Born in 1979 in Saint-Etienne in France, this year Focal celebrates its 40th anniversary. In tribute to four decades of passion, innovation and excellence in the High-Fidelity sector, the French brand has developed some exceptional products, which it will present during the 2019 edition of the High-End exhibition in Munich.
SPECTRAL 40th & SCALA 40th – HOME AUDIO TAKES CENTRE STAGE!
The speaker driver and hi-fi loudspeaker have always been at the heart of Focal’s trade. Therefore, it’s no surprise that it has created two unique loudspeaker models to mark its anniversary.
Spectral 40th is a unique made in France product which embodies Focal’s heritage and its modern technological advances. With its loudspeakers equipped with the legendary K2 Power cone and its pure Beryllium tweeter, Spectral 40th is a high-performance 3-way bass-reflex loudspeaker with an amazing neo-retro style.
Scala 40th is a very limited edition (4 pairs only) of the high-end Scala Utopia Evo 3-way floorstanding loudspeaker. To celebrate its 40 years in business, Focal has chosen to adorn this made in France product with a Black Silver finish. The mirror effect of the side panels combined with the elegant matte Graphic Black front panel gives it an extremely elegant and modern look.
F40th – 40 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE IN YOUR CAR
Focal’s teams have always been committed to Car Audio and have put cars centre stage as well, by designing F40th. This unique kit includes Flax sandwich cone speaker drivers and a pair of pure Beryllium inverted dome tweeters: major Focal innovations, designed, developed and manufactured in Focal’s workshops. A 5-channel amplifier and an 8-way audio processor (DSP) for electronics complete the kit. The ultimate combination of Beryllium and Flax, which until now could only be found in the Kanta range of hi-fi loudspeakers, is now, and for the first time, available in an in-car audio kit! This complete kit delivers a powerful and precise sound, and also looks amazing thanks to the black bowl and flax cones, which are a global Focal signature.
SOLO6 BE 40th – PROFESSIONAL STUDIOS WITH A KILLER LOOK!
Focal creates cutting-edge monitoring loudspeakers for creative types, designed to delight composers, sound engineers, musicians and more. In order to share its passion for music with professionals, and now to celebrate its anniversary, the brand presents Solo6 Be 40th! The iconic Solo6 Be active studio monitor has been given a black coating and has been stamped as a special ’40 year’ edition. It’s a timeless, very elegant and discreet look for this monitor, which has been designed, developed and made in France by Focal. Behind this brand new finish, Solo6 Be 40th continues to deliver transparency as well as an unrivalled degree of definition and precision of stereo image for its price category. It manages to do this thanks to the Beryllium inverted dome tweeter and the bass/mid speaker driver composed of our ‘W’ composite sandwich cone.
