Focal Shape Twin Dual Powered Studio Monitor

With dual 5" drivers dedicated to bass and low mids, Shape Twin powered monitors give you Focal accuracy and high SPL in a stunning small-footprint design.
The Focal Shape Twin studio monitor is the standard bearer of the Shape series and stands out through its excellent rendering of the whole audio spectrum, in addition to its broad frequency response in the low end, and to its high SPL considering its size. The compact design makes it easy to integrate, even into the most cramped of rooms. Its 2.5-way design gives it a decisive advantage when it comes to controlling the bass and lower mid-range registers which are the hardest to control in small rooms. This monitor will express its full potential from a listening distance of three feet away (1 metre).

"Excellent monitors"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
First time Focal buyer. I was on the fence about buying a high end monitoring system, simply because of the price. However, when I finally pulled the trigger on these, I was far from disappointed. After the 10 hour burn in, these babies are smooth as butter. Incredible stereo image. Fantastic low and low mid response. Everything translates perfect with these monitors.Granted I do have bass traps and acoustic panels in my first reflection panels. I also placed them close to the back wall of my home studio. These things are perfect in every way (to me at least).Extremely happy and now a believer in Focal.
