Our take on the Focal Little Bird

by Dave Bar

Why choose bookshelf speakers?

Bookshelf speakers may be small in size, but they can deliver surprisingly big sound. Some ultra-compact models even fit on a desktop. Most are right at home in tight spaces like shelves, so they're usually good choices for your home theater's rear channels. For the best performance, try placing bookshelf speakers on solid speaker stands to help the sound really "open up." If you want full bass impact, add a powered subwoofer and enjoy punchy sound that's as deeply satisfying as that of floor-standing speakers.

Tired of big, bulky speakers ruining your décor? Focal's Little Bird speakers guarantee hi-fi sound from an ultra-compact enclosure. Measuring little more than the size of a soda can, the distinctive, curved Little Birds are meant to both complement and blend in with your lifestyle. Best of all, you don't have to give up sound quality for the gain in visual appeal: careful engineering went into these gems, allowing them to fill your room with clear and powerful sound. Use them to enjoy high-quality stereo music in your kitchen or home office, or put together a compact multichannel sound system for a larger home theater or great room.

Relax and unwind to the sound of the Little Birds

Focal has a worldwide reputation for making first-class loudspeakers, and the Little Birds are no exception. Each Little Bird speaker features a carefully engineered design with a 3/4" aluminum dome tweeter mounted above a 4" woofer. This combination allows the Little Birds to produce sound that's crisp and musical, while maintaining stylishly compact proportions. Just add a subwoofer to enjoy hi-fi stereo music with your computer, television, and more.


Easy to place around your home

Everything about the Little Bird speakers has been designed to allow you to easily integrate them into your unique lifestyle. Each speaker comes with two different stands — a tripod-style "Cocotte" base and a round "Tulipe" base — so you can tailor the look of your Little Bird speaker system to your home. Both stands attach to the Little Bird speaker using a ball-and-socket joint that lets you adjust the speaker to radiate sound in whatever direction you choose. Position them on a table or bookshelf, and use the hidden cable pass-through for a clean look. You can also add optional speaker stands to position them at ear level in front of your couch or favorite listening chair. Or use the integrated in-wall/in-ceiling fixture to mount the Little Birds around your home for room-filling sound.

Driver Technology

2-Way Speaker: The Focal Little Bird is an ultra-compact, 2-way satellite loudspeaker that produces impressive sound for its size.

Aluminum Dome Tweeter: The Focal Little Bird satellite speaker employs a 0.75" aluminum dome tweeter for crisp, clear highs.

Polyflex Midbass Driver: The Focal Little Bird features a 4" polyflex cone midbass driver for accurate, detailed midrange.

Enclosure Design

Sealed Enclosure: The Focal Little Bird satellite loudspeaker utilizes a sealed (acoustic suspension) cabinet for a natural, flat response.

Gloss Black or White Finish: This ultra-compact loudspeaker features a contemporary looking cabinet in either a gloss-black or gloss-white finish (with matching grille). There is also a silver rim around the speaker.


Spring-Post Speaker Terminals: The Little Bird satellite speakers are fitted with spring-post speaker terminals to connect your speaker wire. The spring-post terminals of the Little Bird satellite speakers are very small and can only accept bare wire (up to 14AWG) and pin-connectors; these spring-post terminals are too small for standard banana plugs.

Concealed Speaker Wire: The included table-top stands/wall-mounts have a hollow body, so you can route and conceal your speaker wire. Speaker wire from Monster or AudioQuest sold separately.

Color-Coded: The spring-post terminals are color-coded (red/black) for easy identification between positive and negative.

Mounting Options

Table-Top/Wall-Mounting: The Focal Little Bird satellite speaker comes with two table-top stands/wall-mounts to choose from. You can choose from either a circular-base or a tripod-style table-top stand/wall-mount. The table-top stands/wall-mounts can do exactly that; they allow you to either place the speaker on a table, shelf, or desk; or mount the speaker to your wall or ceiling. Mounting hardware is included to wall/ceiling mount the speaker. The table-top stands/wall-mounts features a ball-on-socket joint which allows you to rotate and angle the speaker for the best possible listening position. When placed on a table or shelf with the circular-base stand, the Little Bird satellite speaker measures 4.6875" (w) x 8" (h) x 4.6875" (d). Using the tripod-style stand, the Little Bird satellite speaker measures 6.375" (w) x 8" (h) x 6.375" (d). The Little Bird satellite speaker measures 5.0625" from the front of the speaker to the wall, when wall-mounting the speakers.

Note: You must use the included table-top stands/wall-mounts to place the speaker on a flat-surface or to wall mount the speaker. The speaker does not include keyhole slots or threaded inserts for other wall-mount applications.

Optional Floor Stands: Optional floor-stands (091BSB/W, sold separately) are available for the Little Bird satellite speaker. The floor-stands features a hollow steel body for cable routing and a composite base with an iron weight for stability. The floor-stands connect to the satellite speaker via a ball-and-socket joint. The floor-stands are sold in pairs and come in either a black or white finish. These optional floor-stands measure 39" in height and the base is 10" in diameter.

Great little speakers

Written By bullmoon, ATL on Wednesday, May 09, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I bought these to use as L&R surround in a small office system - fronts are B&W 686s. The speakers blend perfectly with the system, have good frequency response, disappear in the room sonically, and look great.
