SMALL IN SIZE BUT BIG IN PERFORMANCE
TWO-WAY BOOKSHELF SPEAKER
The high end bookshelf speaker Electra 1008 Be embodies Focal's know-how in terms of high-end compact loudspeakers. It provides a spacious and natural sound image, optimised definition, precise bass and a great sound restitution. The high power-handling enables it to work in rooms of 40m2 and more.
Made in France in Focal’s workshops in Saint-Étienne, Electra 1008 Be takes up a minimum amount of space and offers stunningly high performance for optimal integration in the listening room.
The compact hi-fi loudspeaker Electra 1008 Be takes up a minimum amount of space and offers high performance for optimal integration.
Optimised acoustic performance
The 'W' composite sandwich cone permits total optimization of the frequency response curve, thanks to the total control of three key parameters: lightness, rigidity and damping. These unique characteristics of lightness and rigidity provide control of the signal transmission speed inside the material.
IAL TWEETER (INFINITE ACOUSTIC LOAD)
Electra 1000 Be loudspeakers feature an innovative technology called IAL (Infinite Acoustic Load). This technology enabled us to design a tweeter with a very wide frequency range capable of extending very low down in frequency response, for relaying the midrange much earlier. This technology allows the frequency range to which the human ear is sensitive to be reproduced by the ultra-light tweeter with exceptional definition.
Due to its incredible rigidity, Beryllium represents the ultimate material for a tweeter dome. After two years of research and development, Focal produced a world first: a pure Beryllium inverted dome, able to cover more than five octaves. You will improve the perception of transients and other micro details. As well, the linearity of the speaker’s response curve is mainly a function of three opposite parameters: lightness, rigidity and damping.
