Focal Chora 806 Bookshelf Loudspeaker (EACH)

A superlative entry in a crowded price bracket. It sounds fantastic with a transparent, neutral tonality, a wide soundstage, and dynamics to get your toes tapping.

2-WAY BOOKSHELF LOUDSPEAKER

The Chora 806 loudspeaker showcases meticulous manufacturing and design. Let yourself be transported by the delightful, dynamic musical quality emitted by its 61/2” (16.5cm) bass/midrange speaker driver, equipped with the exclusive Focal Slatefiber cone. Alongside the TNF Aluminium/Magnesium tweeter with its silky treble, the “slate” colour of the speaker driver makes it an attractive yet high-performance solution.

The TNF Aluminium/Magnesium tweeter - SOFT AND PRECISE TREBLE

The surround linking the dome to its stand uses a memory foam material called Poron. This surround is directly derived from the Utopia’s famous Beryllium tweeter and reduces distortion by a third between 2,000Hz and 3,000Hz, the ear’s high-sensitivity range. The spatialisation and very low directionality of the inverted dome allow silky trebles to be heard from any point in your listening room.

The Slatefiber cone - PERFECTLY BALANCED SOUND

Slatefiber technology, exclusive to Focal, involves the use of recycled, non-woven carbon fibres applied as a sandwich between two layers of thermoplastic polymer. In their quest for perfection, Focal engineers have opted to use non-woven carbon fibres, all pointing in the same direction to achieve even greater rigidity and better damping.
Manufactured in the Focal workshops using an ultra-modern industrial tool, the “slate” effect of the cone provides better damping and rigidity, but also lightness – the three “essentials” of a good speaker driver.
