Focal TBM Tweeters Utopia M
BREATHTAKING LEVEL OF DETAIL
TBM Tweeters (Utopia M) 20W RMS, 1.5KHz to 50KHz (Price per Pair)
PAIR OF TWEETERS
The culmination of the very best of our latest innovations, our Beryllium tweeter combines for the first time ever our ‘M’-profile dome and our patented TMD®surround. With this new combination, our engineering teams have successfully extended the frequency response and obtained better dispersion. We also get a treble that is unrivalled in its precision, of great finesse, and an incredible soundstage’s width.
THE BEST OF FOCAL TECHNOLOGIES.
‘M’-profile ‘W’ sandwich cone
The new, patented, ‘M’-profile cone is the result of many years of research and our expertise in materials and their geometry. The innovative ‘M’-profile, made from a single piece, means it is incredibly rigid and perfectly combines the three criteria essential for creating an “ideal” speaker driver: rigidity, lightness and damping. The result is an extremely linear frequency response, a low distortion rate and better sound dispersion.
Upon listening, this cone delivers striking realism and level of detail, that transports you into the heart of music.
Originally developed for the Sopra line of high-fidelity loudspeakers, our TMD® (Tuned Mass Damper) surround has a unique profile, designed to better control the effects of resonance and to drastically reduce the distortion associated with deformations of the cone. The speaker driver takes advantage of this patented technology by spreading better defined and very realistic midranges’ frequencies.
The progressive spider used on all our Utopia drivers is built around a progressive section that reproduces all the impact of the bass whilst optimising the linearity, precision and dynamics of the sound.
Only metal capable of scratching glass because of its extreme rigidity, Beryllium is the perfect material for a tweeter dome. Two years of research and development led to a world first with the creation of a pure Beryllium inverted dome capable of covering over five octaves. It is an exclusive Focal technology, unique worldwide, that we have now combined with our latest innovation, the ‘M’ profile, which enables optimum dispersion and the use of a large, 1” (25mm) voice coil for improved power handling.
Utopia M range is entirely designed, developed and manufactured in France, in our workshops in Saint-Etienne. A unique and internationally recognised expertise for nearly forty years.
