Designed to meet the needs of near-field monitoring, this monitor combines an ingenuous design and numerous settings optimized for the acoustics of small listening rooms. Shape Twin stands out through its excellent rendering over the whole audio spectrum, its broad frequency response in the low end, and its high SPL considering its size. The compact design makes it easy to integrate even into the most cramped of rooms. Finally, its 2.5-way design gives it a real advantage when it comes to controlling the bass and lower mid-range registers which are the hardest to control in small rooms. Shape Twin's five innovations present a remarkable tonal balance, with very wide and precise stereo imaging. The low frequencies are well defined as well as controlled. The low-mid and mid ranges provide a true neutral sound.

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)
