Product Description

Focal Kanta No1 2-Way bookshelf loudspeakers will subtly blend into any unit or stand: it is the perfect solution for rooms under 270ft² (25m²). Entirely dedicated to acoustic performance and with a resolutely personal aesthetic: that is the Kanta DNA!

Exclusive Technology

After three years of research, Focal offers a new combination of exclusive technologies: the union of Beryllium in next generation IAL3 tweeter, and Flax for the midrange and bass speaker drivers. The result is a precise, detailed sound, brimming with warmth and musicality. It is the start of a new era for those who love sound. There’s a surprise in store right from the start of your listening experience, in the form of the extent of the bass frequency response for its dimensions. When positioned in an enclosed space or near to a wall, a piece of foam can be slid into the vent to optimise the bass even further.

IAL3 Tweeter

Focal's research is geared towards reducing distortion in every register. With Kanta, the treble register is reproduced by a new pure Beryllium tweeter. This IAL3 tweeter combines the IAL (Infinite Acoustic Loading) and IHL (Infinite Horn Loading) tweeters features, both of which help with the absorption of waves, thus lowering the tweeter frequency.

Optimised Spatialisation

The inverted dome’s spatial characteristics and very low directivity make it greatly superior to the conventional domes and this is reinforced by a newly developed waveguide. In a horizontal plane, its frequency response has a variance of +/-0.5dB. This performance guarantees an incredibly stable soundstage which makes the listening position much less critical. It is because of over twenty years of exhaustive work on manufacturing processes that it is possible to achieve such precision in a component as delicate as a tweeter.

Flax Sandwich Cone

Flax cones are oriented towards acoustic performance, high-tech and give an original design to the brand’s speaker drivers. After more than five years of r&d, engineers at Focal developed a new cone made of high-quality flax fibre core enclosed by two thin layers of glass fibre and characterised by natural sound with low colouration, richness of reproduction in the midrange register and tighter bass.

The cones satisfy the key criteria of a high-performance diaphragm; high internal damping, high velocity of sound and high flexural rigidity. Flax is twice as light as fibreglass because the fibre is hollow. It also has a very low elasticity which makes it ideal to increase the flexural rigidity of a sandwich structure. Moreover, it can be obtained in non-woven bundles of considerable diameter and it can, therefore, produce the thickness required for a sandwich.

Internal damping

Composite materials have properties suitable for applications where both rigidity and low mass are required. However, their disadvantage is that they lack damping. Recent developments in this field combining composites and natural fibres have brought unexpected opportunities. Flax fibre has an excellent internal damping of the same order of magnitude as the glass or Kevlar fibres or aluminium.

High Density Polymer

Everything is designed and made to create acoustic softness and warmth: the density and stiffness of the front panel and cabinet materials softened angles and double port vents. The front panel is made of a new material to suit the acoustic parameters. It is moulded in one piece from High-Density Polymer (HDP). This material has excellent performance: it is 70% denser than MDF, 15% stiffer and provides 25% more damping. The one-piece front panel totally eliminates any sound diffraction. Kanta incorporates Power Flow technology with two vents, on the front and rear faces, to limit bass compression.

Focus Time

Focal engineers have revisited their choice of ‘Focus Time’ which corrects speaker alignment, making them the same distance from the ear. The cabinet is made in one-piece integrally moulded wood. The Zamac base also brings out masses of character. With its spikes and cups, the base provides great stability from a very small footprint. When removed, the glass-covered top and magnetic grilles reveal the speakers' flax cones, the final design touch that gives Kanta its unique look.

Bold Aesthetics

Another strong point of the line is its bold look that puts the finishing touch on this acoustic masterpiece with a resolutely modern and disruptive design. Each finish combination is distinct ensuring there’s something for everyone. Kanta is a veritable, ultra stylish, designer object that will become the star of your interior.

The cabinet is available in High Gloss black lacquer or Walnut. With the High Gloss black cabinet, there are four front panels available; High Gloss Carrara White, Gauloise Blue, Solar Yellow and Black Lacquer. With the wood finish cabinet there are four Matte-finish front panels available; Ivory, Warm Taupe, Gauloise Blue and Dark Grey.
