Focal Aria CC 900 Center Channel Speaker
2-WAY CENTER SPEAKER
The Aria CC 900 2-way centre speaker can be easily combined with the front speakers of the range. The CC 900 was developed with particular attention to timber matching in order to obtain sonic coherence and homogeneity for all kinds of configurations.
The Aria range is vast, enabling a huge array of Home Cinema configurations to match, among others, the size of the listening room. The CC 900 centre speaker is the keystone of the system. It needs to bring precision and consistency between the visual image and the sound stage. The ‘Flax’ sandwich membrane’s contribution to definition is marvellously apparent, with voices that have both intelligibility and depth.
Aria CC 900 centre loudspeaker, when used with a pair of Aria 936, two surround speaker Aria SR 900 and a Sub 300 P subwoofer, provides remarkable results, guaranteeing you a truly outstanding Home Cinema 5.1 system.
Recommended for rooms measuring from 215ft2 (20m2) and for a listening distance of 10ft (3m).
PORON SUSPENSION FOR SOFT TREBLE
For the TNF tweeter, we have brought two major evolutions to our aluminium/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.
FLAX CONE, SO ORIGINAL
The flax cones are made in France exclusively by Focal since 2013. With its original design, the cone is entirely oriented towards acoustic performance. They are made of high-quality flax fibre enclosed by two thin layers of glass fibre. Flax cones are characterized by their natural sound, with low colouration, their richness of reproduction in the midrange register and their tighter bass.
The lightness of the fibre satisfies the criteria of high internal damping, high velocity and high flexural rigidity. Flax is twice as light as fibreglass because the fibre is hollow. It also has very low elasticity which makes it ideal to increase the flexural rigidity of a sandwich structure.
