Giving the perfect balance between power and precision, the time aligned Focal Chora 816 hit the sweet spot.

Ideal for home cinema and powerful stereo sound
This relatively compact floorstanding speaker is ideal for home cinema or stereo systems in smaller to medium-sized rooms. Thanks to its front-facing bass port, this stylish Focal speaker works well placed closer to a rear wall than usual.

Dedicated bass for dynamic sound
This 2.5-way Focal speaker has a dedicated bass woofer in each speaker. Almost like having a mini subwoofer in each speaker, this speaker layout provides a deeper, more solid bass response. Ideal for under-pinning all-action soundtracks or stadium music alike, the Chora 816 delivers smooth, powerful bass.

Time alignment gives enhanced cohesion
The Chora 816 features a time alignment stand. This tilts the speaker upwards, meaning the sound from the tweeter and woofer is aligned in the time it takes to reach your ears. Time alignment provides better interaction between treble and mid-range, making the music sound more cohesive and ‘together’ across the frequency response.

Slatefiber cone for balanced sound
The three characteristics required for smooth, natural sound from a speaker driver are rigidity, lightness and damping. Focal’s impressive new Slatefiber cone hits all three targets – and then some. Using non-woven, carbon fibres, sandwiched between layers of thermoplastic polymer, the woofer cone provides the perfect composition for smooth, precise sound – whatever the type of music.

TNF tweeters for smooth precision
Derived from the reference Focal Utopia’s Beryllium tweeter, the TNF tweeters use aluminium and magnesium with Poron suspension for an exceptionally smooth yet detailed sound. The Poron surround reduces distortion at a point critical to human hearing, giving silky-smooth treble. The classic Focal inverted dome is also present – helping to give a broader spread of sound in your room.

Sleek style – just choose your colour
Crisp, contemporary design makes these speakers stand out, without jarring. The crisp edges contrast with the magnetically attached, rounded grille. Choose between black, dark wood and light wood finishes for a style that best suits your room.

Focus on the sound, with the Chora 816.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clarity, crisp bass I'm hearing things I didn't hear before through my Mission M74's. The front facing Bass was an important factor due to the room the speakers are in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New AV amp and speaker Purchased Visited Richer Sounds in Southampton and Rob the manager was so helpful, we tested the 2 sets of speakers we went to view and he set it all up for us in testing room and after much listening he asked if we would like to consider a 3rd Option the Focal Chora 812’s and they sounded great, He sorted us a good deal and even helped carry to car, would 100% recommend Richer Sounds Southampton and will be visiting again very soon. Thanks
