The Focal Aria 936 is a 3-way loudspeaker featuring an elegant design and a small footprint. The Aria 936 is very linear and with impressive dynamics and thanks to the 3 woofers, it is naturally intended for listening in stereo for monitoring-type activities. This floorstanding speaker is also ideal for setting up a spectacular Home Cinema system.
The goal was a return to the very essence of acoustics for those who are passionate about music. F 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. The Aria 936 features a classic and modern design and is appropriate for rooms measuring from 270ft2 (25m2) and from a listening distance of 10-12ft (3m - 3.5m).
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.
