FOCAL CHORA - A NEW LINE IN AFFORDABLE LOUDSPEAKERS

Focal's new Chora range is ready to set a new standard in affordable loudspeaker design and performance.

Made in Focal's French facility, replacing the Chorus range, Chora is a new generation of high-quality yet affordable loudspeakers. Still, they feature unique technology and design as well as the kind of performance you expect from Focal. 

Focal Chora

Fresh from the brand's workshops in Saint-Étienne, the Chora sports a unique design perfected by three new finishes. Additionally, the midrange and bass speaker drivers in the Chora loudspeakers are made of an all-new cone, offering instant sound appeal and visual charm.

Slatefiber: The New Focal Cone

Slatefiber is a unique new speaker driver material designed and manufactured by Focal in France. 

Behind its stylish, slate-effect looks hides impressive speaker cone performance, as a result of a range of technical innovations. 

Focal Chora

Focal has introduced new materials: thermoplastic polymer, with non-woven recycled carbon fibres that achieve even greater damping, rigidity and lightness.

We are promised perfect reproduction of midrange frequencies that are perfectly balanced and rich, with minimal colouration and plenty of dynamics. The soundstage is remarkable, according to Focal.

Chora Line

The Chora range consists of the Chora 826 and Chora 816 floorstanding loudspeakers and the Chora 806 bookshelf loudspeaker.

All bass-reflex designs, in addition to the Slatefiber speaker drivers, these sound solutions integrate a TNF Aluminium/Magnesium tweeter – another Focal signature – for a perfectly rendered treble.

Chora loudspeakers are available in Black, Light Wood and Dark Wood finishes. Modern, on-trend colours that fit perfectly within any style of interior.
