Focal’s new flagship monitor: Trio11 Be

Posted on: Friday 22nd of February 2019

Focal Professional’s new top-of-the-range monitor, the Trio11 Be, was revealed at NAMM 2019. A three-way design capable of maximum SPL of up to 118dB at 1m (according to Focal), the Trio11 Be has a 5″ mid-range driver on a special mounting rotatable in 90-degree increments for vertical or horizontal use, a 10″ high‑excursion woofer and Focal’s usual inverted beryllium dome tweeter. The monitor features newly developed distortion-reduction technologies, including what Focal refer to as an NIC, or Neutral Inductance Circuit, to ensure a stable, uniform magnetic field in the mid-range driver, and tuned mass dampers on its surround, which minimise unwanted noisy resonances.

the loudspeaker employs the brand’s latest acoustic and electronic technologies, which are claimed reduce distortion even further. TMD (Tuned Mass Damper) technology surrounding the 5” driver offers more control and less distortion; NIC (Neutral Inductance Circuit) technology creates a stabilised magnetic flux, and optimised vents promote dynamic control and improve bass definition.

Like its predecessor the Trio6 Be, The Trio11 Be is also usable in so-called Focus mode as a two-way monitor, in which case only the woofer and tweeter are driven. This feature, which can be activated and deactivated by a connected footswitch, allows users to gain a sense of the likely response on more limited two-way reproduction systems for mix-checking purposes. Finished in dark-red ash-burr-veneer, the Trio11 Be retails for £6199 a pair. Focal is distributed by Focal-Naim America (formerly Audio Plus Services) in the US and Canada, the Trio11 Be street price is $3,999  each, the new monitors are set for March 2019 availability.
