Our take on the Focal Super Bird

by Dave Bar
Focal

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.

Relax and unwind to the sound of the Super Birds

Here's a pair of bookshelf speakers that'll be equally at home mounted on the wall by your flat-panel TV or in your dedicated hi-fi stereo system. Meet Focal's stylish Super Birds. They feature a distinctive, curved enclosure that'll complement your décor, while delivering the kind of clear and powerful sound that sends chills down your spine.

Focal Super Bird speaker

A blend of style and substance

Focal has a worldwide reputation for making first-class loudspeakers, and the Super Birds are no exception. Each Super Bird speaker features a carefully engineered design with a 3/4" aluminum dome tweeter mounted below a 5-1/2" woofer. This combination allows the Super Birds to produce sound that's crisp and musical, like that of a traditional loudspeaker, while maintaining stylishly curved proportions. A 5-1/2" passive radiator reinforces the woofer's lower bass output.

Easy to place around your home

Everything about these speakers has been designed to allow you to easily integrate them into your lifestyle. The Super Birds can be positioned either horizontally or vertically, and come with a mounting kit for on-wall placement straight from the box. You can also add optional speaker stands to position them at ear level in front of your couch or favorite listening chair.

Lifestyle

The Super Birds are the largest models in Focal's Bird Series, and they have a surprising amount of bass for such slender speakers. Still, for truly deep bass, we recommend adding a powered subwoofer.

Driver Technology

2-Way Speaker w/ Passive Radiator: The Focal Super Bird is a two-way satellite loudspeaker with a passive radiator that produces huge, dynamic sound for its size.

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

Polyflex Midbass Driver: The Focal Super Bird features a 5.5" polyflex cone midbass driver for accurate, detailed midrange and midbass.

Passive Radiator: The Focal Super Bird loudspeaker utilizes a 5.5" polyflex cone passive radiator for added bass response.

Enclosure Design

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

Connections

Spring-Post Speaker Terminals: The Super Bird satellite speakers are fitted with spring-post speaker terminals to connect your speaker wire. The spring-post terminals of the Bird satellite speakers accept bare wire (up to 12AWG), pin-connectors, and single banana plugs. The spring-post terminals are spaced too far apart (2") for standard dual-banana plugs (0.75" apart).

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

Wall-Mount: The Super Bird satellite speakers include wall-mount brackets to hang the speakers on  your wall, next to your flat-panel TV. The included wall-mount bracket system features two pieces; a metal speaker bracket that attaches to the rear of the speaker with four machine screws, and a metal wall-mount bracket that installs to your wall with two mounting screws (all hardware included). Once the metal brackets are installed properly, the speaker bracket on the back of the Super Bird simply hangs on the wall-mount bracket. The speakers can be mounted to your wall horizontally or vertically.

Optional Floor Stands: Optional floor-stands (091SBSB/W, sold separately) are available for the Super 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 via its wall-mount bracket system. The floor-stands are sold in pairs and come in either a black or white finish. These optional floor-stands measure 42" in height and the base is 10" in diameter.

In-Stand/On-Wall Switch: There is an "In-Stand/On-Wall" switch on the back of each speaker. The switch allows you to select your mounting method and provides better sound quality for either In-Stand or On-Wall use.

Mounting Note: These speakers cannot be table-top mounted like a normal bookshelf speaker. They must either be wall-mounted (with included bracket) or placed on optional floor stands (sold separately).
