The intention was a return to the very essence of acoustics for those who are passionate about music. F cones are characterised by their natural sound, with low coloration, their richness of reproduction in the midrange register and their tighter bass. The result is a more cohesive sound, improved dynamics. Aria 948 offers a classic speaker in a modern design. This is the ultimate loudspeaker, suitable for all rooms, yet optimised for rooms measuring over 30m2.
For the TNF tweeter, we have brought two major evolutions to our aluminum/magnesium tweeter. The suspension between the dome and its bracket uses Poron, a material with shape memory. This suspension method is directly derived from the famous Utopia Beryllium tweeter, making it possible to reduce distortion by a factor of three in the 2-3kHz range, where the human ear has very great sensitivity. The inverted dome’s spatial characteristics and very low directivity already make it greatly superior to the conventional domes used by our competitors. This guarantees an incredibly stable sound stage which makes the listening position much less critical.
The flax cone are made in France exclusively by Focal since 2013. With their original design, the cone are entirely oriented towards acoustic performance. They are made of high quality flax fiber enclosed by two thin layers of glass fiber. F cone are characterized by their natural sound, with low coloration, their richness of reproduction in the midrange register and their tighter bass.
