Focal Kanta No.1 Loudspeaker
The Focal Kanta N°1 combines performance and compactness. There’s a surprise in store right from the start of your listening experience with this 2-way speaker, in the form of the extent of the bass frequency response for its dimensions. Featuring Focal's latest technologies such as Flax cones, TMD suspension and NIC motor, the speaker is characterised by its precision, definition and neutrality. The performance of the latest generation IAL tweeter adds the finishing touch to the modern, ingenious design of this sound equipment. Its full potential is revealed in a room of less than 270ft2 (25m2).
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.
The 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. Final details: the glass-covered top and magnetic grilles. When these are removed, they reveal the speakers' flax cones, the final design touch that gives Kanta its unique look.
A wide range of combinations are available to fit into every interior space. The cabinet is available in High Gloss Black Lacquer and Walnut. For each of these, there are two front panels colours, in two finishes. With the High Gloss Black Lacquer cabinet there are two front panels available: High Gloss Carrara White and Black Lacquer. With the wood finish cabinet there are two front panels available: Ivory and Dark Grey in Matt Finishes.
