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 speaker's tight, responsive bass and dynamic midrange come courtesy of Focal's 6-1/2" Polyglass woofer. The driver is 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.

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

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 surround 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.
