More than products a lifestyle!
Besides its distinct yellow colour, the K2 Power line has become a lifestyle object in its own right worldwide. Once more, our engineers have pushed back the limits of performance to continue making the reputation of this extraor-dinary line synonymous with power and precision!
The K2 Powers composite sandwich cone, unbeatable until now, combines three key features: rigidity, lightness and damping. This unique expertise Made in Focal combines a new patented TMD (Tuned Mass Damper) rubber surround which controls unwanted resonances to provide a clean and neutral midrange with very low harmonic distortion.
The ventilated voice-coil gap keeps the temperature of the voice-coil low and stable for increased power handling and reliability. The subwoofers have been designed to work in very compact volumes while having a very high SPL and an amazing energy!
Finally, the major innovation of this new line Made in France is the 'M'-shaped Kevlar inverted dome tweeter. This new and totally exclusive 'M'-shaped inverted dome tweeter has been specifically designed to increase precision in the very high frequencies. The push-pull motor inspired by the IAL technology dampens acoustic resonances on the back of the membrane and extends the low end of the frequency response, in a very compact housing.
