The ‘W’ composite sandwich cone permits total optimization of the frequency response curve, thanks to the total control of three key parameters: lightness, rigidity and damping. These unique characteristics of lightness and rigidity provide control of the signal transmission speed inside the material.
Due to its incredible rigidity, Beryllium represents the ultimate material for a tweeter dome. After two years of research and development, Focal produced a world first: a pure Beryllium inverted dome, able to cover more than five octaves. You will improve the perception of transients and other micro details. As well, the linearity of the speaker’s response curve is mainly a function of three opposite parameters: lightness, rigidity and damping.
Electra 1000 Be loudspeakers feature an innovative technology called IAL (Infinite Acoustic Load). This technology enabled us to design a tweeter with a very wide frequency range capable of extending very low down in frequency response, for relaying the midrange much earlier. This technology allows the frequency range to which the human ear is sensitive to be reproduced by the ultra-light tweeter with exceptional definition.
When style and technology meet, harmony arises. Le design de Electra 1000 Be design has been entrusted to Pineau & Le Porcher agency in order to create a pure line of simple natural where each style element would harmonize with the technical necessities to create the best speaker possible. Each curve is studied to bring a tangible response and correction to a given problem.
The tweeter housing and coupling is a moulded, solid piece of aluminum alloy, which represents an ultra-stable mechanical reference, with absolutely no vibration. Every aspect of Electra 1000 Be 2 has a purpose.
