Focal Aria Evo X Center Channel Speaker
THE PERFECT SOUNDSTAGE
This 2-way centre speaker harmonises with all the Aria Evo X floorstanding loudspeakers, for a high-performance Home Cinema system. During the design process, particular attention was paid to pairing the timbres to guarantee uniformity and sonic coherence in all configurations. The speaker drivers’ Flax sandwich cone brings superb transparency to the sound and gives intelligibility and depth to the voices.
By combining the Aria Evo X Center with a pair of Aria floorstanding loudspeakers, SR 900 surround speakers and a Sub 1000F subwoofer, you will have created a high quality 5.1 Home Cinema system.
A Focal innovation, made in France, the TAM tweeter offers a wide diffusion angle and greater definition of sound, without directionality. Comprising an ‘M’-shaped aluminium/magnesium inverted dome cone, it delivers flawless harmonic balance and detailed treble of impressive finesse and clarity.
The loudspeakers in the Aria Evo X line (floorstanding, library and centre) are available in three finishes: Black High Gloss, Prime Walnut and Moss Green High Gloss. Combining leather-effect front panels with these finishes gives the products real character and sophistication. Supplied with the loudspeakers, the magnetic grilles ensure an ideal, discreet integration into any living spaces.
The TMD surround with harmonic damper is a patented Focal innovation that enhances the midrange and eliminates all vibrations. Mastering the midrange is dependent on the surround that lies between the solid frame of the speaker driver and the mobile cone. Thanks to the expertise of our acoustical engineers, we have found the answer in TMD (Tuned Mass Damper) technology, which stabilises the surround to homogenise the timbres even more and creates sound neutrality.
Patented by Focal and made in our workshops, the Flax cone is a French flax fibre sandwich between two sheets of glass fibre. It ticks all the boxes for a high-fidelity cone: it is lightweight for good dynamics, rigid to support the bass and dampening to deliver a neutral and natural sound, without colouration. It also reproduces a rich midrange and is incredibly sharp at low frequencies.
