The Aria K2 936 is a new edition of Focal’s Aria 936 model that features its iconic K2 cone and the Ash Grey exclusive finish. Aria K2 936 (£3,699 / €4.000 / $5,990 per pair) is a 3-way floorstanding loudspeaker with a small footprint and three bass speaker drivers that “offers impressive power handling and dynamics”. It features a multi-port PowerFlow system “for more impact, floor- facing vent for more depth, aluminium/magnesium TNF tweeter for silky treble, ultra-rigid MDF construction for very low vibration and outstanding neutrality: the new addition to these cutting-edge technologies is the K2 cone.”
The K2 sandwich cone in aramid fibre was revealed by Focal for the first time in 1986. Made in France, it has continued to evolve over the years, enhancing the brand’s star products and always combining the three key success factors for a speaker driver: rigidity, lightness and damping. Now comprising an ultralight foam core sandwiched between a layer of aramid fibres and a layer of glass fibres, the K2 cone “guarantees a pure and precise sound, with no colouration”. The choice of Ash Grey finish — exclusive to Focal — combined with a leather- effect front panel, highlights the loudspeaker’s style and elegance.
