This monitoring speaker establishes itself as a reference thanks to the precision of the stereo image, its capacity to reproduce each of the micro details of the audio signal, as well as unconditional respect of the original dynamics. One of the major SM9 innovations lies in its offering of 2 monitoring speakers in only one and unique cabinet. The SM9 is thus composed of 2 monitors: a 3 way monitor and a 2 way monitor.

As a 3-way monitor, it offers a frequency response from 30Hz to 40kHz for total control of the audio signal, permitting extremely precise work. As a two-way monitor, it offers a frequency response from 90Hz to 40kHz, permitting the check of mix transfer quality on systems with limited frequency response in the bass frequencies - for example TV sets, computers, cars, iPod docks or any multimedia system. This monitor also permits checking of the midrange register, which is very hard to equalize and balance in terms of sound level compared to the other information contained in the audio signal. The activation of this monitor is made by setting off the FOCUS mode on the side panel.

The SM9's pure beryllium inverted-dome tweeter produces a high output without requiring high-energy input and without increasing directivity, and is capable of covering 5 full octaves from 1,000 Hz to 40 kHz. This is a distinct sonic advantage regarding new audio formats. This tweeter allows for unprecedented performance and delivers outstanding dynamics, thanks to its amazing magnetic field (2.1 teslas).

Focal has been developing the technologies of composite sandwich cones for years, and the "W" process (Glass/Foam/Glass) provides a true optimization of the frequency response by fine tuning of mass, rigidity and damping parameters. The balance between these 3 fundamental and often contradictory parameters is at the basis of the outstanding sound neutrality of these speakers.

Passive radiator, high-performance amplification
In order to reproduce the lowest frequency range within a very small volume without any air flow noises, the SM9 is equipped with a no-compromise, custom designed “W” passive radiator. The SM9 uses low-distortion class AB power stages for low (400W), mid (100W) and high frequency (100W) channels, entirely respecting the dynamics of the low level audio signal and ensuring total transparency.
