Dolby Atmos speakers – ready to go
Dolby Atmos is one of the biggest hits of recent years in cinema sound. Producing a truly three-dimensional sound, Atmos immerses you in the movie soundtrack, with the sound of overhead aircraft and rain completely believable. Usually you’d need extra ceiling or speaker-top speakers to create Dolby Atmos, but with the Chora 826-D they’re built-in and so ready to go. The speakers also suit DTS:X and other 3D-object based formats.
Perfectly matched for seamless sound
The upward-firing Atmos speakers are perfectly matched to the main speakers, giving a seamless sound and even tone. Focal’s TNF tweeters and Slatefiber cones are ideal for creating a broad, spacious sound. Separate connections for the Atmos speakers let you tailor the individual front/effect levels from your Atmos AV receiver.
Ideal for big-scale, cinematic sound
With the largest cabinet in the Chora range, plus an impressive array of drivers, the 826-D punches hard. The size makes it ideal for larger rooms and effortless performance at high volume levels. Thanks to its front-facing bass port, this stylish Focal speaker works well placed closer to a rear wall than usual.
Twin woofers for thumping bass
This 3-way Focal speaker has not one but two woofers dedicated to bass; in each speaker. Delivering bass response to match many a subwoofer, the Chora 826-D digs deeper and goes louder. Ideal for under-pinning all-action soundtracks or stadium music alike, the Chora 826D delivers expansive, powerful bass.
Time alignment gives enhanced cohesion
The Chora 826-D 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 and movies 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, special effect or dialogue.
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.
Complete a Chora system
For the most immersive and consistent sound, additional Chora home cinema speakers are available. Use the 826-D with matching Chora Centre and Surround speakers and enjoy an immersive field of sound that’s perfectly tonally matched, right the way around 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.
Take your home cinema, literally, to a higher level, with the Focal Chora 826-D.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Markyweb from Love these speakers! Had a listen in the Sheffield store of Richer sounds. Look and sound fantastic. Haven't had the time to set any levels but out of the box they sound crisp and clear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dr S Latif from What a sound We upgraded our home cinema and I came across these speakers at the last HIFI exhibition before the COVID turned the lights off. DOLBY ATMOS wow, the quality is amazing and we chose Grey and it blends so well (standing in the corner) and despite the size don't look intimidating. All in all very happy, now we have a home cinema to be proud of. I will add a video if I can soon
