2.5-way Floorstanding Speaker by a Renowned French Speaker Manufacturer
Using Focal’s own Slatefiber cone, the mid and bass driver work in together to generate a dynamic sound reproduction and a perfect bass impact.
Perfectly capable of filling your room, with full midrange and remarkable power management. 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.
The 816 is ideal for medium-sized rooms.
Delicate Yet Precise High Frequency Sounds
A material called Poron links the dome to its stand, a type of memory foam substance. This surround is directly derived from the Utopia’s famous Beryllium tweeter and reduces distortion by a third between 2,000Hz and 3,000Hz. This is a frequency range that the human ear is highly sensitive to.
One key advantage of the domes is that the tweeter-emitted sounds have a very low directionality. This means the speakers can be heard from a wide area within the room and gives the Chora range a wide sound stage.
The bass-midrange drivers contain recycled non-woven carbon fibres to create extremely effective dampening. This gives the speaker drivers their slate-effect finish and their characteristically dynamic, precise sound.
