St.-Ètienne, France (February 6, 2018) – Focal launches two new important built-in speaker ranges, with the introduction of the all new entry-level 100 Series and additions to the mid-priced 300 Series. With both series offering a wide array of in-wall/in-ceiling models, stereo, AV and ambient music applications are catered for, with each model conforming faithfully to Focal’s signature sound.
Integration has become an important area of development for Focal and is steadily gaining amplitude in its overall loudspeaker range. This is a natural expansion into a market where all of Focal’s brand values can be implemented. Thanks to the acoustic qualities of both ranges, the integration line is aimed mainly at the home audio marketwith its discreet and compact design. Each speaker driver combines Focal technologies and acoustic expertise to offer very high levels of performance at competitive prices.
The new Integration line revolves around three key concepts to meet every need and expectation through a small range of products:
• Suitable for every room in the house
• Suitable for rooms of different sizes
• Suitable for multiple uses (sound systems, Home Cinemas up to 320ft²/30m²)
These new solutions integrate into the home with ultimate discretion, just like the in-ceiling loudspeakers of the 100 Series. Featuring an impressively compact design, the speaker driver’s basket and chassis have been designed as a single unit. The 100 Series is equipped with Focal’s proven technologies inherited from 35 years of expertise, such as the Polyglass mid/bass driver cone and the aluminum inverted dome tweeter. All models are suitable for a wide-range of applications, including humid environments such as bathrooms.
The 300 Series range is made in France and features exclusive Focal technologies, such as the famous Flax cone and the aluminum-magnesium inverted dome tweeter, providing sound quality that will impress even the most ardent audiophile. They also provide a major advantage when it comes to installation, which has been greatly simplified with the EQI system (Easy Quick Install). Whether they’re used as in-ceiling or in-wall loudspeakers, they require no tools to install, for unrivalled ease and speed of installation. These new products also meet the most essential criteria regarding use and installation: frameless, adjustable tweeters, magnetic grills, etc
These new loudspeakers are ideal for three main uses:
• Loudspeaker systems (corridor, living room)
• Stereo systems (bedroom, kitchen)
• Home Cinema systems (dedicated room, lounge)
Besides the launch of the entry-level 100 Series and the mid-range 300 Series, Electra is keeping its flagship range position. Other additional products (outdoor, subwoofer and amplifier) will be added to this line in the coming months. Note that the accessories required for installation (pre-mounting kit and fire barrier box) are already available.
