No Expense Spared, No Outsourced Parts, No Outside Supplier
Design, development, and manufacturing under one roof have many advantages. Namely, unsurpassed quality control, customized engineering principles, and continuous synergy. The approach also allows for breakthrough technologies initially employed in reference-standard models to trickle down. Conceived in the same French facility as Focal’s world-renowned Utopia line, and subject to stringent refinement and oversight, Chorus CC 700 V harkens to a bygone era when companies spared no expense in perfecting wares. No outsourced parts or labor are employed in its manufacture; Focal needn’t depend on an outside supplier. Such care is fantastically rare in the 21st century. From the individually tailored drivers to cabinet reinforcements, CC 700 V epitomizes value and ingenuity.
New Polyglass Drivers and Inverted-Dome TNV Aluminum/Magnesium Tweeter
In French, “verre” means “glass.” Fittingly, the “V” in Chorus CC 700 V partially refers to the Polyglass drivers that have become a Focal hallmark. Newly improved, they’re largely responsible for the speaker’s timbre and dynamics. The latter also benefit from the new aluminum/magnesium inverted-dome TNV aluminum/magnesium tweeter, derived from technologies in the Grande Utopia Be. It yields significantly lower distortion, striking linearity, and flatness up to 28kHz. CC 700 V is the epitome of a reference-level center-channel loudspeaker: phase-optimized for flawless coherency and mating with every model in the Focal Chorus 700 V line.
Distinctive spacing of the dual woofers provides optimum horizontal dispersion
and maximum sonic output. Similarly, the elevated tweeter
allows greater off-axis intelligibility.
All Speakers Should Look and Sound So Good
Chorus CC 700 V is as visually striking as it is sonically wondrous. Yet the sleek looks aren’t just for show. Everything has a practical purpose. Framed by rock-solid MDF construction, the gorgeous silhouette affords an internal non-parallel structure that inhibits and eliminates standing waves, a trait that, until now, has not been available at this price point. Smart, stylish, sexy: Focal Chorus CC 700 V has it all.
"The CC 700 V actually sounds like a larger speaker; it has its limitations
with frequencies below 80 Hz, but properly crossed over in a
multi-channel system, the CC 700 V is a competent performer."
