FOCAL - "THE SPIRIT OF SOUND"
Since its foundation, Focal-JMlab has grown to become one of the main manufacturers of high fidelity, integration and multimedia systems. Headquartered in Saint-Etienne, France, it is now internationally recognized as a world leader in the design and manufacturing of loudspeakers for the home, speaker drivers for the car, monitor speakers for recording studio and headphones.
The company’s key strength is its complete integration and quality control of the loudspeaker manufacturing process, from the design of drive units,cabinets and crossovers to the assembly of the finished product. This delivers a consistency of performance that stands far above its rivals. Focal maintains an intense, continual program of research and development into drive-unit technologies and improving sound quality; many patents have been registered.
ELITE SERIES. UTOPIA. W SANDWITCH CONE
Extreme Technology to Sound Sensuality
Both radical and exclusive, the Utopia Be range is above all, the result of an extraordinary human endeavor with the aim to reach the top level of sound reproduction. Working without constraints or limits allowed us to introduce and manufacture a tweeter with a pure Beryllium inverted dome, a genuine world’s first, that pushes forward the quality of musical reproduction. This material, 100 times more expensive than gold, is largely responsible for Focal's sound quality revolution. With the capability to reproduce frequencies up to 40kHz, this real and enormous technological achievement results in musical reproduction of the very tiniest detail. In addition, by lowering the resonant frequency to 1.2kHz, a smooth matching is made between the tweeter and the mid-range, creating a sound stage with incomparable width and precision. The design of the composite “W” sandwich cone for the mid-range drivers and subwoofers allows complete control of a wide range of parameters, including rigidity, lightness, and damping. This assures a more accurate and realistic sound. Utopia Be could not have been created without a demanding and unique mix of technical innovation, hand-made precision and the full in-house control of the entire manufacturing process. Utopia has set the new standard in musical quality reproduction.
ELITE SERIES. K2 POWER . KEVLAR CONE
The Spirit of Sound... with a Kick
Developed to allow you to reach the very top levels of acoustic reproduction and bass, the K2 Power range symbolizes Focal’s expertise. Combining an evocative mix of pure sound control with detailed dynamics, speed and sophistication, the “Power Hi-Fi” concept, originally developed by Focal, has all the hallmarks of a reference line. Our signature yellow Aramid fiber inverted dome tweeter combines smoothness, precision, and clarity, optimizing imaging and producing an astonishingly loud, clear, and realistic soundstage. This key component makes the difference from the competition.
Another element essential to Focal’s reputation for creating the very highest sound quality are the cones and subwoofers in the K2 Power line. They combine very high power handling and extremely detailed sound thanks to the exceptional rigidity of the K2’s composite sandwich cone technology. Built with precision, impact and the culture of car audio, K2 Power represents our passion to build and deliver the best.
