Focal Releases XS Book Speaker System


Focal-XS-Book-speakers.jpgFocal XS Book is the obvious next step after the first multimedia Focal XS 2.1 system. This time, there is no dock, no sound card, there are only active loudspeakers to join to the computer via an analog cable (RCA inputs or 3.5mm jack).

Focal technologies used in the XS Book include an aluminum dome tweeter and a 4" (10cm) proprietary Polyglass cone woofer, which permit XS Book to cover a bandwidth from 55Hz to 22 kHz, with a maximum sound pressure level of 96dB SPL at 1m. In fact, this special woofer is actually the same design as in Focal's pro monitors.

Designed to be more than a computer or desktop speaker, XS Book can reportedly accompany a flatscreen TV or be used as music dedicated speakers on a stand or on a bookshelf. It needs only to be connected to the mains, an audio signal supplied by 3.5mm or RCA inputs, and the supplied cable to connect the master speaker to the slave.

XS Book is compatible with the Omnimount AB2 norm in order to be easily combined with all accessories (on-wall fixing jointed or fixed for example).

Like all Focal loudspeakers, the XS Book is tuned by computer analysis, and then fine- tuned by ear.

US MSRP: $399
