Description

Focal Kanta N°2 Floorstanding Speakers

It took three years of research and development to create the Focal Kanta N°2 Floorstanding Speakers.

With their new materials and effectiveness-focused design that give them their powerful identity, they come straight from the engineers’ hearts.

Focal offers a hitherto unknown amalgamation of technologies: the marriage of Beryllium, in the latest generation IAL3 tweeter, with Flax, for the midrange and bass drivers. The result is precise, detailed sound brimming with warmth and musicality. This is the start of a new era for those who love sound…

TECHNOLOGY AT ITS CORE

Kanta is the amalgamation of Focal’s latest, exclusive innovations: the marriage of Flax and Beryllium, the next generation IAL tweeter, the NIC motor, the TMD suspension. It is pure performance in one perfectly mastered package. Introducing the new benchmark in the Premium Hi-Fi sector.

DISRUPTIVE DESIGN

Kanta’s design team dared to do it! We have really proved ourself when it comes to freshening things up. The look of this loudspeaker is highly original, whilst remaining true to its values: revisited Focus Time, a fantastic silhouette… Give your music a makeover!

AN IMMERSIVE HOME CINEMA EXPERIENCE

Kanta’s expertise comes into its own in a Home Cinema set-up: a set of classic loudspeakers, linked with Kanta Center, whose dialogue playback is incredible, and the Sub 1000 F… Combine this with the 300 ICW 4 ceiling speakers, and even the most exacting film fans will be blown away by an incredible 3D audio experience in Dolby Atmos, DTS X or Auro-3D.

BERYLLIUM AND FLAX

For the very first time, a Flax sandwich cone speaker has been combined with a Beryllium tweeter.

Flax is the answer to the low mass/rigidity/damping equation, leading to sound clarity and precision.

This unique Flax/Beryllium combination gives music incredible warmth and musicality. Made in France, this patented flax cone has already proven itself in Focal home and in-car speakers. The midrange speaker uses TMD (Tuned Mass Damping) suspension, and every Kanta speaker is also equipped with an NIC (Neutral Inductance Circuit) motor, which stabilises the magnetic field for perfectly defined sound and better controlled bass.

HIGH DENSITY POLYMER

Everything is designed and made to create acoustic softness and warmth: the density and stiffness of the front panel and cabinet materials, softened angles and double port vents.

The front panel is made of a new material to suit the acoustic parameters. It is moulded in one piece from High Density Polymer (HDP). This material has excellent performance: it is 70% denser than MDF, 15% stiffer and provides 25% more damping. The one-piece front panel totally eliminates any sound diffraction. Kanta incorporates Power Flow technology with two vents, on the front and rear faces, to limit bass compression.

DISTORTION IS THE ENEMY

Focal’s research is geared towards reducing distortion in every register. With the Focal Kanta N°2 Floorstanding Speakers, the treble register is reproduced by a new pure Beryllium tweeter. This IAL3 tweeter combines the IAL (Infinite Acoustic Loading) and IHL (Infinite Horn Loading) tweeters features, both of which help with the absorption of waves, thus lowering the tweeter frequency.

STYLE AND THAT’S ALL…

Focal’s engineers have revisited their choice of ‘Focus Time’, which corrects speaker alignment, making them the same distance from the ear.

The cabinet is made in one-piece integrally moulded wood. The Zamac base also brings out masses of character. With its spikes and cups, the base provides great stability from a very small footprint. Final details: the glass-covered top and magnetic grilles. When these are removed, they reveal the speakers’ flax cones, the final design touch that gives Kanta its unique look.

FINISHES

The Focal Kanta N°2 Floorstanding Speakers are offered with a matte front panel combined with a body in Black High Gloss, White High Gloss, Walnut High Gloss or Matte Walnut, providing a broad choice of contemporary combinations. The sophisticated, matte finish absorbs light instead of reflecting it, which enhances the colours.
