AES NY 2019 — Focal issue special Solo6 Be monitor

Limited-edition run of the first of the company's Professional range of monitors is shown at AES

Focal is celebrating 40 years in the loudspeaker business this year, and the professional monitor division is celebrating by releasing a limited edition of the company’s best-selling compact monitor, the Solo6 Be, first sold in the early 2000s. The cabinet of the anniversary Solo6 Be features a special black finish on the side cheeks stamped with a 40th anniversary logo (see below), but is otherwise very similar in design to the standard version, except that a protective grille has been added to the beryllium tweeter, and the amplifier electronics have been tweaked appropriately to compensate. SOS News Editor Matt Bell got a look at the new speaker with Josh from Focal on their stand at AES, as you can see in the video above.
