This flax cone has been exclusively made in France by Focal since 2013. With its original design, it is 100% geared towards acoustic performance. This sandwich cone is formed of a flax fiber core placed between two thin sheets of glass fiber. Flax is a fiber with the unique ability to reproduce a very natural sound without coloration, with a rich reproduction in the midrange and clear bass strokes. Its lightness offers great dynamics, while its rigidity sustains the bass and provides good damping to deliver a faithful listening experience. Flax fiber is twice as light as glass fiber as it is hollow. Its very low elasticity makes it ideal for increasing the flexural rigidity module of a sandwich structure.
