The perfect sonic match for your Aria system
If your 2-channel audio system is built around Focal's Aria speakers, the Aria CC 900 center is the natural choice for the move to multi-channel. Like the Aria bookshelf and floor-standing models, it borrows advanced technologies originally developed for Focal's acclaimed Utopia speakers. Most importantly, it uses the Aria woofer and tweeter, guaranteeing seamless voice-matched sound across your front stage.
Speaker makers continuously search for new and better materials for drivers. An ideal driver material has three qualities:
In their pursuit of sonic excellence, Focal made a surprising discovery — right in their own backyard. Woven flax can form the core of a very rigid yet lightweight speaker cone. Some of the world's finest flax grows in fields near Focal's headquarters.
Focal creates this unique cone by sandwiching a layer of hollow flax fibers between two thin layers of fiberglass. The Aria CC 900's dual 6-1/2" woofers are made of this composite.
Inverted dome tweeter looks different, sounds terrific
The Aria CC 900 also features Focal's 1" aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeter. Inverting the dome brings more of its surface area closer to the voice coil. That means the voice coil can be smaller and lower in mass. Focal has found that this reduced mass allows the dome to move faster than a conventional dome, for better high-frequency response.
And the tweeter's lightweight Poron "memory foam" suspension improves damping, which reduces distortion in the critical 2-3kHz range by a factor of three, compared to a typical suspension.
All Aria speakers feature ultra-rigid MDF cabinets with sturdy internal bracing and non-parallel sides. Focal takes these steps to eliminate the unwanted vibrations that lead to "boxy" colorations in the sound.
Built in-house for better quality and value
The speaker drivers in every Aria speaker are built in-house at Focal's facilities in Saint-Etienne, France. Why is that important? Because it gives Focal complete control over every aspect of design, manufacture, and quality control, resulting in a consistently superior, high-value speaker.Specs:
