Designed and developed in France
All the Focal products are the result of innovations and technologies exclusive to Focal all developed by their engineers in France. This philosophy gives enduring value to Focal loudspeakers, because these technologies cannot be found anywhere else. To stay faithful to our tradition of high-performance, a 100% Focal design is paramount. Focal believes this is the best way to have complete control over the design and quality control processes in order to guarantee high-quality products.
