What We Think

Focal has always elegantly combined industry-leading monitor technology with incredibly classy and sleek designs, and the Trio6 Be monitor is absolutely no exception. In fact, after hearing them for ourselves, we decided it was time to part ways with our trusty Twin6 Be pair and upgrade to a set of Trio6s simply because they sounded THAT good. The Twins always blew us away with their mid-range detail and their smooth, natural response (among many other things), but after just a few minutes with the Trio6s, it was clear Focal found a way to translate even more detail across the entire frequency spectrum while still maintaining that naturally flat response that is absolutely required in a trusted pair of mixing monitors. 
While we trusted the Twins, when we were working on a lot of synth bass or BIG low-end material, we felt a sub was necessary. Others users, including Focal, felt similarly. That said, when designing the Trio6s, correcting this was a priority. Let’s just say they succeeded with flying colors. In our listening tests and while doing some initial work on them, it was clear there was even more mid-range detail and the lows were present and powerful, to the point that nearly all setups will not require an additional subwoofer. Whether you’re doing orchestral work, singer/songwriter recordings, all the way to EDM production or beatmaking, the Trio6s have you covered. 
The ability to adjust the tweeter and midrange driver panel for both vertical or horizontal placement is always a welcomed feature, providing you with a more flexible and future proof monitor were you to change the layout or furniture setup of your studio.
Also, I mean, just look at these things! Massive, sleek, powerful and professional - simply having these in the control room sets the mood for professional recording. And when you’re client first lays eyes on them, they’ll instantly know they’ve chosen to work in a world-class recording studio. I’d be lying if I said I’m not looking forward to blowing the minds of our repeat clients when they come back for their next session.
And if their impeccable sonic performance and stunning visuals weren’t enough, Focal included their revered “FOCUS” technology, which allows you to immediately bypass the 8” subwoofer to convert the Trio6 from a 3-way system, to a full-range 2-way system. This allows you to have both your main mixing/mastering pair of monitors AND your reference set in one single monitor pair, saving you precious space and cash. 
As you can tell, we’re already DEEPLY in love with the Trio6 Bes. When you’re considering monitors within this price range, these should be the frontrunners of your search. 

Manufacturer's Description from Focal

Essentially, the Trio6 Be is a three-way speaker with a 1” tweeter, a 5” woofer, and an 8” subwoofer. Yet, switching to FOCUS mode reconfigures Trio6 Be into a two-way monitor.

The Trio6 Be was designed to meet the standards of the most demanding engineers. This dual monitor is the new reference in its price range owing to its extreme neutrality, its precise stereophonic imaging, and its ability to resolve the most minute sonic details, while its Class G amplifiers deliver SPL levels to suit all musical styles.

Switching to FOCUS mode reconfigures Trio6 Be in two-way mode.


1” tweeter, a 5” woofer, and an 8” subwoofer 

When utilised to its full potential, the Beryllium tweeter reaches up to 40kHz and the 8” subwoofer extends low frequencies down to 35Hz. This offers engineers complete control of the audio signal. 

The 8” W composite sandwich cone subwoofer is complemented by its large port integrated into the front baffle, making it easy to position the monitor near the front wall without saturating the ports and maintaining excellent low-frequency linearity. Its large front port guaranties consistent performance regardless of SPL levels. It also allows a positioning closed to a wall without wall boost effect, allowing an easy integration even in small rooms.

The 5” W composite sandwich cone woofer is installed in an isolated chamber within the cabinet that prevents the sympathetic activation of its other speakers while optimising its acoustic performance. Two front-facing ports provide bass reflex, enabling the woofer to perform identically in both two-way (90Hz – 2.5kHz) and three-way (250Hz – 2.5kHz) configurations. 

The 1” pure Beryllium inverted dome tweeter provides numerous advantages, including wide dispersion, amazing frequency response linearity, quick dynamics, and unrivaled impulse response. 


1” tweeter and 5” woofer 

As a two-way speaker, Trio6 Be employs only the 5” woofer and the tweeter, limiting frequencies to between 90Hz and 20kHz. This configuration provides the perfect compromise when checking the quality of the mix for playback systems with limited frequency response, such as TVs, PCs, cars, and portable speaker systems. The frequency response curve of the two-way configuration is identical, though less extended, to its three-way curve, allowing for a perfect comparison that preserves the stereo image. Focusing on this critical middle-frequency range facilitates a good mix and enables the engineer to ensure that the levels are just right. A footswitch (not included) activates this configuration remotely from the listening position.

A ¼” input jack on the rear panel receives the trigger signal from a remote pedal, while a ¼” output sends a link to the input on a paired monitor. 

Most single button guitar amplifier footswitches are compatible.


Trio6 Be may be used vertically or horizontally to optimise positioning thanks to an adjustable aluminum baffle housing the woofer and tweeter.

This rotating baffle is capable of rotating 360° in 90° increments, making it one of the most versatile speakers to position.
