Elegant and refined, the Chorus 716 tower speaker is built using 2.5-way technology in a premium hifi configuration: the two 16.5cm woofers cover the bass together (only the upper speaker is used for the mid-range), for double bass power, perfect for rooms up to 320ft2 (30m2). Sound comes into its own in your listening room, with a dynamic mid-range, doubled bass and high power. There is a front port low on the speaker to reduce distortion and ensure faithful reproduction of bass sounds.
Advanced design for natural, high-definition sound
Chorus 700 series speakers boast Focal’s latest 1′ aluminium/magnesium inverted dome tweeter. Inverting the dome optimizes the connection between the voice coil and the dome, maximizing efficiency and precision. Plus, the tweeter’s new lightweight polyurethane micro-cellular foam suspension allows the dome to move more freely for lower distortion, greater accuracy, and smoother sound.
The 716’s solid low end and dynamic midrange come courtesy of two Focal 6-1/2′ Polyglass woofers. These drivers are created by depositing a layer of hollow silica glass microbeads over a layer of cellulose pulp. This unique material combines the warm sound of cellulose fibre with the incredible strength of glass, for a stiff-yet-lightweight cone that responds rapidly with extremely low resonance. A butyl rubber surround helps stabilize cone movement and provides excellent long-term reliability. Tying the drivers together is Focal’s OPC (Optimum Phase Crossover) crossover network for precise, natural, and stable imaging and soundstaging.
Stylish, vibration resistant cabinets
All Chorus speakers feature thick MDF cabinets with heavy internal bracing and non-parallel inner wall structure to resist performance-robbing vibrations. The cabinets have a traditional look that’s softened by slightly curved front panels. An attractive woodgrain vinyl or textured leatherette/high-gloss black finish allows the Chorus speakers to easily integrate into just about any d_cor.
Built in-house for better quality and value
The speaker drivers in every Chorus speaker are built in-house at Focal’s facilities in Saint-Etienne, France. Why is that important? Because it gives Focal complete control over every aspect of design, manufacture, and quality control – resulting a consistently superior, high-value product.
