2-way bookshelf speaker

Theva N°1 is the compact speaker in the Theva range. This bookshelf model fits easily into small spaces. Thanks to the tilting function of the dedicated stand (available as an option), the soundstage is centred on the listener (Time Alignment). Benefiting from exclusive Focal technologies, the Theva N°1 loudspeaker delivers hi-fi sound quality, promising great listening at home.









Thanks to the TNF tweeter and Slatefiber diaphragm driver, two exclusive Focal technologies, Theva N°1 delivers crystal-clear treble and precise, balanced midrange/bass for hi-fi quality sound.






Whether it's an inset front, a sleek black or wood finish, metallic rings, magnetic fabric holders or a slate-effect membrane, refinement is in every detail. Combined with materials such as metal, concrete or stone, these finishes blend into any interior and underline the uniqueness of living spaces.


Create an uncompromising Home Cinema system with Theva hi-fi loudspeakers. Theva N°1, Theva N°2, Theva N°3, Theva N°3-D, Theva Center, Theva Surround and the SUB 600P subwoofer combine perfectly for a complete cinema installation.








The Theva N°1 high-fidelity loudspeaker stand is 55 cm high, and has been specially designed to raise the speaker to its full height. The stand is secured by a screw system that guarantees system stability and prevents vibration. What's more, the stand is tilted for Time Alignment, for a more listener-centric soundstage.

This stand is available as an option.






Treble finesse

Made in France in our workshops, the TNF aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeter delivers smooth, clear treble. The surround that connects the dome to its support uses Poron, a shape-memory material. This surround is directly derived from Focal's famous Beryllium tweeter, and reduces distortion by a factor of three between 2000 Hz and 3000 Hz, the most sensitive zone for the ear. In addition, a waveguide has been developed to perfect spatialization and further improve the inverted dome's very low directionality. In the horizontal plane, the frequency response is within +/- 0.5 dB. This performance guarantees an incredibly stable soundstage.



Dynamic, balanced sound

Exclusive to Focal and made in France, the Slatefiber membrane is made from recycled carbon fiber and thermoplastic polymer. In their quest for perfection and as specialists in loudspeaker membranes, our engineers have chosen to use non-woven carbon fibers in this in the same direction to achieve even greater rigidity, damping and lightness, the "essentials" of a good loudspeaker. Renowned for its dynamic, rich and balanced sound reproduction, this membrane has proved its worth on numerous products for the home, for professionals in recording studios, and also for listening in the car.






Focal Theva No.1 Bookshelf Loudspeaker Review - Read More

"As with many other products that I have reviewed from Focal, the Theva’s are an eminently competent design and are sure to please. There are no significant missteps with these speakers, and they have aspects where they really shine. For many regular folks, $1k is a lot of dough for a pair of bookshelf speakers, but the Theva No.1s have earned their pricing. Were I looking for a pair of bookshelf speakers in this price class, I would strongly consider them." - James Larson
