Focal Launches 1000 Series of Architectural Speakers and Subs

In-wall and in-ceiling models use tech from Utopia speaker range and use same form factor as 300 Series for easier upgrades.

Focal has announced its 1000 Series range of in-wall and in-ceiling speaker and subwoofer options. Made in France in Focal’s specialist workshops, the 1000 Series offers what the company calls “the ultimate discreet alternative to traditional hi-fi and home cinema setups.”

Benefits include:

  • Use of flagship speaker technologies — including Beryllium tweeters and ‘W’ cones —as featured on Focal Utopia home speaker range.
  • Allows for combination of Focal’s traditional and integrated speakers.
  • Flexible design: Wall speakers feature adjustable driver — angle them in any direction toward the optimum listening position.
  • Ceiling speakers use Focal’s patented ‘Easy Quick Install’ system, for tool-free integration.
  • Scalable subwoofer integration: Wall speakers can be paired with one, two, four, or six subwoofers (while using only one channel of amplification), to match the room size and SPL levels desired. Speakon cables provided for speaker/sub connectivity.
  • Magnetic, ready-to-paint speaker grilles.
  • In-ceiling speaker models use the same form factors as Focal 300 Series, allowing for install upgrades.
