French audio master, Focal, has presented the 1000 Series, what they’re calling “game-changing” in-wall and in-ceiling speakers and subwoofers. The new flagship range comes three years in the making and embodies the essence and savoir-faire of Focal: innovative speaker science, exclusive technology implementation, and exquisite French design and manufacturing. The 1000 Series offers a discreet alternative to traditional hi-fi and home cinema set-ups, with no performance compromise. Each French-made speaker features an innovative, flexible design – with both the installer and end customer in mind.
· Raises integrated speakers to new performance levels, through use of flagship speaker technologies – including Beryllium tweeters; ‘W’ cones – as featured on Focal Utopia home speaker range.
· Allows for seamless sonic combination of Focal’s traditional and integrated speakers.
· Flexible design: Wall speakers feature adjustable driver – angle them in any direction towards the optimum listening position.
· Simple to fit: Ceiling speakers use Focal’s patented ‘Easy Quick Install’ system, for tool-free integration.
· Scalable subwoofer integration: Wall speakers can be paired with 1, 2, 4 or 6 subwoofers (while using only one channel of amplification), to match the room size and SPL levels desired. Speakon cables provided for simpler speaker/sub connectivity.
· Magnetic, ready-to-paint speaker grilles for the perfect visual integration in every room.
· Suitable for the majority of locations: In-wall speakers offer superlative performance despite being less than 10cm deep. For even greater flexibility, optional on-wall frames will be available soon.
