Focal Alpha 65 EVO Powered Studio Monitor

Focal's Alpha 65 takes a giant leap forward with the EVO model -- updated with a Slatefiber cone for greater accuracy and wide dispersion in a 6.5" monitor.

Using cutting-edge materials and engineering practices, the Alpha 65 Evo has been designed from the bottom-up to improve on its predecessor's performance. The Alpha 65 Evo is sonically and functionally versatile, making it the perfect solution for any guitarist, drummer, synthesist, DJ, producer, or engineer. At the center of the Alpha 65 Evo is a Slatefiber driver.


Get a closer look at what's new in the Alpha Evo series in this video from Focal:


The unique characteristics of the Slatefiber driver have dramatically improved the overall dynamic range, impact, and low frequency extension compared to its predecessor. The cone is even hand-made in their workshop in Saint-Etienne, France. The updated 1" Aluminum inverted dome tweeter recreates the smallest nuance with exacting detail without a hint of harshness or fatigue.

Beyond impressive sonic characteristics, the Alpha 65 Evo is more functional than ever. The monitor offers RCA, TRS, and XLR inputs, as well as convenient mounting points for use in immersive audio scenarios or even tight spaces. It's a great solution for any space and any budget.

I was between the A7Xs I heard in person and these which I never heard before. I took a chance and couldn't be more satisfied with my purchase. I love them. So versatile and super duper detailed. From the moment I plugged them in - smooth, consistent, rich sound. Considerably lightweight yet feels solid. Great balance of the frequencies and I can hear everything vividly. They get pretty loud too. The tweeter design makes imaging 3D-like and so smooth that it's not fatiguing one bit. I can't wait to start mixing in these because I can already hear what I been missing coming from KRK Rokits. Great for pros or those learning the craft. Buy them if you are considering (and have the space). Best monitors you can get for the low no cap plus they look sexy with the grilles on.
