Designing a 6.5” woofer that perfectly combines extreme performance, high-end design and shallow depth is a real challenge. Focal has succeeded, by combining the best of their latest technologies: ‘M'-profile 'W' sandwich cone, TMD® surround, progressive spider and coupling it with a unique basket design, inspired by French architecture. The result is simple: excellence at all levels.
'M'-profile 'W' sandwich cone
The new, patented, ‘M'-profile cone is the result of many years of research and expertise in materials and their geometry. The innovative ‘M’-profile, made from a single piece, means it is incredibly rigid and perfectly combines the three criteria essential for creating an “ideal” speaker driver: rigidity, lightness and damping. The result is an extremely linear frequency response, a low distortion rate and better sound dispersion.
Upon listening, this cone delivers striking realism and level of detail, that transports you into the heart of music.
Originally developed for the Sopra line of high-fidelity loudspeakers, the TMD® (Tuned Mass Damper) surround has a unique profile, designed to better control the effects of resonance and to drastically reduce the distortion associated with deformations of the cone. The speaker driver takes advantage of this patented technology by spreading better defined and very realistic midranges’ frequencies.
The progressive spider used on all our Utopia drivers is built around a progressive section that reproduces all the impact of the bass whilst optimising the linearity, precision and dynamics of the sound.
