5.1.2 Dolby Atmos Speaker Package: The Focal Sib Evo
is a 5.1.2ch speaker package with two Dolby Atmos enabled front speakers, and
three matching satellites for the center and rear speakers, plus a powered
subwoofer. Its designed to provide an immersive 3D Dolby Atmos 5.1.2 surround
sound experience in rooms of 100 sq/ft to 540 sq/ft.
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.

Dolby Atmos Enabled Front Speakers: In addition to the
front-firing drivers, the front left & right speakers of the Sib Evo 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 front speakers, it
prevents you from having to install overhead speakers to reproduce Dolby Atmos
3 Matching Satellites for the Center & Rear Speakers: Three
matching satellites loudspeakers are used for the center & rear speakers.
Silk Dome Tweeters & Polyflex Drivers: Each of the front,
center, & rear speakers are equipped with a front-firing 1" silk dome tweeter
and 5" Polyflex cone woofer in a compact, custom-tuned, bass reflex enclosure to
give it extended frequency response. The front loudspeakers are equipped with an
additional upward-firing 3″ full-range Polyflex cone woofer on top dedicated to
Dolby Atmos effects.
Push-Button Terminals: All five loudspeakers are equipped
with push-button terminals to attach your speaker wire using bare wire ends (not
compatible with banana plugs, spade-lugs, or pin-connectors). The center & rear
speakers feature one pair of push-button terminals each to connect to your
receiver's center and rear speaker outputs. The Dolby Atmos enabled front
speakers feature 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 the front speakers.
Powered Subwoofer: The included Cub Evo powered subwoofer
features a down-firing 8" polyfex woofer powered by a highly efficient, high
power 200W Class D amplifier for deep, dynamic bass. The compact bass-reflex
enclosure also features a front-firing streamlined port for optimal bass
performance. The sub enclosure is made of MDF and features four integrated large
rubber feet for very low vibration and resonance.
- Controls: The Cub Evo powered sub offers volume level
control, a variable low-pass crossover (40-200Hz), and a phase switch (0°/180°).
All controls are located on the rear-panel of the powered sub.
- Connections: The Cub Evo features a stereo RCA input.
The left RCA input can be used as an LFE input when connecting a receiver
with an LFE output and internal crossover. When using only the left LFE
input, make sure you set the sub's low-pass crossover to the "LFE" setting.
The powered sub's detachable 8' AC power cord will need be plugged into an
AC wall outlet or surge protector (sold separately).
- Auto On/Off: The unit will automatically power on when
it senses an audio signal and automatically power off when there is not
audio signal for approximately 20 minutes.
Mounting & Placement Options: The Focal Sib Evo is a
5.1.2ch speaker package offers flexible mounting & placement options for the
loudspeakers and powered sub.
- Satellite Loudspeakers: In order to balance response,
place the front, center, and rear loudspeakers 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. Each
loudspeaker comes with an adjustable rubber base installed. The rear
speakers also include an angle-adjustable wall-mount bracket. The center
speaker can be mounted vertically with the pre-installed rubber base, or
horizontally with the rubber base removed and the self-adhesive rubber pad
- Power Subwoofer: By placing Cub Evo powered sub in a
corner, the room resonances will be excited in a more linear and predictable
way. Not only will bass perception be optimal, but this location will also
make it possible to boost the bass level by 6dB. If for practical reasons
you are not able to place the subwoofer in a corner, experiment positioning
the subwoofer in different places within the room until you find the best
spot. Integrated rubber feet provide safe placement on your floors.
