Focal Alpha 80 8" Active 2-Way Studio Monitor

The Focal ‘Alpha 80’ is an active 2-way nearfield professional studio monitor featuring an 8" (210mm) woofer with a polyglass cone and a 1" (25mm) aluminum inverted dome tweeter. It also features a large laminar port, a 40W amplifier for the tweeter, 100W amplifier for the woofer, and has a frequency response of 35Hz to 22kHz (+/- 3dB).
