THE COMPACT MODEL
2-WAY BOOKSHELF LOUDSPEAKER
Inspired by the pure heritage of Focal bookshelf loudspeakers, Vestia N°1 combines finesse with compact design while offering a detailed listening experience. This 2-way bass-reflex loudspeaker combines Focal technologies, such as the Slatefiber cone with its recycled carbon fibers made in our French workshops, and the ‘M’-shaped inverted dome TAM tweeter to enhance the treble.
Thanks to a choice of harmonious and refined finishes - black or white leather-effect front panel, Black High Gloss, Dark Wood or Light Wood side panels - these loudspeakers can be easily installed in any interior. They are designed for all music lovers and blend seamlessly into rooms of up to 323 ft² (30m²).
Available as an optional extra, the stands - specially designed for Vestia N°1 - have a “tilted” profile which allows the soundstage to be more focused on the listener, for even deeper immersion and more emotions.
THE SLATEFIBER CONE
Slatefiber technology, exclusive to Focal, involves the use of recycled, non-woven carbon fibers applied as a sandwich between two layers of thermoplastic polymer. In their quest for perfection, Focal engineers have opted to use non-woven carbon fibers, all pointing in the same direction to achieve even greater rigidity, better damping but also lightness – the three “essentials” of a speaker driver. The Slatefiber cone is made in France in the Focal workshops.
THE ‘M’-SHAPED INVERTED DOME TAM TWEETER
Also made in France in the Focal workshops, this tweeter comprises an inverted dome cone, made from an Aluminum/Magnesium alloy and molded into the famous ‘M’ shape – a Focal exclusive. This profile lends it greater rigidity, reducing distortion, with a wider diffusion angle. It delivers an even finer treble.
The Vestia loudspeakers feature a vent towards the front for more frontal impact, in addition to one at the back for an encompassing bass: a bass-reflex profile which enhances the depth of the soundstage.
