Functional And Adaptable Positioning

The Shape 50 is a flexible beast of a loudspeaker, with an excellent 50Hz low-end frequency response and the ability to be used from 80cm away - Giving the user full customisation of their set up.

Focal Shape 50 Active Nearfield Studio Monitor Features:

  • 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: providing controlled and well-defined bass, natural and detailed lower mid-range and upper mid-range ranges.
  • Mounting mechanisms on the back/underneath the loudspeaker: for various installation options

Superb Quality and Customisation

All three monitors in the Focal Shape 50 are engineered in France, integrating five different innovations to give you sweet, superb acoustic transparency!

The Shape 50 is also built to suit the needs of nearfield monitoring, with its innovative design and various settings. It's perfect for the acoustics in small rooms and close monitor listening. There's also the option to mount/put it next to the wall due to the design having no port on the back. So much choice!

Compact and Powerful

As mentioned before, the Focal's unique design also includes a 5-inch Flax sandwich provides you with an incredible low-end response. Meticulously enclosed between two thin layers of fibreglass, the result gives you top internal damping mixed with unprecedented, robust, sonic flexibility.

Due to this, the Flax sandwich gives you optimised neutral sound, perfect for mixing and mastering scenarios.

Maximum audio performance is provided by two Class AB amplifiers at the monitor's core, giving the final product of controlled and refined bass along with a colourful mid-range response.

And finally the 1-inch M-shaped aluminium/magnesium inverted dome tweeter gives the monitor unbelievable, undistorted high-end detail, overall projecting an overflowing natural sound.

Sleek Design

The Focal Shape Nearfield Studio Monitor comes in a natural walnut veneer MDF cabinet, providing a polished minimal design and additional acoustic customisation options.

At the back of the unit, you'll find various features and settings, giving you the choice of further optional user integration. Some examples are adjustable bass and treble, and a releasable high-pass filter. Optimise your experience!

If you're looking for an unbiased sound, this studio monitor from Focal is a must-buy!
