Dome Polyglass Satellite Loudspeaker: Focal's Dôme Polyglass 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 Polyglass uses a
two-way driver configuration with a 1" Aluminum/Magnesium inverted dome tweeter
and a 4" Polyglass cone woofer for a natural, multi-directional soundstage.
1" Aluminum/Magnesium Inverted Dome Tweeter: The Focal Dôme Polyglass
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" Polyglass Cone Woofer:
Dôme Polyglass features a Polyglass cone woofer that ensures neutrality, excellent dynamics and a
precise sound image. Polyglass technology, exclusive to Focal, consists in
applying molten glass microballs on a cellulose pulp cone. This process combines
an excellent paper damping with glass rigidity. The rigidity index exceeds even
that of a single skin Kevlar and is almost 10x superior to one of polypropylene.
The mass/rigidity/damping ratio adjustment results in outstanding linearity of
the frequency response curve, all from the inherent design of the cone. This
innovation also greatly increases definition in the midrange.
High-Gloss Lacquered Aluminum Enclosure: The Dôme Polyglass 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 Polyglass 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 Polyglass 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
Polyglass satellite loudspeaker is multi-directional, so placement is flexible. The Dôme Polyglass
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 85°). When
ceiling-mounted, the speaker fires directly down into the room, or you can
tilt the speaker upward (up to 85°).
