Focal Professional introduces new CMS active nearfield monitors at 125th AES

CMS monitors by Focal Professional Based upon Focal proprietary driver technology, the new CMS 65 and CMS50 are two new active nearfield studio monitors to be introduced at the 125th AES convention, San Francisco , booth 1108, October 2-5, 2008. The superbly finished aluminium die-cast enclosures of the new monitors provide unconditional rigidity while internal damping and bracing prohibit the monitor from adding unwanted colorations.
Focal's unique Al/Mg (Aluminium/Magnesium) inverted dome tweeter combines both, ideal lightweight mass and high damping, resulting in a tweeter that easily extends up to 28khz (–3db), with a close to perfection pulse response.
The Polyglass bass driver combines hollow micro-balls of glass to a pulp cellulose cone thus permitting a very rigidity to mass ratio of about ten times better than polypropylene and easily exceeding Kevlar.
These bi-amplified active nearfield monitors provide 165 watts (CMS65) and 130 watts (CMS50) and benefit from the smooth sound of two high end class AB amplifiers.
Designed to be versatile and matching any broadcast, post-production or recording studio, the Focal Professional CMS 65 and CMS 50 feature separate HF and LF shelving adjustments; Desktop Notch correction filter controlling first reflection when the speakers are located over the mixing board; rubber decoupling stand; and spikes to tilt the speakers and adjust soundstage height.
