Dome Flax Satellite Loudspeaker: Focal's Dôme Flax is a high-end
satellite loudspeaker that is made in France and incorporates Focal loudspeaker
technology from the brand's most prestigious models. The Dôme Flax uses a
two-way driver configuration with a 1" Aluminum/Magnesium inverted dome tweeter
and a 4" Flax cone woofer for a natural, multi-directional soundstage.
1" Aluminum/Magnesium Inverted Dome Tweeter: The Focal Dôme Flax
satellite loudspeaker features a 1" Aluminum/Magnesium inverted dome tweeter.
This configuration produces a precise, analytical sound and an extremely deep
soundstage. Magnesium possesses great damping qualities, while Aluminum provides
greater rigidity. The unique marriage of these two metals offers several key
advantages - rapid response, reduced distortion, and excellent damping. This
enables the tweeter to extend its frequency response to 28kHz (-3dB) with thigh
frequencies that are both dynamic and detailed.
4" Flax Cone Woofer: The Focal Dôme Flax satellite loudspeaker
utilizes a 4" Flax cone woofer. The flax cone is made in France and exclusively
by Focal since 2013. With its original design, the cone is entirely oriented
towards acoustic performance. It is made of high quality flax fiber enclosed by
two thin layers of glass fiber. The Flax cone is characterized by its natural
sound, with low coloration, its richness of reproduction in the midrange
register and its tighter bass. The lightness of the fiber satisfies the criteria
of high internal damping, high velocity and high flexural rigidity. Flax is
twice as light as fiberglass, because the fiber is hollow. It also has very low
elasticity which makes it ideal to increase the flexural rigidity of a sandwich
High-Gloss Lacquered Aluminum Enclosure: The Dôme Flax has a sleek,
sealed enclosure design without any visible screw fittings, and is made using
sophisticated materials with luxury finishes. It's round shape & design
resembles that of a spot-light, which is ideal to avoid internal resonances that
distort the purity of timbers. The enclosure is completely sealed for more
accurate sound, void of any port noise. The Dôme Flax is available in a gloss
white finish with removal grey cloth grille or a gloss black finish with a
removal black cloth grille.
Set-Screw Speaker Terminals: The Focal Dôme Flax satellite loudspeaker
employs bottom-mounted set-screw terminals which will accept bare wire up to 16
gauge. A hex-key is included to adjust the set screws.
Multi-Direction Sound w/ Flexible Mounting Options: The Focal Dôme
Flax satellite loudspeaker is multi-directional, so placement is flexible. The Dôme Flax
is ideal for rooms and spaces up to approximately 430 square feet. It can be
placed on a table-top, or mounted to the wall or ceiling.
- Integrated Table-Top Stand: The satellite loudspeaker comes with
an integrated table-top stand and a rubber foot pad which allows it to
securely set on top of a piece of AV furniture, stand, shelf, or desk. The
integrated table-top stand allows the speaker to fire directly out into the
room, or you can tilt the speaker upward (up to 90°).
- Wall/Ceiling Mount Bracket: The integrated table-top
stand also allows you to mount the speaker to the wall or ceiling with the
included mounting bracket. The rubber foot pad is removed and the included
bracket is attached to the bottom of the table-stop stand after the bracket
is secured to the wall or ceiling with the included screws. When
wall-mounted, the speaker can fire directly out into the room, or you can
tilt the speaker downward (up to 90°).
When ceiling-mounted, the speaker fires directly down into the room, or you
can tilt the speaker upward (up to 90°).
