The 948 is the largest of the Aria series floor standing loudspeakers but none the less enjoys the same cutting edge technology as its larger siblings. A true 3 way design with sperate midrange unit for incredible clarity. They are available in Walnut or High Gloss Black finishes with both clad in timeless black leather on the front baffles.
It would seem an odd decision to use the Flax plant to construct loudspeaker drive units. However when you realize it is stiffer than kevlar and lighter than glass fibre with France, the birthplace of Focal loudspeakers being the most prolific producer in europe, then not only is it interesting technically but also ecologically with lower transportation costs and no reliance on petro chemical output for the raw materials.
In order to compliment the new Flax driver design the tweeter has been improved and a new aluminium/magnesium dome mounted on "Poron" memory foam suspension takes pride of place within the cabinets.
The benefit of Focal designing and building everything in house is that the drivers are built to work specifically with the cabinets which removes the need for complicated crossover networks that try and "Gel" more universal components together in different configurations.
The Net Result ? Well a range of loudspeakers that possess the ability to cut straight to the very essence of what the artist is trying to convey is what! From tight well extended low frequencies that seamlessly hand over to open mids and sweet soaring highs, the Arias will sing beautifully all day. The entire range is also sensitive enough to work with smaller high quality systems with limited power output which will also broaden their appeal.
