2-way bookshelf speaker

Diablo Utopia Colour Evo is the ultimate vision of the high-end reference bookshelf speaker in the purest Focal tradition. Inspired by the Grande Utopia, the Diablo Utopia offers a 16.5 cm woofer based on the Power Flower LDC (Low Dynamic Compression) system. This patented technology produces optimal bass and perfect definition in the mid-range, making it an outstanding high-end bookshelf speaker.










Diablo Utopia Colour Evo combines superlative performance with unique style. At 43 cm in height, this compact loudspeaker invites you to savor the pleasures of high-fidelity sound in the bass range, thanks to its patented, virtually unsaturable 16.5 cm Power Flower™ woofer/midrange and integrated resonator.






In addition to the Power Flower™ LDC (Low Dynamic Compression) system, Diablo incorporates the cutting-edge technologies of the Utopia range: "W" membrane, Beryllium tweeter, anti-vibration Gamma Structure, OPC filtering for perfect 3D imaging... All Focal know-how combined.






Utopia, an icon far ahead of the rest



Each loudspeaker is integrated into a separate cabinet. These cabinets form the backbone of the loudspeaker and enable "Focus Time": the perfect adjustment of the channels to the listening point.






Diablo Utopia stands out for its contemporary styling and distinctive silhouette. Metallic colors inspired by the automotive world and timeless wood finishes complete the look of this loudspeaker.




Perfectly defined midrange and bass

By developing and manufacturing its own membranes, Focal pushes the limits of innovation in acoustics. The sandwich "W" membrane of the loudspeakers plays an essential role in sound reproduction. It consists of two sheets of glass placed on either side of a central foam body; a sandwich construction that enables us to master the three key parameters of a good loudspeaker: lightness, rigidity and damping. This flagship membrane of Focal know-how perfectly optimizes the frequency response curve, providing low distortion and total listening transparency. Sound is the ultimate in precision.




For exceptional treble

Membrane shape and materials are essential for high-fidelity reproduction. For exceptional treble, our engineers have developed the Béryllium inverted dome tweeter in pure Beryllium. Thanks to its unrivalled rigidity, Beryllium is the material of choice for high-frequency loudspeakers. Developed and patented by Focal, the pure Beryllium inverted dome is capable of covering more than five octaves (1,000 - 40,000 Hz) for perfect perception of micro-details.





More energy and optimized ventilation

The performance of a loudspeaker is directly related to the magnetic energy transmitted by the magnet. To develop high-performance woofers, our engineers created the multi-ferrite magnet, or Power Flower™ technology, which brings together several stacked ferrite rings distributed around the central core. This technology combines very high magnetic energy transmission, for tenfold power handling, with optimal cooling of the loudspeaker: the spacing between the blocks allows free circulation of hot air, ensuring unrivalled ventilation of the coil. As it heats up less, it no longer represents a limitation on power, even after prolonged listening at high sound levels. Another advantage is that the coil is decompressed because it is totally open-back to the outside: distortion, linked to mechanical compression phenomena, is considerably reduced. This technology has been an exclusive Focal signature for many years.




An anti-vibration cabinet

As the surface area of a loudspeaker cabinet is greater than that of the loudspeaker diaphragms, it can radiate sounds that are distorted by the resonances of the cabinet structure. This alters reproduction and blurs the sound image. To prevent such "interference", it is essential that the cabinet is as inert as possible, that it is not emissive. At Focal, we use MDF (Medium Density Fiber) to achieve this inertia. This stable, heavy structure is anti-vibration. It has been optimized by vibratory mapping of the loudspeaker walls to reinforce or modify the structure wherever a weak point appeared.

"The ($20,998/pair) Focal Diablo Utopia Colour Evo Loudspeaker is a very fine stand-mount loudspeaker featuring a world-class tweeter and Focal’s excellent woofer with enough of the French manufacturer’s whizz-bang tech to pull everything together. What you’ll get for your purchase is a loudspeaker capable of giving endless amounts of power even in a large room. Even then, it never loses its coherence or poise. And, the tweeter is one for the ages. Back in the day, it was Esotar tweeter this, Esotar tweeter that. Truly, the Prince of Dome Tweeters. Now, the King of Dome Tweeters commands the stage. It’s a marvellous device and brings a lot of value to a complete loudspeaker. And definitely audition-worthy if the budget is there. Highly recommended. " - Anthony Kershaw
