Focal's KANTA N°3, priced as unit


FOCAL KANTA N°3

THE BENCHMARK IN HIGH-FIDELITY


3-WAY FLOOR STANDING LOUDSPEAKER

Kanta N°3 is the reference product for the line: this Hi-Fi loudspeaker superbly combines depth, impact and articulation of the bass register. The definition and neutrality of the midrange are incredible. The next generation IAL tweeter reproduces the tiniest details with clinical precision. The result? A precise, detailed sound, brimming with warmth and musicality. It is the start of a new era for those who love sound...This acoustic masterpiece performs at its best in large rooms, from 430 to 860 ft² (40 to 80 m²).

Entirely dedicated to acoustic performance and with an incredibly original look: that, in a nutshell, is the Kanta DNA! After three years of research, Focal offers a new combination of exclusive Hi-Fi technologies: the marriage of Beryllium, in the next generation IAL3 tweeter, and Flax, for the midrange and bass speaker drivers.

Another strong point of the line is its bold look that puts the finishing touch on this acoustic masterpiece with a resolutely modern and bewitching design.

 

PERFORMANCE

EFFICIENCY, EFFICIENCY…

Marriage of materials

BERYLLIUM AND FLAX

For the very first time, a Flax sandwich cone speaker has been combined with a Beryllium tweeter. Flax is the answer to the low mass/rigidity/damping equation, leading to sound clarity and precision. This unique Flax/Beryllium combination gives music incredible warmth and musicality. Made in France, this patented flax cone has already proven itself in Focal home and in-car speakers. The midrange speaker uses TMD (Tuned Mass Damping) suspension, and every Kanta speaker is also equipped with an NIC (Neutral Inductance Circuit) motor, which stabilises the magnetic field for perfectly defined sound and better controlled bass.

 

Cabinet-work

HIGH DENSITY POLYMER

Everything is designed and made to create acoustic softness and warmth: the density and stiffness of the front panel and cabinet materials, softened angles and double port vents. The front panel is made of a new material to suit the acoustic parameters. It is moulded in one piece from High Density Polymer (HDP). This material has excellent performance: it is 70% denser than MDF, 15% stiffer and provides 25% more damping. The one-piece front panel totally eliminates any sound diffraction. Kanta incorporates Power Flow technology with two vents, on the front and rear faces, to limit bass compression

New tweeter 

DISTORTION IS THE ENEMY

Focal's research is geared towards reducing distortion in every register. With Kanta, the treble register is reproduced by a new pure Beryllium tweeter. This IAL3 tweeter combines the IAL (Infinite Acoustic Loading) and IHL (Infinite Horn Loading) tweeters features, both of which help with the absorption of waves, thus lowering the tweeter frequency.

POSITIVE REVIEW

Focal Kanta No. 3 Review - Read more: Here

" With great sound and looks, the Kanta No 3 isn’t just as a temporary diversion until the Next Big Thing. Like a grand piano, it’s both functional and beautiful – the type of investment you could cherish for decades to come." - Napier Lopez


Focal Kanta No3 Loudspeaker - Read more: Here

"The Kanta speakers have inherited two in-house driver materials for which Focal is highly regarded: the tweeter uses an inverted dome of beryllium while the rest of the drivers feature the company's Flax cones. True, Focal isn't the only manufacturer using beryllium for its tweeters, but it was one of the pioneers when most others were avoiding what is a tricky and potentially hazardous material." - Andrew Everard
