Focal’s Architectural Speakers: The Discreet Alternative for Hi-Fi Sound

Focal Speakers, Architectural-Style: The 1000 Series

If you know something about Focal, you know it is a different type of audio company. The company “rolls its own” in many ways, from its proprietary acoustic research to custom drivers and hand-built furniture-grade cabinetry. But did you know that Focal does architectural speakers too?

Despite the undeniable design and quality appearance of the company's freestanding speakers, Focal also understands some like the discrete nature of speakers that disappear into walls and ceilings. So what do you miss with Focal speakers that you don't see? The beautiful finishes, to be sure, but you'll never miss the exceptional sound. Keep reading below to learn more about the Focal 1000 Series, an elevated listening experience for both two-channel and surround sound systems in your Marietta, GA, home.

1000 Series Utopia

Focal reserves the name Utopia for its finest transducers, and the 1000 Series Utopia is worthy of the brand. The 1000 IWLCR is pure Focal in design and execution. Like their other high-end speakers, it's made in France and carries the best technology from the company’s acoustic research and proprietary drivers found in the Utopia and Sopra lines. This 3-way speaker has four subwoofer drivers with the "W" cones, two midranges with "M" cones, and Beryllium tweeters. The W cones design is especially noteworthy because of the way it masters the three key design parameters of driver design – lightness, rigidity, and damping. The result is transparent, natural sound with extremely low distortion. The IWLCR is designed to be used in two-channel as well as front-stage speakers in a home theater surround sound system. 

What do you pair the IWLCR with for home theater? The IWSUB Utopia subwoofer is the perfect partner, with a modular approach to adding subwoofers to the system. Each subwoofer unit features three 6.5-inch subwoofer drivers, which can be combined for amazing bass performance. With the right set of amplifiers, you can power all the IWLCR and IWSUB speakers with simplified installation due to the customizable speaker impedance. 

Other 1000 Series Speakers

Today's surround sound systems depend on great surround and ceiling speakers for that immersive sound experience from the best soundtracks. Focal's unique 1000 ICLCR5 is a 3-way ceiling-mounted speaker that can be tuned and customized for your room. Its adjustable midrange treble plate is ideal for Dolby Atmos and surround-sound duties while bringing the best Focal technologies to these important ancillary speakers. Rounding out the line are the 1000 ICWLCR6 3-way, the 1000 IW6 2-way, and the 1000 ICS6 ceiling speaker, which can be mixed and matched for designing any level of surround systems in your media room or home theater.
