This monitor can be used from 23" away (60cm), and they have astonishingly extended low end frequency response. Whether you have a room of less than 107 ft (10m2), or an installation where compactness is paramount, Shape 40 is the perfect solution. The innovations made to these studio monitors provide remarkable acoustic transparency. The redesigned tools distinguish themselves through the wide and extremely precise stereo image. The bass register is articulated and controlled. The lower mid-range and mid-range benefit from extreme neutrality, and without any masking effects, making equalization of these essential registers much easier. Finally, the tweeter is what's at the source of the very high definition. It efficiently reveals any hissing, and it's also very precise in the very high end.

Tuned Mass Damper
For the past 20 years Focal has been working to master the frequencies at which the cone becomes deformed, otherwise known as the "Break up" and in doing so have create the ultimate speaker. The speaker driver consists simply of two tubular rings on the suspension whose dimensions and position have been judiciously determined. This creates Tuned Mass Damper (TMD) technology and stabilizes the dynamic behavior of the surround according to resonance, thus avoiding deformation of the cone without afflicting the dynamics.

Neutral Inductance Circuit Technology
NIC technology, lies in a Faraday ring whose dimensions, materials, and positioning were optimized to make the magnetic field no longer affected by the position of the voice coil, by the amperage or the frequency of the current passing through it.

The Unique Qualities of Flax
F cones are made of high-quality flax fibers core enclosed by two thin layers of glass fiber. They satisfy the key criteria of a high performance diaphragm: high internal damping, high velocity of sound and high flexural rigidity.

  • Tweeter with very low directivity for a flexible listening position
  • Designed without a port, but with a double passive radiator, allowing it to be placed near a wall
  • Numerous settings for optimal integration
  • Accurate control, even in the very high end
  • Flax sandwich cone: controlled and well-defined bass, natural and detailed lower mid-range and upper mid-range ranges
  • Mounting mechanisms present on the back and underneath the loudspeaker: for installing on a table stand, a microphone stand, the ceiling or a wall (mounting accessories not supplied)
