The Focal Aria 926 is an affordable audiophile loudspeaker which incorporates the home 3-way floor standing loudspeaker. This musical and expressive loudspeaker is easy to install and all kinds of music lovers are bound to be impressed with its acoustic qualities.
The goal was a return to the very essence of acoustics for those who are passionate about music. Flax cone are characterized by their natural sound, with low coloration, their richness of reproduction in the midrange register and their tighter bass. The outcome is a more homogeneous sound, improved dynamics. Aria 926 also features a classic and modern design. It is ideal for rooms measuring from 215ft2 (20m2) and from a recommended listening distance of 10ft (3m).
PORON SUSPENSION FOR SOFT TREBLE
For the TNF tweeter, Focal has brought two major evolutions to the 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 which makes 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 other brands. This guarantees an incredibly stable sound stage which makes the listening position much less critical.
FLAX CONE, SO ORIGINAL
The flax cones are made in France exclusively by Focal since 2013. With their original design, the cones 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.
The lightness of the fiber fulfills the criteria of high internal damping, high velocity and high flexural rigidity. Flax is twice as light as fiberglass, because the fiber is hollow. It also has very low elasticity which makes it ideal to increase the flexural rigidity of a sandwich structure.
