Focal Complete Alpha Evo Line and add Sub One

Posted on: Thursday 10th of February 2022

Focal Alpha Evo 80 and Sub OneFocal has completed its Alpha Evo nearfield monitor line with two new speakers – the Alpha 80 Evo and Alpha Twin Evo – and added a subwoofer (Sub One) to its range at the same time. 

The Alpha 80 Evo and Alpha Twin Evo models join the company’s existing Alpha 50 Evo and Alpha 65 Evo models, which were released last year, and use the same Slatefiber cone design – made by Focal in France from recycled carbon-fibre – and ‘laminar’ ports. The new models, however, differ thanks to a new 1/4″ (6.35mm) TRS jack input, a disengageable automatic standby mode, and inserts for wall mounting.

In terms of amplification, the full analogue design utilises monitors are equipped with two class D amplifiers. The ‘80 Evo is bi-amped at 80W and 35W to its 8” woofer and 1” aluminium inverted dome tweeter respectively, while the Twin Evo  offers two 50W amps for its twin 6.5” woofers, with an additional 35W for the high frequencies. Both monitors feature offer connection via XLR, RCA and TRS.

The Sub One utilises twin 8” (20cm) Slatefibre woofers with a front-firing two-port design, powered by 200W RMS amplifier into a compact design, with options for its low-pass crossover, a volume control and footswitch bypass.

The monitors feature a 5/8″ (15mm) -thick MDF cabinet, and incorporate internal braces.
