The frames provide a convenient alternative without compromising the performance of the speakers.

Sound Performance

The Focal 1000 IWLCR6 boasts impressive sound performance, thanks to its three-way design and speaker drivers. The inclusion of a Beryllium tweeter and 'W' cone drivers sets this speaker apart from its competitors in terms of audio accuracy and clarity.

The Beryllium tweeter is known for its exceptional rigidity and low mass, resulting in highly detailed and precise high-frequency reproduction. It offers an extended frequency response and excellent transient response, allowing you to hear subtle details and nuances in your favorite music and movies.

This translates to a dynamic and natural sound reproduction, ensuring that you can fully immerse yourself in the audio experience.

One standout feature of the Focal 1000 IWLCR6 is the adjustable mids/tweeter section.

For users looking to extend the low-frequency response of the Focal 1000 IWLCR6, the speakers can be combined with in-wall subwoofers. This combination ensures a full-range sound reproduction that covers both the low and high ends of the audio spectrum. It's a great option for those who crave deep, impactful bass in their home theater setup.
