Focal Professional introduced its latest product the CMS SUB.
It is an active subwoofer designed to extend the frequency response of the CMS studio monitors. Its very high efficiency and dynamic capabilities guarantee a perfect integration with the CMS50 & 65 monitors. The CMS SUB offers tight and controlled bass, capable of reproducing every nuance and detail. Its great neutrality and dynamic range make adjusting EQ and compression settings on your tracks an absolute breeze. Thanks to the large front laminar port, the CMS SUB ensures a perfect reproduction regardless of the listening level, and the numerous settings facilitate its integration into even the smallest recording studios.
The 11″ Polyglass® cone woofer used in the CMS SUB is both very light and extremely rigid for a neutral and distortion-free response. This incredible weight-to-rigidity ratio is obtained by applying a thin layer of hollow glass spheres on top of a cellulose-based cone. The high excursion capabilities of the CMS SUB woofer offer tight and controlled bass, able to reproduce even the most minute detail. The CMS SUB woofer was designed to be extremely efficient, to make the most out of amplifier headroom, making sure that you can hear the slightest changes to compression settings.
The CMS SUB features stereo inputs and outputs to facilitate the connection of a pair of CMS monitors. A dedicated LFE input allows the use of the CMS SUB in a multi-channel system. The subwoofer's LO PASS settings have been optimised for an optimal integration with the CMS 50 & 65 permitting a quick and easy setup. Phase inversion, phase adjustment and a mute switch can be remotely controlled by a standard foot pedal.
The CMS SUB is available from October 2009. Its public retail price excluding taxes is 650 euros.
