Chora 816 | Loudspeakers
- Made in France
The Chora 816 combines an advanced tweeter design and a special cone membrane skillfully manufactured in France. It presents the French company’s renowned detailed and smooth sound accompanied by a very dynamic performance.
The Chora 816 includes an inverted dome aluminum/magnesium tweeter enhanced by Focal’s TNF technology. This component’s surround is made from a memory foam material called Poron, a design that comes from the Utopia series’ famous beryllium tweeter, which helps reduces by a third the distortions in the human ear high-sensitivity range. The tweeter’s performance is also enhanced by the carefully designed wave guide at its front, reducing its directivity and increasing its spatialization to produce silky trebles in any point of the room.
On the Chora’s woofer and midbass is Focal’s Slatefiber cone membrane. It consists in a combination of non-woven carbon fibers and thermoplastic polymer to achieve rigidity, lightness and internal damping. This membrane is skillfully manufactured in France and enables the drivers to produce more bass without adding distortions.
The combination of these components in the Focal Chora 816 makes it able to produce a dynamic performance in the midrange and perfect bass impacts. It boasts a remarkable power handling which helps it create a voluptuous sound reproduction even at higher volumes.
