Solo6 forms two monitors in one, preserving the sweet spot during the mix, saving space on the console and simplifying cabling and monitor changes.

In terms of technologies and performance, Solo6 boasts an inverted dome Beryllium tweeter with an ‘M’-shaped protective grille, and a woofer with a ‘W’-shaped cone, as well as a frequency range of up to 10 kHz, specially designed for the Focus Mode. All this on top of Focal’s patented Tuned Mass Damper (TMD) technology, which reduces distortion in the 1kHz – 3kHz frequency range by 50%, as well as a high-pass crossover, a disengageable automatic standby mode and a 160Hz crossover for reflections from consoles – making Solo6 an industry-leading monitor.

Finally, to enjoy immersive listening experiences with Dolby Atmos and Sony 360RA installations, Solo6 includes inserts for attaching it to the wall and ceiling.

COMPOSITE ‘W’ SANDWICH CONE
The ‘W’ composite cone is made in France by Focal and allows the frequency response curve to be perfectly optimised. This cone’s unique characteristics of lightness and rigidity control the signal transmission speed within the material. The modulation of the structural foam’s thickness provides very precise control of the cone’s damping quality. When you’re listening, it creates total sound transparency, a very low distortion rate and an excellent phase response.

FOCUS MODE
The Focus Mode enables the loudspeaker to be converted into a one-way full-range monitor, providing a different speaker driver configuration accessed by simply pressing a pedal – as though there were a second pair of studio monitors with a reduced dynamic allowing the mix adaptability to be checked on smaller systems. 

MULTIPLE FEATURES
Solo6 and Twin6 include a variable high-pass crossover and a 160Hz parametric crossover to reduce reflections caused by the console or desk. These monitors are also equipped with a high-pass crossover and a disengageable automatic standby mode, accessible via a switch and offering a simple and essential option for controlling the loudspeaker.

DESIGN
The design of the cabinets in the ST6 line uses a thick and robust material, allowing ever greater rigidity and damping to be achieved, with fewer vibrations and therefore less distortion.
 
  • Beryllium inverted dome tweeter: very low directionality, excellent linearity and dynamics

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback.
