The Aria 948 loudspeaker symbolises the return of the ‘true’ acoustic loudspeaker. A new type of 3-way loudspeaker with 81/4’’ (21cm) speaker drivers effortlessly providing intense and controlled bass. The intention was a return to the very essence of acoustics for those who are passionate about music. ‘F’ cones are characterised by their natural sound, with low coloration, their richness of reproduction in the midrange register and their tighter bass. The result is a more homogeneous sound, improved dynamics. Aria 948 offers a classic and modern design.
This is the ultimate loudspeaker of the range for rooms measuring from 320ft2 (30m2)
PORON SUSPENSION for soft treble
The inverted dome’s spatial characteristics and very low directivity already make it greatly superior to the conventional domes used by our competitors. This guarantees an incredibly stable sound stage which makes the listening position much less critical.
Flax cone, so original
The flax cone are made in France exclusively by Focal since 2013. With their original design, the cone are entirely oriented towards acoustic performance. They are made of high quality flax fibre enclosed by two thin layers of glass fibre. F cone are characterised by their natural sound, with low coloration, their richness of reproduction in the midrange register and their tighter bass.
The lightness of the fibre satisfies the criteria of high internal damping, high velocity and high flexural rigidity. Flax is twice as light as fibreglass, because the fibre is hollow. It also has very low elasticity which makes it ideal to increase the flexural rigidity of a sandwich structure.
