Focal Grande Utopia EM

Focal is one of France’s oldest and largest speaker manufacturers and it offers a diverse field of products that are headlined by its new Grand Utopia EM. 

Distributed in the U.S. by Audio Plus Services, Focal is the company that innovated the use of the expensive material - Beryllium - in tweeters. Focal chose Beryllium because of its ability to maintain rigidity and its ability to quickly dissipate heat, which is important for any tweeter material. 

The four-way Grande Utopia EM utilizes the company’s new 16-inch Electro-magnetic woofer design, along with an 11-inch mid-bass woofer, two 61/2-inch woofers and the company’s top-of-the-line IAL2 pure Beryllium 1-inch inverted-dome tweeter. 

Focal’s Grande Utopia EM is highlighted by its powered woofer section and its driver alignment system, which provides professional installers and enthusiasts the ability to manually align the upper driver array to ensure a wider and more focused sweet spot while eliminating any possible driver beaming.

Focal rates the speaker’s frequency response at 18Hz to 40kHz, which means if it’s used in a theater you won’t need a subwoofer. The amp friendly speaker is also rated at an 8-ohm impedance level and a 94dB sensitivity level.

Price: $180,000 per pair
