Description

The intention was a return to the very essence of acoustics for those who are passionate about music. Flax cone are characterized by their natural sound with low coloration their richness of reproduction in the midrange register and their tighter bass. The result is a more homogeneous sound and improved dynamics. Aria offers a classic and modern design.

Highlights

  • New Flax cone

  • New TNF tweeter

  • Speaker drivers developed and manufactured in France by Focal

  • Leather-finished body

Poron Suspension for Soft Treble

For the TNF tweeter Focal has brought two major evolutions to their aluminum/magnesium tweeter. The suspension between the dome and its bracket uses Poron a material with shape memory. This suspension method is directly derived from the famous Utopia Beryllium tweeter making it possible to reduce distortion by a factor of three in the 2-3kHz range where the human ear has very great sensitivity.

The inverted domes spatial characteristics and very low directivity already make it greatly superior to the conventional domes used by other brands. This guarantees an incredibly stable sound stage which makes the listening position much less critical.

Flax Cone So Original

The flax cones are made in France exclusively by Focal since 2013. With their original design the cones are entirely oriented towards acoustic performance. They are made of high quality flax fiber enclosed by two thin layers of glass fiber. 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 structure.

5.0 2 FOCAL Aria 926 6.5" 3-Way Floorstanding Speaker White Pair

Simply Amazing Speakers

5 FOCAL Aria 926 6.5" 3-Way Floorstanding Speaker White Pair
Reviewer: from PA, USA
Been shopping for new speakers for some time. With seemingly hundreds of speaker choices out there, it gets maddening trying to figure out which speaker is going to sound the best for the money. There is no worse feeling then looking at a pair of speakers sitting in the front of your room and knowing they burned a big hole in your wallet and you don't like them. An investment like this should bring you joy, not regret. So here is my two cents from a carpenter on a budget that loves movies and music. No technical jargon, just my feelings on the Aria 926 speakers.

Focal ranks as one of the best speaker manufactures on every major online magazines list of best speaker companies. What impressed me is that Focal is one of the few companies that research, design and build their own speakers and components at there factory in France. No off the shelf parts or outsourcing to unknown speaker companies. Not to mention they build some of the most expensive speakers in the world (Grande Utopia EM's run $229,000 a pair). They must know what they are doing!!

Initially, I was concerned about the budget so I bought a pair of the SVS Prime speakers. They sounded nice but were a little bright sounding for my taste. Then I found the Aria 926's and they sound amazing. Crisp clean sound but never harsh. If I close my eyes and listen to Crosby, Stills and Nash harmonize (think carry on when they all hit the high note), its like being 18 again at their Mann Music Center concert. Clean, clear and natural sounding; just the way it was meant to be. No matter what i throw at them - jazz, pop, rock or hip hop, they sound amazing. Room filling sound, I still can't stop smiling! Just watched the newest Mission Impossible, what a thrill. They really crank out the sound without any distortion. Bass is good and tight but they are not bass heavy. I let them crossover to the sub woofer at 60 hz and let the sub do its job.

As for looks, you can tell they are made to very high quality standards. Fit and finish is grade A. Flawless finish, heavy cast aluminum plinth, leather wrapped front and rear panel, speaker trim rings and a glass top all uzz top quality materials and workmanship. I worried the white would stand out too much but i like the look.

All I can say is if you love music and/or movie soundtracks, the Focal Aria's won't disappoint. My only regret is that I can't afford the 906 bookshelves for my rear channel right now. As for ordering from Accessories4less, very happy. Speakers shipped the same day and were on my doorstep in two days. Arrived on a pallet in perfect factory condition. Would not hesitate to order other products. You will NOT find a better price anywhere for the Aria 926's, even hard to beat the price buying used.

Room: 13' x 19'
AVR: Marantz 7012
Center: Aria CC900
Sub: SVS PC2000
Rear Surround: old pair of Energy bookshelf's for now

5 FOCAL Aria 926 6.5" 3-Way Floorstanding Speaker White Pair
Reviewer: from Wisconsin, USA
Just bought a set, cant believe how good they sound. There is some break in time required but once there they have great detail, soundstage and depth.

I originally ran a Bryston 3b st on them but have just upgraded to a Bryston 4b sst. They ate every ounce of power the 3b st could muster (120x2) but now with the 4b sst (300x2) the speakers really woke up.

They are really bright when new, take time breaking them in I have about 50 hours om them and imagine they will get even better over the next 50.

Overall a 5 star product at $3500, at $1800 I would rate them 6 if I could.
