Focal Chora 806 2-Way High End Bookshelf Speaker
"Compact but Powerful"
The Chora 806 loudspeaker showcases meticulous manufacturing and design. Let yourself be transported by the delightful, dynamic musical quality emitted by its 6 1/2” bass / midrange speaker driver, equipped with the exclusive Focal Slate-fiber cone. Alongside the TNF Aluminum/Magnesium tweeter with its silky treble, the “slate” color of the speaker driver makes it an attractive yet high-performance solution.
Perfectly balanced, this bookshelf speaker is ideal for rooms of up to 269 ft² .
If you've ever dismissed the idea of using a bookshelf speaker to anchor your entertainment system, the Focal's Chora 806 will challenge your expectations. Building on the lessons learned while designing its world-renowned Utopia flagships, Focal invented Slatefiber, an innovative woofer material capable of startlingly fast dynamics and remarkable precision. As a result, Chora 806 delivers the kind of serious "jump factor" that will draw you into your music or movie soundtracks via sharp focus and holographic presentation.
The TNF Aluminium/Magnesium Tweeter Softy & Precise Treble
The surround linking the dome to its stand uses a memory foam material called Poron. This surround is directly derived from the Utopia’s famous Beryllium tweeter and reduces distortion by a third between 2,000Hz and 3,000Hz, the ear’s high-sensitivity range. The spatialization and very low directionality of the inverted dome allow silky trebles to be heard from any point in your listening room.
The Slatefiber Cone - Perfectly Balanced Sound
Slatefiber technology, exclusive to Focal, involves the use of recycled, non-woven carbon fibres applied as a sandwich between two layers of thermoplastic polymer. In their quest for perfection, Focal engineers have opted to use non-woven carbon fibers, all pointing in the same direction to achieve even greater rigidity and better damping.
Manufactured in the Focal workshops using an ultra-modern industrial tool, the “slate” effect of the cone provides better damping and rigidity, but also lightness – the three “essentials” of a good speaker driver.
A Sleek Modern Design
The Chora range offers a modern design, the slate colour of the Slatefiber cone adding a final refined, authentic touch.
The stand ( optional ) is tilted for Time Alignment which provides an optimal soundstage, more focused on the listener.
Chora is available in three finishes: Black, Light Wood and Dark Wood. On-trend colours that blend into different interiors and lend them a unique aesthetic signature.
