The key word for this 8” woofer is versatility. Thanks to Focal's new ‘M'-profile 'W' sandwich cone combined with the TMD® surround, it is capable of covering an extremely broad frequency range, playing as well low, to bring you excellent dynamics as it is to climbing up to the high-mids to make a perfect transition with the 3.5WM midrange or the TBM tweeter.
'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 Utopia drivers and is built around a progressive section that reproduces all the impact of the bass whilst optimising the linearity, precision and dynamics of the sound.
