Focal’s new Littora line of speaker drivers was designed for yachts and spaces located in coastal and wet environments.
The arrival of this offering follows the July 2021 opening of the Focal Powered by Naim showroom in Cannes, France, the first floor of which is designed to replicate a boat interior. In addition to its products, Focal offers advice on the configuration and placement of speaker drivers, acoustic testing measurements, on-site sound design, and sound tuning.
Littora 1000 and Littora 200
The Littora range includes two series of in-wall and in-ceiling speaker drivers: the Littora 1000 (the flagship series) and Littora 200.
Made in France and inspired by the Utopia line of in-wall/in-ceiling products, the Littora 1000 offers two speaker drivers — 1000 ICW8 and ICW10. They are complemented by the 1000 ICW SUB10 subwoofer, lending themselves to party use as well as ultra-high-quality listening sessions.
Littora 200 is the second series. The 200 ICW6 and ICW8 speaker drivers combine compactness and performance, delivering wide sound coverage. Three outdoor loudspeakers are the final additions to the Littora 200 series: OD Sat 5, OD Stone 8 and OD Sub 12, for enjoying Focal sound in outdoor settings such as gardens, terraces, and poolside.
To meet the needs and respond to the constraints of marine and coastal environments, Focal engineers have developed the Fiber IP cone for the Littora 1000 series and the Iris IP cone for Littora 200, combining very high sound quality with impressive resistance. These brand-new products blend performance, discretion, ease of integration but also perfect resistance to all weather. In particular, they benefit from IP65 certification, an international standard designating the levels of protection offered by a material against the ingress of solids and liquids. The range therefore boasts perfect waterproofing and resistance to outdoor elements.
For a custom system and listening experience, an angled bracket is provided as an accessory, with three sizes available (6″/15cm, 8″/20cm and 10″/25cm), enabling you to determine the tilt of the speaker driver and play the sound in the direction of your choice. It is also possible to adapt the sound of the speaker drivers by simply clicking on the button on the back, depending on whether they are to be used indoors or outdoors.
