The Flax technology offers a distinct improvement in definition and better linearity in frequency response. In wall, in ceiling, on furniture or standing, Dôme comes to your place naturally and embodies brilliantly and eloquently the true Focal sound. It will be the music source for every room from 320ft2 to 430ft2.
Flax cone, so original
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 structure.
Exclusive focal technologies
After Dôme Polyglass, the original satellite loudspeaker of the range, the more recent addition to the family, Dôme Flax, benefits from the innovative composite sandwich cone made with natural flax. It has already proved its worth with the high-fidelity Aria 900 loudspeakers and the Car Audio kits in the Performance range. The Flax technology offers a distinct improvement in definition and better linearity in frequency response. Both versions are made of an aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeter, other technology developed by Focal.
Dôme is at the forefront of innovation. Its spectacular sound makes it ideal for spaces in the region of 40m2. This speaker is multi-directional and can be fitted to a wall, the ceiling or a stand with equal ease. Thanks to its combination of power and eloquence, it exemplifies the concept of ‘sound spotlights’.
Clever mix between design and technology
Dôme design is functional, sophisticated but refined. Dôme is the balance between aesthetic and technology. Its round shape is ideal to avoid internal resonances that distort the purity of timbers. Observe it well, everything is smooth, no visible screw, even the complicated system of joints on pivot is perfectly integrated and beyond suspicion. Imagined as a swivelling « sound spot », Dôme becomes an ideal music source for each and every room from 320ft2 to 430ft2.
