Dolby Atmos Enabled Speakers: In addition to the
front-firing drivers, these Focal Sib Evo loudspeakers are equipped with an
additional driver on top featuring Dolby Atmos technology. This new-generation
of Dolby Atmos enabled loudspeaker is designed to reproduce both horizontal and
vertical waves (towards the ceiling). The major innovation of this technology
lies in the reflection of sound waves off the ceiling towards the listener using
an extra speaker driver on top of the loudspeaker. By integrating these upward
firing drivers into the tops of the speakers, it prevents you from having to
install overhead speakers to reproduce Dolby Atmos surround sound.
Dolby Atmos moves sound all around
you in three-dimensional space, so you feel like you're inside the action.
Rather than being constrained to channels (like many other surround formats),
Dolby Atmos can precisely place different sounds and move them in
three-dimensional space. Dolby Atmos creates a new sensation of height that
immerses you in the action, creating a full audio atmosphere and realistically
depicting objects moving overhead. Dolby Atmos renders everything from dialog
to quiet scenes to whirlwind action with astonishing clarity, richness, detail,
and depth. It all comes together in sound that excites your senses and inspires
your emotions to deliver the full impact of entertainment.

Silk Dome Tweeters & Polyflex Drivers: Each Focal Sib Evo
Dolby Atmos speaker is equipped with a front-firing 1" silk dome tweeter,
front-firing 5" Polyflex cone woofer, and top-firing 3" full-range Polyflex cone
woofer in a compact, custom-tuned, bass reflex enclosure to give it extended
frequency response and provide Dolby Atmos effects.
Push-Button Terminals: Each Dolby Atmos enabled speaker is
equipped with push-button terminals to attach your speaker wire using bare wire
ends (not compatible with banana plugs, spade-lugs, or pin-connectors). There
are two pair of push-button terminals (one for the front-firing drivers and one
for top-firing drivers). Your receiver's front and Dolby Atmos speaker outputs
will need to be connected to these terminals.
Applications: These Focal Sib Evo loudspeakers can be used
for the front or rear Dolby Atmos channels in your home theater setup.
- Placement Options: In order
to balance response, place the speaker the same distance away from the main
listening area. A minimum height of 30" is recommended in order to obtain a
coherent soundstage. You can adjust the angle of inclination of the loudspeakers
according to your listening area. It is advised not to have any obstacles
(shelves, lights, etc.) less than 3' above the Dolby Atmos loudspeakers that
could impede the reflection of sound off ceiling.
- Mounting Options: Each Focal Sib Evo loudspeaker comes with an
adjustable rubber base installed. The speakers also include angle-adjustable
wall-mount brackets with mounting hardware.
