The Focal Sub 12 is a powerful and highly accurate subwoofer with a 13” high excursion woofer with sandwich W-cone material powered by large 600 Watts RMS amplifier.
The Focal Sub 12 has incredible articulation, impact, and depth. Because of its 13" (33cm) speaker driver with 'W'-shaped cone and very high excursion, as well as its BASH amplifier with 600W RMS and 1000W peak-to-peak power, the sound reproduction is more impactful and faithful than ever before.
There are also optimised braces and a front vent inspired by Focal's Trio11 monitors, as well as internal and external vents to reduce noise and distortion. Sub12 is a truly remarkable professional tool thanks to a full set of bass controls at the back that can be used to perfectly adjust the settings for any system – low-pass, high-pass, and variable phases.
Composite ‘W’ Sandwich Cone
Focal's 'W' composite cone is made in France and allows the frequency response curve to be perfectly optimised. The signal transmission speed within the material is controlled by the cone's unique properties of lightness and rigidity. The modulation of the thickness of the structural foam allows for very precise control of the damping quality of the cone. It produces total sound transparency, a very low distortion rate, and an excellent phase response when listening.
In addition to its large laminar vent, which eliminates noise and distortion, the Sub12 has a deactivate automatic standby mode and variable user controls for low-pass, high-pass, and phase, allowing ultimate precision in achieving the perfect studio sound. Finally, for added convenience, large handles on the cabinet's sides allow this product to be easily transported by two people.
Polarity, +4dBu or -10dBv sensitivity, automatic standby bypass, input, and Throughout LFE are all available on the Sub12. Sub12 also has an input and output on the stand for a switch that can connect the bypass for a single Sub12 or multiple Sub12 subwoofers at the same time.
