Focal completes 100 Series with two new outdoor speakers
Focal has introduced two new outdoor speakers, the 100 OD6 and the 100 OD8, to its 100 Series (Integration Collection), offering quality sound reproduction together in highly weather resistant units for use in outdoor settings such as terraces and gardens.
Focal’s aim was to produce “robust loudspeakers that would stand up to all weather conditions,” and both the 100 OD6 and 100 OD8 feature a high-density, UV-treated Polypropylene damping cabinet and are IP66 Certified, having achieved an Ingress Protection rating of 66 indicating high resistance to extreme weather conditions, specifically outstanding watertight and dustproof qualities. These are the brand’s first products to obtain this certification.
Each has an aluminium inverted dome tweeter for excellent sound dispersion, and a bass/mid-range speaker driver with a waterproof Polypropylene cone and Polyglass treatment for sharp definition. High impedance (8 ohms) offers the possibility of connecting two loudspeakers in parallel on the same amplifier output.
Each unit has a reinforced, notched assembly bracket made from solid, anti-rust Aluminium, and offers the option to rotate the loudspeaker 180 degrees for optimum sound diffusion. Vertical or horizontal positioning are choices, with a rotating logo to ensure the units look “right” in either orientation. The grille and cabinet are available in black finish or white ready-to-paint finish.
100 OD6 – 8.8 × 10.1 × 12.6’’
100 OD8 – 10.2 × 11 ×15.4’’
Both models are available now.
