Surround Loudspeaker: The Focal Chorus SR 700 is designed to be used as a
Surround or Surround Back speaker in a multichannel home theater application.
Used in combination with Focal's Chorus 700 series tower/bookshelf/center
speakers (sold separately), the SR 700 surround speaker forms a particularly
effective 5.1ch/7.1ch speaker set-up. This Focal SR 700 successfully meets the
challenge of producing HiFi sound and guaranteeing flexibility
of use, whether for home cinema or music listening.
TNV2 Tweeter w/ Poron Suspension: The Focal Chorus SR 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.
Polyglass Cone Woofer: The Focal Chorus SR 700 features one
6.5" polyglass woofer. 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 SR 700
surround loudspeaker utilizes an Optimum Phase Crossover (OPC) to seamlessly
blend the audio output of the tweeter and midrange/midbass driver for a precise,
natural, and stable soundstage and image.
Acoustic Suspension Cabinet: The Focal Chorus SR 700
loudspeaker uses an acoustic suspension (sealed) cabinet for detailed, accurate
sound. A removable cloth grille is also included.
Binding Posts: The Chorus SR 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/dual). The binding posts are color-coded
for easy identification between positive (red) and negative (black).
Integrated Wall-Mount Bracket: The Chorus SR 700
employs a Polyfix fixing system which securely mounts the speaker to your wall.
There is a fixed mounting bracket attached to the rear-panel of the speaker and
a second bracket which is mounted to your wall (screws sold separately). Once
the wall bracket is in place, the SR 700 speaker's integrated bracket slides
onto the wall bracket for a secure mount. There are two self-adhesive rubber
bumpers which attach to the rear of the loudspeaker to prevent the speaker from
marring your walls.
