2-Way Center-Channel Loudspeaker: The Focal Chorus CC 700 center-channel
loudspeaker employs a 2-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" polyglass woofers provide dynamic midrange and deep
TNV2 Tweeter w/ Poron Suspension: The Focal Chorus CC 700
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 CC 700
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 706
bookshelf loudspeaker utilizes an Optimum Phase Crossover (OPC) to seamlessly
blend the audio output of the tweeter and midrange/midbass drivers for a
precise, natural, and stable soundstage and image.
Solid MDF Cabinet: The Focal Chorus CC 700 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. The cabinet is an acoustic
suspension design (sealed) for detailed, accurate sound. The Focal Chorus 706
bookshelf loudspeaker is available in a Black, Rosewood, or Walnut finish. A
detachable black cloth grille is also included.
Binding Posts: The Chorus CC 700 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).
Placement: The Focal Chorus CC 700 center-channel speaker should be
centered below or above your television on a flat-surface; such as a table-top,
stand, cabinet, or shelf. The speaker comes with 4 rubber self-adhesive feet to
help secure it in place, prevent slippage, and reduce vibration.
