NEW - Barefoot MM27 with Focal Drivers (joke!)

Hi!

Over the past few months, we had lots of requests from recording engineers who purchased Focals but liked the Barefoot design as well.

We found a fairly easy way to install Focal drivers in a Barefoot cabinet. We keep the same amplifiers and we only have to make few modifications to the crossover to make it work.

The product is still in a prototype phase and we haven't figured how we can do this modification on the field. The results so far are pretty promising.


New Drivers:
2 x 10" "W" Woofers (from the SM11)
2 x 5" "W" Mid-Bass (new drivers from the car audio line)
1 x 1" Beryllium tweeter (same as the Twin6)

We also some request about the MM35 but before working on this, we'll wait to get some feedback on this one.

We'll do some other announcements very soon! stay tuned!

Simon @ Focal

I guess the cat's out of the bag now. The truth is -- Focal and Barefoot Sound are merging. The new company is going to be called "Fo-oot" and we're all very excited!!!

It was my understanding that we would be keeping this whole thing a secret. But I guess it's as good a time as any to announce the new SMM-seven-11.



We've replaced the passive radiator configuration of the SM11C with dual active subs and MM27 amplification.

Available at a conner store near you.

Thomas, you left out the most important part. That the first 20 members of Gearslutz that send Simon @ Focal a nude picture of themselves will receive 50% off.

What a coincidence. Yamaha just announced a special mod (limited time) for the MM27's too. Insiders say that their goal for these monitors, often described as 'NS10s on steroids', was to turn them into 'NS10s on steroids suffering hemorrhoids'.
Yamaha claims to have perfected this goal.

This was indeed a lot of fun

I thought that it would be funny to do a little "Tribute to Barefoot" for April's fools

Thomas has done a great monitor that I think pushes every manufacturer to do better!

Now, I'll admit that the NS10 version of the Barefoot is way funnier that the Focal version good one man!!

However, Avant has already done it with their mini-towers

Cheers!

I think our customers may fight over their product preferences more than we do

I often talk with Klaus from Adam at most shows, Thomas Barefoot, the guys from K+H, Ben Lily from ATC, Chris Fischera from Blue Sky, etc.

There's definetely more fun that competition!

Simon part of that I thinks is speaker guys are not all trying to build some copy of something from way back, also the fact that in some cases one may be using someone else's drivers sometimes custom sometimes not. Also speaker guys get the fact that someday they maybe somewhere else and lets not burn bridges!
You guys also have no problem saying yeah they have a great product this is our take!
The top mic guys are like that its the middle ground where the pissing happens because on top there is a lot of sourcing from one an other or the same source!
Also everyone is always thank full when someone helps move those big boxes!
Now whenare we going to see some Focal Pro Passive Stuff?heh
