Focal Chora 806
Bookshelf speakers (Dark Wood)

Two-Way Bookshelf Loudspeaker: The Focal Chora 806 bookshelf speaker utilizes a two-way driver design with a 1" TNF aluminum/magnesium inverted-dome tweeter and a 6.5" slatefiber cone woofer for precise and dynamic sound. It can be used in a stereo application, or as front and/or surround speakers in a home theater setup. The Chora Series bookshelf loudspeaker offers the most faithful sound reproduction, whether you are listening to a music or movie soundtrack. The Chora 806 works best in rooms measuring up to 269 sq/ft. TNF Aluminum/Magnesium Tweeter: The Focal Chora 806 features a single 1" TNF inverted-dome tweeter made of aluminum and magnesium alloy. The inverted-dome technology allows optimal energy transfer and wide dispersion. The aluminum/magnesium makeup guarantees exception performance in terms of stiffness and damping, thus ensuring a subtle blend of softness and dynamics. Performance of the TNF tweeter is enhanced by its new Poron suspension material. Poron is a polyurethane micro-cellular foam which has a porous open-cell structure. This memory foam is very light which means that the suspension will not become damaged or compressed with time. It is an essential element of the TNF tweeter as the suspension allows the dome to move freely. Its uniform and constant physical properties ensure excellent stability and linearity, along with extreme accuracy and distortion-free sound. The result is a sound which is soft and precise and which offers improved harmonics richness and a more precise soundstage

Focal's latest woofer design
The secret ingredient of the new Chora speakers is the Slatefiber woofer, made of recycled carbon fibers. Carbon fibers are very rigid — important for any speaker cone material. But they go beyond rigidity. These cones are lighter, more responsive, and have better damping than the Polyglass woofers of the previous Chorus speakers. As a result, the Chora 806s look to be better balanced (particularly in the midrange), offer better, tighter bass response, and respond beautifully to high-current power.

Trickle-down tweeter tech
For the Chora's high frequencies, Focal chose their TNF inverted dome tweeter. This design is known for a wide soundstage that's not seating-position critical. One new development in this iteration is the use of a material called Poron, which suspends the tweeter from its mount. This suspension is trickled down from the Beryllium drivers in Focal's flagship Utopia speakers. Think of it as memory foam. By maintaining its shape as the driver moves, it significantly reduces distortion for clearer sound.
