Innovative Technology

Enjoy the heart-thumping sensation that only a three-way bass system can deliver with the Focal Aria 948 3-Way Bass-Reflex Floorstanding Speaker. In a return to the "true" acoustic speaker, Focal uses cutting-edge technology to deliver enhanced stability for consistently excellent sound clarity and superior acoustics.

Big Woofers for Big Bass Sound

The Focal Aria 948 3-Way Bass Reflex Floorstanding Speaker is designed to surround the listener in pure, clear sound with a three-way bass reflex system that uses two 8.25-in bass and one 6.5-in midrange speakers for an intense, superior listening experience that turns every seat in the house into a great one. This speaker is built to impress.

Inverted Domes for Reduced Distortion

Crank up the volume without fear of losing clarity. The Aria 948 tower speaker uses Focal’s evolutionary new TNF tweeter with an inverted dome for greater stability and flexibility when positioning the speakers. The tweeter also has a Poron material suspension for enhanced memory, reduced distortion and a softer treble. For the listener, this means improved clarity in the crucial two–three kHz range where our ears are known to be most sensitive to sound. 

Superior Sound Projection

As a leader in developing acoustic equipment for close to 40 years, it's no surprise that Focal has transformed the way sound is delivered through their range of standing speakers with the introduction of flax fiber cones in place of the usual fiber-glass version. 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. Flax is lighter weight, which makes it the ideal material for internal damping and ultimately superior acoustics. Because of its rigidity, the Flax cone prevents distortion for consistently richer sound reproduction.

Powerful Design

This classic tall speaker offers a decidedly edgy take on the typical boxy floor speaker. With its tall, sleek lines and walnut finish, the powerful Aria 948 floorstanding speaker earns its place in your home. The leather-finished front face delivers absorbent and acoustic diffraction qualities while adding to the speaker's sophisticated appearance. Quick and easy setup makes this serious tower speaker a choice pick for the non-techy music lover who wants to take his home audio system to a higher level.
