Focal Chora Surround
Chora Surround is a compact loudspeaker that adds side and rear channels to your Home Cinema system for an even more immersive experience. The sound comes from all sides, accentuating the realism of scenes and heightening your sensations. Made in France in Focal’s workshops, Chora Surround uses the same Slatefiber technology seen in the Chora speaker drivers, ensuring high-quality sonic coherence with the other loudspeakers in the line. Indeed, devised and designed to complete your audio system, this product combines perfectly with the Chora 826-D Dolby Atmos® loudspeaker and the Chora Center loudspeaker. And to increase the depth of sound, Focal engineers have also developed the Sub 600P subwoofer.
The loudspeaker fixes quickly and easily to the wall thanks to the wall attachment supplied. And thanks to its black MDF finish, its magnetic grille and sleek design, it will be a seamless yet stunning addition that fits perfectly into your listening room.
Our technical expertise and industrial mastery enable us to offer music lovers a generation of leading loudspeakers within their price range. Chora embodies the mastery of the overall design process, and is confirmation that, now more than ever, the manufacturing of affordable products demands an investment in high-performance production tools. Benefiting from technological advances developed for the Utopia III range, such as the inverted dome tweeter, the Chora line incorporates a brand new Focal technology for its midrange and bass speaker drivers: the Slatefiber cone, a composite sandwich cone made from thermoplastic polymer with recycled non-woven carbon fibers. Manufactured in our workshops in France, this cone boasts the beautiful “slate” effect, for even better damping, rigidity and lightness, the “essentials” of a good speaker driver. Alongside the TNF Aluminium/Magnesium tweeter with its silky treble, the Slatefiber woofers deliver powerful bass and midrange a lot of precision. Finally, thanks to the tilt of the loudspeaker stand, Time Alignment provides an optimal soundstage, more focused on the listener. Every detail of the Chora’s appearance has been carefully thought out and meticulously designed. In addition to a sleek, modern design, the line presents a choice of three on-trend finishes to satisfy all tastes and to blend seamlessly into interior living spaces. With Chora, there is no shortage of sound and visual harmony for a quality listening experience in your own home, and a true High-Fidelity experience.
The TNF Aluminium/Magnesium tweeter
SOFT AND 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 spatialisation 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 fibres, 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.
