Focal Chora 826-D High-Performance Dolby Atmos Floorstanding Speaker
Focal's Chora Series speakers use innovative new drivers that are designed and made in-house for gorgeous, detailed sound. The 826-D floor-standing speaker is made specifically for high-performance Dolby Atmos/DTS:X™ home theatre systems. It has front-firing drivers that project sound directly toward you, plus an additional up-firing driver that bounces the sound off your ceiling for enveloping overhead sound effects. (The upward-firing driver will connect to a dedicated overhead channel on your compatible home theatre AV receiver.)
Focal's latest woofer design
The secret ingredient of the new Chora speakers is the Slatefiber woofer, made of recycled carbon fibres. Carbon fibres are very rigid — important for any speaker cone material. But they go beyond rigidity. These cones are lighter, more responsive, and have better damping than the Polyglass woofers of the previous Chorus speakers.
The 826-D is a 4-way design that includes a 6.5" midrange, two 6.5" bass drivers and their renowned aluminium/magnesium TNF tweeter plus a full-range upward-firing 5” driver with Al/Mg tweeter on top.
Trickle-down tweeter tech
For the Chora's high frequencies, Focal chose their TNF inverted dome tweeter. This design is known for a wide soundstage that's not seating-position critical. One new development in this iteration is the use of a material called Poron, which suspends the tweeter from its mount. This suspension is trickled down from the Beryllium drivers in Focal's flagship Utopia speakers. Think of it as memory foam. By maintaining its shape as the driver moves, it significantly reduces distortion for clearer sound.
Gorgeous lean-back cabinet
Time alignment is a fancy way of saying that the sound from each front-firing driver should hit your ears at the same time. That's why the Focal 826-D's cabinet is angled, for sound that's accurate and locked in. The speaker is available in three beautiful finishes that will make a statement before you even turn on your amp.
