Meet the 948 — the flagship floor-standing speaker in Focal's super-impressive Aria series. If you're looking for abundant sonic detail, and a soundstage that allows a deep dive into your favorite music, Focal's Aria series has the advanced technologies originally developed for the company's acclaimed Utopia models, for that expressive, audiophile sound quality.
- Flax/fiberglass sandwich woofer: The midrange and woofer cones are made of a composite of flax and fiberglass.
- Inverted dome tweeter looks different, sounds terrific: The Aria series also features Focal's 1" aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeter. Inverting the dome brings more of its surface area closer to the voice coil. That means the voice coil can be smaller and lower in mass. Focal has found that this reduced mass allows the dome to move faster than a conventional dome, for a better high-frequency response.
- Stylish, vibration-resistant cabinet: All Aria speakers feature ultra-rigid MDF cabinets with sturdy internal bracing and non-parallel sides, to eliminate the unwanted vibrations that lead to "boxy" colorations in the sound. The handsome cabinets have a traditional look, but with a few unexpected touches — a leatherette finish on the front, and a glass top surface.
- Built in-house for better quality and value: The speaker drivers in every Aria speaker are built in-house at Focal's facilities, giving Focal complete control over every aspect of design, manufacture, and quality control, resulting in a consistently superior, high-value speaker.
