Focal Professional Studio Monitors

Manufacturer's Description from Focal

The CMS 40 is the most compact monitor of the Focal Professional range. Its size/extended bass frequency ratio ensures excellent versatility. This monitor guarantees ultra-realistic voicing, whilst offering optimum acoustic integration in a small room. Its design permits a listening position from 16" (40cm), even in the least advantageous locations (ex. proximity to reverberating surfaces). The CMS 40 is the perfect tool for post-production and home studios. And even in the biggest and best studios, it proves to be an excellent second monitoring system, allowing one to quickly check how the mix translates onto smaller speakers.
