Alpha studio monitors are specifically designed for music creation. Flagship of the line, Alpha 80 is particularly ideal for producing music which is rich in bass or which requires high power reserves.

Take your compositions to a whole new level!

Thanks to Focal’s exclusive technologies, its expertise in terms of speaker drivers and to the mechanical design of Alpha studio monitors, optimum integration is guaranteed. The environments for music production are very diverse, they are not optimised acoustically, or have only been done so insufficiently, and the listening distances vary greatly. Whether for confined spaces, rooms with poor acoustic qualities or for styles of music, which require neutrality, dynamics and high SPL, Alpha studio monitors are the solution for you.
Right from the first stages of R&D, the Alpha line was designed as a solution to these problems whilst focusing on one objective in particular: improving the quality of music production by giving the user better control over the audio spectrum.

Technology at the service of music creation

This is reflected in the choice of technologies used, such as the inverted dome tweeter, that provide a very linear treble, reveal the slightest imperfections of equalisation even from a short distance away and also prevent auditory fatigue ; the Polyglass cone woofer, which gives excellent damping qualities, ensuring flawless neutrality over the entire bass/high‑midrange frequency spectrum, and a remarkable transparency to the midrange frequencies  ; and the unique bass‑reflex design with large double front ports, which improves acoustical integration even in confined spaces nor installed near a front wall.

Finally each Alpha studio monitor is equipped with two class AB amplifiers. The high‑current amplifiers enable complete control of the dynamics of the audio signal. This also allows for listening at high volumes without distortion.
