Recalibrate Your Expectations: French-Made Focal Theva No. 1 Bookshelf Speakers Prove In-House-Made Build and Technology Are Still Possible for Under $1,000/Pr.
Is it still possible to get a pair of audiophile-quality speakers that aren’t made in a third-party factory for under $1,000? The French-built Focal Theva No. 1 bookshelf model answers that pressing question with a resounding “yes.” Able to fit in even the tightest spaces and offering superb agility, the two-way Theva No. 1 boasts Focal’s in-house-built drivers as well as a compact profile that fits in practically any space.
Finished with an additional front panel, metallic trim ring, and rear-panel vent that permits small housing enclosures, Theva No. 1 features Focal’s signature aluminum-magnesium inverted-dome TNF tweeter and a 6.5-inch five-inch Slatefiber cone driver to deliver rich, balanced, detailed performance. If you don’t believe a 15.375 x 8.375 x 10.25-inch (HWD) speaker can provide defined imaging, controlled bass, and impressive dynamics, Theva No. 1 will change your way of thinking. Credit the decades of engineering, technology, and expertise invested in its design — as well as Focal’s refusal to risk its sterling reputation by taking any shortcuts.
Like the entire Theva family, Theva No. 1 comes ready to play both music and movies/TV fare with equal aptitude. It makes for a harmonious match with any other speaker in the series, and can serve as either a starting point in or part of a complete multichannel system that will bring you closer to the art and entertainment you love.
