Focal’s research is geared towards reducing distortion in every register. With Kanta, the treble register is reproduced by a new pure Beryllium tweeter. This IAL3 tweeter combines the principles of IAL (Infinite Acoustic Loading) and IHL (Infinite Horn Loading) tweeters, both of which help with the absorption of waves, thus lowering the tweeter frequency.
Our engineers have revisited their choice of ‘Focus Time’, which corrects speaker alignment, making them the same distance from the ear. The rear shell is made in one-piece integrally moulded wood. The Zamac base also brings out masses of character. With its spikes and cups, the base provides great stability from a very small footprint. Final details: the glass-covered top and magnetic grille fixings. When these are removed, they reveal the speakers’ flax cones, the final design touch that gives Kanta its unique look.
A wide range of combinations are available to fit into every interior space. The back cover is available in High Gloss black lacquer and Walnut veneer. For each of these there are four baffle colours, in two finishes. With the High Gloss black shell there are four baffles available: High Gloss Carrara White, Gauloise Blue, Solar Yellow and Black Lacquer. With the wood finish shell there are four baffles available: Matt Finish Ivory, Warm Taupe, Gauloise Blue and Dark Grey.
