The Aria 948 loudspeaker symbolizes the return of the ‘true’
acoustic loudspeaker. A new type of 3-way loudspeaker with 81/4’’
(21cm) speaker drivers effortlessly providing intense and controlled bass. The
intention was a return to the very essence of acoustics for those who are
passionate about music. ‘F’ cones 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, improved
dynamics. Aria 948 offers a classic and modern design.

This is the ultimate loudspeaker of the range for rooms
measuring from 320ft2 (30m2) and from a recommended
listening distance of 12ft (3.5m).


For the TNF tweeter, we have brought two major evolutions to
our 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
our competitors. This guarantees an incredibly stable sound stage which makes
the listening position much less critical.

The flax cone are made in France exclusively by Focal since
2013. With their original design, the cone are entirely oriented towards
acoustic performance. They are made of high quality flax fiber enclosed by two
thin layers of glass fiber. F cone are characterized by their natural sound,
with low coloration, their richness of reproduction in the midrange register
and their tighter bass.

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
