About the Focal Vestia No.1

Eric A.

Clear, dynamic sound from a pair of compact speakers

The Focal Vestia No.1 is a relatively compact speaker pair that delivers a wide soundstage and excellent detail. They incorporate innovative tech originally developed for the company's superb Aria series. Each sleek cabinet houses a highly accurate 1" tweeter and a dedicated 6-1/2" midrange. The carefully designed drivers work together to produce robust sound that belies their small footprint. And they come in three gorgeous finishes, so you can choose the one that best matches your decor.

Advanced drivers

The Vestia No.1's drivers are hand-built in France, using a unique design process and high-tech materials. 

The midbass driver is made from proprietary Slatefiber, which uses recycled, non-woven carbon fibers as a filling sandwiched between two layers of thermoplastic polymer. It's a unique material that provides superior rigidity, damping, and lightness — the three "essentials" of a great speaker driver.

The tweeter is made from an aluminum/magnesium alloy, formed in Focal's exclusive M-shape, which increases rigidity, reduces distortion, and diffuses sound in a wider pattern. A finely tuned crossover network keeps all of the drivers working in perfect harmony.

Excellent build quality

All Vestia speakers feature ultra-rigid MDF cabinets with sturdy internal bracing to eliminate unwanted vibration. The Vestia No.1 also has a bass-reflex design with front-firing port for deeper bass response with more impact and less distortion. We recommend placing the speakers on sturdy custom Focal Vestia speaker stands (sold separately) — they're subtly tilted to focus the soundstage toward the listener for better immersion.

Features

1" M-Shaped Inverted Dome TAM Tweeter: Made in France in the Focal Workshop, the M-shaped inverted dome TAM tweeter utilizes an impressive array of cutting-edge Focal technologies to reproduce highly detailed treble with harmonic balance. The tweeter is comprised of an inverted dome, made from an Aluminum/Magnesium alloy and molded into the famous M shape - a Focal exclusive. This exclusive design offers greater rigidity, reduces distortion, and provides a wider diffusion angle - delivering the finest high-frequency detail. A urethane tweeter wave guide improves horizontal directivity for an even better soundstage.

6.5" Slatefiber Cone Woofer: The Slatefiber cone (exclusive to Focal) is a composite cone technology that involves the use of recycled, non-woven carbon fibers applied as a sandwich between two layers of thermoplastic polymer. The combination of these two materials results in excellent acoustic performance, in terms of sound velocity as well as rigidity and damping. The Slatefiber cone is characterized by its dynamic, rich and ultra-balanced sound, particularly in the midrange. In their quest for perfection, Focal engineers have opted to use non-woven carbon fibers, all pointing in the same direction to achieve even greater rigidity, better damping but also lightness.

  • Rigidity: The carbon fiber alone provides extraordinary rigidity. What's more, as they are  all oriented in the same direction, these fibers further increase the speaker driver's rigidity, and therefore enable more bass to be achieved.
  • Damping: The carbon fibers are aligned, but non-woven to ensure better damping. Thermoplastic polymer is also located within the fibers to provide the bond between them and increase damping. 
  • Lightness: In addition to rigidity and damping criteria, the Slatefiber cone is also lightweight. During the development phase, special attention was paid to the weight of the cone to optimize sensitivity. Hence, a combination of carbon fiber and thermoplastic polymer was chosen due to their lightweight qualities.

Bass Reflex Enclosure: The Vestia N1 bookshelf speaker employs a bass-reflex enclosure with an aerodynamic front-firing port for greater efficiency, bigger bass response, and low distortion. The enclosure features ultra-rigid MDF construction for controlled resonance and impressive neutrality. The front baffle is covered with a leather material for damping purposes to suppress unwanted vibration. An acoustic transparent cloth grille magnetically attaches to the front of the speaker.

Note: The speaker cabinet is available in a Gloss Black, Light Wood, or Dark Wood finish.

Binding Post Terminals: The Focal Vestia Series loudspeaker is outfitted with a set of binding post terminals that will accept bare wire (up to 12AWG), pin-connectors, spade-lugs, and banana plugs (single only). Plastic inserts inside the binding posts will need to be removed in order to use banana plugs.

Mounting & Placement Options: The Vestia N1 bookshelf loudspeaker is designed to be mounted on a stand, shelf, tabletop, or other flat and sturdy mounting surface. Rubber feet are included to isolate the speaker from your mounting surface and to protect your mounting surface (the feet add approximately 0.125" to the overall height of the speaker). The speakers can be used in a simple 2ch stereo music setup, as well as utilized as front and/or rear speakers in a home theater system. The Vestia N1 is recommended for rooms up to 323 ft² (30m²).

  • A pair of speakers should form an equilateral triangle with the main listening position. You can "toe-in" (angle) the speakers toward the main listening position to improve stereo imaging and "sweet-spot".
  • The optimum placement height for these bookshelf speakers should typically be set with the tweeters at about the same height as your ears when your are seated in your main listening position.
  • Generally, the closer the loudspeakers are to the rear wall the more the bass frequencies will be reinforced. Move the speakers away from the back and side walls if bass becomes to "muddy" or "boomy".

Note: The Q Vestia N1 does not include any bracket, keyhole-slot, or threaded insert to wall mount the speaker.

Focal Vestia Series: Made in France in Focal's own workshop, the Vestia Series combines beautifully designed cabinetry with advanced driver technology for pure sound that delivers the finest details. The Vestia Series equipped with Slatefiber cone drivers and the "M"-shaped inverted dome TAM tweeter - both exclusive Focal innovations. The Vocal Vestia Series line-up consists of three floorstanding speakers (N4/N3/N2), one bookshelf speaker (N1) and a center-channel speaker (Center).

Optional Powered Sub: For even bigger bass response, add a Focal powered subwoofer (sold separately) to the Vestia Series speakers.
