Innovative, compact, and impressively powerful, the Focal Shape 40 Studio Monitor is a 4-inch nearfield studio monitor that's the perfect choice for any musician or producer.

Ideal for larger rooms, this superior monitor delivers a crystal clear, uncoloured sound that's guaranteed to make your session come to life!

Innovative Design

Designed to adapt to any studio environment, the Shape 40 comes with an exterior construction with no port. Meaning it can be easily placed against walls without hassle or affecting the sound quality.

At the core of this high tier monitor, Focal has placed a duo of Class AB amplifiers to supply an elevated sonic performance by powering the drivers. Experience a controlled yet thunderous low-end and a highly detailed mid-range response, that's bound to take your sound to new heights.

Enhanced Low-End

Showcasing an intuitive wide range of frequencies to capture every finer nuance in your session, the Shape 40 Studio Monitor comes with a unique flax sandwich, that consists of a flax fibre core and two thin layers of fibreglass. This delivers spectacular internal damping and unparallel sonic velocity that's bound to deliver results immediately!

Stunning Looks

Encased within a stunning MDF cabinet with a lush natural walnut veneer, make your studio rig look the part. Not only that but the rear features various settings such as a releasable high-pass filter, adjustable crossover plus an adjustable bass and treble.
