Focal present their most highly articulate subwoofer to date. Forming a key part of their brand new ST6 range, meet the Sub 12.

For producers and sound engineers looking for deep sub-bass, here is the answer: Sub12. Made in France in Focal’s own workshops, this subwoofer delivers unrivalled articulation, impact and depth. Thanks to 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.
In addition, there are optimised braces and a front vent inspired by Focal’s Trio11 monitors, as well as internal and external vents to reduce noise and distortion. At the back, a full set of bass controls can be used to perfectly adjust the settings for any system – low-pass, high-pass and variable phases – making Sub12 a truly remarkable professional tool.

Sub 12 Features

In addition to its large laminar vent eliminating noise and distortion, Sub12 is equipped with a disengageable automatic standby mode, and offers variable user controls for low-pass, high-pass and phase, allowing ultimate precision for obtaining the perfect studio sound. Lastly, for greater practicality, large handles on the sides of the cabinet allow this product to be easily transported by two people.

Reaching all the way down to a delightful 30Hz, Sub 12’s large laminar port is free from port noise or distortion, while its ‘W’ oriented cone operates with excellent sound neutrality.

Sub 12 Flexibility

The rear controls on Sub12 include switches for polarity, +4dBu or -10dBv sensitivity, automatic standby bypass, input and Throughout LFE. Sub12 also has an input and output for a switch on the stand, for connecting the bypass for a single Sub12 or simultaneously across several Sub12 subwoofers.

Pick up and go

For portability around the studio, Sub 12 also features a built-in handle alcove designed to make shifting the unit between locations a breeze.
