Studio Monitor 8″ (20cm) 3-Way 100W


3-Way Monitor

Made in France, Trio6 is a 3-way monitor offering flawless transparency, precision, and dynamics. Thanks to its double Focus mode — 1 or 2-way — Trio6 is 3 monitors in 1.
This studio monitor is equipped with a Beryllium inverted dome tweeter, whose frequency response can extend up to 40 kHz. It also features a 5″ midrange woofer and a 8” subwoofer, made with composite ‘W’-cone and a 35Hz cut-off frequency. Like Solo6 and Twin6, Trio6 benefits from exclusive Focal technologies: TMD suspension, laminar venting, reinforced cabinetry, IAL, and more. Several other features complete this professional piece of kit: high-pass crossover, disengageable automatic standby mode, 160 Hz LMF crossover for console reflections, making Trio6 a benchmark studio monitor.


  • Beryllium inverted dome tweeter: very low directionality, excellent linearity and dynamics
  • Optimised baffle tweeter: excellent dispersion control
  • ‘W’ composite sandwich cone: sound neutrality, no distortion
  • Dual Focus Mode: three monitors in one: three-way monitor, two-way monitor (midrange woofer and tweeter alone) and full-range one-way monitor (midrange woofer alone)
  • Large laminar port: no port noises or distortion
  • Auto stand-by mode disengageable
  • Settings: activatable/deactivatable, LF shelving, HF shelving, LMF @ 160Hz


The ‘W’ composite cone is made in France by Focal and allows the frequency response curve to be perfectly optimised. This cone’s unique characteristics of lightness and rigidity control the signal transmission speed within the material. The modulation of the structural foam’s thickness provides very precise control of the cone’s damping quality. When you’re listening, it creates total sound transparency, a very low distortion rate and an excellent phase response.


The Focus Mode enables the loudspeaker to be converted into a one-way full-range monitor, providing a different speaker driver configuration accessed by simply pressing a pedal – as though there were a second pair of studio monitors with a reduced dynamic allowing the mix adaptability to be checked on smaller systems.


Solo6, Twin6 and Trio6 include a variable high-pass crossover and a 160Hz parametric crossover to reduce reflections caused by the console or desk. These monitors are also equipped with a high-pass crossover and a disengageable automatic standby mode, accessible via a switch and offering a simple and essential option for controlling the loudspeaker.


The design of the cabinets in the ST6 line uses a thick and robust material, allowing ever greater rigidity and damping to be achieved, with fewer vibrations and therefore less distortion.
