Focal has introduced Theva; a new range of loudspeakers combining pure hi-fi sound, design and accessibility. The six-model range will be unveiled at Axpona (Audio Expo North America) from April 14–16 in Schaumburg, a suburb of Chicago, Ill.
One Line, Six Loudspeakers
With Theva, Focal has created a complete range for all circumstances. Theva N°1 is the compact bookshelf loudspeaker; Theva N°2 the new 3-way floorstanding loudspeaker with an ultra-slim profile and 5-inch (13cm) speaker drivers – a first for Focal’s home floorstanding loudspeakers. The Theva N°3 is the 3-way floorstanding loudspeaker; and Theva N°3-D is the loudspeaker that incorporates a speaker driver to facilitate Dolby Atmos sound. Not forgetting the 2-way Theva Center center speaker for delivering crystal clear film dialog, and Theva Surround, the loudspeaker for spatialized audio.
Made in France in Focal’s workshops, the speaker drivers incorporate Slatefiber technology, an exclusive cone known for reproducing a dynamic, rich and balanced sound; effectively used in numerous products for the home, recording studios, and in-car audio systems. Also made by Focal, the TNF tweeter delivers a mellow, clear treble frequency. The loudspeakers feature tilted stands for optimum Time Alignment, creating a soundstage focused purely on the listener.
Design and Finishes
Black, Dark Wood, and Light Wood finishes complement the speaker design. Dark or light wood effects are available for the side panels, too, for added aesthetic flair. The black finish offers a timeless, sophisticated tone. The enclosures have been revamped to be more compact, while the additional front panels provide an elegant finish and serve to make the products even more robust. Finally, Focal has carefully chosen metallic, screen-printed rings to frame the speaker drivers, the vent has been positioned to the rear as to not interfere with the sleek front panels, and the bases and grilles work in harmony with each model.
