Focal Aria 936 3-way Floorstanding Speakers - Seamless, life-sized sound from top to bottom

The Focal Aria 936 produces a big, seamless soundstage filled with tantalizing musical detail. Focal's Aria series features advanced technologies originally developed for the company's acclaimed Utopia models, providing expressive, audiophile sound at more down-to-earth prices. The Aria 936's trio of flax fibre woofers produces exciting mid-bass and low-frequency impact to enhance your music and movies.

Unique cone material combines old and new

Speaker makers continuously search for new and better materials for drivers. An ideal driver material has three qualities:

  1. lightweight, so it can accelerate quickly
  2. rigid, so that it moves like a piston, without bending
  3. well-damped, so that unwanted vibrations don't colour the sound

In their pursuit of sonic excellence Focal made a surprising discovery, that Woven flax can form the core of a very rigid yet lightweight speaker cone and as luck would have it some of the world's finest flax grows in fields near Focal's headquarters.

Focal creates this unique cone by sandwiching a layer of hollow flax fibres between two thin layers of fiberglass. In the Aria 936, the 6-1/2" midrange and all three 6-1/2" woofers are made of this composite. 

Inverted dome tweeter looks different, sounds terrific

The Aria series also features Focal's 1" aluminium/magnesium inverted dome tweeter. Inverting the dome brings more of its surface area closer to the voice coil. That means the voice coil can be smaller and lower in mass. Focal has found that this reduced mass allows the dome to move faster than a conventional dome, for better high-frequency response.

And the tweeter's lightweight Poron "memory foam" suspension improves damping, which reduces distortion in the critical 2-3kHz range by a factor of three, compared to a typical suspension.

The inverted dome's spatial characteristics and wide dispersion are further enhanced by the waveguide plate it's mounted on. In the horizontal plane, the tweeter's frequency response varies by only ±0.5dB. The result is an incredibly stable soundstage, even for listeners not seated in the central sweet spot.

Stylish, vibration-resistant cabinet

All Aria speakers feature ultra-rigid MDF cabinets with sturdy internal bracing and non-parallel sides. Focal takes these steps to eliminate the unwanted vibrations that lead to "boxy" colorations in the sound. The handsome cabinets have a traditional look, but with a few unexpected touches — a leatherette finish on the front, and a glass top surface.
