Focal Chora 816 Floorstanding Loudspeaker (EACH)
The Chora 816 model is a 2.5-way bass-reflex floorstanding loudspeaker. Its woofer and midrange/bass speaker driver, both equipped with the Slatefiber cone, work in perfect harmony for a voluptuous sound reproduction and a perfect bass impact. The sound finds its full dimension in your listening room, with a dynamic midrange and remarkable power handling. A front port is placed below the loudspeaker to reduce distortion and, thanks to the tilt of the loudspeaker stand, Time Alignment provides a soundstage focused on the listener.
Chora 816 is particularly well suited for Home Cinema listening and blends seamlessly into rooms of up to 323ft² (30m²).
CHORA: THE NEW LINE OF FOCAL LOUDSPEAKERS
Discover the very latest line of Chora acoustic loudspeakers, designed to make High-Fidelity accessible to as many people as possible. This new line brings Focal sound and technology into your home, with leading products in their price category.
Chora integrates speaker drivers manufactured in France and featuring an exclusive Slatefiber cone; the fruit of 40 years of acoustic research. Every detail has been meticulously thought out to meet expectations in sound reproduction and aesthetics.
A PRECISE SOUND
Alongside the TNF Aluminium/Magnesium tweeter with its silky treble, Slatefiber woofers deliver powerful bass and the midranges are very precise: no shortage of harmony here, while Time Alignment provides a sound image focused on the listener.
A LEADER IN ITS MARKET
The Chora range will exceed your expectations. With its meticulous design, high performance and three modern finishes to choose from, it is an undeniable leader in its price category.
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 specialization 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 fibers applied as a sandwich between two layers of thermoplastic polymer. In their quest for perfection, Focal engineers have opted to use non-woven carbon fibers, 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.
A SLEEK, MODERN DESIGN
The Chora range boasts a modern design, all lifted onto a tilted stand for Time Alignment, which provides an optimal soundstage, more focused on the listener. The slate colour of the Slatefiber cone adds a final refined, authentic touch.
