Ideal for a wide range of music, the powerful and dynamic Focal Chorus 716 speakers let you hear your music collection in a whole new light.

First-rate reputation

Founded in 1980, Focal loudspeakers have gone from strength to strength and are widely regarded by hi-fi aficionados as a first-rate player in speaker design. The French company is proud of its many awards and that it still builds its speakers in France – including the Chorus 700 range. Throughout its thirty plus years it has innovated constantly and features such as the inverted tweeters have now become hallmarks of the company.

Signature focal drive units
Despite being Focal’s budget range, the Chorus 700 series utilises their famous inverted tweeter design. By inverting the dome, Focal claim a superior interface between dome and voice coil. With this superior interface comes a more consistent response – especially at higher frequencies. This, in turn, helps give the Chorus speakers their high levels of precison and broad soundstaging through wide dispersion. The Chorus 700 range also features a new tweeter suspension material called PORON. This provides better dampening, for a smoother, less harsh sound. In short, the treble sounds lifelike, dynamic and less ‘shut-in’ than some but never harsh or brittle.

Matching the impressive tweeter in the Chorus 716 are similarly fine bass units. Using two woofers gives the Chorus 716 a punchy and tuneful bass that’s always quick to respond. The Polyglass cone technology is, again, exclusive to Focal and helps gives these speakers their distinct sound quality. By applying molten glass microballs to a cellulose pulp cone, the woofer unit has the rigidity of glass with the excellent damping of paper. As such, the rigidity index is superior to that of even single skin Kevlar and almost ten times better than polypropylene. Because of this construction, the Chorus 716 has a wonderfully open and transparent sound quality, allowing you to hear right into the heart of the music.

Solid yet stylish cabinet construction
With cabinets made from MDF of up to 25mm thick, the Chorus 716 speakers are a particularly solid design. Further refinements include non parallel inner wall structures, to help disperse standing waves. Combined with the intensively designed, aerodynamic bass port, this helps give the Chorus 716 speakers such a fast and pacey sound quality. The comparatively narrow width also helps the imaging further – giving an even greater impression of ‘being there’.

Obsessive attention to detail
What really marks these speakers out is the attention to detail. The grille cloth, for example, is designed to be as acoustically transparent as possible. The insulated terminals provide a well shielded and low resistance cable connection. The carefully designed OPC crossover uses high quality components for precise frequency crossover and superior soundstaging. These may all be small points but they come together to make the Focal Chorus 716 one of the finest sounding speakers in its class.

For a speaker with a unique take on sound quality, vive la difference with the Focal Chorus 716!
