Product Information

Audiophile Loudspeakers

The Aria 926 embodies the home 3-way floorstanding loudspeaker. This musical and expressive loudspeaker is easy to install. All kinds of music lovers will be thrilled with its acoustic qualities. The Aria 926 is by definition an affordable audiophile loudspeaker.

The intention was a return to the very essence of acoustics for those who are passionate about music. Flax cone are characterized by their natural sound, with low coloration, their richness of reproduction in the midrange register, and their tighter bass. The result is a more homogeneous sound and improved dynamics. Aria offers a classic and modern design.

It is ideal for rooms measuring from 215ft2 (20m2) and from a recommended listening distance of 10ft (3m).

Poron Suspension for Soft Treble

For the TNF tweeter, Focal has brought two major evolutions to their aluminum/magnesium tweeter. The suspension between the dome and its bracket uses Poron, a material with shape memory. This suspension method is directly derived from the famous Utopia Beryllium tweeter, making it possible to reduce distortion by a factor of three in the 2-3kHz range, where the human ear has very great sensitivity.

The inverted dome’s spatial characteristics and very low directivity already make it greatly superior to the conventional domes used by other brands. This guarantees an incredibly stable sound stage, which makes the listening position much less critical.

Flax Cone, So Original

The flax cones are made in France exclusively by Focal since 2013. With their original design, the cones are entirely oriented towards acoustic performance. They are made of high quality flax fiber enclosed by two thin layers of glass fiber. The lightness of the fiber satisfies the criteria of high internal damping, high velocity, and high flexural rigidity. Flax is twice as light as fiberglass, because the fiber is hollow. It also has very low elasticity which makes it ideal to increase the flexural rigidity of a sandwich structure.

Innovative Technology for Truer Sound

You live for that moment when you turn on your home audio system, crank up the volume and feel the thump-thump-thump of the bass as it pulses through your body. It’s a sensation that only comes with premium grade floor speakers and the Focal Aria 926 3-Way Bass Reflex Floorstanding Speaker is ready to deliver with new technology that ensures excellent sound clarity and superior acoustics.

Consistently Distortion-Free

No dead zones here—your music will come through loud and clear regardless of where you are in your living space. This floorstanding Speaker is designed to surround the listener in pure, distortion-free sound with a three-way bass reflex system that uses two 6.5-in bass and one 6.5-in midrange cones to deliver a consistently superior listening experience. 

Crank Up the Volume

You know great sound isn’t going to happen if it goes fuzzy and distorts each time you turn up the volume. That’s why the Aria 926 tower speaker uses Focal’s evolutionary new TNF tweeter with inverted dome for greater stability and flexibility when positioning the speakers in your home. It also uses Poron material suspension for enhanced memory and reduced distortion in the crucial two–three kHz range where our ears are most sensitive to sound. You’re sure to be impressed with the quality of this innovative speaker.

Superior Sound Projection

Focal has been a leader in developing acoustic equipment for close to 40 years so it's no surprise they’ve transformed the way sound is delivered through their standing speakers by using high-quality flax to build a better cone. The Flax cone is made exclusively by Focal in France and consists of flax fiber enclosed between two layers of glass fiber in a sandwich structure. This fiber is super lightweight for ideal internal damping and superior acoustics. Since its more rigid than the typical fiberglass cone it offers less distortion for a truer, richer sound.

High Fidelity at Its Best

Whether you’re settling in to listen to some favorite tunes on your home audio system or catch some recent releases on your home theater, the Focal Aria 926 3-Way Bass Reflex Floorstanding Speaker shows you take sound quality seriously. This single floor speaker is ideal for use in spaces up to 215 sq. ft. and delivers stable, distortion-free sound that is so true you’ll think you’re sitting in the middle of a movie theatre.

Beautiful Design

The Focal Aria 926 brings super sleek design and a minimal footprint for powerful yet discreet sound delivery, while its smart prime walnut finish is an easy fit with any room décor. The leather-finished front face delivers absorbent and acoustic diffraction qualities while adding to the speaker's sophisticated appearance. Quick and easy set-up makes this serious tower speaker a great option for the audiophile who wants to take their home audio system to the next level.

Aria 926 Floor Standing Speaker - Each (Dark Walnut)
Bass is enough to shake my entire 2600sq ft house. The entire frequency range is so well balanced that a center channel has no need in my setup. I'm such a picky listener yet I'm absolutely satisfied. If you want some additional low freq extension and db boost around 35hz at the cost of a tiny db loss at around 100hz then stuff the forward bass port with a high density insert. Totally unnecessary though in my case since the bass is already scary in my 19x17 high pile carpeted room.

Aria 926 Floor Standing Speaker - Each (Dark Walnut)
Got these about 1000 dollars off. And they are an amazing set of speakers. I had the q750s and had bowers and wilkins. Those speakers dont come close to this level of clarity. Im finally happy with my purchase

Focal Aria 926
Focal Aria 926 Dark Walnut:

First of all, wow, what a speaker!

I bought this as an upgrade from my B&W 604-S3 towers bought in 2003 when I was 18. The B&Ws were a great speaker for my college years. They played LOUD with a ton of low-end, which is ultimately why I recently grew bored with them. They didn’t have the detail or soundstage I grew to desire.

After deciding to upgrade, and having Focals in my truck combined with friend’s recommendation, I began looking into their Aria range of home audio loudspeakers. It didn’t take me long to be very interested based on how many glowing reviews I found.

Anyways long story short, I decided on the 926 because the 948 reviews consistently noted how difficult they were to position, which I believe is due to the larger 8” woofers, and the 936 just seemed too tall with the addition of the 3rd woofer.. I was planning to pair these with a sub anyways, so any missing bass response would be filled in.

My problem was I did not have a local shop to demo, so I had to take a huge risk and purchase blind. World Wide Stereo was excellent, great price, fast freight shipping, and a return policy (that I will certainly not need!).

After about 30hrs of ‘run-in’, these speakers are breathtakingly fun, detailed, with a huge soundstage and crystal clear imaging. They do lack a tad in the low-end at first, but begin to open up A LOT after about 20hrs of run-in.. They are a tad ‘bright’, but this dissipates as well. That said, be careful to pair these with warmer components, cartridges, etc that are less analytical/bright, so as to not exaggerate this... Not a hard task, but as you will see in other reviews, these speakers are not exactly for the novice or those who don’t like to tweak..

Happy every additional moment with these speakers!

Price-Performance Killers
I bought a pair of the Aria 926's 2 years ago in walnut. The natural, clear, detailed musicality with great bass is excellent.Pair them with quality electronics & you will be thrilled, especially given their price.I have them in a Primaluna Dialogue Premium HP amp-preamp separates tube system with a Marantz SA8005 SACD player. Let me tell you, FANTASTIC! These Focal's are the real deal, with performance equal to or rivaling speakers costing thousands more, like 2 - 3 thousand! All types of music sound great,I LISTEN to mainly classic rock. French designed,engineered, & produced by a company that delivers quality in spades. Buy them & you will know! Mike
