" The music is full of energy, as full as it would be in the front row of a jazz club"..."Bass goes deep, deep enough to even satisfy movie lovers, the high frequencies are detailed and smoother than I would have expected coming from a Focal inverted dome and the midrange is brilliant at this price."

The Aria 948 floorstanding speakers are part of the Aria 900 high fidelity speaker range. The 900 range feature speaker drivers with Flax sandwich cones, TNF aluminium and magnesium inverted dome tweeters with Poron suspension, injected zamak baskets, carefully designed cabinets and crossovers. Focal have spared nothing to ensure that owners enjoy maximum listening pleasure.

The Aria 948 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. This is the ultimate loudspeaker of the range for rooms measuring from 320ft 2 (30m2) and from a recommended listening distance of 12ft (3.5m).

TNF Tweeter

TNF Tweeter

For the TNF tweeter, Focal have brought two major evolutions to their aluminium/magnesium tweeter. The suspension between the dome and its bracket uses Poron, a material with shape memory. The inverted dome's spatial characteristics and very low directivity already make it greatly superior. The frequency response has a variance of +/- 0.5 dB. This performance guarantees an incredibly stable sound stage which makes the listening position much less critical.

Flax Cone

Flax Cone

Focal cones are made of high-quality flax fibres core enclosed by two thin layers of glass fibre. They satisfy the key criteria of a high performance diaphragm high internal damping, high velocity of sound and high flexural rigidity. The cones are characterised by their natural sound, with low colouration, their richness of reproduction in the midrange register and their tighter bass.

Sandwich Technology

Sandwich Technology

Flax is twice as light as fibre glass, because the fibre is hollow. It is aesthetically beautiful and also has very low elasticity which makes it ideal to increase the flexural rigidity of a sandwich structure. Moreover, it can be obtained in non-woven bundles of considerable diameter and it can therefore produce the thickness required for a sandwich.

Aria Design

Aria Design

Aria has been conceived as an elegant piece of home furnishing; simple, with great stature, quality materials and soft shapes which capture the light and resist the passage of time. The glass on its upper face for strength, the leather finish to its front face for its absorbent and acoustic diffraction qualities.
