Focal Chora Center
Center channel speaker (Light Wood)

Focal's Chora Series speakers use innovative new drivers that are designed and made in-house for gorgeous, detailed sound. This center channel speaker is your go-to for clear dialogue and on-screen effects if you're building a home theater system with Chora floor-standing or bookshelf speakers. he pair of 6-1/2" Slatefiber midbass woofers in this speaker are made of recycled carbon fibers, for excellent rigidity. Compared to the woofers in Focal's previous Chorus lineup, these drivers are lighter, more responsive, and have better damping. As a result, the Chora Series can offer better, tighter bass, and respond beautifully to high-current power. The TNF inverted dome tweeter used here is known for its wide dispersion. The version in the Chora series uses 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.

Dual 6.5" Slatefiber Cone Woofers: Slatefiber technology, exclusive to Focal, involves the use of recycled, non-woven carbon fibers applied as a sandwich between two layers of thermoplastic polymer. 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 and better damping. Manufactured in the Focal workshops using an ultra-modern industrial tool, the "slate" effect of the cone provides better damping and rigidity, but also lightness - the three "essentials" of a good loudspeaker driver.

Acoustic Suspension Enclosure: The Focal Chora Center's speaker cabinet uses solid MDF construction, internal bracing, and a non-parallel inner wall structure to reduce internal resonance for less coloration. It features an acoustic suspension (sealed) design for tight, accurate sounding bass.

Grilles: The Chora Series loudspeaker comes with two detachable magnetic cloth grilles that cover the woofers. The grilles have to be aligned just right with the front of the cabinet to magnetically attach to the speaker. The tweeter features its own integrated, non-removable grille.

Binding Posts: The Focal Chora Center is outfitted with a pair of binding post terminals that will accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), pin connectors, spade connectors, and banana plugs (single only). You'll need to remove two plastic caps from the binding post terminals to accommodate banana plugs.

Mounting & Placement Options: The Chora Center can be mounted on a shelf, piece of furniture or speaker stand (sold separately - see Accessories Tab). The speaker should be centered above or below your TV.The speaker should be positioned as close to ear level height as possible when seated in your main listening position.
