Optimized acoustic engineering

Focus tops and subs are superbly engineered to work together seamlessly and provide maximum efficiency. 

The two-way Focus 12 and Focus 15 models employ High-Q 100° x 10° long-throw waveguide horn geometry to project the sound to the back of large listening areas. All this comes together to create a point-source array system!

For more details of wiring connections for either Passive mode or Bi-Amp mode, please check the User Manuals.

Passive & Bi-amp mode

Focus 12 and Focus 15 full range models feature Passive and Bi-Amp mode switching.

In PASSIVE mode, a single amplifier can be used to power all drivers inside the Focus.  The full frequency range is put into the loudspeaker and the Focus’ internal crossover separates the frequencies, delivering the right frequencies to the right driver.  This means that the single amplifier is powering both the HF compression driver and the LF transducer.  The internal crossover takes care of both the frequency and power separation.

In BI-AMP mode, two power amplifiers can be used.  This gives you the advantage of being able to select the best power amplifier specifications for each driver inside the loudspeaker.   In a BI-AMP configuration, an external crossover is used to separate the frequencies and this splits the signal to the dedicated LF amplifier and the HF amplifier.

This way, each amplifier is only working on the given frequency range and, in turn, is powering the corresponding driver inside the loudspeaker.

Super PLY

All Focus models use premium Baltic birch plywood construction.

Not only does this create a solid and durable cabinet, but it also contributes to the overall sound and character.

Focus series are also covered in our most durable and hard wearing Rhino Rock paint finish. This ensures that a Focus loudspeaker will always look as good as the day you unboxed it.

Super fly

Focus series hardware allows you to fly in a line-array configuration, fly independently and in pairs or stack PA’s on top of subs. 

Focus adapts perfectly to whatever challenges your venue presents you with!

SOnic Impact

At peak output levels a single Focus 15 can pump out 135 dB SPL and maximum power handling is rated at 2800 watts peak. Focus subs put out an equally impressive 146 dB Max SPL of pounding bass with a maximum power handing capacity of 8000 watts peak. 

Need more? Just double up! The Focus V-Tech side-by-side driver placement maximizes mutual coupling and boundary-effect reinforcement to move massive amounts of air and push the beat to the soul of your audience.

 

About the monitor

For applications where space is at a premium, Focus 12M is a small footprint, high power versatile monitor.

Housed inside a 15mm birch plywood cabinet, Focus 12M delivers the high power output to impress and encourage any performer.

The finest drivers have been selected.  With an LF driver that boasts a 3.0” voice coil and a custom made Wharfedale Pro HF compression driver with a 2.0” voice coil, the transducers of Focus 12M are ready for the extreme volumes demanded by installers, rental companies and tours.

But Focus 12M has also been designed to be versatile.  A 35mm pole socket in its base allows setups to be configured in a variety of ways.  Focus 12M can be a floor monitor or a side fill depending on the requirements.

Durable rubber feet also contribute to the overall quality, keeping the monitor physically, and sonically, stable.
