Product Overview
The CMS 40 is the most compact monitor of the Focal Professional range.
Its size/extended bass frequency ratio ensures excellent versatility.
This monitor guarantees ultra-realistic voicing, whilst offering optimum acoustic integration in a small room.
Its design permits a listening position from 16" (40cm), even in the least advantageous locations (ex. proximity to reverberating surfaces).
The CMS 40 is the perfect tool for post-production and home studios.
And even in the biggest and best studios, it proves to be an excellent second monitoring system, allowing one to quickly check how the mix translates onto smaller speakers.

Inverted dome tweeter

The inverted dome tweeter - a Focal hallmark - is perhaps the perfect transducer.
This design permits very high-efficiency, precision and energy.

Inverted dome

The particular advantage of the inverted dome tweeter of our Studio Monitors is the optimization of the mechanical coupling between the voice coil and the dome.
The voice coil is fixed at mid-height on the dome and uniformly moves the cone entire surface.
The positive dome is only joined at its edge, causing it to be inactive beyond 16kHz for a flexible surface.
The inverted dome directly radiates into the air, with maximum efficiency, which is translated by an extremely precise soundstage.
The dome's response curve is clearly more linear than that of any positive dome. It provides better space dispersion and very low directivity, contrary to ribbon tweeters.
The inverted dome tweeter offers unequalled dynamics, enabling sound engineers to very precisely control compression.

The image precision (height, width and depth) is outstanding and makes the positioning of each element very easy, as well as allows one to exactly assess the reverb tails.

Aluminum/magnesium tweeter

Magnesium possesses great damping qualities, Aluminum great rigidity and the two in alloy can greatly reduce distortion.
This unique marriage of metals offers several advantages.
The impulse response is incredibly rapid yet benefits from a very short settlement time and excellent damping.
This enables the tweeter to extend its frequency response beyond 28kHz (-3dB)…

This configuration produces a precise, analytical sound and an extremely deep soundstage.
The frequency response curve linearity is also remarkable in that it ensures perfect neutrality.
When listening, the treble frequencies are dynamic and detailed.
The Aluminum/Magnesium inverted dome tweeter then combines perfectly with the Polyglass woofer in a perfect tone synergy.

Polyglass cone

Polyglass technology, exclusive to Focal, consists in applying molten glass microballs on a cellulose pulp cone.
This process combines an excellent paper damping with glass rigidity.
The rigidity index exceeds even that of a single skin Kevlar® and is almost ten times superior to one of polypropylene.

The mass/rigidity/damping ratio adjustment results in outstanding linearity of the frequency response curve, all from the inherent design of the cone.
This innovation also greatly increases definition in the midrange.
