New Alpha Monitors and Sub From Focal

Focal completes its Alpha Evo line with new Alpha 80 Evo and Alpha Twin Evo monitors, and introduces a brand-new subwoofer: Sub One.

Alpha 80 Evo and Alpha Twin Evo join Alpha 50 Evo and Alpha 65 Evo, released last year. With the line now complete, Focal is fully equipped to meet the needs of professionals looking for high volume and rich infrasound extension. These monitors stand out for their Slatefiber cone — made by Focal in France from recycled carbon-fibre — their front sided laminar ports and their reliability.

VERSATILE TOOLS OF THE TRADE
The Alpha Evo monitors boast a new 1/4″ (6.35mm) TRS jack input—in addition to the XLR and RCA analogue inputs—, a disengageable automatic stand-by mode and inserts for wall and ceiling fastening: a truly versatile range (Mix, Mastering, DJ, Broadcast). In terms of amplification, the monitors are each equipped with two class D amplifiers. The high current capacity of these allows full control of the signal dynamics. It also allows high volumes to be reached without distortion. Each of the loudspeakers picks up the smallest details in the mix, across all musical styles.

DESIGN AND CABINET-MAKING
The monitors feature a 5/8″ (15mm) -thick MDF cabinet, and incorporate internal braces to ensure it is highly robust, even at the highest levels of acoustic pressure. The bass-reflex design has been used to ensure easy acoustic integration in even the most cramped spaces. In terms of aesthetics, the traditional cube monitor shape makes way for rounded contours. The side panels create a robust and modern design which contributes to excellent sound and a unique and harmonious signature across the Focal collections.

THE LONG-AWAITED SUBWOOFER: SUB ONE
Sub One and its 200 watts RMS are one of the biggest newcomers to the 2022 Professional Collection and is a testament to Focal’s spirit of innovation. Thanks to its precision and extremely low distortion, Sub One provides an ideal partner for the Alpha Evo and Shape lines. For the speaker drivers, the engineers have chosen double-skinned Slatefiber cones: the two aligned cones offer even greater rigidity, ideal for a subwoofer. Finally, thanks to its front- firing ports, Sub One is easily positioned.
