Looking for a brutal amplifier with tons of power in reserve, capable of offering you a pristine and blasting sound while still on a budget? Try taking a closer look at the Chorus SW 700 V subwoofer from Focal. We're talking a subwoofer with a classic, timeless design, loaded with the latest audio technology and being most suitable for either reinforcing the bass in your existing stereo loudspeaker array or for building yourself a custom home cinema system.
The Focal Chorus SW 700 V brings forth a super-strong, redesigned cabinet, made from thicker wood and with an internal bracing design meant to further enhance its resistance to undesired vibrations and unwanted resonance; the rubber feet of the cabinet ensure both a stable placement on the floor as well as better decoupling for an enhanced sonic performance. The Focal Chorus SW 700 V is brought to life by an internal BASH amplifier which combines the fidelity of the Class A amps with the raw power of Class D units, resulting in a high-quality LF response with a most present authoritative sound that is sworn to fill even large-scale rooms with a rich sound.
The amp can deliver 300W RMS continuous power but at the same time it will effortlessly reach short-term peaks of 450W. The signal is transmitted to a Polyglass-cone 11” in diameter, with a long excursion helped by the generous rubber surround. The large voice coil produces undetectable distortions even at high pressure levels while the bass reflex port lowers the bottom-end down to a rumbling 29Hz limit.
The Focal Chorus SW 700 V sports an adjustable crossover and a phase switch allowing you to tailor the bass response according to each rooms acoustic characteristics, for optimal listening. This sub also packs features like autopower and LFE (Low Frequency Effects) inputs that will broaden the applications filed in which the Focal Chorus SW 700 V can be used. This subwoofer retails for just a bit under $800.
