Reveal The Invisible

Sopra N°2 pushes back the limits of sound reproduction in terms of transparency in a very compact enclosure. This loudspeaker is equipped with best midrange drivers ever developed by Focal, with the NIC (Neutral Inductance Circuit) and TMD® (Tuned Mass Damper) technologies. Compact, modern, pure design, character...: all these essential factors are also combined to ensure perfect integration into your interior. Sopra N°2 is perfectly at ease in rooms measuring up to 320ft² (30m²), and is even ideal for larger rooms measuring up to 750ft² (70m²).

Features

  • Midrange driver with TMD® suspension and NIC magnetic circuit
  • IHL Beryllium tweeter (Infinite Horn Loading)
  • Drivers developed and manufactured by Focal in France

Infinite Horn Loading

Focal's Beryllium tweeter features an incredibly light and extremely rigid dome, that delivers a transparent and dynamic sound. Its main limitation comes from the compression of air in the cavity behind it. But the requirement for Sopra to be compact meant that as much of the cabinet as possible had to be used for the bass. They had to explore other options for loading the tweeter, which led them to come up with the IHL system. The "IHL" system enables to load the Beryllium tweeter, respecting the compactness demand of the speaker. The rear wave of the tweeter is delicately and gradually absorbed to avoid any distortion.

Neutral Inductance Circuit

Since the beginning, Focal has always had a great interest in the magnetic circuit, an essential aspect of a speaker drive unit. The precision and detail of audio reproduction depend on the stability of the magnetic field. NIC technology (Neutral Inductance Circuit) permits to control of the magnetic field and finally enables it to master it in order to limit distortion. It decreases the effects of distortion and gives the sound a very high-definition and an unprecedented dynamic.

Tuned Mass Damper

Focal has revealed resonances that alter definition in the suspension which connects the cone to the basket. The solutions are already known for increasing the damping properties of the suspension all result in an increase of the mass which consequently alters definition. The answer came from a technology used in earthquake-resistant skyscrapers and which is also used for the suspension on racing cars. "TMD" technology consists of optimizing the suspension profile which controls the resonance in order to drastically reduce distortion and increase the definition of bass and midrange.

Details

The main theme of Sopra is deliberately uncluttered, though it still offers connoisseurs the opportunity to enjoy all the small details. The grille with an incremental meshing motif protects the Beryllium tweeter and gives it a strong identity. This motif is repeated for sealing the curved back panel of the middle section. The terminal board, the thumb nuts and the adjustable spikes have all been specially designed for Sopra, as have the few visible screws, all of which were manufactured by watchmaking experts.
