The Chora 816 model is the floor model with 2.5-way bass reflex. The woofer and mid/bass driver, both equipped with the Slatefiber cone, work in perfect harmony for a voluptuous sound reproduction and a perfect impact on the bass side. The sound finds its full size in the listening room, with dynamic midrange frequencies and outstanding power handling. A front port is placed below the speakers to reduce distortion, and thanks to the tilt of the speaker stand, Time Alignment provides a soundstage focused on the listener.

Focal Chora 816 speakers
Aluminum/magnesium TNF tweeter
The surrounding part that connects the dome to the support uses a memory foam material called Poron. This component is derived from the famous beryllium tweeter used on the Utopia, and reduces a third of distortion between 2000Hz and 3000Hz. The spaciousness of this dome allows high frequencies to be heard from any point of the listening room.
Perfectly balanced sound
The Slatefiber technology, exclusive to Focal, involves the use of recycled carbon fibers, applied as a sandwich between two layers of polymer. In their long search for perfection, Focal engineers chose to use carbon fibers, all aiming in the same direction to obtain increased rigidity and damping.
Manufactured in the Focal workshops using an ultra-modern industrial tool, the "slate" effect of the cone offers superior damping and rigidity, but also a reduced mass - these three elements being essential for a quality speaker speaker.
Elegant, modern design
The Chora range boasts a modern design, raised on an inclined support for "Time Alignment", which offers an optimal soundstage, more focused on the listener.
