OVERVIEW

Active 2-way near field professional monitoring loudspeaker.

The Focal Alpha 65 is a versatile studio monitor with quality components and design. It serves beautifully in a variety of capacities, performing just as well with instrumental music as with electronic music. This model comprises a 6.5" (16.5cm) woofer/ midrange speaker with a Polyglass cone loaded in a large laminar port associated witha 70W amplifier and a 1" (25mm) aluminum inverted dome tweeter (35W amplifier). Alpha 65 has a frequency response of 40Hz to 22kHz (+/- 3dB).

The Polyglass cone makes for a rigid response that won't be overwhelmed by prominent bass signals such as those present in contemporary electronic dance music, and yet, it inhibits unwanted, messy artifacts sometimes associated with those types of signals. These speakers are very smooth and a joy to listenb to and mix on. Pleasanrness of sound can sometimes have as an adjunct a tendency to bury distortion and harsh, overly present signals, but that is not the case with the Focal Alpha 65. Despite the overall warmth and richness of the speakers, they provide all of the detail, for good or ill, that you need in critical listening.

They are excellent for cinema, podcast EQ and cleanup, and any other imaginable audio application as well as their most common use, instrumental or electronic music. If you are seeking a low-profile pair of high quality monitors, consider the Focal Alpha 65.

    Comments about FOCAL Alpha 65 Studio Monitor (Single):

    I really had not even heard of Focal until a few months ago, which is surprising since I've been in the music business a while. When I found out about their speakers, I realized that a lot of the top pros are using Focals. The SM series was out of my budget, so I decided on the Alpha 65's.

    These are the best-sounding speakers I have ever heard.

    I immediately heard tons of problems in my mixes that I had never heard with my previous speakers(Yamaha HS50's.) The imaging and depth of the Alpha 65's has to be heard to believed, especially considering the price. As far as I know, these are for the most part the same speakers as the CMS series, but the Alpha series is manufactured offshore to keep the cost down. If you told me these were $3000 a pair, and I didn't know the price, I would believe you. They are that amazing. Get them.

        Comments about FOCAL Alpha 65 Studio Monitor (Single):

        These are great, affordable monitors, made by an actual speaker company, not a diversified manufacturer. Biggest problem I've had with my mixes is the mid range - not so when using these. Playing my old mixes on the Ficals revealed so many issues. Finally my mixes aren't muddy. Reverb tails are distinct and they are so revealing. If you are looking for flattering monitors look elsewhere. I did have a buzzing problem after a year but was fixed under warranty.
