Our Review


The Focal Sub Utopia EM Colour Evo is an impressive addition to the Utopia III Evo range, offering a passive design and a 13-inch Electromagnet (EM) bass driver. As part of Focal's renowned Utopia III Evo lineup, this subwoofer promises exceptional performance and compatibility with other models in the range. In this review, we will delve into the design, performance, and user experience of the Focal Sub Utopia EM Colour Evo to determine if it lives up to its reputation.

Design and Build Quality

Focal is known for its attention to detail and commitment to high-quality construction, and the Sub Utopia EM Colour Evo is no exception. The subwoofer features premium construction materials, ensuring durability and longevity. The sleek design and elegant finish make it a visually appealing addition to any home theater setup.

One notable feature of the Focal Sub Utopia EM Colour Evo is its stackable design, allowing users to combine multiple units for even more powerful bass performance. This scalability is a significant advantage for those seeking to create a truly immersive and impactful audio experience. However, it's important to consider the potential drawbacks of the stackable design, such as the additional space required and the increased cost associated with purchasing multiple units.


When it comes to performance, the Focal Sub Utopia EM Colour Evo truly shines. The 13-inch Electromagnet (EM) bass driver delivers powerful and impactful bass, enhancing the overall audio experience. Whether you're watching movies or listening to music, the Sub Utopia EM Colour Evo provides deep, tight, and controlled bass that adds depth and dimension to the soundstage.

In addition to its impressive bass performance, the Focal Sub Utopia EM Colour Evo offers refined and detailed sound reproduction. The subwoofer's ability to accurately reproduce low-frequency sounds ensures that every nuance and subtlety of the audio content is faithfully reproduced. This attention to detail enhances the overall listening experience, providing a more immersive and engaging soundstage.

Another advantage of the Focal Sub Utopia EM Colour Evo is its compatibility with other models in the Utopia III Evo range. This allows users to create a cohesive and seamlessly integrated audio system, ensuring consistent sound quality across their setup. Whether you already own other Utopia III Evo speakers or plan to expand your system in the future, the Sub Utopia EM Colour Evo offers flexibility and versatility.

However, one drawback worth mentioning is the limited information available about specific technical specifications. While Focal is known for its transparency and detailed specifications, the lack of specific information about the Sub Utopia EM Colour Evo may leave some tech-savvy consumers wanting more. Without precise technical specifications, it can be challenging to fully assess the capabilities and limitations of the subwoofer.

User Experience

Setting up the Focal Sub Utopia EM Colour Evo is relatively straightforward, thanks to its user-friendly design. The subwoofer integrates seamlessly with existing systems, allowing for easy integration and configuration. However, it's important to note that the Sub Utopia EM Colour Evo requires an external amplifier for power. This requirement may add an extra step and expense for some users, but it also allows for greater flexibility and customization in selecting the amplifier that best matches their preferences and system requirements.

One potential consideration for potential buyers is the cost associated with the Focal Sub Utopia EM Colour Evo. As part of the premium Utopia III Evo range, this subwoofer is positioned as a high-end product, which may not be within the budget of all consumers. However, for those seeking uncompromising performance and a truly immersive audio experience, the investment may be worthwhile.


In summary, the Focal Sub Utopia EM Colour Evo offers a combination of high-quality construction, powerful bass performance, and compatibility with other models in the Utopia III Evo range. Its refined sound reproduction and stackable design make it a versatile and scalable option for those seeking a truly immersive home theater experience. However, the limited availability of specific technical specifications and the requirement for an external amplifier may be potential drawbacks for some users. Overall, the Focal Sub Utopia EM Colour Evo is a premium subwoofer that delivers exceptional performance but may require careful consideration for those on a budget.

Considering its impressive performance, versatility, and compatibility, the Focal Sub Utopia EM Colour Evo is a recommended choice for those who prioritize audio quality and are willing to invest in a high-end subwoofer.
