In-Ceiling Stereo Loudspeaker: The Focal Chorus IC 706 V ST in-ceiling
loudspeaker is designed to be used as a single stereo speaker in a distributed
audio system. It features dual 1" inverted-dome tweeters, a 6.5" polyglass
woofer, optimum phase crossover, and a stereo input.
Adjustable Inverted Dome Tweeter: The Focal Chorus IC 706 V ST
features a single 1" TNA 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. You can angle and swivel the tweeter to aim the high frequencies at
your listening area. You can also adjust the level of the tweeter to -3dB, 0dB,
Polyglass Cone Woofer: The Focal Chorus IC 706 V ST 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: The Focal Chorus IC 706 V ST
in-ceiling 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.
Wall Boost Circuitry: To reduce the "wall effect" inherent
to any built-in speaker, Focal has developed a wall boost equalization circuit
which corrects this phenomenon and makes it easier to position your speaker to
suit your preference.
ABS Chassis w/ Aluminum Grille: The Focal Chorus IC 706 V ST
in-ceiling speaker features an ABS chassis and aluminum grille. The speaker is
only available in a white finish. However, the frame and grille can be painted
to match your wall. A plastic paint mask is included to protect the speaker
components from being painted as well.
Stereo Input: The Chorus IW 706 V ST is fitted with a pair of
stereo spring post terminals that will attach your left- and right-channel
speaker wires. The spring post terminals will accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), pin connectors, and
banana plugs (single/dual). The spring posts are color-coded for easy
identification between positive (red) and negative (black).
Mounting Options: The Focal Chorus IC 706 V ST can be mounted
in-ceiling using the four integrated rotating clamps. An installation template is
supplied to help you cut your hole. The in-ceiling speaker has an overall
measurement of 9.9375" in diameter x 3.9375" in depth. It requires a cut-out of
8.6875" in diameter and a mounting depth of 3.6875" behind the wall surface. The
speaker only protrudes 0.1875" from the wall. Focal's KITMOIC706V
new-construction bracket (091ICIK706,
sold separately) can be used to simplify installation in new construction.
