Hold an outdoor concert at your place

Bring crisp, clear Focal sound outside with the Chorus OD 706 V loudspeaker. Its weather-resistant design really stands up to the elements while delivering beautiful music to your porch, patio, or pool house. Install a pair on your deck, or even in a sauna — the speaker's waterproof enclosure is fully sealed. And the included bracket lets you rotate the speaker for maximum flexibility.

Advanced driver design for natural, high-definition sound

Chorus 700 series outdoor speakers boast Focal's renowned 1" aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeter. Inverting the dome optimizes the connection between the voice coil and the dome, maximizing efficiency and precision.

The speakers' tight, responsive bass and dynamic midrange come courtesy of Focal's 6-1/2" Polyglass woofer. These drivers are 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 drivers in every Chorus speaker are built in-house at their 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

Outdoor Loudspeaker: The Focal OD 706 V outdoor loudspeaker is waterproof and resistant to common weather conditions. Its ideal for a sound system on a patio, terrace, deck, or porch. The OD 706 V employs a 2-way speaker design with a 1" inverted-dome aluminum/magnesium tweeter (TNV2) and a 6.5" polyglass cone woofer. The speaker's ABS cabinet and aluminum grill protects it from the outdoor elements. The speaker can be wall mounted or simply placed on a flat surface.

TNV Inverted-Dome Tweeter: The Focal Chorus OD 706 V 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.

Polyglass Cone Woofer: The Focal Chorus OD 706 V 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 OD 706 V outdoor 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.

ABS Cabinet w/ Aluminum Grille: The Focal Chorus OD 706 V utilizes an ABS cabinet and aluminum grille which are weather and UV resistant that protect the speaker's components from the outdoor elements. The speaker is available in a white  finish only.

Spring Posts: The Chorus OD 706 V is fitted with a pair of spring posts covered by protective rubber boots. The spring post terminals will accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), pin connectors, and banana plugs (single only). The spring posts are color-coded for easy identification between positive (red) and negative (black). The rubber boots will need to be removed or modified to accommodate banana plugs.

Mounting Options: The included weather resistance C-bracket securely holds the speaker to most any surface while offering placement flexibility. The bracket lets you mount the outdoor speaker vertically or horizontally. You can rotate the speaker 90° left/right (when mounted vertically) and 90° up/down (when mounted horizontally), letting you direct the sound to different areas as needed. The included mounting bracket features two keyhole slot and comes with mounting screws. The speaker's wedge shape makes corner placement easy. The Focal outdoor speaker also features two rear-panel 6mm threaded inserts, if you prefer to use another type of mounting bracket (sold separately). The speaker can also be simply placed on a table-top, shelf, or stand (the mounting bracket will need to be removed).

Note: The mounting bracket adds 1.375" to the depth of the speaker.
