Focal Aria 906 2-Way Bass Reflex Bookshelf Speakers feature drivers with Flax Sandwich Cones. These cones are composed of natural flax fiber in a sandwich structure for a natural sound with low coloration. Flax fiber has low elasticity and high flexural rigidity. In these bookshelf speakers, the flax is enclosed between two sheets of glass fiber creating a remarkably stiff substance that helps damping and velocity, all qualities needed in a midrange speaker.
The flax cone is made exclusively by Focal in France. It's twice as light as fiberglass because the fiber is hollow. This is a key element in overall sound quality because the cone makes vibrations in response to the signal from the amplifier inside the speakers.
Technological innovations continue with the excellent aluminum/magnesium tweeter in the Aria 906. The TNF tweeter by Focal is a marvel of engineering. The dome and its bracket are suspended using a special material, called Poron, that remembers its shape. This suspension method reduces distortion in the bookshelf speakers by a factor of three at the frequencies that the human ear is the most sensitive. This advancement increases the range of sounds that come through clearer, expanding your audio enjoyment.
The other creative benefit with the Focal TNF tweeter is the inverted dome which creates spatial advantages. The bookshelf speaker’s engineering creates very low directivity and improves frequency response compared to conventional domes. This ensures the sound is stable and gives more flexibility when positioning the speakers in your home.
These bookshelf speakers are packed with innovative technology on the inside, encased in a sleek, clean-looking cabinet. With their walnut finish and unique leather-finished front panel, these speakers make a stunning addition to any room. Focal developed these loudspeakers to operate as both stereo and home cinema equipment with a look is ideal for both traditional and more contemporary interiors. Functional as well as stylish, the cabinet's magnetic cloth frame and ultra-rigid MDF construction result in neutrality and very little vibration.
Focal Aria 906 2-Way Bass Reflex Bookshelf Speakers are designed for high quality at low frequencies. Bass reflex systems increase the efficiency of the speakers by enhancing the reproduction of sound at the lowest frequencies. The vented cabinet reduces distortion and stabilizes the Flax sandwich cones, helping to reach those deep bass frequencies.
