Our take on the Focal Chorus 716

by Dave Bar
Focal

Floor-standing speakers — still standing tall

Sure, floor-standing tower speakers buck the industry trend toward smaller, visually inconspicuous speakers, but they're hard to beat if great sound is your primary goal. Tower speakers produce powerful sound with excellent bass, making them a great choice for serious music lovers and for folks who want high-impact home theater.

A handsome combination of performance and value

The Focal Chorus 716's dynamic midrange, solid bass, and high power handling make it ideal for filling medium-to-large size listening rooms and home theaters with beautiful, high-energy sound. Given its heritage, that shouldn't come as too big a surprise. The entire Chorus series borrows driver technologies developed by Focal  for their sophisticated world-class speakers, giving you high-end performance at a more budget friendly price.

Advanced design for natural, high-definition sound

Chorus 700 series speakers boast Focal's latest 1" aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeter. Inverting the dome optimizes the connection between the voice coil and the dome, maximizing efficiency and precision. Plus, the tweeter's new lightweight polyurethane micro-cellular foam suspension allows the dome to move more freely for lower distortion, greater accuracy, and smoother sound.

The 716's solid low end and dynamic midrange come courtesy of two Focal 6-1/2" Polyglass woofers. These drivers are created by depositing a layer of hollow silica glass microbeads over a layer of cellulose pulp. This unique material combines the warm sound of cellulose fiber with the incredible strength of glass, for a stiff-yet-lightweight cone that responds rapidly with extremely low resonance. A butyl rubber surround helps stabilize cone movement and provides excellent long-term reliability. Tying the drivers together is Focal's OPC (Optimum Phase Crossover) crossover network for precise, natural, and stable imaging and soundstaging.

Stylish, vibration resistant cabinets

All Chorus speakers feature thick MDF cabinets with heavy internal bracing and non-parallel inner wall structure to resist performance-robbing vibrations. The cabinets have a traditional look that's softened by slightly curved front panels. An attractive woodgrain vinyl or textured leatherette/high-gloss black finish allows the Chorus speakers to easily integrate into just about any décor.

Built in-house for better quality and value

The speaker drivers in every Chorus speaker are built in-house at Focal's facilities in Saint-Etienne, France. Why is that important? Because it gives Focal complete control over every aspect of design, manufacture, and quality control — resulting a consistently superior, high-value product.

Features

2.5-Way Floor-Standing Speaker: The Focal Chorus 716 floor-standing loudspeaker employs a 2.5-way design which combines a 1" tweeter and two 6.5" cone woofers. The 1" aluminum/magnesium inverted-dome tweeter (TNV2) features a new Poron suspension material that softens the audio performance and provides smoother sound. The two 6.5" woofers cover the bass together, but only the upper woofer is used for the mid-range. Together the dual 6.5" woofers provide dynamic midrange and deep bass.

TNV2 Tweeter w/ Poron Suspension: The Focal Chorus 716 features a single 1" TNV2 inverted-dome tweeter made of aluminum and magnesium alloy. The inverted-dome technology allows optimal energy transfer and wide dispersion. The aluminum/magnesium makeup guarantees exception performance in terms of stiffness and damping, thus ensuring a subtle blend of softness and dynamics. Performance of the TNV2 tweeter is enhanced by its new Poron suspension material. Poron is a polyurethane micro-cellular foam which has a porous open-cell structure. This memory foam is very light which means that the suspension will not become damaged or compressed with time. It is an essential element of the TNV2 tweeter as the suspension allows the dome to move freely. Its uniform and constant physical properties ensure excellent stability and linearity, along with extreme accuracy and distortion-free sound. The result is a sound which is soft and precise and which offers improved harmonics richness and a more precise soundstage.

Dual Polyglass Cone Woofers: The Focal Chorus 716 features two 6.5" polyglass woofers. The Polyglass cone woofer has been a Focal tradition for the last 30 years. This cellulose fiber cone woofer offers renowned lightness and damping characteristics. But its Focal's special surface treatment of silica micro-balls which gives the woofer a huge increase in rigidity for a negligible increase in mass. The definition and dynamic capacity of this cone, when combined with a very powerful magnet, generate a very fine reproduction, with an exceptionally rich midrange/midbass.

Optimum Phase Crossover (OPC): The Focal Chorus 716 floor-standing loudspeaker utilizes an Optimum Phase Crossover (OPC) to seamlessly blend the audio output of the tweeter, midrange, and bass drivers for a precise, natural, and stable soundstage and image.

Solid MDF Cabinet: The Focal Chorus 716 floor-standing loudspeaker features a contemporary designed cabinet with high-gloss lacquer finished sides and a leatherette baffle, back, and top. The cabinet uses solid MDF construction (up to 1" thick), internal bracing, and a non-parallel inner wall structure to reduce internal resonance for less coloration. This bass reflex type cabinet uses an aerodynamic front port for greater efficiency and to reduce distortion of the bass. The Focal Chorus 716 floor-standing loudspeaker is available in a Black, Rosewood, or Walnut finish. A detachable black cloth grille is also included.

Binding Posts: The Chorus 716 is fitted with a pair of binding posts that will accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), pin connectors, spade connectors, and banana plugs (single only). The binding posts are color-coded for easy identification between positive (red) and negative (black).

Rubber or Spiked Feet: The Chorus 716 comes with four rubber feet for tile and hardwood floors, and four spiked feet for carpeted flooring. These feet ensure better stability, no matter what type of flooring you have. The spiked feet are adjustable in height to combat against uneven floors. The spiked feet add approximately 0.4375-0.6875" to the overall height of the speaker. The spiked feet easily thread into the base of the speaker, while the four rubber feet have to be hammered into the base.

Applications: The Chorus 716 loudspeaker has been engineered to work with stereo systems, as well as with home theater systems. The Chorus 716 delivers the most faithful sound reproduction, whether you are listening to a music or movie soundtrack. Suitable for rooms up to 320 sq/ft.
