Regardless of the finish chosen, the Sopra N3 exhibits a high-quality build and finish that is indicative of Focal's attention to detail and commitment to craftsmanship.

Technology and Performance

One of the standout features of the Sopra N3 is its incorporation of trickle-down technology from Focal's flagship Utopia line. This technology transfer ensures that the Sopra N3 benefits from the advancements made in the development of the Utopia series, resulting in improved performance and overall audio quality.

The Sopra N3 also utilizes an innovative Infinite Horn Loading (IHL) system, which effectively dampens the tweeter and optimizes bass performance. This system enhances the speaker's overall coherence and minimizes unwanted resonances, resulting in a cleaner and more accurate sound reproduction.

The inclusion of Neutral Inductance Circuits further contributes to the Sopra N3's exceptional performance. By stabilizing the magnetic field, these circuits ensure that the drivers reproduce sound with a high level of accuracy and precision, minimizing distortion and delivering an authentic listening experience.

Focal has also incorporated Tuned Mass Damper technology into the midrange driver of the Sopra N3. This technology reduces distortion and improves efficiency, allowing the midrange to deliver exceptional clarity and coherence.

When it comes to performance, the Sopra N3 does not disappoint. With impressive dynamics and transient response, the speaker effortlessly handles both delicate nuances and powerful crescendos. The frequency response is remarkably linear, ensuring a balanced and accurate reproduction of audio at both high and low volumes. The wide dispersion and accurate imaging further enhance the listening experience, creating a soundstage that is both expansive and precise.

The beryllium tweeter, a signature feature of Focal speakers, offers extended high-frequency response with exceptional detail and clarity. It adds a level of refinement to the overall sound, reproducing the subtlest nuances of the audio source.

Notably, the Sopra N3 excels in delivering strong and satisfying bass performance. The combination of the IHL system and the two 8.25-inch bass drivers allows for deep and impactful bass reproduction that adds depth and richness to the overall sound signature.

Setup and Compatibility

It's important to note that the Sopra N3 is a relatively large and heavy speaker, requiring assistance during the setup process. While its size may pose a challenge for some users, it is a trade-off for the impressive bass performance and overall sound quality that the speaker delivers.

In terms of power compatibility, the Sopra N3 is versatile and can work well with a variety of amplifiers, including tube amplifiers. This flexibility allows users to pair the speakers with their preferred amplification system, ensuring optimal performance and compatibility.

Additional Info


Our Beryllium tweeter features an incredibly light and extremely rigid dome, that deliver a transparent and dynamic sound. Its main limitation comes from the compression of air in the cavity behind it. But the requirement for Sopra to be compact meant that as much of the cabinet as possible had to be used for the bass. We had to explore other options for loading the tweeter, which led us to come up with the IHL system. The "IHL" system enables to load the Beryllium tweeter respecting the compactness demand of the speaker. The rear wave of the tweeter is delicately and gradually absorbed to avoid any distortion. The treble definition is pushed to the maximum


Our teams have revealed resonances which alter definition in the suspension which connects the cone to the basket. The solutions already known for increasing the damping properties of the suspension all result in an increase of the mass which consequently alters definition. The answer came from a technology used in earthquake-resistant skyscrapers and which is also used for the suspension on racing cars. "TMD" technology consists of optimising the suspension profile which controls the resonance in order to drastically reduce distortion and increase the definition of bass and midrange.


Made in France Sopra’s cabinet was designed in our cabinet-making facility in Bourbon-Lancy (Burgundy, France) using the same manufacturing process as for Utopia The 69mm sandwich-machined front panel uses the same principle as ‘Gamma Structure’ to provide inertia and damping. Its density gives it the inertia necessary to provide a stable mechanical reference for optimal definition. The inside of the cabinet has no parallel side panels, and small Helmholtz resonators have been added to the lower section to prevent vertical standing waves. We chose glass as the material for the base of the loudspeaker to provide floor coupling, using spikes, which enabled the fastest propagation time possible, thus eliminating all halo effects in the bass.
